Actor Benedict Cumberbatch said ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ was definitely going to be a success. The 45-year-old actor who featured in the movie as Dr. Stephen Strange felt that super hit blockbuster film starring Tom Holland as the web-slinging superhero, was a big success and celebration for “Spiderman”, on the big screens.
Benedict Cumberbatch came in the ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’, and said, “Well, I think it’s a testament to Jon Watts and the three… Jacob (Batalon), Z (Zendaya), and Tom.
“They’ve got this beautiful John Hughes homage mixed in with the ultimate universal love there is for that kid. That hero, for Spider-Man and Peter Parker. And it was such a good script. Such a good concept. And then there was that ‘little secret’. It was so much fun.”
The ‘Doctor Strange’ in the Multiverse of Madness’ the actor said he enjoyed the blend of the drama and the humour in the movie. The movie saw the return of the previous Spideys Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield on the screens.
Benedict said, “And what I think they did so blindingly well was just to mix humour with pathos. To mix surprise with elation and expectation and confound expectation. They managed to pull off a huge feat. Which apart from anything else, because throwing in Tobey and Andrew meant that you were celebrating like 20 years worth of filmmaking on top of all that.”
The actor says it was exciting for him in the role of “Doctor Strange”
Other than that the actor also said and explained how he was excited about challenging himself in the ‘Doctor Strange’ sequel, which sees him take on multiple versions of his superhero alter ego.
The Sherlock actor said, “You have to get a correlation so that you know you’re watching an iteration that basically through perhaps choices or circumstance and environment has had a different outcome. But it’s a nice sort of loop feeding into self-discovery and self-therapy for the character that we know from our universe, as to how he betters his choices or the situation. So it’s a fun thing to explore.
“It’s one of the paradoxes that a multiversal narrative will throw up, and I was excited by that challenge.”
