Dr. Strange Trailer
Two weeks ago Marvel Studios released the teaser trailer for Dr. Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel Universe. Benedict Cumberbatch plays the titular character, a gifted surgeon who, after a terrible car accident, seeks a mystical cure for his deformed hands. After training with The Ancient One, Strange opened a doorway to another, magical world. Dr. Strange may represent a move toward the magical side of the comic book genre which Marvel has avoided.
