First Teaser Trailer for ‘Doctor Strange’ Is All Kinds of Trippy Awesomeness
The brand new teaser trailer for Marvel’sDoctor Strangedebuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live!on Tuesday, and gave us a taste of how star Benedict Cumberbatch becomes the titular character.
He plays Dr. Stephen Strange, a once brilliant and arrogant surgeon whose life is nearly ruined but gets a second chance when he meets a sorcerer named the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton), who takes him under his wing and trains him to defend the world against evil.
Cumberbatch told Entertainment Weekly last December about casting spells as Doctor Strange, “I’m still in the infancy of learning all that. It was like, okay, I’ve got to keep throwing these poses, these spells, these rune-casting things, everything he does physically. I’m thinking, there’s going to be a huge amount of speculation and intrigue over the positioning of that finger as opposed to it being there, or there. And I’m still working on that. We haven’t played any of those scenes yet. I felt really self-conscious. But, then, by the end, it was great. It’s like anything, you just have to experiment.”
