First DOCTOR STRANGE Trailer Teases the Sorcerer Supreme
Forget everything that you think you know.
Late last night on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, actor Benedict Cumberbatch stopped by to debut the first teaser trailer to Scott Derrickson's Doctor Strange, giving us our firs good look at Marvel Comics' Sorcerer Supreme.
The two-minute trailer opens with footage of Dr. Stephen Strange's car accident that causes severe nerve damage to his surgeon hands, as we hear the voice of Baron Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor). "Stephen Strange," begins Mordo. "Might I offer you some advice? Forget everything that you think you know."
Next, we see Strange traveling the world in search of a treatment for his condition, as we hear the voice of the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) talking to him. "You’re a man looking at the world through a keyhole," remarks the Ancient One as we glimpse Rachel McAdams as an unidentified ER nurse when Strange is wheeled in for an emergency operation. "You’ve spent your life trying to widen it. Your work saved the lives of thousands. What if I told you that reality is one of many?"
"I don't believe in fairy tales about chakras or energy or the power of belief," Strange tells her.
"You wonder what I see in your future? Possibility." All at once, the Ancient One shoves her palm into Strange's chest, knocking his Astral Self right out of his body as Strange stares at his noncorporeal form in amazement.
We see Mads Mikkelsen's unnamed character bending reality by waving his hands around in a clockwise gesture as we hear Strange ask the Ancient One "Why are you doing this?"
"There are other ways to save lives," replies the Ancient One as she shows Strange several New York Cities folded upon themselves, Inception-style. "So much you don’t know."
After Strange is brought back to standard reality, he begs her, "Teach me."
Lastly, we see the shadowy outline of Doctor Strange, now garbed in his traditional costume, walking up a staircase inside the Sanctum Sanctorum.

Doctor Strange is scheduled to arrive in theaters on November 4, 2016.
