It seems our favorite Sherlock (yes, even over Robert Downey, Jr.) has been very busy these past few months. Not only has the new season of Sherlock come and gone on the BBC (although we’re still waiting for it here in the U.S.), but Cumberbatch has been rumored to have been cast as the Master in Doctor Who and is also currently portraying the villain on the set of the new Star Trek film.
I’m not going to focus on the Doctor Who rumors, as we know that many of these are just made up (although the rumor about Neil Gaiman penning an episode eventually came true). But a couple of new photos from the set of the new Star Trek film show Cumberbatch going at it with Spock. It looks like the Vulcan is kicking his butt with the death grip. Ouch!
Star Trek 2 is currently in production and set to hit theaters in May, 2013.
