Things are about to get very STRANGE in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Early this morning we were treated to our first look at Marvel’s Doctor Strange, and boy does it look awesome!
On first look, we don’t get much more than a summary of Stephen Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) origin and transformation into the Sorcerer Supreme. Gifted surgeon. Car crash. Hands broken. Trip to parts unknown before the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) shows up and punches Strange’s spirit out of his body. Yes. Really.
This trailer just proves to us further that Marvel are pushing the boundaries of their usual superhero formula. Just like Ant-Man was as much heist comedy as it was superhero flick, Doctor Strange looks to be steeped in supernatural fantasy and thus keeping things very loyal to the comic book theme. We’re very excited.
Doctor Strange hits Irish & UK cinemas in October!
