First, I think it is unfair to nail Cumberbatch down to his most popular role. He is a versatile actor.
Second, like The Dark Knight Rises and like the previous movie this will be an action movie with a mediocre story. If you expect nothing else you will probably leave the theatre satisfied. If you expect a Star Trek movie, i.e. a sci-fi movie with a decent story, you will probably be disappointed.
