I love that at first she thinks it’s misogynistic, and isn’t afraid to call him on it, but then we see him do what we almost never see a male superhero do : He admits he’s scared.
He’s not trying to belittle her, he’s not trying to tell her or even the kids that they’re not strong,
He’s trying to protect what he loves most because he’s terrified of losing them. The big, giant robot ripping apart BUILDINGS doesn’t scare him at all compared to losing what he loves.
I love this movie for so many reasons, but this scene is one of the bigger ones. A hero movie where the males are allowed to be emotional without appearing weak? A hero movie where females are allowed to be strong without being callous or woefully 2D? A hero movie where children are allowed to explore their potential instead of being shitty sidekicks?
Yes, this Ice Bucket Challenge thing is weird and already totally played out, but you know what? It’s also for a great cause. And seeing people get ice water dumped on their heads is almost always funny. But leave it to Benedict Cumberbatch, who seems to be a magical creature from another dimension meant to bring unlimited joy to this Earth, to basically shut down the entire shtick with one hilarious YouTube video.
The video starts off as a standard Ice Bucket Challenge video, with the added flourish of it being in slow motion when he actually gets soaked. (And, by the way, we really appreciate that there is actually ICE in the ice water. Some of these videos just look like “really cold water,” which doesn’t do it for us.) But then things go on longer and longer and it’s really pretty hilarious. "Good sport" doesn’t quite cut it when describing Benedict Cumberbatch; homeboy is positively saintly.

#Just a reminder that someone died in this room one minute later #Just a reminder that Lydia probably felt it as a Banshee #She probably thought it was going to be her #So when Brunski walked towards Stiles with that needle #Lydia refused to believe her Banshee feeling was about him #That Stiles will actually die #Because she couldn’t see anyone else dies #Especially not Stiles Stilinski #Just a reminder
