New Doctor Strange Featurette Focuses on Key Characters

Marvel Studios has brought online a new Doctor Strange featurette, which provides a brief look at several key characters from the film, more specifically, Mordo (played by Chiwetel Ejiofor), The Ancient One (played by Tilda Swinton) and Kaecilius (played by Mads Mikkelsen).

The latest in “Phase 3” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Strange also stars Michael Stuhlbarg (“Boardwalk Empire,” Trumbo) as Nicodemus West, Benedict Wong (“Marco Polo”) as Wong, Rachel McAdams (Southpaw) as Christine Palmer and Scott Adkins (Criminal) in an unspecified role.

Heading to theaters on November 4th, the film tells the story of a gifted but egotistical surgeon who, after suffering a career ending injury, gets a new lease on life when a sorcerer takes him under his wing and trains him to become the primary protector of earth against magical and mystical threats.

Doctor Strange is directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose) and written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus, Passengers) and C. Robert Cargill (Sinister), based on the Marvel comic character who first appeared in “Strange Tales” Issue 110 published in July 1963.
