There’s a new Doctor Strange trailer which shows us a lot more of Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen). Be prepared to find him a lot more charming than our hero.
There are two very good moments in this new footage: The first puts Strange in context with the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Wong (Benedict Wong) saying, “The Avengers protect the world from physical dangers. We safeguard it against more mystical threats.”
And the second is Kaecilius and Strange interacting. With Kaecilius calling him “Mister” and then “Mister Doctor.” Eventually Doctor Strange manages to get out, “It’s Strange.”
And then Kaecilius hits him with “Maybe, who am I to judge?” It’s so good and Mikkelsen’s delivery is masterful. There’s never been more evidence that this movie might actually be as fun and weird as it should be.
