Who is Doctor Strange?
He is a superhero in Marvel’s comic universe who was a former doctor but turns into the primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats. The first teaser of the upcoming movie of Doctor Strange came out some hours back and it showed us a glimpse of the power with which we will be enveloped when the movie releases this November.
Please watch the trailer first:
To throw some light on this superhero’s background Doctor Strange was a human who was gifted with the skills of being an extremely talented surgeon. But the qualities of egotism and arrogance made him care only about money instead of his patients. A freak car accident renders his hands useless which makes him search nooks and corners of the Earth to settle his deformity.
His search makes him meet the only one who can save him and that is the Ancient One/Old Sorcerer Supreme played by Tilda Swinton.
The trailer sheds light more on his accident, his search and the beginning of his mystic education from the Ancient One. Here we have all the powers which will be played by Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange.
He is a practitioner of both the mystical arts as well as martial arts, thus a lot of magic and action is highly predicted
His costume is made of two mystical objects which are the Cloak of Levitation (power to fly) and the Eye of Agamotto (whose light negates evil magic) which give him added powers
Ancient One’s friend; Wong and a large assortment of mystical objects act as his aids. Wong will be played by actor Benedict Wong
He practices White magic from the Book of the Vishanti and fights against the spells of the Dark Hold which is the practice of black magic, thus a fight between white and black magic will be the crux of the movie
The orb of agamotto which is a crystal ball is used by Strange for clairvoyance; he uses the crystal to detect magic in use anywhere in the world with a location and a visual
Doctor Strange is proficient in using numerous magically conjured weapons including swords and axes. His practice as a surgeon makes him perfect for these arts
To sum up Doctor Strange is called the mightiest magician in the cosmos. He becomes the Sorcerer Supreme after the Ancient One’s death (oh sorry for spoiling Swinton’s death for you) But who knows how much will this film show us, surely Marvel will plan to make sequels on this superhero in the near future.
Hope the movie succeeds in awing us when it hits the theaters as the trailer totally succeeded in doing that.
