Needless to say, a number of Earth's Mightiest Heroes have some pretty hefty regrets following the events of Avengers: Infinity War, which saw the Mad Titan Thanos succeed in wiping out half of all life in the universe. However, for Doctor Strange actor Benedict Cumberbatch, his biggest regret has nothing to do with the actions of his character but rather his own.
"This is my biggest regret of that whole time is that I didn’t sneak in to see people’s reaction," the actor said in an interview with UPROXX. "And I wish I had. I really do. I really wish I’d done that. And I think it was such a long press tour, by the time my family got me home I was well and truly on holiday and with them. Or was I working? Geez, I can’t even remember anymore. I think I had a tiny break and then I was riding into doing a TV drama about Brexit. But yeah, it’s my biggest regret of that whole experience. And there aren’t that many regrets, because it was a wild ride. I mean, just selling that movie by not being able to say anything. But the places we got to go – and it was very cool. I know other people who did it. I think Tom Holland did it. I know Mark Ruffalo took his children, because he then FaceTimed us from the cinema."
Nevertheless, while Cumberbatch's big regret is understandable from the actor's perspective, it still pales in comparison to Peter Quill/Star-Lord's actions in the film itself.
