While the Avengers and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D were watching the world premiere of Captain America: Civil War (#TeamCap, BTW!), Marvel dropped the first trailer of Doctor Strange.
Twitter went wild for this one.
Alright, so who is Doctor Strange?
He’s Dr. Stephen Vincent Strange, a gifted (but big ol’ jerk) surgeon. When his hands are damaged beyond repair in an accident, he searches for a way to repair them. This quest ultimately results in his learning the ways of magic from a powerful sorcerer, the Ancient One. Dr. Strange is trained to use his powers for good and defend the world against evil.
Oh, and Benedict Cumberbatch plays him, so you know, that’s NIIIICE.?
While this character may not be familiar to many who are new to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I think you’ll be hearing a lot more about him as we build toward the movie.
In fact, Avengers/Super Heroes weekend runners, you’ve already been tipped off that this movie is bound to be huge by runDisney.
The Dr. Strange 10K will run just a week after the opening of the movie. ?Makes for a handy tie-in, doesn’t it?
Spoiler alert: my guess (GUESS, mind you- I have no insider knowledge!) is that the 10K medal will look a lot like the Eye of Agamotto.
Go ahead and Google it.
Slap a sweet lanyard on that baby and this newly nerdy runner is all in. ?I think it’s kind of cool!
Here’s the trippy first trailer of the movie.
Are you intrigued? I know I can’t wait to see more!
