Marvel week continues on Jimmy Kimmel Live as promotion for Captain America: Civil War continues and now we are treated to the very first teaser trailer for Doctor Strange starring Benedict Cumberbatch!

“Forget everything you know” as you step into the world of Stephen Strange, the most famous neurosurgeon who has recently lost his talent due to a career ending injury now in search for a cure.

Director Kevin Feigne delves more into Dr. Stephen Strange in an interview with EW:“He can do a whole host of things, eventually. He does cast spells, which in the comics have very sort of tongue-twisty fun names. We don’t want to shy away from that, because that’s what makes Doctor Strange Doctor Strange. He has a Cloak of Levitation that allows him to fly, but he doesn’t fly like Superman or like Thor. It’s almost got a consciousness of its own, this cloak, which, again, gives us a superhero with a red cape — which we’ve seen a few times — but allows us to do it in a wholly unique and wholly original way. He can create these mandalas of light that he can use as shields and he can use as sort of weapons. He can create portals that will open before your eyes that he can step through and go to other places around the world. And frankly, even in this film, we’ll only touch upon what a lot of his powers are.”

The teaser gives us a taste of what’s to come as we see him react to the devastating loss of not only his ability to use his hands for surgery but also his fame. Cumberbatch embodies Dr. Strange as we follow him on his trip for a cure and stumbles upon something greater, something that can help him do so much more than he ever could before. The film also stars Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Mads Mikkelsen, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Tilda Swinton.

Take a look at the teaser below along with the first two posters while we wait for the theatrical release of Doctor Strange on November 4, 2016.
