Benedict Cumberbatch has embarked on a year most stars can only dream about. The Oscar-nominated actor will appear in four films in 2021.

Cumberbatch, who earned raves for his performance in Dominic Cooke's The Courier earlier this year, was the man of the hour at the Telluride Film Festival, where two of his movies made their North American debuts: The Electrical Life of Louis Wain from Will Sharpe and The Power of the Dog from Jane Campion.

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch attends the screening of Marvel Studios' "Doctor Strange" after party at Bar SixtyFive on November 1, 2016 in New York City.

Later this year, he returns to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for Jon Watts' Spider-Man: No Way Home opposite Tom Holland, before his standalone sequel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, launches in March 2022.

On a bonus edition of the Variety Awards Circuit Podcast, Cumberbatch talks about his films, what they mean in his already impressive resume and how the family man keeps his priorities in check.

Cumberbatch is generating Oscar buzz for his performance as a repressed cowboy in Academy Award-winner Campion's Power of the Dog, which could bring him his second Oscar nomination for best actor. The pic drew praise for him and his co-stars at the Telluride and Venice festivals this past weekend.

He even spills a little bit of tea about Spider-Man: No Way Home and responds to Holland's comments on a previous episode of the Awards Circuit Podcast, where he said, "I think this is the most ambitious standalone superhero film ever made."

Naturally, Cumberbatch has a swift response, "until 'Doctor Strange 2' comes out," throwing down the gauntlet for the next phase of Marvel.
