Jimmy Kimmel Hires Doctor Strange

Even though we won’t see Doctor Strange until November 4th here in the United States, the trailers have already indicated that Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) will quickly become a master of the mystical arts, despite the fact that he doesn’t really believe in all that spiritual nonsense at first. However, it appears some wires got crossed and Jimmy Kimmel thought Doctor Strange was just a magician who could entertain at a kid’s birthday party. While Strange does his best to put on a good show for the kids, he doesn’t really know how to deal with them properly.

See what happens when Jimmy Kimmel hires Doctor Strange after the jump.

First, can we all just talk about how it’s still rather odd to hear Benedict Cumberbatch speak with an American accent? The man already had one of the richest voices in cinema today, but there’s just something that sounds completely unnatural when he speaks with an American accent. That’s not me trying to say that he’s bad at it, because it’s an entirely convincing accent, but it never quite seems normal hearing it from Cumberbatch.

Anyway, I think we need more footage of superheroes from the Marvel cinematic universe interacting with kids. Between this clip and the footage of Thor teaching kids about the Avengers in Taika Waititi’s mockumentary about Thor in Australia, I think there’s a whole movie to be made about what these superheroes do on their days off.

On a side note, seeing how smarmy Doctor Strange can be in the recent clips we’ve seen from the movie, I can’t wait to see what it’s like when Tony Stark and Stephen Strange actually meet. They’re going to need five minutes to have some kind of quip-off probably.

From Marvel Studios comes “Doctor Strange,” the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place—a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long Strange—armed with newly acquired magical powers—is forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.

Doctor Strange opens in US theaters on November 4.
