The Marvelverse continues to rocket along on the big screen at a furious pace. Captain America Civil War is in cinemas in a few short weeks and there are plans for the next five years already in the works. And they're still adding new folks to the mix, with the character of Stephen Strange set to get his own movie in November.
Doctor Strange sounds like the very epitome of a comic book character, a name that's designed to be in an eye catching font to grab the attention of kids wandering past a newspaper rack. He first appeared in Strange Tales in 1963 and is described as the Sorcerer Supreme of Earth.
That's right, this one deals with magic and it's going to be a bit of a new departure for Marvel, ad you can tell in the first teaser trailer with Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role.
That's about as different as you can get from the movies we've seen so far, which makes us wonder how Strange will ever fit into a teamup like the Avengers movies. That's a problem for down the road in Infinity War but the idea of magic isn't so far from some of the powers we've seen in these movies, particularly the effects of Scarlet Witch.
The basic story revolves arounds surgeon Stephen Strange who is injured in a car accident and, through a series of events, discovers a world beneath ours which is full of magic and mystery. We're thinking it could be a mix of The Matrix and Inception, with a bald Tilda Swinton instead of Larry Fishburne.
Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Micheal Stuhlbarg and Mads Mikkelsen also star in the film, which is directed by Scott Derrickson, the man behind Sinster and The Day the Earth Stood Still. It's set for release in November 2016.
