Marvel has released the worldwide trailer debut for Doctor Strange, and — I gotta say — I have never been so excited for comic movie in quite a while.
Written by Jon Spaihts and directed by Scott Derrickson, Doctor Strange is an origin film about a world-class neurosurgeon who, after being forced to abandon his career as a result of crippling his hands in a car accident, becomes the Sorcerer Supreme tasked with protecting the Earth against magical and mystical threats in the Marvel universe.
In the trailer, we get a closer look at British actor Benedict Cumberbatch in his role as Dr. Stephen Strange, said Sorcerer Supreme, as well as his dark, twisted and downright weird world. Other notable characters are the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton), Strange’s mentor, and her student Karl Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor).
Now, watch and be amazed…
With its focus on magic and extra-dimensional entities, Doctor Strange will definitely set a new tone for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will be tied is some way to Avengers: Infinity War. Strange is one of the most powerful beings in Marvel comics, so expected him to be a big player in the impending battle against Thanos.
The movie releases on November 4, 2016.
