Earlier this month I gave you a look at the set of Marvel’s DOCTOR STRANGE, as principal photography just wrapped in New York City. Last night, Benedict Cumberbatch, who portrays the title character, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, presenting audiences with the official teaser trailer for the film. Of course, if you missed it, I have it here today just for you!
Now for those unfamiliar with the latest character to enter to the Marvel Cinematic Universe… Stephen Strange is a former doctor, who then serves as Sorcerer Supreme, the primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats. Now at this time, I’m not sure on the EXACT plot of the film. Though I do know that we will be treated to his origin story. Strange is in a horrific car accident that ends his career as a surgeon.
He then goes on a “healing journey” where he finds himself teaching English in India. It is there he encounters the Ancient One (played by Tilda Swinton), who mentors him in the craft of mystic arts. Take a look for yourself…
