Benedict Cumberbatch is Thomas Edison in The Current War Trailer
 

Quote:

Starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Thomas Edison and Michael Shannon as George Westinghouse, THE CURRENT WAR is the epic story of the cutthroat competition between the greatest inventors of the industrial age over whose electrical system would power the new century. Backed by J.P. Morgan, Edison dazzles the world by lighting Manhattan. But Westinghouse, aided by Nikola Tesla, has seen fatal flaws in Edisonís direct current design. Igniting a war of currents, Westinghouse and Tesla bet everything on risky and dangerous alternating current.

Never going to beat David Bowie's performance as Tesla in The Prestige. And isn't Edison generally regarded as the villain in this story and Tesla's AC acknowledged as a better solution?

Edison and Westinghouse would both be the villains, really. Edison was essentially a thief and Westinghouse is the reason why Tesla died destitute.
