Just weeks away from Captain America: Civil War, Marvel is already rolling out promotion for its next installment, coming this November.
Dr. Stephen Strange himself, Benedict Cumberbatch, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to help debut the teaser for Doctor Strange…and it was awesome.
Joining Cumberbatch as the title character are Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave, The Martian) as Baron Mordo, Michael Stuhlbarg (Steve Jobs, Trumbo) as Nicodemus West, and Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton, Snowpiercer) as The Ancient One. Also starring in the film are Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal, Casino Royale), Rachel McAdams (Spotlight, Mean Girls), and Scott Adkins (Zero Dark Thirty, The Bourne Ultimatum). Directing is Scott Derrickson (The Day the Earth Stood Still, Sinister).
Doctor Strange hits theaters November 4th, 2016.
The first extended footage of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story debuted Thursday morning, teasing the tale of how the rebel alliance acquired the plans to the original Death Star from Episode IV. Jyn Erso, played by Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything, The Amazing Spider-Man 2), is recruited to lead a band of rebels steal that information. As you may know already, it’s not the easiest task…
The film takes place just before the events of A New Hope and one could assume there will be ties to the current canon of the trilogy, perhaps insight into Rey’s lineage. Rogue One is directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla, Monsters). Joining Jones in the cast are Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal, Casino Royale), Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Dodgeball), Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline, The Dark Knight Rises) and Diego Luna (Elysium, Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights).
There’s much speculation that the origin story version of Han Solo could also make an appearance, but that hasn’t been confirmed. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be in theaters December 16th, 2016.
