A few months ago, we got our first look at Benedict Cumberbatch’s Marvel debut Doctor Strange. Now thanks to San Diego Comic-Con, we’ve got a meatier full-length trailer to watch on repeat. With less emphasis on the trippy nature of the movie’s mystic elements than the first one, this second trailer gave us a better look at the plot and tone of the film. You can ogle it below:
Apart Cumberbatch in the lead as Stephen Strange, Sorcerer Supreme, the rest of the star-studded cast includes Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Mads Mikkelsen, Rachel McAdams and Benedict Wong. Here’s the official synopsis for the movie:
Before he met the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Stephen Vincent Strange was an unlikable and egotistical neurosurgeon. Everything changes when a car accident limits Strange’s use of his hands, sending him on a maddening quest for a miracle cure. This origin story introduces the magical and mystical realms of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel also released a new poster with a new taglline – “The impossibilities are endless.”

Later today, SDCC will play host to a Sherlock panel, so expect even more juicy Cumberbatch-related goodness to appear then.
There are elements of magic that we can defy as “Stage Magic” or “Illusion”…but DOCTOR STRANGE is none of these…the poster as we can see (which is absolutely stunning and amazingly colourful), breaks every boundary of magic and Illusion to the core. This movie is going to be absolutely amazing because now I can see another side of the art that I will never see.. I have seen magicians levitate, assistant being cut in half, animals and assistants coming through the magician, escape artists, mind reading….but DOXTOR STRANGE is none of these and this is why I lovely so much…it’s time to put awayt he stage props and show the world “REALLY REAL MAGIC” as our Sorcerer Supreme does his thing. Forget David Copperfield, David Blaina and Penn and Teller, this is magic to the core! I can’t wait for this film to come out on my birthday and I hope MCU does it justice.
