New ‘Doctor Strange’ Featurette Introduces Key Characters

Captain America: Civil War is now available for digital download, meaning all those great special features have been set free. Among deleted scenes, and a hilarious blooper reel Marvel treated fans with a behind the scenes look at its next movie, Doctor Strange.

The featurette introduces key characters such as Karl Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor), the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) and the mysterious villain Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen).

The short clip offers a lot of new information about Mikkelsen’s villainous character. “We’re excited about the villains in this film,” producer Kevin Feige says. “We call them the Zealots. These are people who become seduced by what they find on the other side.”

Doctor Strange is set to introduce a whole new corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’ve seen hints at magic in previous movies, but the Sorcerer Supreme will bring inter-dimensional travel, teleportation and a whole lot of danger that we’ve never seen before.

Marvel’s Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.


Doctor Strange, directed by Scott Derrickson, opens in theatres on November 4 in the US and an earlier date of October 28 in the UK.
