Sherlock promotion is hotting up, as we get ever closer to the first episode of Series 4 and the official photos are now surfacing online. See them in the gallery here and here. On a side note Benedict started filming ‘The Current War’ yesterday alongside Marvel’s Tom Holland (Spiderman), I’m sure they will be working more with each other in the upcoming Avengers.
I’ve added the promo photos from Saturday Night Live! to the gallery, check them out here.
Benedict is also on the front cover of the new issue of Vanity Fair magazine. The photo shoot by Jason Bell is stunning . There is a massive interview with Benedict, which you can read online here as well watch a video of him performing a magic trick. This is a must purchase!

Benedict is on the front cover of British GQ, which is on sale Thursday 6th October. Here are some excerpts from the interview:
Benedict Cumberbatch on the last series of Sherlock
“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. We never say never on the show. I’d love to revisit it, I’d love to keep revisiting it, I stand by that, but in the immediate future we all have things that we want to crack on with and we’ve made something very complete as it is, so I think we’ll just wait and see. The idea of never playing him again is really galling.”
Benedict Cumberbatch on Brexit
“I was in Wales when it happened. And there is such poverty in Wales. There are real problems. Real problems. You know, we used to film in Merthyr Tydfil, one of the most impoverished places in that country, and of course people are angry. Of course people want change. What people are f***ed off about is that they were promised change that won’t happen.”

@ScottDerrickson has revealed the front cover of Entertainment Weekly with Benedict as Doctor Strange. He looks perfect for the role.
Entertainment Weekly have released some more promotional photos from the movie, which you can see in the gallery here. The photos are taken by Michael Muller. Here are some excerpts below from the article, which you can read in full here.
“[Benedict] was someone that we were very interested in for a very long time,” reveals Feige. “But he kept getting more popular, and more popular, and he kept getting busier, and busier, and it looked like the timing wasn’t going to work. So we looked at some other actors for a while and ultimately decided, ‘We have to try and make it work with Benedict and with his schedule.’”
“There’s all sorts of craziness [in Doctor Strange],” says Cumberbatch. “Falling, flying, jumping, fighting, punching, getting punched. It’s really rough and tumble.”
The New York Times did short films of ‘Great Performers’ entitled: 9 kisses in 2014 and Benedict was performing his kiss with Reece Witherspoon. The photo shoot is in the gallery already but here is the short film below, which we hadn’t previously posted.
I have screen capped the Vanity Fair photo shoot and have added HQ caps to the gallery.

The New York Times magazine has also released this video called ‘Benedict Cumberbatch Hates Internet Speak’, you can listen to some interesting clips from Benedict in between hearing the journalist talk.
On sale October 30th, Benedict is featured on the front cover of Elle UK magazine. Below is a series of quotes and photos from the interview.
“I always seem to be cast as slightly wan, ethereal, troubled intellectuals or physically ambivalent bad lovers. But I’m here to tell you I’m quite the opposite in real life. In fact I’m a f***ing fantastic lover.”
“Everyone wants to know when I’m going to settle down and who is going to be Mrs Cumberbatch. I can’t wait to do an interview and just talk about my child. My mother’s daughter from her first marriage had a kid when I was about 11. I thought, ‘Wow, this is incredible, they come in much smaller sizes!'”
