Over the weekend was I stalking, errrr, I mean following, the news that came out of the San Diego Comic-Con. I feel like I should apologize in advance for all the Comic-Con related news I’m going to post on my blog. But honestly, I’m not sorry because it’s all such amazing news and tidbits!! One of my favorite parts was the appearance of the cast from various Marvel films, including DOCTOR STRANGE. Today I’m sharing with you the new poster and trailer for the film!
Let me give you a quick run down on DOCTOR STRANGE… Stephen Strange is a doctor, whose career is ended when he’s in a horrific car accident. He goes on a “healing journey” where he finds himself teaching English in India. It is there he encounters the Ancient One. This mysterious figure then mentors Stephen in the craft of mystic arts, where he then becomes the Sorcerer Supreme!
This standalone film will mark Stephen Strange’s first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the exception of when he is briefly mentioned as a threat to HYDRA in CAPTAIN AMERICA: WINTER SOLIDER. If you are a Disney XD, you also probably recognize Doctor Strange from his appearance in Marvel’s Avengers: Ultron Revolution, where the Avengers helped him battle Dormammu. But enough of the chatter… let’s geek out over the brand new trailer!!
