According to Comic Book Movie on Tuesday, in an interview with Benedict Cumberbatch at the GQ Awards, the actor did not deny any role he would have in Zack Snyder's "Batman v. Superman." Last week though, an online comic book movie source had listed speculative names linked to "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Justice League" movies. Cumberbatch was noted as the most speculated choice for the DC Cinematic Universe.
It's not surprising that Cumberbatch would indeed be desired by geek fans, after all he voiced Smaug the dragon in "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" and portrayed Khan Noonien Singh in "Star Trek: Into Darkness." Though they were villains, it's only a wonder in other people's thoughts and rumors if Cumberbatch were to be either.
Cumberbatch was also thought to have an alien way about his acting abilities. His role as Khan does form an air of mystery about him as he was rather genetically enhanced and thought himself to be rather superior to humans like Captain James T. Kirk. The source indicated that he has an "other worldly" way about him in his role as Sherlock Holmes and in conclusion is thought to be vocally intriguing.
Also a BBC reporter by the name of BBC Entertainment asked Cumberbatch about all the speculation surrounding his involvement in the DC Cinematic Universe. The actor's response was neither confirmed nor denial. The actor was also rumored to be attached to Marvel's Doctor Strange character as well, but the celebrity has garnered his attention with other projects and as of yet to have shown any commitment to a sizable franchise.

Recently, Warner Brothers has registered four domain names linked to the DC Cinematic Universe as well just to give an idea of where the studios is headed.
