“Forget everything that you know, “
Things are about to get Strange in the Marvel Cinematic Universe! This Tuesday, we got our first look at Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme in Doctor Strange. The film is being directed by Scott Derrickson and will also star Mads Mikkelson, Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Check out the trailer below!
“There’s more than one way of saving lives,”
Though this is only a teaser, we do get an extended look at Stephan Strange’s origins as well as a brief teaser of the mystical man himself ascending the stairs to the Sanctum Sanctorum. For those readers unfamiliar with the Sanctum Sanctorum, it is the home of Stephan Strange and also a powerful place in and of itself, over the years acting as headquarters for the defenders and the New Avengers.
Noticeably missing from the trailer is the performing of any actual magic. You do get a great shot of Tilda Swinton knocking Strange out of his body but apart from that we see very little ‘Scarlet Witch’ style mystics. So far Wanda Maximoff has been our only real guide as the the look and feel of the magical side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hopefully the explanation is that the CGI is simply not completed yet and we’ll get a much more action packed magical trailer later on in the year.
Marvel’s Doctor Strange will release November 4th this year. What did you think of the trailer? What do you most want to see out of a Doctor Strange movie? Let us know in the comments below!
