(Hey guys, I'm back! I've been so busy working on Wendigo Comics and we are doing some crazy new stuff! Go like the page: , and get in on the action!)

Now its not hard at all to see that Olde Cumberbatch is easily snatching up some pretty iconic roles in already iconic universes, but after Khan and Smaug, what could be next in his conquest to become the most visible actor in all of Nerdom? Could there really be a role for him in EVERY universe?

The simple answer? Yes, and that's why I'm here today.

I have compiled a list of characters perfect for him to portray on the big, and little screen, so let the fantasying begin (get your mind out of the gutter).

The MCU: Namor the Sub-Mariner!

Now, I know a lot of people have been glamouring for someone like The Rock, or some other beefcake to be Namor, and they may have the physique to pull it off, but Cumberbatch has the gravitas and swagger to pull off the Atlantian ruler. He may have to have a very hard work out to fill out the muscles, but he is truly the best suited to carry what would be quite a gamble for the MCU.

DCU: Brainiac!

Brainiac is again, a very serious and powerful presence that really needs a great actor to portray him so he can be taken seriously. It would involve alot of makeup or CGI, but with Benedict's voice and presence, it could easily spell out a vary believable foe for a future Justice League or Man of Steel film.

D&D: Drizzt Do'Urden

Now, there's (probably) no plan for a Dungeons and Dragons movie in the near future, but i mean, how cool would it be to see Cumberbatch using Twinkle and Icingdeath to hack his way out of the underdark? Yeah, it sounds as awesome as rolling a 20 ;)

Star Wars: Any Sith Lord

I say "any" because I have no clue which, or if they could invent one to fit for him. Since no one really knows what direction they're going with the new films (both the trilogy and the standalones) for all I know, he could show up as the first sith, a Mandalore Bobba Fette, or anyone in between. Really, I just want to see him in Star Wars, and there was a rumor that he could be involved so any predictions of who he could play, comment them, or like my page and message me (nudge nudge wink wink)

Hannibal: A very creative, very British Cannibal or Possibly the Tooth Fairy Killer.

I'm not going to lie, I am a Fannibal. But I think he could really spread his acting wings on this show. the only question is, what would draw him to appear on a TV show? The answer? Well, there's the actors, all of which are crazy talented and notable (Eddie Izzard guest stared on a couple episodes!), there's the fact that every actor likes to take at least one psychopath in their career and of course the tooth fairy is a very rich character that could make a character actor salivate, especially with the writers on the show. If you take all of this, you put it together, and he takes it I would almost guarantee an academy award!
