While Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch do work together on a regular basis making new episodes of “Sherlock,” but who knows? Based on some of the news that we have now, it’s very well possible that the two actors are going to get a chance to be featured prominently in a different universe, as well.
It has been confirmed now that Freeman, who you also know from the British version of “The Office” and also “The Hobbit,” has been cast for an undisclosed role in “Captain America: Civil War,” one of the latest upcoming films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While this movie does not reportedly feature Benedict, we know already that he is set to play Doctor Strange in another upcoming Marvel movie. Therefore, it is possible that the two could find themselves interacting in another different way moving forward; we just have to find out still what the circumstances could be. A ton of it would probably depend heavily on just what Freeman’s role is.
“Captain America: Civil War” could be the feature film that reintroduces Spider-Man into this universe in some way; it has not confirmed yet who will be playing that part, but another TV actor in “Teen Wolf” star Dylan O’Brien has been rumored.
Freeman and Cumberbatch have already filmed an upcoming “Sherlock” special that will air at some point later this year. There are still some other episodes of the upcoming fourth season to film. Our feeling is that the pattern will hold: They will air first on the BBC, and then eventually transfer over to air on PBS.
