It’s the week every Marvel fan has been waiting for!
Kevin Feige’s next MCU movie is THE hot cinema ticket this festive season, with Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) crashing most major cinema sites when tickets were dropped this month.
And now Benedict Cumberbatch’s action-movie star status has apparently gone to his head, with a video showing him running from security at the premiere on Monday.
There has been intense speculation the last few months over the plot and cast for Kevin Feige’s upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, with the hype seemingly out of control for the third MCU installment starring Tom Holland.
With rumors circling about the appearances of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in Spider-Man: No Way Home, many Marvel fans are wondering how much each member of the cast knows – especially with Holland’s reputation of spoiling movies in interviews.
When it comes to Doctor Stephen Strange, Benedict Cumberbatch recently revealed how stepped back he is from Marvel’s casting department, explaining his surprise at Harry Style’s appearance in Marvel’s Eternals (2021). Now, Cumberbatch is the one providing the surprises with his shenanigans at the Spider-Man: No Way Home premiere.
At the premiere for the eagerly-awaited Spider-Man: No Way Home in Los Angeles on Monday, stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jamie Foxx, Willem Dafoe, and Jon Favreau made their appearance on the red carpet, revealing no secrets along the way.
Held at the Regency Bruin Theatre, Zendaya was seen wearing an amazing spiderweb-printed dress with a lace mask, while Holland stepped out in a suave brown suit.
And Benedict Cumberbatch? Well, he just ran away with the show – literally.

To the sound of screams and whoops, Cumberbatch can be seen wildly running alongside the fans waiting at the premiere, being chased by security the whole time.
We always knew we were fans of Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch, but what a treat to see this goofy behavior from one of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
Benedict Cumberbatch has two big MCU movies coming up. In December, the eagerly-awaited Spider-Man: No Way Home, and next year, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022).
He can currently be seen in the Netflix Western drama The Power of the Dog (2021), in which Cumberbatch portrays gruff cowboy Phil Burbank, who lives near his brother George (Jesse Plemmons). The plot of the project centers around Burbank, whose relationship with his sister-in-law Rose Gordon (Kirsten Dunst) is strained.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will feature Benedict Cumberbatch in his fan-favorite role as Doctor Strange, alongside Zendaya (MJ), Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds), Marisa Tomei (May Parker), and Jon Favreau (Harold “Happy Hogan), in a Multiversal series of events. The Multiverse was first seen in the MCU in the Disney+ series Loki starring Tom Hiddleston, and most recently in What If…?.
With the appearance of characters like Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin and Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man franchises in the trailer, fans believe that Peter Parker actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will be appearing alongside Tom Holland in No Way Home.

For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Super Hero.
