The Sherlock star plays a villain in Star Trek Into Darkness

Benedict Cumberbatch is a very hot baddie in new movie Star Trek Into Darkness.

His twisted character threatens Starfleet from
within and wreaks terror and destruction on
planet Earth in some very tight outfits.

‘The costumes look great,’ says Benedict, 36. ‘Some of them were very cumbersome and heavy, but some were very snug. You can almost see what religion I am.’

As a teenager, the actor admits he wasn’t a dedicated Trekkie.

‘When I was growing up, I saw Buck Rogers as well as Star Trek on telly,’ Benedict tells The Sun, ‘and then film wise I guess it was Star Wars, really.

‘But, I think, I never obsessed with anything, I just sort of bought the T-shirt.’

Star Trek Into Darkness is out on 17 May.
