Jimmy Kimmel will play host to a lot of superheroes next week in honor of “Captain America: Civil War,” which will include the exclusive debut of the first trailer for “Doctor Strange.”
The Marvel extravaganza continues on Apr. 12 with “Doctor Strange” star Benedict Cumberbatch, who will exclusively debut the upcoming film’s trailer, as well as Clark Gregg from ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
This will be followed by a second “Captain America: Civil War” cast appearance on Apr. 13 as Kimmel welcomes “Team Iron Man”: Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Emily Van Camp, Chadwick Boseman and Paul Bettany. The week concludes on Apr. 14 with star of “Thor” and “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” Chris Hemsworth.
Cumberbatch is set to star as Dr. Stephen Strange alongside Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo. Strange is a brilliant but egotistical surgeon who travels the world to restore his skills after a car accident leaves him unable to operate.
In his travels, he meets the Ancient One, who teaches Strange the ways of magic in order to protect the Earth from a host of mystical foes.
“Doctor Strange,” which is being directed by Scott Derrickson (“Sinister”), is scheduled to hit theaters on Nov. 4.
“Jimmy Kimmel Live” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m./10:35c on ABC.
