Watch Marvel's Benedict Cumberbatch Take on a Huge Cliff in Running Wild with Bear Grylls: The Challenge Clip



Running Wild With Bear Grylls: The Challenge returns with an all-new episode this Sunday, featuring the participation of none other than the Sorcerer Supreme himself, actor Benedict Cumberbatch. In the latest episode of Season 2, titled "Benedict Cumberbatch on The Isle of Skye," the Marvel star takes a break from his Doctor Strange duties and embarks on an exhilarating outdoor adventure in the scenic landscapes of Scotland. The full episode will premiere on National Geographic this Sunday at 8 PM CST. However, we have an exclusive clip right here, where Cumberbatch shares his perspective on the stuntwork in a Marvel film compared to the surreal experience with Grylls.


In the clip, Cumberbatch and Grylls begin their descent down a cliff. Positioned at the top, Cumberbatch holds the rope while Grylls expertly descends. This unique experience proves to be quite different for Cumberbatch, who remarks, "I've only done a little bit of this before, and I've always been able to see the other person. It's not the same as doing a stunt on a Marvel film. It feels a lot more real."








As Grylls begins his descent, he remarks, "It's quite a long way. It's definitely going to be a nerve-wracking experience for Benedict." The camera cuts back to Cumberbatch at the top of the cliff, showing the significant amount of rope Grylls is using and the impressive distance he continues to descend. Cumberbatch observes, "That's a lot of rope, and it just keeps going. How far down does this go?" You can watch the complete clip in the video provided above.


Running Wild with Bear Grylls: The Challenge follows Grylls as he teams up with celebrity guests, guiding them through essential survival skills while tackling unique outdoor challenges. Season 2 kicked off with Grylls taking Bradley Cooper into the canyons of Wyoming. Now, Grylls is joining forces with Cumberbatch in the upcoming episode, and viewers can eagerly anticipate who his next adventure companion will be.
