First Doctor Strange Trailer Debuts On Kimmel

The Doctor Is In: 1st ‘Doctor Strange‘ Trailer Hits The Internet

The spellbinding first trailer for 2016’s ‘Doctor Strange‘ is finally here! Premiering on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the trailer gives us a small taste at the magical & surreal world of Doctor Stephen Strange.

Directed by Scott Derrickson (‘Sinister‘), ‘Doctor Strange‘ stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange, a respected neurosurgeon who gets into a car accident that ruins his career. On a journey to heal himself, he meets The Ancient One and his life is forever changed. The Ancient One mentors Strange in mystic arts. Those powers heal Stephen and eventually send him on strange journey.

This teaser trailer featured a look at the origin of the character and just a little tease at the action to come. I was surprised that they showed Tilda Swinton in the trailer as I thought they would be saved for a bigger reveal later but the early look at their character is still enjoyable. The biggest takeaway from the trailer was how perfect Cumberbatch is as the titular doctor. The teaser showed just enough of the strange one to let us know that we will be seeing a stellar performance.

The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda SwintonChiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, and Mads Mikkelsen. Scheduled for a November 4th, 2016 release date; how will the movie play into already jam-packed Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Will you be watching ‘Doctor Strange‘ when it comes out?
