Comic-Con: In the New Dr. Strange Trailer, All The World Is a Rube Goldberg Machine

“Through the mystic arts we harness energy and shape reality.” That’s how Tilda Swinton’s character The Ancient One describes her abilities in Marvel’s forthcoming movie, Dr. Strange, which just got a fresh trailer out of San Diego Comic-Con. This new clip shows us Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Baron Karl Mordo and gives us a better look at both The Ancient One and Kaecilius, the villain played by Danish villain-actor Mads Mikkelsen. Strange will kick off Marvel’s “weird” phase in earnest, which will take viewers to different realms and different planes of existence more frequently. With the exception of Guardians of the Galaxy, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has stayed mostly terrestrial and mostly in the same dimension up to this point, but after Dr. Strange we will go back to Asgard for Thor: Ragnorak and into the Cosmos with Guardians 2. So get ready for extra helpings of magic and mysticism in the MCU, and let Benedict Cumberbatch’s Dr. Stephen Strange light your way in the dark.
