YOUR BUTTS. HOLD ON TO THEM.
Thanks to their continued, massive profitability, the films of the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe get to keep digging deeper and deeper into the Marvel canon for character fodder.
And arguably one of the stories that’s been in line for a film adaptation the longest is finally about to hit screens.
The hugely popular Doctor Strange is gearing up for its very own standalone film to hit screens, and the debut trailer for the hyper-mystical film has been gifted unto us all today.
The internet’s favourite affably upper-crust Brit Bendandtwerk Pumpyoursnatch is thurst into the titular role of Doctor/Stephen Strange, a former egotistical neuroscientist in search of meaning after a car accident ends his career. Enter, a goddamned spectacular and very, very bald Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One, a mystic who mentors Strange in the art of magic and multiple realities.
The film also stars Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Stulberg, and Mads Mikkelson.
There’s no point reading any more. Just hit play and enjoy the glorious footage for yourselves.
Sweet baby ray it’s like if Inception were a dang Marvel film.
Deliver Us From Evil director Scott Derrickson shot the film, off a script penned by Jon Spaiths (Prometheus) and C. Robert Cargill (Sinister).
You’ll be able to wrap your eyes around it when it hits cinemas on November 4th.
