The first teaser trailer for Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” film last week was the briefest of teases, mostly showing off some of the physics-defying craziness of the film. The result was promising but familiar, a film that looked like a kind of “The Matrix” and “Inception” hybrid.
Speaking with The Sunday Service podcast (via MCU Exchange) this week, the film’s co-writer C. Robert Cargill says that trailer barely scratched the surface of the film and just how mad it gets:
“This teaser is, it’s the definition of a teaser. You are only getting a like a small taste of just how crazy this movie gets. We have only just the slightest hints of magic in there. There are major characters you don’t even glimpse in that trailer, there is so much stuff going on, that this thing is just nutty, the stuff they let us do, I can’t believe they let us do it. Like, just, … [Marvel Studios head] Kevin Feige and other producers like Stephen Broussard would be ‘How can we make it crazier?’ and I was like ‘Aw right, let’s play around.’ It’s just a hell of an experience.”
It’s expected we’ll see a lot more of “Doctor Strange” around the time of either Comic Con in July or more likely D23 in August. Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton, Benedict Wong and Michael Stuhlbarg star in the film which opens November 4th.
