Today’s Marvel row positively dominated Hall H. It was only installed with a goods, including initial looks during Spider-Man: Homecoming (you can scope my outline here) and Guardians of a Galaxy Vol. 2, and a new Doctor Strange trailer. But a genuine provide from Scott Derrickson’s conduct outing into a area of inter-dimensional mysticism came in a form of an uncut, prolonged method from a Benedict Cumberbatch-led superhero adaptation.

To benefaction a footage, Cumberbatch and Derrickson were assimilated on theatre by expel members Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton, Benedict Wong, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Mads Mikkelsen, who teased how their roles have been blending from a comics. For one thing, Mordo isn’t a loyal adult rival, nonetheless a coach to Stephen Strange as he undergoes his singular tour to apropos a magician supreme. And as for Mikkelsen’s villain, he positively doesn’t see himself as one, nonetheless rather as a loyal follower in a teachings of a Ancient One who’s on a goal to figure a star in his picture of what’s many beautiful. While it was good to hear from a cast, it was a fully-edited stage that stole a show…well, that and a extensive lightshow that preceded it.

In a pierce that portends a trippy, mind-bending inlet of a film’s material, Marvel kicked off their Doctor Strange display by opening a screens opposite Hall H, and promulgation billows of fume down into a assembly — fume that was afterwards used as a delegate projection shade on that streams of light, symbols, and imagery were projected, eventually artwork out a Doctor Strange symbol. It was a grand introduction that brought a residence to a station ovation. Marvel certain knows how to put on a show.


Now, to that footage. We open on an beyond shot that scans a city in Tibet where Stephen Strange is desperately acid for The Ancient One’s church in hopes of recovering his recently ravaged hands. He asks and asks, pestering people on a street, nonetheless no one has a answer. Suddenly he spies a male in a hooded cloak, Mordo, who turns around to offer Strange this advice: “Forget all we consider we know.” They conduct to “the refuge of a Ancient One.” “Does he have a genuine name?” Strange says with his signature snark before editing himself (with some-more snark), “Right, forget all we consider we know, sorry.”

Inside a sanctuary, dual of The Ancient One’s disciples immediately mislay his coat, one brisks past and hands him a cup, as he heads to a wizened aged male meditating nearby, a balding lady comes and pours tea in his cup. He addressed a aged male as a ancient one, nonetheless it’s a lady pouring his tea who answers. “Mr. Strange,” she greets him. “Doctor, actually,” he replies with another sip of that snark. “Well, no not anymore,” she replies. “Isn’t that because you’re here?”

As she serves his tea, he inquires about rumors that she healed a male with a severed spine. He asks how she corrected such a disgusting injury. She insists she didn’t. “He couldn’t walk; we assured him that he could.” He thinks she’s detected mobile regeneration, she corrects him. “I know how to reorient a suggestion to improved reanimate a body.” He’s skeptical. She shows him a map of a chakras. Now, he’s irritated. “I’ve seen that before…in present shops.” She shows him a map of acupuncture, and another of an MRI scan. “Each of those was done by somebody who can see a part, nonetheless not a whole.”


Now, he’s angry. “We are matter and zero more,” he says vehemently, his fury flourishing as he looses wish in being healed. “You consider too small of yourself,” she tells him quietly and he comes during her, yelling, “I see by you!” He touches her and in that impulse she soul-punches his planetary physique out of his earthy form.

Ever a skeptic, he accuses her of drugging her tea. Mordo looks on, a slight demeanour of entertainment on his face. She assures him it’s zero nonetheless tea…well, tea and a small honey. “Open your eyes. Have a good trip, Mr. Strange.” She touches him and sends him drifting by space and dimensions. He’s out in space and a moth floats by. Then he’s disintegrating, exploding into angled pieces. He’s reconfiguring in streams of light; wavering, solid, shining — a colors elaborating opposite tone pallets — now neon, now dim and warm-toned. He travels opposite beams of light and energy, existence changeable around him until he lands on his knees behind during her feet. Hands shaking, he looks adult during her and implores, “Teach me.”

We see them roving by space again, jumping by portals. A city is being reconfigured arrange of Inception style. Suddenly they’re on a solidified towering top. Back in a sanctuary, she asks him how he became such a learned surgeon. “Study and practice,” says and she responds with a meaningful nod.


We cut to a inside of an ancient, immeasurable library where we accommodate a reenvisioned Wong, who Benedict Wong was discerning to explain is no longer a tea-fetching manservant, nonetheless a master of a cryptic humanities and cavalcade sergeant of sorts. Wong introduces himself. “Just Wong?” Strange quips. “Like Adele? Or…Aristotle? Bono? Eminem?” Wong is not amused. “I am a defender of these books,” he tells him. “If one volume from this collection should be stolen, you’d be passed before we left a compound.” He’s lethal serious. Strange, of course, is not. “What if you’re only overdue? Any late fees we should know about?” Wong stays unamused. “People used to consider we was funny,” he says. “Did that work for you?” Wong replies.

It’s a plain extended shave that introduces many of a pivotal players — nonetheless we still haven’t scrupulously met Mikkelsen’s knave — and shows off a film’s reality-bending nature. For now, Marvel has nonetheless to recover a shave online, nonetheless for a time being, we can check out a Doctor Strange Comic-Con trailer here.
