Benedict Cumberbatch Stephen Hawking

Science was big at the movies late in 2014. At one point, Interstellar, The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything were all playing simultaneously, representing three different eras -well, two eras and one potential – in science. Removing the big budget film, you’re left with Benedict Cumberbatch playing the man who invented the computer as a way to break code in World War II and Eddie Redmayne in a biopic of theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking.

With all that in mind, fast forward to this weekend. Both The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything, as well as Redmayne and Cumberbatch, will be competing for the same Golden Globe awards on NBC. The night before, over on Discovery, a 2004 made for TV movie called Hawking will air. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch. Watch the trailer or, if you like, the full movie below. Read More »

Two such recent instances are fan art of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange and Gal Gadot in some upgraded Wonder Woman armor. Check them out below. Read More »

Doctor Strange logo Official

Director Scott Derrickson gave Marvel fans an early Christmas present late Sunday night when he posted an image that appears to be Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange.

But either way, it’s an endorsement from the director of the Phase Three film set for release November 4, 2016. Check out the mysterious Benedict Cumberbatch Doctor Strange image below. Read More »
