Benedict Cumberbatch leads the first trailer for Marvel's Doctor Strange

04.13.2016

Doctor Strange banner

After his career is destroyed, a brilliant but arrogant surgeon gets a new lease on life when a sorcerer takes him under his wing and trains him to defend the world against evil. Thus enters another classic character into the MCU, as Benedict Cumberbatch portrays DOCTOR STRANGE in this very first trailer!

"Teach me."

A few choice screencaps:

While GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY took the MCU into outer space, DOCTOR STRANGE will introduce audiences to the supernatural side of things. I think audiences are willing to open their minds to something a little more "out there" than the likes of Iron and Ant men, if you will. If anything, Benedict Cumberbatch could make the phone book sound interesting for 2 hours, so I'm sure he'll have no problem pulling off DOCTOR STRANGE!

DOCTOR STRANGE hits theaters on November 4, 2016.

I'm sure it will be good, but...

this trailer left me a little cold. As I said, I'm sure it will be good, but this didn't get me as excited as I thought it would. I was expecting more magic stuff, and less Inception-style tricks.

I would say that besides Guardians of the Galaxy 2, this is the Marvel project I'm most interested in. Looks pretty damn good so far!

Oh, I'm so sorry. Forgive me. I'll try and be a tad more quiet as I desperately struggle to break free -- and save all creation!

Always enjoyed the good doctor, never thought his character could pull off a feature length film that others unaffiliated would want to see...until that trailer. Awesomesauce! Definitely an Inception meets Matrix vibe and that is cool with me.

Loved it!

It was crazy, beautiful, and best of all didn't give away any of the movie's plot. This film definitely needs to tease just enough to get people into the theaters. I don't want to see any of the awesomeness of the magic or the villain spoiled on my computer screen. I want to see it all for the first time on the big screen. This movie is going to be special.

Actually we got a pretty good look at the villain, not that it told us much. I get what you're saying.

Looks like Inception had a baby with the Matrix. I'm in. I want to see more of the main character though. He is hardly in this, I feel like people will think Tilda Swintons character is Dr. Strange lol

Looks cool, but the thing I don't understand as far as the MCU is concerned, was that I thought Marvel was eschewing the supernatural elements when they re-imagined the Mandarin in Iron Man 3.

Does the Manderin and Dr. Strange have any connection? It would seem like they would.

No, the Mandarin was re-imagined as a red herring, not because they wanted to get rid of all supernatural stuff. Dr. Strange is deeply into the supernatural and has no connection with the Mandarin.

But aren't Dr. Strange and the Mandarin both sorcerers? It seems strange to me that they wouldn't cross paths if they're involved in the same craft.

The rings that the Mandarin uses are actually alien tech rather than the magic that Dr Strange uses. They could technically re-introduce the Mandarin as someone different, but it's doubtful. Anything can happen in the MCU though!

I don't know anything about Doctor Strange, but from this trailer I am def. sold. It's a lot different than what I was expecting. It has a Inception feel to it.

I swear if they'd shown a fat freckled kid with red hair for even a second, people would be Batman meets Inception, meets The Sandlot.

Disney's/Marvel's handling of lack of representation comes in the form of white British women

I'm still not over the fact they have Tilda playing a Tibetan monk when she could have easily played Death, the Enchantress, or someone else. The trailer didn't really excite me because it looks too familiar to what's come before it with Inception like special effects.

I've never been a Dr. Strange fan. Never read one of his books, I always got the feeling that he worked best as sort of a mentor or source of knowledge to the heroes and would only come in to help when shit really hit the fan. But this trailer makes the movie look like it will be a good adventure/story for the character. And it's great to see something different from Marvel, I wonder if this will be the new direction Marvel goes with for Phase 4.

Looks decent - seems to convey a decent sense of epic scale too. It's true though, the first time he speaks he does sound exactly like House. I'm expecting some more out-there effects in the movie than the Inception-esque stuff shown in this trailer, but yeah it does a good job of building excitement about a character that most people won't have read many comics about. Promising first look.

Maybe they did a study on how viewers respond to accents and the 'House' accent has now become the goto accent?

Couldn't they do the decent thing and make Cumberbatch wear a surgeon's mask at all times? His face is repellent even with the comedy beard hiding some of it.

you made a similar lame joke when the poster for "Dr. Strange" came out. Even though he's married, I don't think he has a shortage of woman wanting to see his face in movies. You on the other hand....

Looks awesome. Batman Begins meets Inception certainly seems like the best way to describe the trailer, in a good way indeed. I liked the visual aspect of the changing of reality better in the shot of Mads Mikkelsen, in comparison to the wide shot of New York. And the shot at the end was epic.

Given what the average person knows of Marvel movies...this was just right amount of, "What's this then? Looks interesting". I liked it...quite a bit actually and that last scene wouldn't be a bad way to end the movie..

I'm wondering if the events in this movie take place around Iron Man, implying that He's always been there, in the background...was just mastering his skills.

Out of all the Marvel stuff I have seen, I feel that Captain America, Daredevil, and Spiderman have been the most appealing to me. This has made me feel that there will be another one on my list. I love "The world is not what you know" type films. Matrix, Inception, or Harry Potter type stuff.

I've been anticipating this film ever since the name Stephen Strange was mentioned in Winter Soldier. I think the film looks great and the trippy atmosphere instantly reminds me of Inception. This was a good teaser trailer, but I'm hoping for more action next time around; preferably displaying the use and control of his potential powers. Absolutely loved the shot of his soul and/or spirit leaving his body after the hit and him being able to acknowledge the out of body feeling.

But this

But this definitely has me excited for some new blood entering the MCU like Guardians did for Phase Two. Can't wait to see Cumberbatch do his thing as Doctor Strange, while also looking forward to him meeting the rest of the established Avengers. Love the tone the trailer sets of how powerful and dominant he can be with his black magic and supernatural abilities.

I see that noted creative-fraud Scott Derrickson has also seen Inception, the ending to Interstellar, and Batman Begins.

Fuck, does that guy EVER bring anything to the table?

The visuals are bringing me back to Inception. If it wasn't for the opening crawl I wouldn't even know this is a Marvel movie.

Looks exciting overall.

I never thought with where the beginning of Iron Man would get us to this point and at first I wasn't too sure on BC playing Strange, but damned if I'm not pumped to see this just as much as I was Deadpool, am for Suicide Squad, and then for this...wow!

If that was Benedict narrating in an american accent, I didn't like it. Kinda threw me off. He sounds like Hugh Laurie from House.
