Doctor Strange will be in theaters November 4, 2016, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mads Mikkelsen,  and Tilda Swinton.  Here's a first look at the trailer!


Commentary: Is it just me, or does it seem like Benedict Cumberbatch is speaking with an American accent throughout the trailer?  I was a little surprised by that, but he seems to make it work.  Personally, you can probably get away with Strange speaking with a British accent, he just seems pretentious enough that you almost expect him to have a British accent, even if he is from the United States.

The trailer does seem to have captured the spirit of Doctor Strange very well.  It looks like we are going to get a lot of mystical craziness, which is new for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  Over the years, I have never really been a huge Dr Strange fan, though I do love Jason Aaron's current run (which is also what happened with Thor). Not sure if this movie will borrow any elements from Aaron's run, but either way, I am real curious to see what this movie is all about.
