Watch Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton and Rachel McAdams In Doctor Strange Trailer


Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War hasn’t even been released yet, and all ready they’ve begun hyping fall’s big superhero movie Doctor Strange. The trailer premiered last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and all ready people are talking about it.

If you haven’t heard of the Marvel comic book Doctor Strange, you aren’t alone. He first appeared in 1963, and has never been one of the more popular heroes. He is however one of the more interesting, and Marvel has a history of putting out good movies based on lesser known characters (Guardians of the Galaxy we’re looking at you). In the film Benedict Cumberbatch plays Stephen Strange, a doctor who ends up in a devastating car crash that injures his hands and takes his career away from him. Depressed and searching the world for a way to heal his hands, Strange meets The Ancient One (played by a bald Tilda Swinton) in the Himalayas, who trains him the mystic arts and prepares him to be Earth’s guardian and Sorcerer Supreme.

The movie stars Cumberbatch, Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen, and Chiwetel Ejiofor. The movie has been kept fairly secretive, with not much more information about the plot being released than what is in the trailer. What roles McAdams and Mikkelsen are playing have also been kept hidden.

In the trailer Swinton’s Ancient One tells Cumberbatch’s Strange “You’re a man looking at the world through a keyhole. You’ve spent your life trying to widen it. Your work saved the lives of thousands. What if I told you that reality is one of many?” To which Strange responds “I don’t believe in fairy tales about chakras or energy or the power of belief.” He changes his mind fairly quickly however, and eventually asks to be taught.

Doctor Strange is set to be released on November 4th, and will help kick off the blockbuster fall season.
