Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange’ Trailer Is Here

Marvel Entertainment is firing on all cylinders! Just as they’re unleashing Captain America: Civil War on the masses at tonight’s world premiere, they’ve unveiled the first trailer for the second Phase 3 film, Doctor Strange.

Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Doctor Strange tells the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, attempts to heal himself and makes an incredible discovery that will change his life, and the world, forever.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has seen its share of oddities — mythological gods, extraterrestrials, super-powered Inhumans, and much more — but Doctor Strange is significant because it’s the movie that introduces the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.

The mystical elements of Doctor Strange come into play as Cumberbatch’s character travels to Tibet to be trained by the Ancient One, played by Tilda Swinton.

Just how far down the mystical rabbit hole will the film take us? Could we, for instance, see the door opened for alternate reality versions of current MCU characters? The trailer doesn’t answer those questions, but we do get a proper tease of Strange’s origin, and some very trippy visuals.

Watchful fans will have seen numerous Doctor Strange set pics of Cumberbatch sporting his costume, so it’s a bit of a bummer that we don’t get the full character reveal here — we see just a quick glimpse of Strange, in Sorcerer Supreme garb, as he walks up the dimly-lit stairway of what comic fans will recognize as his Sanctum Sanctorum.

Comic devotees will also know that the window he’s walking toward is of great importance. It’s called the Window of Worlds, and is decorated with the Seal of the Vishanti, which protects the Sanctum from evil. Find out more about that, and everything else there is to know about Doctor Strange, on Marvel Database.

More mysteries will surely be revealed as we head towards Doctor Strange‘s November 4 release date. Lastly, here’s another look at Cumber-Strange attempting to wreck your mind in the brand new teaser poster from Marvel:
