Therefore, it's incredibly impressive when actors move away from one iconic role and fall straight into another. Whether it be through popular franchises, fandoms, or just brilliant performances, some actors help construct multiple iconic characters and deliver legendary performances.
British actor Benedict Cumberbatch has found himself a prominent face in two incredibly huge, but also very different fandoms during his career. From 2010 to 2017, Cumberbatch played famous detective Sherlock Holmes in BBC's Sherlock, a role which garnered him a huge fanbase of die-hard viewers.
Currently, Cumberbatch is one of the leading faces in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing as Doctor Strange in the character's origin movie, Avengers, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and most recently Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Cumberbatch is confirmed to return to the role, leading the character to become even more recognizable.
