Benedict Cumberbatch defends himself on the difference between wizards and sorcerers in a humorous Saturday Night Live ad.
The actor and Marvel star will host the popular US comedy show on May 7 along with musical guests Arcade Fire.
In a short promotional clip for the show, Cumberbatch is told by a cast member that his superhero alter-ego is “my favorite wizard.”
“Well, technically, Dr. Strange more of a wizard,” Cumberbatch corrects her.
“Harry Potter is a wizard and Dumble-dee-dore or whatever is a wizard too. dr Strange is a magician.
“Wizards have little wands and robes and cast spells, lame.”
“Oh come on, you just open portals and have a magical cloak to talk to,” the performer replies.
Cumberbatch briefly looks dejected and says, “You’re right.”
Then he adds with a smile: “But I also protect your reality. You’re welcome.”

“Burn,” says Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler, and the two high-five each other.
“Dr. Strange In the Multiverse of Madness hits UK cinemas on May 6 and stars Cumberbatch alongside Benedict Wong, Elizabeth Olsen and Rachel McAdams.
