Doctor Strange actor Benedict Cumberbatch recently revealed that he did not read the entire script for Spider-Man: No Way Home and why.

Early on in the development of Spider-Man: No Way Home, it was revealed that Benedict Cumberbatch was set to start in the film alongside Tom Holland. The character’s exact role in the film wasn’t revealed until the first trailer was released. Exactly what will happen in the film and who will be in it has been the subject of speculation and several supposed leaks. But none of these have come from the Doctor Strange actor himself.

In a recent interview with USA Today, Benedict Cumberbatch revealed that he had not read the entire script for Spider-Man: No Way Home. The reason was that he didn’t want to give anything away and wanted to enjoy the ride:

“You know it’s a dead end, but I can tell you this: It’s a riotous film. I don’t want to give anything away – and I haven’t actually read the whole script! I did that on purpose because I just want the ride.”

Here is the synopsis for Spider-Man: No Way Home:

For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero is umasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Super Hero. When he asks for help from Doctor Strange the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.

Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Marvel’s latest stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, J.B. Smoove, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Benedict Wong, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Alfred Molina.

Spider-Man: No Way Home will hit theaters on December 17, 2021. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the film and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
