Marvel Studios revealed a trippy new trailer for “Doctor Strange” during its Hall H presentation at Comic-Con Saturday evening.
Benedict Cumberbatch appeared in the trailer, occasionally shirtless and occasionally twirling a cape behind him in a way that marks him as very different from most other Marvel heroes: Though he doesn’t have traditional superpowers, he’s described as pure magic.
A bald Tilda Swinton also appeared in the footage as the Ancient One, who guides Strange in his exploration of his powers to bend reality.
“Doctor Strange,” which is being directed by Scott Derrickson (“Sinister”), is scheduled to hit theaters on November 4, 2016.

Seeing the mystical mumbo jumbo of "Doctor Strange" for the first time in Tuesday's trailer has been disorienting for a lot of folks. Doctor Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, is the weirdest of the Marvel heroes we've seen on screen so far. While the trailer did a good job of starting with the basics, there's a lot more that bears exploring.
So we're going to do just that, taking a look at Doctor Strange's history in the comic book source material.
