Doctor Strange was an egotistical but very brilliant surgeon. After a car accident destroys his hands and hinders his ability to perform surgery, he searches the globe for a way to repair them and encounters the Ancient One. After becoming one of the old Sorcerer Supreme’s students, he becomes a practitioner of both the mystical arts as well as martial arts. Along with knowing many powerful spells, his costume has two mystical objects – the Cloak of Levitation and Eye of Agamotto that gives him added powers. Strange is aided along the way by his friend and servant to the Sorcerer Supreme, Wong, and a large assortment of mystical objects. He takes up residence in a mansion called the Sanctum Sanctorum, located in New York City. Later, Strange takes the title of Sorcerer Supreme.

Doctor Strange kind of looks like it could be the best Matrix movie since… well, you know. Marvel put out a first teaser for Doctor Strange this week, starting to introduce audiences to the newest character in its film universe. If you weren’t sure how you felt about Benedict Cumberbatch playing a doctor / sorcerer, just give this trailer a minute — somewhere between Cumberbatch writing off chakras and Tilda Swinton shoving his soul out of his body, you’ll probably be sold on it. It comes to theaters later this year, on November 4th.

Here is the trailer :
