Benedict Cumberbatch: Sherlock Is Stranger Than Doctor Strange

Jovi Figueroa

Benedict Cumberbatch reveals at the Comic-Con 2016 that one, he thinks Sherlock Holmes is a lot more stranger than Doctor Strange; and two, that Doctor Strange is more important than the Avengers.

Well apparently, Doctor Strange is not quite as strange as his title makes him to be. Benedict Cumberbatch, the actor playing Doctor Strange in upcoming Doctor Strange movie, reveals at the Doctor Strange panel at the San Diego Comic-Con 2016 that if you want strange, the place you look is 221 B Baker Street.

There have been some parallels with the characters than Cumberbatch plays and of course, one can't help but put Doctor Strange and Sherlock Holmes beside each other. When Cumberbatch was asked at the Comic-Con 2016 panel whether he thinks playing the character of Sherlock Holmes for BBC's much-loved TV series has prepared him for his role as Doctor Strange, he responds, "No, not really. Dr. Strange is..."

"Strange?" Mark Gatiss continues for him. Benedict Cumberbatch disagrees.

"No, no. Sherlock is a lot more effing strange than Strange, strangely enough. I think that's the difference: Strange is fully humanised. He does seek control through the perfection of his work."

"He's a workaholic, but he does have emotional ties and relationships. He's a man of the sensory world, and Sherlock certainly is trying to curtail those appetites to concentrate on being the best consulting detective in the world."

If you think Doctor Strange and Sherlock Holmes has a lot in common, not too much, actually. Culturally, too, Cumberbatch is approaching Doctor Strange and Holmes differently.

"And culturally they're utterly different. One's very English, one's very American."

"There's an evolution to all the characters. There's a lot of that in the new season… A lot of things come home to roost. It's the thing of what's familiar, and it's the thing of what confounds expectations."

"It's a genuine rollercoaster. The learning curve is massive -- with jokes! There are some great jokes. But there are quite a few tears."
