Is Benedict Cumberbatch Playing the Villain in BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN?

In a recent interview with  BBC reporter Chi Chi Izundu, Benedict Cumberbatch was asked if he was the villain in Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. He didn't deny it. If this guy is in Batman Vs. Superman, then he should be giving some kind of geek saint hood. I think, before every screenwriter begins their screenplay they stare at a poster of Benedict Cumberbatch and wonder how they could write a part for him. I think he may be a time traveler, or a warlock. UPDATE: Benedict Cumberbatch gets role of Time Travelling warlock. Well played Cumberbatch...well played.     Benedict Cumberbatch says he's not going to put to bed rumours he's the baddie in #BatmanvSuperman @BBCNewsbeat — Chi Chi Izundu (@blondeafro) September 2, 2014
