Will Benedict Cumberbatch Reprise ‘Sherlock’? Says ‘It’s The End Of An Era,’ But Also ‘The Idea Of Never Playing Him Again Is Galling’

Benedict Cumberbatch knows a mind-blowing magic trick with water, according to Cnet. The 40-year-old actor, who debuts himself as the Sorcerer Supreme in Marvel’s Doctor Strange later this month, has just shown off an amazing magic trick.

Benedict Cumberbatch, whose voice is so charming it makes thousands of his fans melt, is apparently also good with his hands! The Sherlock star just showed off his superhero powers to defy gravity and prevent water from spilling out of a bottle.

If that sounds bizarre already, Benedict Cumberbatch holds the bottle upside down, and even emerges a pen in it to prove that the viewers are not being tricked with some visual effects.

Benedict Cumberbatch recorded the video especially for Vanity Fair.

The video is a clear advertisement to promote the conservation of water around the world. In the video, Benedict Cumberbatch says that the world must take care that “we don’t waste our resources.”

“Don’t waste water. Turn that tap off while you’re brushing your teeth. And drink lots of it.”

Benedict Cumberbatch revealed that it was his magician friend Kevin James who showed him how to pull off the clever water trick. But viewers still can’t figure out if it’s all a visual trick or the actor is actually able to defy gravity.

Marvel’s Doctor Strange starring Benedict Cumberbatch hit theaters on October 27 in Australia and is set to debut in the United States on November 4. And although his fans are excited to see him play Doctor Strange in the new Marvel flick, it doesn’t mean they’re less excited for new BBC’s Sherlock episodes.

Earlier this month, a Sherlock writer revealed that Benedict Cumberbatch is “very keen” to play Sherlock Holmes in future seasons of the hit BBC show, according to the Irish Examiner. Even though Cumberbatch has previously indicated that the next season could be his last, writer Steven Moffat believes the actor is still excited to wear the detective’s hat and solve life-threatening riddles.

Just recently, Benedict Cumberbatch indicated that the upcoming fourth installment of Sherlock, which will debut early next year, feels like “the end of an era” to him. However, the writer claims that there are still talks about making new Sherlock seasons happen and insisted that the actor didn’t mean the show was about to end.

In his interview with the Press Association, Moffat said the media misinterpreted Benedict Cumberbatch’s words and claimed the actor is actually “very keen” to continue playing the iconic role of the detective.

“We haven’t even put the new series out yet. We haven’t talked to the BBC about another run. It’s the click-bait era turning something that was nothing at all into a story.”

In his recent interview with British GQ magazine, Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays in the hit BBC series alongside Martin Freeman (Doctor Watson), insisted he would “never say never” to continuing playing the role but added that the show felt “complete.”

“It might be the end of an era. It feels like the end of an era, to be honest. It goes to a place where it will be pretty hard to follow on immediately.”

Benedict Cumberbatch added that he loves reprising his role of Sherlock, but said that “in the immediate future we all have things that we want to crack on with” and insisted that Sherlock was already “very complete as it is.”

“The idea of never playing him again is really galling.”

The new season of BBC’s Sherlock starring Benedict Cumberbatch will feature three episodes and the BBC even teased that the upcoming series will be the most “shocking” and “surprising” yet.
