Marvel unveils ‘Doctor Strange’ teaser trailer, Benedict Cumberbatch revealed

The brand new teaser trailer for Marvel’s Doctor Strange just debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, introduced by star Benedict Cumberbatch. The teaser trailer is now available below.

Fans get a look at the Stephen Strange backstory, meeting the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) and a brief glimpse Chiwetel Ejiofor as the villain Baron Mordo.

Doctor Strange movie banner“I guess I have always been a big fan of Marvel films and I was just excited by the way they have been sort of pushing the envelope. I guess when I watched Guardians of The Galaxy I was like, ‘This is really exceptional, what is happening here,’ Ejiofor said about joining a superhero flick.

The footage is more like Inception fused with magic than anything Marvel fans have seen at this point.

Marvel Exec Kevin Feige offered up official details with Entertainment Weekly, particularly about Strange’s powers.

“He does cast spells, which in the comics have very sort of tongue-twisty fun names. We don’t want to shy away from that, because that’s what makes Doctor Strange Doctor Strange. He has a Cloak of Levitation that allows him to fly, but he doesn’t fly like Superman or like Thor. It’s almost got a consciousness of its own, this cloak, which, again, gives us a superhero with a red cape — which we’ve seen a few times — but allows us to do it in a wholly unique and wholly original way. He can create these mandalas of light that he can use as shields and he can use as sort of weapons. He can create portalas that will open before your eyes that he can step through and go to other places around the world. And frankly, even in this film, we’ll only touch upon what a lot of his powers are.”

Doctor Strange stars Cumberbatch, Swinton, Ejiofor with BD Wong, Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen, Amy Landecker, Michael Stuhlbarg and Scott Adkins in the new film.

Doctor Strange is filming now for a November 4, 2016 release date.
