Doctor Strange looks about as close to a Christopher Nolan film as we'll ever see in the Marvel universe, and to me, that's a great thing. The visuals in this Doctor Strange trailer are utterly stunning, taking cues from Batman Begins, Inception and Interstellar while crafting a sun-baked look and feel of its own. If I have one complaint for Marvel's recent run, it's that too many of their films look too similar. That doesn't appear to be the case with this one. The action looks mind-blowing, the cast is stellar (Cumberbatch and Ejifor fighting baddies together? Count me in), and most of all, the tone hits the mark. It's a decidedly more epic and grandiose feel than, say, Guardians of the Galaxy, but there's enough of a glimpse of the trademark Marvel humor to keep things from going into grimdark Snyder territory. Overall, Doctor Strange looks like another home run for Marvel and a great debut film for Benedict Cumberbatch in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Doctor Strange is directed by Scott Derrickson, stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benjamin Bratt, Scott Adkins, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Mads Mikkelsen, and will hit theaters on November 4.
