If this trailer is anything to go by, Marvel is meeting Inception with Doctor Strange, and Benedict Cumberbatch is going to have a slightly odd American accent. It does look pretty cool – if strange – though.
Cumberbatch plays Stephen Vincent Strange, a former neurosurgeon who becomes the next Sorcerer Supreme and primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats. Tilda Swinton will play Strange’s mentor, the Ancient One, while Chiwetel Ejiofor will appear as Baron Mordo, who also studies magic under the Ancient One, before becoming Doctor Strange’s nemesis. Mads Mikelsen is also onboard to play one of the main villains, as you will see in the trailer, while Rachel McAdams is Christine Palmer.
Scott Derrickson is directing the movie. It’ll be in cinemas November 2016.
