After a few movies in a key supporting part or as part of a larger ensemble, Doctor Strange is finally getting another solo outing.
Doctor Strange has been a busy man recently; he played a major part in the recent 'Spider-Man' movie, popped up in 'What If', and saved the universe from Thanos.
The doctor hasn't starred in his own movie since his initial 2016 outing, but 'In The Multiverse In The Madness' looks to be worth the wait.
Sam Raimi, the man who helped usher in the current superhero era of dominance, is behind the camera and the new trailer has plenty of Raimi's trademark flourishes.
There's kinetic, dynamic camerawork, an off-kilter tone, and the key ingredient in any Sam Raimi movie, Doctor Strange faces off against an evil version of himself.
The film is Raimi's first film since 2013's 'Oz: The Great And Powerful' and the director said he was a fan of 'Spider-Man: No Way Home'.
Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch is Strange's co-star in the film, with Wanda in recovery mode after the events of 'Wandavison'.
Cumberbatch, who is Oscar-tipped for his performance in 'The Power Of The Dog', looks like he's relishing the chance to play an evil doppelganger of Doctor Strange, while Olsen is playing a version of Scarlet Witch reeling from the events of 'Wandavision'.
Pairing up two characters who like to mess around with reality and time is a great sandbox for a film to play in, and the film looks to take full advantage of their powers.
The trailer teases an appearance from a surprise character, but we're mindful of people wanting to go in cold who don't want the film spoiled.
Needless to say, the implications of this mystery character appearing in the film has major ramifications for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The film is part of Marvel's Phase 4, and is Marvel's first big superhero outing of 2022, with sequels to 'Thor' and 'Black Panther' also on the way this year.
'Doctor Strange: In The Multiverse Of Madness' will weave its spell on Irish audiences on May 6th.
