We’re just over a month from the theatrical adaptation of the comic book character of Doctor Strange in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and I’m definitely feeling hyped. Marvel has now cut a new minute long teaser spot for it that’s designed to raise awareness of the upcoming IMAX teaser that will be included with showings on October 10th, 2016. There’s plenty of familiar footage in the spot but we get some expansion on the placement of the film and context with The Avengers while also sliding in another little dose of humor.
Directed by Scott Derrickson, it will star Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mads Mikkelsen, Benedict Wong and Tilda Swinton. It’s set to debut on November 4th, 2016.
Plot concept: The film will follow the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.
