Many know Benedict Cumberbatch for his myriad roles, including that of Doctor Strange in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The character has proven to be one of the franchise’s most dedicated heroes, despite the fact that he tends to cause a few issues here and there. However, Cumberbatch is not above heroism in his daily life. A video, which has since gone viral on Facebook and TikTok, shows the actor defending a fan, who was asking for an autograph.
The barricades didn’t seem to be enough as fans waited for Benedict Cumberbatch to exit a building in Times Square, according to the staple. Fans seemed to take turns pushing against the barriers while jostling each other. The aforementioned fan seemed to be patiently waiting for Cumberbatch to appear, as she was jostled by others around her. And when the Oscar-winning actor saw the distressed fan, he repeatedly asked the crowd to move away from her and give some space. Funny enough, the female fan didn’t even realize the MCU star was asking the crowd to fire her. And as if that weren’t enough, when people started apologizing, the sherlock the actor asked that his apology be directed to the pushed fan and not him. Here is the video of the sweet interaction of ICT Tac:

It looks like Benedict Cumberbatch is just as much of a superhero in real life as he is on screen. I understand the excitement of seeing the Marvel star, but I think we can all agree that there’s no reason to push and shove people into doing it. It’s a good thing the actor helped bring the situation under control and defend a seemingly uncomfortable fan. While Cumberbatch’s overall fanbase is enthusiastic, Marvel aficionados have proven to be quite a devoted bunch, as evidenced by the cool avengers fan art and the intricate cosplay they produce.
This isn’t actually the first time Benedict Cumberbatch has gone viral for taking care of his fans. He previously gained buzz for recording a birthday video for a fan next door Avengers: Endgame co-star Paul Rudd. Seriously, could the British actor be more pure?
Additionally, the video shows the actor walking away from fans later, and a rainbow striped bag appears. It’s a big icing on the cake moment for this heroic scene, and you can’t help but love that the star proudly displays her ally. Given his track record of kindness, I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw another moment like this from him at some point in the future.
When you’re not watching Benedict Cumberbatch help out a fan, you can see him traveling to different universes in Dr Strange and the Multiverse of Madnesswhich currently broadcasts exclusively for Disney+ subscribers. We’ll probably see even more of the hero soon, though. the Multiverse of Madness credits is an indication.
