San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) gave an awesome final blow when they surprised Marvel fans with another fantastic trailer for ‘Doctor Strange’ on Saturday.

Marvel Studio’s panel in Hall H revealed a brand new preview of the said movie, its second one before its scheduled release this year.

“OH, MY GOD,” were Benedict Cumberbatch’s words when he tried to introduce the new preview. The actor who plays Doctor Strange in the new Marvel movie was part of the studio’s Hall H panel on Saturday evening.  “I’ve got the Strange shake again”, he jokingly added.

Before this year’s SDCC, director Scott Derrickson gave us a sneak peek of the film and although we can observe that some of the footage showed in this new trailer has already appeared in the first one, it has revealed more details to for fans to get excited about.

The preview showed Baron Mordo, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor, and his speaking appearance as well as the evil Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen) and of course, the jaw-dropping magic by the The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton).

This new release established the identity of Doctor Stephen Vincent Strange before he met the Sorcerer Supreme. As a normal, not-yet-magical human being, he was an unlikable doctor specializing in neurosurgery. However, a car accident disabled him to use his hands which resulted to his impossible quest to find a miracle cure.

The character, Doctor Strange first appeared in the #110 issue, Strange Tales in an American comic book published by Marvel Comics in 1963. He was created by the artist/conceptualist Steve Dirko.

It was in 2012 when Doctor Strange ranked 83rd in Wizard’s “200 Greatest Comic Book Characters of All Time” and got the 33rd spot in IGN’s list of “Top 50 Avengers”.

‘Doctor Strange’, the newest Marvel movie is set for a November 4 international release in theaters this year.
