That may seem like a long way off, but realistically, it's probably only two seasons of Sherlock away! LOLz!

Stephen Davies, Director of Live Events at BBC Worldwide, explains the surprise move:

Every year The Guardian compiles a list of the 100 most powerful people in the U.K. media.

Topping the list are obvious choices like Google's Larry Page, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, and Apple's Tim Cook.

But hitting number 10, far and away the highest spot for a woman this year, is our girl Taylor Swift!

Gurl has proved her influence over the music industry with her fight against Spotify "bringing the issue of artist remuneration into the spotlight."

Just saying Benedict Cumberbatch's name aloud can soothe a crying a baby into a deep slumber.

This is why we can imagine many comic book fans were put at ease when they heard that Benedict would be playing Dr. Strange in Marvel's upcoming eponymous film.

Benedict can add this role to his impressive array of SciFi and Fantasy characters: so far he's played a Dragon, a Necromancer, and a genetically engineered superhuman.

His portrayal of Doctor Stephen Strange will hopefully be the next AH-Mazing performance in a long and incredible career.

In addition, Ryan Reynolds is set to reprise his role as Deadpool in the upcoming Deadpool movie. He's reportedly close to closing a deal.

Ryan had played the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, so we're super happy that he'll playing him again.

Congrats to Ryan and Benedict!
