Re: Cumberbatch in Star Wars 7

I didn't think while watching STID that he would make a great Sith. If he does get cast that could be up to 3 movies with him. So maybe Khan won't be woken again until they do the Next Gen Reboot. Jean Luc Vs Khan! F*ck yeah!

Except this time Thrawn would have white skin.


Also, the fact he is Thrawn would be a closely held secret, which fandom will figure out several months in advance anyway.

“Of course I’d love to do Star Wars and work with JJ Abrams again because we had such a good time on Star Trek,” he says. “But nobody has been cast and there are no offers out to anyone apart from the regulars who are returning. So that’s that rumour quashed.”

Then he adds with a grin: “We’ll have to wait and see.”

Re: Cumberbatch in Star Wars 7

I would love to have Cumberbatch in the SW movies. He'd make a kick ass Sith. Hell, I'd accept him as a Palpatine clone (see: Dark Empire comics), just straight up fucking over anyone that got in his way.

Re: Cumberbatch in Star Wars 7

Latino review seem to really believe he's in it.

Time for a debunk of our own…


DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE ABOUT BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH NOT BEING IN STAR WARS. HE IS IN THE MOVIE!

In fact, he will be in all three Star Wars films! It’s all a smoke screen. Folks, remember when Cumberbatch denied being Khan for over a year? Same situation here. At least give us the benefit of the doubt hence why we are bringing this up. Point is, he lied before and he can lie again. Google it.



One more time because it is worth repeating, Benedict Cumberbatch will be will in the upcoming Star Wars movies.

I don’t care if he denies it till opening day. We were right before about him playing Khan, and we will be right again on this one.

Technically, his part in Episode VII is very small but the role is much bigger in Episode VIII and Episode IX.

If it's a tiny role in Ep. VII, maybe he still Khan come back for Star Trek XIII? *hopes*

That was my thought as well. A small SW role would make it far easier for Khan to return. We'll see.

Was anything ever said about Cumby signing for more that one Trek films? I don't remember any mentions.

Re: Cumberbatch in Star Wars 7

Ah, so there's a possibility he'll be in Star Wars because and there will be until we see the movie's credits and that he's not in the movie all because of all the denials that he would be playing Khan? This is the perfect example of why the constant secrecy surrounding STID was a mistake, it sets precedent for anything to be believed.

Re: Cumberbatch in Star Wars 7

I find this "controversy" particularly inane. It's one thing to keep a secret about whether or not a character is in a film (that's sort of a plot reveal). But whether or not an actor is in the film? Who cares?
