Second DOCTOR STRANGE Trailer Debuts at SDCC 2016

It's almost time to question reality.

At yesterday's Marvel Studios' panel in Hall H at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2016, Marvel unveiled the second trailer for Doctor Strange, the Scott Derrickson film based on the Marvel Comics Master of the Mystic Arts.

The new 2-minute, 20-second trailer opens with fleeting images of Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) as a surgeon in New York, until the brutal car accident that costs him the use of his hands.

A voiceover from the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) begins "Dr. Strange, you think you know how the world works?  What if I told you the reality you know is one of many?"

We see Strange stepping backward into a shattering mirror-type special effect, as he says "This doesn't make any sense."

"Not everything does.  Not everything has to," replies the Ancient One.

Next, we see a psychedelic Marvel Studios graphic, as the Ancient One continues speaking. "Through the Mystic Arts, we harness energy and shape reality.  We travel great distances in an instant."

Doctor Strange follows the Ancient One through a portal to a hidden monastery, where he asks the Ancient One "How do I get from here to there?" as he gestures from himself to her.

"How did you become a doctor?" asks the Ancient One.

"Study and practice," replies Doctor Strange.  "Years of it."

We see Strange mastering his new abilities, followed by a conversation between Karl Mordo (Chiwtel Ejiofor) and Wong (Benedict Wong).  "There's a strength to him," admits Mordo.

"But is he ready?" asks Wong.

"Be care which path you travel down, Strange," Wong remarks as we see the film's Big Bad Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen).  "Stronger men than you have lost their way."

"I am death," Kaecilius states as we see him warping reality around him, "and pain.  We'll die protecting this world."

As the threat of Kaecilius becomes apparent, Doctor Strange tells Mordo, "I can't do this."

"There is no other way," Mordo replies.

Fleeting images of Doctor Strange using his mystical abilities follow, as the Ancient One remarks in a voiceover "I've spent so many years peering through time, looking for you."

Strange's Cloak of Levitation flows onto his body and he enters the battle against Kaecilius with Mordo at his side.

Lastly, we see a quick scene at the monastery where Mordo gives Doctor Strange a slip of paper with the word "Shamballa" written on it.  "Oh, what's this?  My mantra?" Strange asks.

"The wi-fi password," smiles Mordo as he closes the doors to Strange's room.  "We're not savages."
