Mads Mikkelsen tipped to face off against Benedict Cumberbatch in Doctor Strange

11 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Mads Mikkelsen may be about to say goodbye to Hannibal, but he's already eyeing his next villainous role.

The Casino Royale star is in early talks to join Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel's Doctor Strange.

Seriously, you might as well prime your browsers to book tickets for the premiere date now, because the words "high demand" are an understatement - especially when the Hannibal and Sherlock fandoms are involved.

An offer is due to be made to Mikkelsen soon, according to Variety - although Marvel has declined to comment.

He's expected to play an antagonist to Stephen Vincent Strange (Hamlet and Sherlock star Cumberbatch), with Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor among the cast.

Mikkelsen also joined the cast of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story recently - and for once, he's not playing a nefarious ne'er-do-well.

"No, my character is actually not a bad guy, and I can't say any more, »

Andrew Scott: 'Sherlock fans aren't nuts, they're passionate and I like that'

23 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Andrew Scott absolutely loves that fans of Sherlock have an "all-consuming passion" for the BBC One series.

You'll no doubt be familiar with Scott's villainous sneer from his show-stopping turn as the devious Jim Moriarty opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat's update of Sherlock Holmes.

Speaking to Red, Scott said that he has nothing but love for Sherlock's dedicated and extremely enthusiastic fanbase.

"There's this assumption about fans that they're nuts. But they're people that are really passionate, and I like that," he explained.

"Everyone has that when they're young and as we get older that passion – that real, all-consuming passion – gets knocked out of you and you become cynical."

Having already captured the hearts of one massive fanbase, Scott is now turning his attention to the James Bond franchise with a key role in Spectre.

Scott described his character Max Denbigh as a major »

Mads Mikkelsen in talks for Doctor Strange villain

27 August 2015 1:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fresh from his casting in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, it seems that Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen could be set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Variety reporting that he’s in talks to play a villain in Doctor Strange.

This isn’t Mikkelsen’s first brush with the McU, as he originally signed on to play Malekith the Accursed in Thor: The Dark World, before a scheduling conflict forced him to drop out, with Christopher Eccleston then securing the role.

Doctor Strange is set for release on October 28, 2016 in the UK and November 4, 2016 in the Us, with Scott Derrickson (Sinister) directing a cast that so far includes Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) as Stephen Strange, Tilda Swinton (Snowpiercer) as The Ancient One and Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) as Baron Mordo.

Martin Freeman on First ‘Sherlock’ Audition: ‘They Thought I Was a Moody Prick’

27 August 2015 9:27 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Edinburgh — Martin Freeman has revealed how his first audition to play Doctor Watson in the BBC’s “Sherlock” didn’t go according to plan.

Interviewed at the Edinburgh Television Festival, the British star revealed that he had to be invited back for a second audition before he was offered the part opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in one of the most successful TV series of recent times.

“I had to do two auditions before I got the role,” he recalled to interviewer Mark Lawson. “My agent told me they hated me and thought I was a moody prick. … I went back again and read with Ben.”

The rest, as they say, is TV history. Or not quite. Because the original “Sherlock” pilot was rejected and had to be reshot as a 90-minute episode.

“It seemed a bit, silly, but happily I was extremely wrong,” said Freeman, who had landed his first TV »

Captain America: Civil War promo art reveals the two teams

27 August 2015 8:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month we heard a rumour about the two “teams” set to form in Captain America: Civil War, and now some promotional art has surfaced via Comic Book Movie which suggests that Heroic Hollywood’s initial report wasn’t entirely accurate (so no surprise there, then). If you don’t want to be spoiled as to which Avengers will be joining Captain America and Iron Man, turn back now…

Still here? Okay, first up is Iron Man’s team…

And Captain America’s…

So, if you’re familiar with the original rumoured rosters, you’ll notice that Spider-Man is absent from Iron Man’s team, replaced instead by Black Panther, while Agent 13/Sharon Carter features on Cap’s team as opposed to Scarlet Witch. You may also notice that Ant-Man is standing atop Hawkeye’s shoulder, »

Sherlock: new Benedict Cumberbatch action figure unveiled

27 August 2015 4:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

What's 5 inches tall, made of plastic and solves crimes? Why, this new Sherlock Holmes action figure...

Sherlock fans with Christmas lists to draw up might want to include this little beauty on their notes to the North Pole. Due out in December from Underground Toys, it's a five-inch action figure of Sherlock Holmes as played by Benedict Cumberbatch in the BBC series.

Little Sherlock comes complete with poseable arms (useful for gesticulating, ruffling his hair after crashing through glass windows, and playing the violin), an iPhone, a tiny human skull, and of course, the Stradivarius.

Here's a closer look at the figure, in and out of the box:

The Sherlock action figure is expected to retail for around £14.99, but early birds can get a few quid off that price by pre-ordering via the BBC shop here, where it's selling for £12.99.

Jeremy Renner says it’s unlikely we’ll see The Avengers team with Guardians of the Galaxy

26 August 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Phase Three building towards The Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 & 2 and Thanos appearing in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, many fans assumed we would be seeing Earth’s Mightiest Heroes crossing paths with the Guardians.

Well, according to Jeremy Renner. We probably won’t.

“You’ll be eighty years old by then, and I won’t be Hawkeye anymore,” he told the crowd at Wizard World Comic Con about a possible crossover. “I’ll be Dead Guy.”

Gunn himself shot down rumours of the two teams getting together after the release of his Phase Two movie.

7 reasons Benedict Cumberbatch shouldn't fear the mixed reviews of Hamlet

26 August 2015 12:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Updated: Read the critics' verdicts on Benedict Cumberbatch's radical reinvention of Hamlet, post-press night

As Shakespeare himself might have exclaimed: "Huzzah!" Thanks to the presence of a certain film and TV megastar, the Barbican's latest production of Hamlet has eclipsed everything else in Theatreland ever since it was first announced back in March 2014.

And don't worry: despite a mixed response from the critics on - and before - press night, Digital Spy can confirm it's both extraordinary and unmissable. But more importantly, with Benedict Cumberbatch in it, along with elements linked to Game of Thrones and even The X Factor, it might just be the most DS-ish cultural event this year, seemingly laser-targeted to excite you. And here's why:

1. Benedict Cumberbatch is ace in it

Just in case you hadn't heard, Britain's foremost TV & film star is playing Hamlet himself - and whether you're a drooling fan or mere interested observer, »

U.K.’s Channel 4, NBCU Partner on Dark Comedy ‘Flowers’

25 August 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Edinburgh — U.K. public broadcaster Channel 4 is partnering with NBCU’s new comedy subscription VOD service on a dark comedy featuring a dysfunctional family.

“Flowers,” announced by Channel 4’s chief creative officer Jay Hunt at the Edinburgh TV festival, which bowed Aug. 26, stars Olivia Coleman as music teacher Deborah. Despite barely speaking to her husband, Maurice (played by Julian Barratt), she is determined to keep the family together. This is despite her suspicions that Maurice — a children’s author — is in a secret gay relationship with his Japanese illustrator.

The show is penned by Will Sharpe, an English-Japanese writer whose credits include “Sherlock.” He said: “This is a comedy about people who are struggling and the situations that can arise when you refuse to admit that there are problems. Our aim is not to make light of the darkness. But to find the light within it.”

During an appearance at Wizard World in Chicago this past weekend, Jeremy Renner has revealed which side Hawkeye will be taking when Captain America: Civil War kicks off next year.

Taking part in a Q&A, Renner was asked how he felt about Hawkeye siding with Captain America in the Phase Three-launching threequel, responding that: “I don’t know. They wrote me in that side. It made sense to me.”

Rumour: Marisa Tomei’s Aunt May to appear in Captain America: Civil War

25 August 2015 12:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We heard back in July that Marisa Tomei (The Wrestler) is set to take on the role of Peter Parker’s (Tom Holland) Aunt May in Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man reboot, but a rumour from Heroic Hollywood (sorry!) is suggesting we won’t have to wait until 2017 to get our first look at Aunt Tomei.

According to the site, Tomei has secretly filmed scenes for next year’s Phase Three launching Captain America: Civil War, which wrapped its production this past weekend. Take this as unconfirmed, but with Spider-Man appearing, it certainly wouldn’t be a surprise to see May Parker making an appearance…

Amanda Abbington: ‘I don’t want to be a princess’

23 August 2015 1:45 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Amanda Abbington, star of stage, screen and Sherlock, toiled for 20 years before her big break. As she dons her detective gear in new BBC drama Cuffs, she tells Emma John about her passions – for hard work, her family and other animals

Seven-year-old Gracie has no problem dishing the dirt. When I ask her if she has a secret about her mum she can share with me, she speaks up immediately. “She has a tarantula!” she says.

Amanda Abbington, sitting next to her daughter, nods. The actor and Sherlock star, also known as the lovelorn Miss Mardle in Mr Selfridge, confirms that there is indeed a pet spider in their home called Ariana. They also have a cat and three rescue dogs, and the family has recently said farewell to Nelly the hamster, who passed away last month. “If I could, I’d be like Doris Day and just have a big farm, »

Captain America: Civil War footage, huge Star Wars announcement , Toy Story 4 – D23 Recap

21 August 2015 3:17 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Disney don’t do Comic Con. They’re better than that. They’ve got their own thing going on. It’s called the D23 Expo.

Scary number connotations aside (seriously, Google ‘the number 23’…or just rent the Jim Carrey movie), D23 is an enormously important event in the movie news calendar. This year saw huge announcements on Pixar’s upcoming slate (revealing Toy Story 4 through to 116 – Joke), the first look at Captain America: Civil War and Star Wars land.

This special preview of next month’s Flickering Myth Movie Show has our esteemed panel discussing the Expo’s announcements, and a bunch of other stuff, too. It also reveals what, exactly, ‘D23′ stands for. Check it our below…

The full September edition of the Flickering Myth Movie Show – including an in-depth look at the Fantastic Four fiasco (alliteration points) – goes up on Sunday 31st August. Set a reminder in your generic smart phone device. »

Rumour: Who will Spider-Man fight in Captain America: Civil War?

Yesterday it was revealed that new Spider-Man Tom Holland has joined the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Berlin to shoot scenes for Captain America: Civil War, and now a rumour has emerged over at Heroic Hollywood (where else?) claiming that the wall-crawler will be duking it out in a fight scene with one of the Avengers!

Does Shunning the Emmy Campaign Limelight Hurt a Nominee’s Chances?

20 August 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Out of sight, out of mind — but does that apply to Emmy campaigns?

Every year, Emmy hopefuls work the circuit by shaking hands and answering questions at endless events. But some keep a low profile, including this year’s nominees Frances McDormand, Amy Poehler, Kyle Chandler, Louis C.K. and Mo’Nique. Their reasons include work commitments and/or a tendency to avoid the media.

But awards pundits continually fret over how much the campaigning — or lack thereof — affects the outcome.

Last year, the teams from “Modern Family” and “Breaking Bad” seemed to be omnipresent — and both shows won Emmys. But “Sherlock’s” Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman were nearly invisible — and they won as well.

Campaigners want to make sure Academy of Television Arts & Sciences members see the work before they vote. That’s especially challenging with the Emmys, given the sheer number of categories, and nominees. As FX Networks »

Now you can own all 5 inches of Sherlock's Benedict Cumberbatch

19 August 2015 2:53 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

You will soon be able to own all five inches of Benedict Cumberbatch when his new action figure is released this November.

Underground Toys is releasing a new Sherlock figure, which comes with the detective's mobile phone, violin and a skull, just in time for Christmas.

As Topless Robot notes, the new five-inch Sherlock doesn't look particularly impressed, perhaps because he's a smaller scale than other figures in Underground's range, which includes fellow BBC show Doctor Who.

Real life Cumberbatch hasn't been smiling much either recently, as he pleaded with fans not to film performances of Hamlet, in which he is currently appearing at London's Barbican.

Early reviews for Cumberbatch's performance have been mixed - ranging from "electrifying" to "Hamlet for kids raised on Moulin Rouge".

Meanwhile, Mark Gatiss has reassured fans that there is no end in sight for Sherlock.

The hit BBC series will return for a special »
