Marvel Studios released an extended sneak peak featurette of their upcoming film Doctor Strange. In the sneak peak, we are provided with more insight into the character and, ultimately, what draws him to embrace the path that he’s introduced to in the film.
Doctor Strange, as we discover, has a overbearing need to control his life and his destiny. He’s at the peak of his career when he, as luck would have it, gets into a car crash that damages his hands forever. This sends him into a downward spiral where he tries to fund every operation and procedure possible to try to fix his hands and, overall, his life. However, nothing works. This is when he makes a last ditch effort to go to Tibet.
This is where he meets Baron Mordo, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor, and is introduced to this whole different world. Once introduced, he is opened up to new ways in which he can enrich his life and take control of his destiny.
Without spoiling the whole featurette, I highly recommend you all watch it below. Some things are answered while others are left up in the air until the movie is released. Oh, and the visuals are mind blowing.
The general synopsis of the film can be found below:
Marvel’s Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.
Marvel’s Doctor Strange will premiere in theaters Friday, November 4, 2016.
