The Sorcerer Supreme Battles Kaecilius And His Zealots In New Doctor Strange Clip


Early word on Doctor Strange has so far been overwhelmingly positive, and while we still have some time to wait before seeing the movie, this new clip definitely points to it being something special. As you can see above, it puts the spotlight on the Sorcerer Supreme going to war with the villainous Kaecilius and his Zealots.

We still don’t know an awful lot about that group beyond the fact that they worship a mysterious dark force from another realm, something many fans believe will be revealed as Dormammu. Regardless, this clip is yet another great example of the trippy visuals we can expect from Doctor Strange, as we see the various characters featured here running up the walls, distorting reality and casting all sorts of spells. Stephen seems to be struggling a little though, something which can likely be blamed on his inexperience as a sorcerer.

For those of you wondering where this fight takes place, Kaecilius has invaded the hero’s Sanctum Sanctorum. In the comic books, that’s Doctor Strange’s home and even served as a base for The Avengers for a time. With the character now confirmed to appear in Avengers: Infinity War, it will be interesting to see if the same thing happens in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Doctor Strange follows the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions. Set for release on November 4th, the cast includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwitel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton.
