Watch: Cumberbatch Finally Addresses Those ‘Doctor Strange’ Rumors

MTV – When fans want a casting rumor to be true, they’ll make any connections necessary to support the theory. That’s how Benedict Cumberbatch coming to San Diego Comic-Con for “Penguins of Madagascar” became a sideways confirmation that he’s playing Doctor Strange, at least for the people who want him to be.

Not satisfied with speculation, when MTV spoke with Cumberbatch for his first ever Comic-Con interview to promote “Penguins of Madagascar,” we also had to ask if there was any truth to the rumor that he would be Marvel’s next Sorcerer Supreme.

As far as I’m aware, even if that was the case, it couldn’t work out because I’m doing a little play called ‘Hamlet’ in London. So I don’t think I could even if that was in the cards. It sounds like a fantastic project. It’s a shame if I miss out, but who knows?

Watch: Benedict talk Sherlock, ‘Penguins’ and more

While attending Comic-Con, Benedict did an interview to Hero Complex, which sadly can’t be embed, in which he talks about his recent projects: Penguins of Madagascar, The Imitation Game and, of course, Sherlock. And on his next project on stage, Hamlet.

I’m of an age now where it’s now or never. If I can bring a new audience to it, that means a lot to me.

You can watch the whole interview on Hero Complex website and view screen captures in our gallery.

‘The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies’ Teaser Trailer Premieres At Comic-Con

MTV – War is coming to Middle-Earth, and no side will walk away unscathed.

The first teaser trailer for “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” premiered at San Diego Comic-Con during the Warner Bros. panel at Hall H, paving the way for one final showdown in Middle-Earth. The trailer boasted massive scenes of action, including Smaug laying Laketown to waste, and the titular five armies rushing to war with each other — and yet, it felt somewhat subdued, taking on a mournful tone of loss.

One of the big surprises of the teaser is the music: “Edge of Night,” the song that Pippin Took sings for Denethor in “The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.”

The emotional song plays over images of desolation: Legolas and Tauriel looking over the ruins of Laketown, Galadriel planting a kiss on a fallen Gandalf’s forehead, and Thorin and Bard shouting at each other as the reluctant truce between dwarf and man breaks.

“You can have peace, or war,” Bard shouts. Thorin, wearing his crown, makes his choice: “I will have war.”

By the end of the trailer, Thorin and Bard’s misguided battle cries give way to the calmer words of wisdom from Gandalf, who pleads with the dwarves: “Will you follow me one last time?”

In addition to the “Hobbit” footage, the cast and crew of the film appeared on the Hall H stage to talk about the creation of all things Middle-Earth. In attendance: Peter Jackson, producer Philippa Boyens, Benedict Cumberbatch (Smaug and The Necromancer), Cate Blanchett (Galadriel), Orlando Bloom (Legolas), Evangline Lilly (Tauriel), Lee Pace (Thranduil), Elijah Wood (Frodo), Andy Serkis (Gollum), Luke Evans (Bard the Bowman), and Graham McTavish (Dwalin).

“The Imitation Game” To Open BFI London Film Festival

It was annnounced this week that “The Imitation Game” will open the 58th BFI London Film Festival.

The film will receive its European premiere on Wednesday 8 October at the Odeon Leicester Square with a live cinecast from the red carpet and simultaneous screenings taking place at cinemas across the UK. Stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley, and director Morten Tyldum are expected to attend the London event.

The pioneer of modern-day computing, Turing is credited with cracking the German Enigma code and the film is a nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British establishment, but his work and legacy live on.
