During its presentation at San Diego Comic Con, Marvel Studios released a new trailer to Doctor Strange, hitting U.S. theaters on November 4, 2016.

The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One along with Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Scott Adkins, Amy Landecke, and Mads Mikkelsen.

Directed by Scott Derrickson from a script by Jon Spaihts and C. Robert Cargill, Marvel’s Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions.
Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.
Ejiofor is Baron Mordo, Doctor Strange’s archenemy, whose full name is Baron Karl Mordo. According to Marvel Wikipedia page, Mordo began his tutelage under the Ancient One as early as the 1930’s, already an adult, and residing in the Ancient One’s lair brought him reduced aging. The Ancient One realized that Mordo’s lust for power made him dangerous but chose to teach him anyway, feeling that he could at least keep a watchful eye on him. Mordo was immediately resentful of Doctor Strange when he began studying under the Ancient One and magically restrained him from speaking when Strange accidentally walked in on Mordo’s plot. The plot failed, Strange became the Ancient One’s disciple, and Mordo eventually left. Mordo continued his studies and became a fierce rival of Doctor Strange. They battled many times.

The film is produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Charles Newirth, Stephen Broussard and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.
