Tonight, Benedict Cumberbatch debuted the much awaited Doctor Strange trailer on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
The preview does not disappoint. Since 2008 we've been surrounded by the likes of Iron Man, Captain America and Thor. While these heroes sour to new and super human heights and may even not be of this world, Marvel is taking into a new a very "ungrounded" direction into astral plain: the world of magic.
The first look shows that the Marvel magic is unlike other outings into the magical realm. Never mind "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them"; we're diving into a darker, reality shifting area of cinema. Imagine if "Harry Potter" was directed by Christopher Nolan; for such a "magical tale" it is grounded in reality or as far Marvel Cinematic Universe will allow.
The film, directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose) follows brilliant and celebrated surgeon Stephen Strange as he struggles with losing his talents in a automobile accident. Seeking answers from around the world as in taken in by the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) where he is trained to defend the other from evil forces.
