Marvel Studios love reminding us that everything’s connected in their Cinematic Universe, and little bits like the following TV spot go a long way in proving this.
In one of many inbound TV spots for Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange, Kamar-Taj drill sergeant Wong tells the Sorcerer Supreme himself that:
“Heroes like the Avengers protect the world from physical dangers, we safeguard it from more mystical threats.”
We’re not expecting any of the Avengers to show their faces in the movie, but it’s still interesting finding out how it connects to the other movies in the franchise. What’s possibly more fascinating is the mystery of how it’ll connect to the upcoming Avengers movie, Infinity War. Our best assumption prior to watching Doctor Strange is that the Time Stone is in the Eye of Agamotto, and we all know Thanos needs to assemble these stones for the Infinity Gauntlet.
From Marvel comes Doctor Strange, the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place – a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long Strange – armed with newly acquired magical powers – is forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence. Join Strange on his dangerous, mystifying, and totally mind-bending journey.
Doctor Strange magically appears in theatres on November 4th.
