doctor strange trailer breakdown

Captain America: Civil War will probably be pretty great, but if I could only see one Marvel superhero movie this year, it would be Doctor Strange. Part of this is because I have an affinity for the character, who is one of my favorite comic book heroes of all time. However, it’s also hard to say no to a superhero movie that takes a hard left turn into the realm of the mystical and the magical, which sounds like a refreshing change of pace. And that’s before you even talk about the cast that director Scott Derrickson has assembled, which includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda SwintonChiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Benedict Wong.

The first teaser trailer for Doctor Strange arrived late last night, so you know what that means – a frame-by-frame breakdown of the new footage.

Doctor Strange Trailer

Over half a century after he was first introduced in the pages of Strange Tales #110Doctor Strange is finally conjuring up his first live-action big-screen feature this fall. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the surgeon-turned-sorcerer, while director Scott Derrickson works his magic behind the camera. And although Doctor Strange will be the 14th film in the overarching Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’ll be the first to dive deep into the psychedelic, mystical outer reaches of that universe.

Which is a roundabout way of saying it’s been tough to guess exactly what Doctor Strange might look like — but now we no longer have to. Marvel Studios dropped the very first Doctor Strange trailer on Jimmy Kimmel Live! tonight, and you can feast your eyes on it after the jump.

Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange

Even as fans and critics rave about Captain America: Civil War and all the new characters it brings, Disney is getting ready to introduce its next new hero into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the superhero of the same name, an arrogant surgeon who, while attempting to heal himself after a devastating car accident, stumbled into the discovery of magic.

Directed by Scott Derrickson, the movie promises to venture into the more mystical corners of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And much to fans’ relief, the set photos have strongly suggested that the film won’t back down from the weirder aspects of the character and his many bizarre adventures. The very first Doctor Strange trailer is due to arrive tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live, but to tide us over in the meantime, Marvel has just dropped the very first Doctor Strange poster. Check it out below.  Read More »

Doctor Strange Trailer

This week has brought some goodies from Marvel’s fall release of Doctor Strange with Benedict Cumberbatch stopping by a comic book shop in full wardrobe after production on the movie wrapped. Plus, a new official photo just arrived online today as well. But next week is when we’re really going to get a taste of the Sorcerer Supreme.

Jimmy Kimmel Live will be taken over by Marvel Studios next week with the stars of Captain America: Civil War stopping by throughout the week. But there’s one day when fans will really want to pay attention, because that’s when Benedict Cumberbatch will be stopping by to unveil the first Doctor Strange trailer. Read More »

sherlock season 4

Benedict Cumberbatch may have just wrapped production on Marvel’s Doctor Strange a few days ago, but he’s already started shooting Sherlock season 4. Call it keeping your nose to the grindstone. Call it having a supernatural ability to work with the bare minimum amount of sleep. In either case, Mr. Cumberbatch must have the same mutant gene as Dwayne Johnson. You know, the one that allows him to work tirelessly without crashing his car into a ditch or walking into closed doors.

Anyway, the real news here is not that Cumberbatch is secretly one of those kids from Beggars in Spain, but that production has officially begun on more episodes of Sherlock, which is good news for people who like nice things.

I won’t even try to hide my excitement for Marvel Studios’ upcoming Doctor Strange, which looks to take the Marvel Cinematic Universe down a refreshingly, uh, strange left turn. Dr. Stephen Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme, Marvel’s master of mysticism, is one of my all-time favorite comic book characters and that fact that he’s getting a movie makes me giddy. Stupidly giddy.

The character’s cinematic look was initially unveiled on the cover of Entertainment Weekly, but we got a fresh look a few days ago when the film’s production moved to New York City and star Benedict Cumberbatch stopped by a comic book store in full costume. Now a new, official Doctor Strange photo has arrived, offering us another look what a retired surgeon turned master magician looks like.
