Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock was named Best Actor Movie/Miniseries at the Critics’ Choice Awards last night in Beverly Hills. But Bendy (which is a much better nickname for him considering how seemingly elastic his face is, and this serves him well creatively, doesn’t it?) was in England, attending the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man and didn’t collect his prize. Full Story

Last week I wrote about the consistent rumors dogging Benedict Cumberbatch and his possible involvement with Marvel. The emergent rumor is that he could be Ant Man, and I said—I thought I said—that Ant Man is a boring character with a stupid superpower, and that if Cumberbatch is going to go superhero, I hope it’s a more interesting character with cooler powers, like Dr. Full Story

Could not resist. So Benedict Cumberbatch has been hanging around Marvel since late last year, prompting a lot of talk about what he’s doing and the inevitability of his involvement with one of their properties. The natural assumption—mine included—was that he would play Dr. Strange. Because if Cumberbatch was ever going to go superhero, it would have to be the guy called Strange. Full Story

This is Lucy Liu on the New York set of Elementary yesterday, a new Sherlock Holmes pilot for CBS. Liu is “Joan Watson”, the sober companion to Jonny Lee Miller’s Holmes who’s just come out of rehab. Needless to say, the purists are punching themselves in the face out of frustration. Look, I’m ok with Watson being a girl, and an Asian one too. Full Story
