“There is a strength to him. But is he ready?”
I dunno about Hugo Strange, but I sure am ready. The official trailer for Marvel’s Doctor Strange hit San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, and it’s all sortsa badass.
First, there’s a more in-depth discussion of exactly what type of power Strange is training for/harnessing, by the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton). Then there’s more of a look at Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Baron Mordo, who seems like a good guy in this trailer…but who’s to say, right comic book readers? And then there’s Mads Mikkelsen’s Kaecilius, complete with supercool eeeee-vil eye makeup FX.
But I’m really curious about Rachel McAdams here, who IMDb says will be playing Christine Palmer. Though this trailer makes her seem as though she’s a love interest, fans know Christine Palmer as Night Nurse, the badass medical professional who helps heal up a host of superheroes. Folks who have seen Netflix’s Daredevil know her as Rosario Dawson, even though her name is slightly different. I’m wondering if that’ll change in some way now that the MCU is having a go at the Nurse, though with Dawson’s character being the tie-in for all of the Netflix Marvel Universe shows, I can’t see that happening. Looks like it’ll be similar to the Flash being different actors on TV than in film…
