I’ve been very vocal about my hatred for Benedict Cumberbatch.
Now I don’t want to get too far into our colourful history, but he worked with my frenemy Keira Knightley – multiple times – and took my role in 12 Years a Slave, but the final blow to our potential friendship was when he lent his name to a superior blog with superior recipes, a matter of weeks before our launch.
I mean, that Eggs Benedict Cumberbatch recipe is on point and My Name is Yeh is a beautiful blog that makes this little patch of cyberspace look even more amateurish … but how could he treat us with such disrespect?!
A vicious war was raged on our end and I vowed to end Benedict, rather unsuccessfully.
Then he was cast in a Marvel movie.
So yeah, things are very awkward between us but as a key player in Marvel Studios, I’ve decided to reach out to
Benedick Cumberbitch Benedict, make amends and finally score myself a starring role in the MCU – maybe as a love interest for Star Lord, for instance. Obviously Deadpool would be ideal, but damn 20th Century Fox own the rights.
With that in mind, what says I half-heartedly want to make amends for the drama I’ve caused and to increase my standing with Marvel?
