Benedict Cumberbatch Says Bollywood Should Be Part Of The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Benedict Cumberbatch’s leading man, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, opens today. The movie has had an amazing box office performance with Rs 30 crore on pre-sale in India and is predicted to be a huge box office hit in India.


In a recent interview, Benedict Cumberbatch discussed the Indian film business and how the Marvel Cinematic Universe could have an Indian superhero. He had previously made a statement that Shah Rukh Khan could be a great addition to the MCU.

Speaking to a leading publication, Benedict Cumberbatch said: ‚ÄúThere are incredible Indian actors, whether they were born in the UK like obviously Sir Ben Kingsley or Dev Patel, who I’ve been lucky enough to work with. I mean it’s obvious that you have an incredibly talented and incredibly thriving film culture and you’ve done it for years. I love filmmakers who have done work in English and you guys have had a big influence. I think Bollywood needs to be a part of the MCU. Maybe have a mass dance and bring in the first Indian superhero.”

Cumberbatch was also asked whether he viewed India as a competitor to Hollywood or merely a source of revenue for Marvel movies. The actor shared that he thinks everything is fine. They both had their own place and it didn’t have to be an either/or situation.
