Want to know something wonderful? "Sherlock" star Benedict Cumberbatch and Marvel villain Tom Hiddleston are friends. They've apparently been good friends since 2010, when they met shooting "War Horse."

Hiddleston brought up the friendship while doing press for his upcoming film, Guillermo del Toro's "Crimson Peak." Cumberbatch had originally planned to play a role but had to be replaced in August 2013 by his friend.

"He's one of my best friends. It's as simple as that," Hiddleston told The Star when asked about Cumberbatch.

So let's celebrate the lovely friendship between two lovelier men with photos and GIFs of Ben and Tom together.

"War Horse" brought the two actors together.
