New Doctor Strange sneak peek video offers more details

Who exactly is the Ancient One again?

The exclusive bonus features that will come with the Captain America: Civil War Blu-ray have already begun to trickle out, but the latest offers a sneak peek at some of the most important characters in Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange.

In the video, which can be seen above, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Mads Mikkelsen’s characters can all be seen with a little more depth than Marvel has ever shown. The video also features commentary from the actors about their roles and being a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

While there is quite a bit of info about specific characters, including a pretty decent look at Swinton’s Ancient One, there are a couple of characters that don’t make an appearance in the video. Rachel McAdams’ character, for example, does not make an appearance but we do know that she’ll play a fellow doctor that Dr. Stephen Strange needs in his life to keep him grounded in humanity while becoming the sorcerer that fans know him as.

Doctor Strange tells the story of a gifted neurosurgeon, Dr. Stephen Strange, who suffers major traumatic damage to his hands following a terrible car accident. In his quest to recover fully and return to his career, he travels to East Asia where he’s introduced to the Ancient One (Swinton) who helps him become the great sorcerer that he’s known as today.

There are some details about the main character released in the video, but for the most part, it focuses on the rest of the cast. Doctor Strange, directed by Scott Derrickson, hits theaters Nov. 4.
