    Aidan Gillen, for the Sorcerer Supreme, without a doubt.  Cumberbatch = GALACTUS (with the purple helmet).  Honestly, with that voice and gravitas, he can eat planets and command a theater!

  4. With all the rumors as of late, I’m still waiting for the official Marvel word; but I agree and truly hope this is true. I’ve been pulling for him for a while now and absolutely agree with Jess that one episode of Sherlock is all you need to see why he’s an excellent choice. 
    *crosses fingers* Please be true
