Never one to pass up an opportunity for cross-promotion, Marvel Studios is using the home video release of Captain America: Civil War to plug some of its other upcoming titles.
When news broke that Marvel hired Community and Rick and Morty's own Dan Harmon to write new scenes for "additional photography" on Doctor Strange, no one was too surprised.
Slight, grain of salt-sized chance of a Doctor Strange spoiler below.
So take a look at the clip below, and start to get excited for Doctor Strange. In this special feature, we get a few brief notes on the involvement of Karl Mordo (Chiwetel Ejifor), The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton), and the villains led by Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen). And as if that weren't intriguing enough, the video also includes some dazzling concept art. Now, there's word that Harmon may have accidentally dropped the true villain of the film. Hopefully when the marketing kicks into high gear they'll focus on why odd is a character we should care about beyond his magic powers. They're "people who become seduced by what they see on the other side." Hmm. He also explains that Mikkelsens' Kaecilius is interested in spilling the barriers between dimensions. So far, there has been no reference to Dormammu, but if this document is true, as fans on the Reddit post seem to claim, then it could show us an aspect of the movie that we haven't seen yet, or possibly reveal where the film's plot will head. The actor reiterates that point here. "If the majority is looking for the truth here, he's looking over there for the truth", he adds.
Directed by Scott Derrickson, "Doctor Strange" stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the titular surgeon-turned-sorcerer who discovers the world of magic and alternate dimensions following a devastating auto accident. It arrives in theaters November 4.
