#Cumberwatch: Benedict Cumberbatch Rules Himself Out of Episode VII

By: Dominic Jones

It's time for Cumberwatch!  The most persistent Star Wars Episode VII rumor was brought up again this weekend when  Benedict Cumberbatch spoke at the Oz Comic Con.  Naturally the prospect of the Sherlock star appearing in Episode VII during his Q&A.  Sadly his answer isn't quite what we were hoping for.  Cumberbatch told the audience, "I would've liked a part in JJ's new Star Wars but it won't happen, sadly."

His response is pretty much par for the course when it comes the Cumberbatch/Star Wars rumors.  That being said, every time we thought we ruled out Cumberbatch, it was met with a new rumor stating that he is in the film (I put the over/under at two weeks for the Cumberbatch next rumor).  But the biggest piece of evidence suggesting that he really is out of the running is that he is slated to appear in another film which films at the same time as Episode VII.

As always, if you choose to share this story on any of the various social media sites, be sure to use the hashtag #Cumberwatch.
