The first trailer for Doctor Strange, Marvel’s latest movie has been released. The titular role of Doctor Strange will be played by Benedict Cumberbatch, a talented actor who apparently can’t pronounce the word “penguins” properly na lalo lang nagpapatunay na walang perpektong tao sa mundo liban kay John Lloyd Cruz.
Para sa mga tamad gumamit ng Google, ano bang kuwento ni Dr. Stephen Strange? Doctor Strange tells the story of a talented surgeon na medyo mayabang at arogante. He gets into an accident and loses the use of his hands, destroying his medical career. Trying to find a remedy, his travels will lead him to the Himalayas where he’ll meet a sorcerer who will train him to fight evil. Since this movie will be dealing with the mystical side of the Marvel Universe, it’s interesting to see how this ties up with the other Marvel movies.
As the 14th movie to come out from the MCU, more or less kabisado na ng Marvel yung formula so this movie will more than likely be good. Add the fact that they went with Academy Award nominated actor Benedict Cumberbatch, a guy who always delivers. Marvel actually considered a lot of actors for the role like Colin Farrell, Johnny Depp, Jon Hamm, and Joaquin Phoenix just to name a few. But in the end, they went with Cumberbatch who was their first choice all along. Safe choice, but you can’t go wrong with that guy. Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor (na kailangang bigyan ng nickname kase ang hirap i-spell ng pangalan parang nadaganan lang ng siko yung keyboard) and Mads Mikkelsen round out the cast.
But why should we care about Doctor Strange? Sa mga di sumusunod sa comics baka di niyo naman kilala si Doctor Strange. Pero kung fan kayo ng Marvel movies, may rumor na pag nag retire na si Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, (51 years old na rin naman kasi si RDJ) si Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange ang papalit na bagong leader ng Avengers. So it’s very important to establish the Doctor Strange character and to come out with a movie that people will like and care about. Otherwise, we might just end up losing our interest in the Avengers franchise altogether.
Doctor Strange is set to open on November 2, 2017 in the Philippines.
