Marvel Studios released the first full-length trailer for Doctor Strange and also unveiled an updated version of the film’s official logo.
We’re only four months away from Doctor Strange, so it’s only normal that more footage would be revealed at this time. What better event to release a comic book film’s first full-length trailer than Comic-Con 2016?
The new trailer for Doctor Strange delves a little deeper into Stephen Strange’s motivation for becoming the Sorcerer Supreme. Echoing some of the slight arrogance seen in the original Iron Man (2008) that starred Tony Stark, we see that Strange’s own personal arc may be something akin to the Golden Avenger’s.
Another thing to note about the trailer is the revelation of Karl Mordo as more of a mentor than an antagonist. It’s very likely that their relationship will sour towards the end of the film.
Along with the new trailer, Marvel Studios also shared a new updated logo for Doctor Strange—one that also sports Marvel Studios’ own updated branding.
