“Spider-Man” star Tom Holland recently said that he was one of many who hadn’t been trusted with the “Avengers: Infinity War” script, but the same can’t be said of Benedict Cumberbatch.
Cumberbatch, 41, admitted he was one of the few as he spoke about the eagerly anticipated film during an appearance on Friday’s “The Graham Norton Show”.
The actor explained, “I was allowed to read the whole script so I do know what is happening, but I can’t tell you about it. What I can say is that I am helping the world and worlds beyond it – potentially.”
Cumberbatch was then quizzed about whether or not this movie could mark the end of his character Doctor Strange. However, he was adamant he wasn’t going to give anything away.
The star insisted, “Let that rumour take flight.”
Cumberbatch also detailed the moment he put on his full costume for the very first time, gushing: “There was a moment. I remember when I put on the whole thing and looked in the mirror and just started laughing like a 12-year-old. It was my superhero moment!”
During his interview, Cumberbatch also revealed that he once divulged “Star Trek” spoilers to the late Stephen Hawking:
The British star’s latest interview comes after he revealed earlier this week that there were no plans for a “Doctor Strange 2”.
Fuelling rumours that fans could be saying goodbye to the beloved character, Cumberbatch told the Radio Times, “I know the latest is that I might not make it out of this film alive. It’s only [written at] the end of the first film, ‘Doctor Strange will be back’. I have been back, in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, and obviously in [‘Avengers: Infinity War’].
“There’s nothing to say, either contractually or otherwise, that he’s coming back again. I haven’t seen the film, so God knows, that might be it.”
“Avengers: Infinity War” hits theatres April 26.
