Arguments for: -Cumhards want it. The Batchies are passionate. They could drive sales of the magazine. -Oscar campaigning for The Imitation Game and Harvey Weinstein is on his side. -Dr Strange rumours. No word yet on who it is but if he is Marvel’s newest superhero, it could be a well-timed announcement to start building anticipation -He’s a good actor with a nice voice Arguments against: -Cumhards are mad at him for getting engaged -He’s internet famous but is he widely famous? Go back to what I said about attraction being a bubble and the internet giving illusions about how universally appealing or popular someone or something is. Full Story

A reader called Maureen emailed yesterday: “I am honestly shocked that no one has coined the term ‘Cumhards’ for the crazy Cumberbatch fans.” Cumhards makes sense. Because the Batchies behave in similar ways to Twi-Hards, especially on social media. Cumhards ask questions at film festival screenings like, “Can I have some of your yummy-ness” which is not as hilariously insane as tattooing Robert Pattinson’s face on your back but I’m sure we’re almost there. Full Story

Oh noes… How are you over there Cumber-crazies? You OK with this wakeup call? A notice of engagement appeared in The Times today. Very subtle. Very classy. Very Cumberbatchy. Very fitting of someone called Benedict Cumberbatch. This might be my favourite thing about Benedict Cumberbatch – the way he announced that he’s to marry Sophie Hunter. Full Story

Someone sent me a link to a Benedict Cumberbatch story this morning with just the words: “You’re welcome.” So I clicked. I will not be thanking this person. Sorry. Because she thought I would get all wet and rubby over how Benedict Cumberbatch describes how he would f-ck as Sherlock Holmes. Full Story

The casting for Dr. Strange, Marvel’s next signature superhero, has become such a clusterf*ck that for a couple of months now, it has seemed just as likely that a three day old breakfast burrito would play the part as an actual human actor. The latest rumor, coming yesterday courtesy Deadline Full Story

Check out Benedict Cumberbatch on the set of the Hollow Crown yesterday in England. As you know, I don’t crank for Cumberbatch. But I’ll say here that I don’t mind him in cape and dressed in royal robes. Maybe because, back then, people from royal lineage were all sleeping with their uncles and cousins. Full Story

Marvel is still looking for Dr Strange because it definitely won’t be Joaquin Phoenix. His publicist released a statement the other day confirming that negotiations are “dead, dead, dead. A couple of weeks ago they mutually decided to part ways. It was over before the New York Film Festival”. Full Story

It’s mid-October, which means that award season is in full swing, and as such the actors starring in award bait are beginning to lay the foundation of their Oscar campaigns. We’re still over a month away from Benedict Cumberbatch’s The Imitation Game opening in the US, but he’s got a profile in Out in support of the film. Full Story

The Imitation Game opened the London Film Festival the other night and Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley showed up looking all kinds of glamorous. Cumberbatch is at his best in Sherlock drag, but the suit porn is good, too, and this is some prime suit porn. If Cumberbatch is your flavor, then you’ll enjoy these photos as they’re like the double-chocolate malt equivalent of The Batch. Full Story

Nicholas Hoult for Jaguar

I feel like picking a fight today. A reader called Natalie just sent me these videos: Nicholas Hoult’s ads for Jaguar. Or, rather, Nicholas Hoult playing a nerd villain for Jaguar? Despite the fact that he dated Jennifer Lawrence for a few years, Hoult is not a household name. I’m not sure he’s even internet famous. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch gets ahead of the game

Benedict Cumberbatch has a GREAT new interview with TimeOut London in which he talks about both his Oscar chances and the kingmaker grooming him for center stage. The Batch is always an interesting interview for several reasons: 1) He’s 38 and fame came late-ish for him, striking in his mid-thirties after he’d had a chance to fully form—they’re better when it happens that way, as Lainey recently pointed out Full Story

It's my birthday tomorrow. And look at my gift to you! New photos of Benedict Cumberbatch on set of the BBC2 production of The Hollow Crown: The War of the Roses. Sarah always talks about his voice. Cumberbatch fans love the voice. And now the voice is doing Shakespeare. With his hair longer and wavy and wet. Full Story

In the eyes of his "Cumberbitches" online, Benedict Cumberbatch is a hero. In The Imitation Game, he cracks the code of his hype and fandom, and finally gets to play one. How? It's elementary. As WWII codebreaker Alan Turing, Cumberbatch is a mathematical genius who also happens to be a pompous, socially awkward outcast. Full Story
