Earlier tonight, Marvel debuted the first trailer for the highly-anticipated Doctor Strange on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!. While fans continue to scour through the new Doctor Strange footage, we present a gallery of new trailer photos, breaking the sneak peek down frame by frame. Benedict Cumberbatch stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier tonight to debut the first teaser, which you can check out below if you haven't seen it yet.
Doctor Strange had been in development for quite some time, with writers Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer coming aboard to write the script way back in 2010. Six years later, with a new creative team lead by director Scott Derrickson and writer Jon Spaihts, the Sorcerer Supreme is finally ready to hit theaters this November. Many fans hope that the wait has been worth it, but we'll have to wait and see how they react to the first footage. Filming began this past November, with production first taking place in Nepal, before moving to London, Hong Kong, Kathmandu and finally New York City.
Doctor Strange tells the story of Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), an acclaimed neurosurgeon who uncovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions after a near-fatal car accident. The film will show audiences corners of the Marvel Cinematic Universe never before explored, thanks to director Scott Derrickson, who is working from a script by Jon Spaihts, based on the comic book character created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Doctor Strange is set for release on November 4, going up against Warner Bros.' Bastards and 20th Century Fox's Trolls.
The Doctor Strange supporting cast is rounded out by Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Amy Landecker, Scott Adkins and Mads Mikkelsen. Marvel still hasn't revealed which characters Amy Landecker, Scott Adkins, Mads Mikkelsen and Rachel McAdams are playing just yet, but there are rumors that Rachel McAdams is playing the Night Nurse. Tilda Swinton is playing the Ancient One, with Chiwetel Ejiofor portraying Baron Mordo and Michael Stuhlbarg playing Nicodemus West.
