And the sherlock The actor recently revealed the part of his Marvel role that he finds “mortifying.”

Benedict Cumberbatch made his MCU debut as the main character in 2016 strange doctorbefore cross with the other heroes in Avenger: Infinity War and End of Game. He has already starred in two huge marvel movies in phase four, you would therefore think that the 45-year-old actor would be used to playing the Sorcerer Supreme. But he said Twitter that it is still sometimes difficult to make the movements of the hand of his character, especially without making strange noises. As Cumberbatch said,

It’s difficult. I don’t find it funny, I find it a bit mortifying. I realize some really cool stuff will eventually show up with them, so like you do, being a kid in a bedroom just making stuff up. You just have to believe it. However, creating sound effects is a bigger issue, especially during battles. You end up doing [makes grunting noises]. Some are necessary, some are not.

He makes a good point. While fans can see the epic finished product with every new Marvel movie, it’s very different to do projects like Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Benedict Cumberbatch really has to trust the visual effects process when casting spells because there’s no awesome sound or visuals around him. Then there are the involuntary noises he makes in the middle of the fight choreography.

We’ve seen multiple versions of Strange throughout his run, and he’s apparently been greatly altered by the experience. The the mid-credits scene teased the character’s futurewhich will undoubtedly call upon Cumberbatch’s uncomfortable experience with spells and action scenes.
