Dr. Strange trailer is here, and it’s exciting.
By Mumbua Nzula Nzyoka.
I watched the Dr. Strange trailer, and I have decided that November is taking too long to get here! Considering that’s what I said about the “Civil War” trailer, and I’m still waiting – 14 days and counting – I’m just going to wait. It’s not like I have a mystical power, or a time machine for that matter. Impatience, notwithstanding, here’s what I gathered about the movie from the trailer.
- Benedict Cumberbatch is Dr. Strange
I know! It was highly publicized, and we all knew he was going to be our mystical hero, but it was still great to see him in action.
- Look, it’s Racheal McAdams
What I didn’t know was that Racheal was going to be in the movie. No one is sure what role she is playing since the trailer doesn’t say, but what I do know is that she is NOT the ancient one.
- Tilda Swinton is the Ancient One
There are not many actors/actresses who have the rare ability of disappearing into the roles they are playing. Fortunately, Swinton is one of the rare ones. She appears in trailer totally bald and ready to teach Strange a few things. Clearly, she knows exactly what she’s doing with this role.
- Chiwetel Ejiofor
It’s always great to see an African actor in any movie, but a marvel movie is one for the ages. *Insert clapping hands*. Technically, I know Chiwetel was born in London, but his parents are/were Nigerian, so I will take the win where I can get it. In the trailer, it appears that our African brother shall be playing the role of Dr. Strange’s nemesis Baron Mordo.
- I’m here for the out of body experiences
I’m always up for activities that involve people being hit so hard that their astral projections are knocked out of them. I’m here for it. Teach me!
