Many Marvel fans are looking to watch Marvel Studios’ upcoming blockbuster “Doctor Strange“, mainly because it looks, well, strange.
With approximately 1 month to go, Marvel Studios is rolling out more promotional material for Doctor Strange. In addition to 3 new character posters, Marvel has also released an image trailer, which gives us a glimpse of some previously unseen footage, as well as a new IMAX poster.
Since the 1-minute preview is geared towards IMAX, it’s no surprise that the the majority of the clip is filled with mind-bending visuals, collapsing buildings, and spell castings.
Although the overall trailer is mostly recycled from the earlier trailers, in which the Ancient One explains to Doctor Strange that the real world is just one possible reality of many, the additional dialogue is a treat for movie fans.
Chris Agar points out that in the clip, Wong explains to Strange the main difference between “the kinds of threats the Avengers face (which are more of a physical nature) and the mystical ones they square off against”. That hints at why the other Avengers will probably not appear in Doctor Strange’s solo adventure.
Having said that, Benedict Cumberbatch has recently confirmed that he will be making an appearance in the highly-anticipated “Avengers: Infinity War“. In speaking with Empire, the British actor hinted that he will be heading to Atlanta towards the end of the year to film his role for “Infinity War“.
“To get us all together will be quite something. That’s why this character is being introduced, to open up the next chapter… So watch this space to see how that unfolds,” he told the publication. Besides the upcoming instalment, Cumberbatch is also expected to return in “Avengers 4”.
We don’t know if they will be any Marvel cameos in “Doctor Strange”, although Tony Stark is rumoured to have a cameo in the film. Word on the street also has it that Doctor Strange will have a quick cameo in “Thor: Ragnarok” when a photo of Chris Hemsworth holding a business card with Stephen Strange’s address on it leaked online.
Fans also believe that Doctor Strange’s Eye of Agomotto is actually the Time Stone. This reveal will bring Thor and Thanos into contact with the sorcerer as they race to search for the final 2 Infinity Stones.
