Benedict discusses ‘The Courier’ with Uproxx

He also had a few words to say about upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Read the interview below:

The weird thing about interviewing Benedict Cumberbatch is he’s hilarious. And it’s an easy thing to forget because he’s not exactly known for making uproarious comedies. But during an interview, he’ll wait for his moment to strike with just the right amount of sarcastic wit and, well, it gets me every time. (On this occasion he wasted very little time.)

Though, on this occasion there was a slight sense of frustration radiating from his usually cool demeanor. And, honestly, it’s understandable. Cumberbatch is starring in The Courier and he’s pretty fantastic in it. It’s a role you can tell Cumberbatch put his heart fully into, going as far as to lose a dramatic amount of weight to portray the real-life Greville Wynne, a British businessman who was enlisted by the government to spy on the Soviet Union during the Cold War. (If you look back at photos of Cumberbatch from late 2019, he’s impossibly thin, representing Wynne after he was released from Soviet custody.) Yet, this is a movie flying under people’s radars. Cumberbatch is diplomatic about the whole thing, but, yes, it’s obvious he really wants people to see this movie and he’s got a really good case.

Also, as we were literally out of time, I asked Cumberbatch if we could just cut to the chase and he could say something hyperbolic about Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and the, again, always hilarious Cumberbatch did not disappoint. But, first, he asked why my Zoom video wasn’t working.

Due to the COVID-19 outbrack, which has closed movie theaters around the world, Disney has changed several of its productions release dates. The Doctor Strange sequel was supposed to be out on May 7, 2021. See more below:

The coronavirus quarantine has shuttered theaters around the world, and when Disney halted the release of its live-action Mulan and Marvel’s Black Widow, it created a traffic among the rest of its upcoming releases.

Today, the studio announced a new slate of debut dates over the span of the next two years, which postpones nearly all the upcoming Marvel movies, and further delays Harrison Ford’s return in Indiana Jones 5, which once upon a time was supposed to open in summer 2019.

Mulan was previously set to open last weekend, but now it has been assigned the somewhat optimistic new date of July 24, bumping another Disney movie, Dwayne Johnson’s Jungle Cruise, from that weekend to a release more than a year later, on July 30, 2021.

The multiverse is the next step in the evolution of the MCU, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is gonna crack it wide open in ways that will have repercussions for a Disney+ series just before it, that’s not WandaVision, and for movies just after it in a big, fun way.
