“The usual boring way,” says Cumberbatch to EW. “You eat very well, you get trained by brilliant people, you work out and you do yoga, you have a physio if you injure yourself, you do stunts, you do running, you have someone editing your diet. It’s all handed to you. It’s not that hard. You just really have to apply yourself. We’re lucky. People would kill for that kind of experience. As long as you do it sensibly, it’s safe. There are good ways of doing it and there are bad ways of doing it. You can do a body-building thing where you’re destroying your body to rip new muscle or you can do it the way I did it, which is quite diligently, over a long period of time, with a healthy diet.”

Starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the title character, the upcoming superhero film also stars Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, Mads Mikkelsen as the main villain, Rachel McAdams as Michael Stuhlbarg, Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One, Scott Adkins and Amy Lamdecker.
