Watch the First Trailer For Marvel's Doctor Strange!

We're now in the final approach to Captain America: Civil War, that doesn't mean Marvel Studios is taking a breather. Case in point, the trailer for what Disney no doubt hopes will be the superhero factory's next big launch: Doctor Strange. Based on a Stan Lee-Steve Ditko character introduced in 1963, the Scott Derrickson-directed film stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange, an arrogant physician who loses the use of his hands and in traveling the world searching for a cure, ends up becoming Earth's mystic guardian (a.k.a the Sorcerer Supreme).

In addition to Cumberbatch, we've also got Tilda Swinton in the cast as his mystical mentor, the Ancient One, Chiwetel Ejiofor as the villainous Baron Mordo, as well as Rachel McAdams as (I presume) Strange's love interest. This is a chance for Marvel to explore some new terrain -- that of the mystic other-realms that have only been hinted at thus far -- and if history is our guide, it'll be just as much of a success as its Marvel Studios forerunners. Watch the vid below, and look for Doctor Strange to hit theaters this November:
