Doctor Strange Trailer – Marvel Universe meets Inception

Doctor StrangeThe teaser trailer for Doctor Strange has been released and looks very interesting. When I first saw Benedict Cumberbatch in the sorcerer’s cape I thought it was going to be the standard Marvel type superhero movie. This was before I saw the trailer and I’m now very interested in seeing this movie. The concept of a doctor that has an accident and then goes on a quest that opens him open to alternate realities, this is what Marvel needs to mix things up a bit. I’m getting a bit fatigued of all of these superhero movies that have a bunch of battles that take up a major portion of the movie. While the visuals are spectacular, the storylines need to have more than just action and one-liners. There are times that I do like to see Iron Man battle it out with his enemies, but with the ever expanding Marvel Universe it can get tiresome after awhile. The trailer for Doctor Strange reminds me of a Batman Begins type of origin story mixed with the visuals of Inception.  I think the casting of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange is perfect. There are probably some Marvel die-hard fans that might differ on that opinion, but this is my first introduction to the Doctor Strange character, so I have no preconceived notions of what the character is supposed to be. I’m glad that Marvel decided to make a movie that can stand on it’s own and be a self contained storyline. Although, I’m sure that we’ll see this movie connect into the larger Marvel Universe, that would only make sense. Looking forward to the release of Doctor Strange in November 2016.
