Movies should not be made like this.
This is why I don’t blame Cumberbatch himself for taking the role: by all accounts, at the time he signed the contract, he didn’t know his character’s real identity.
(Actually I try not to blame actors in general for taking parts, unless they’re in a position where they can pick and choose their roles, Johnny Depp. People gotta pay the rent, after all. I save my side eye for when they’re actively stupid, like Jackson Rathbone saying all he needed to play Sokka was a tan.)
I really hope that in a few years we get the full story of what the hell was going on behind the scenes of this movie
