Since he was so good in Star Trek into Darkness as a baddy, I can easily see him as a wicked Sith Lord, but don't want him to do anything too similar to Star Trek - just see the arguments and disparaging remarks about him being typecast and whatnot already. Reckon he could make a very interesting Jedi Master...

I know it's cliched but Cumberbatch as a villain in a "Star [insertt correct word]" film would be too similar to KHAAAAAN! He'd make a good Solo-ish character too, with the whole looks and charisma that win him his female following

Once you have been in a STAR TREK film you have burnt your bridges and shouldn't be allowed to contaminate the STAR WARS universe!! (That said he would be an awsome sith lord)

As far as I'm concerned, Benedict Cumberbatch can be in EVERYTHING!

Inevitably a Sith Lord. Couldn't see him as Jedi - typecasting trap.

There won't be a Thrawn. No Jacen, Jaina or Anakin Solo. No Ben Skywalker. No Darth Caedus. None of the EU characters. There can't be, think about the implications of using the EU characters for a minute, or even just their names, and you'll figure out why.

He would make a very good Sith.

BC should be in Star Wars but not as a villain - 3/9/2013 3:58:43 PM

Using some of the character traits from his Sherlock BC would make an excellent and unique good guy, kind of like Han Solo, intelligent, cocky, and arrogant but well meaning.

If he gets type cast as a villainous Sith, it would basically be Khan all over again. J.J is too intelligent to cast BC in the same sort of role twice, as he knows he is an extremely versatile actor who can play any number of different roles.

I have a few thoughts on who cumberbatch could play. first of all the military commander. the second possibility is an older brother figure to the protagonist. I'm predicting at the protagonist will be Luke's daughter. I'm also predicting that Luke will die. after that he can become the older brother figure for Luke's daughter. he could be Han and Leia is child, an older cousin to Luke's daughter. maybe Luke's daughter feels closer to him then to her own father.
