A brilliant egomaniac with a gift experiences great tragedy, loses everything he holds dear and through that tragedy, he embarks on a crusade to find the hero within. Sound familiar? It should, because it sounds like a particular stalwart in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but I’m not talking about Tony Stark. The man in discussion happens to be a renowned neurosurgeon named Stephen Strange. Both characters sound similar and they embark on similar paths but Stark was saved through his technology, science. Strange was saved by the science that defies explanation. The mystic arts. Magic. After months of waiting, the trailer for Doctor Strange has finally arrived.
Written by Jon Spaihts and C. Robert Cargill and directed by Scott Derrickson, Doctor Strange sports the most star-studded cast a Marvel film has ever fielded outside of The Avengers. Oscar nominee Benedict Cumberbatch plays the title character and he is supported by Oscar nominees Chiwetel Ejiofor and Rachel McAdams, Oscar winner Tilda Swinton, Mads Mikkelsen, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benedict Wong, Scott Adkins and Amy Landecker. The magic and mysticism begins on November 4, 2016.
