Reactions: Marvel’s Doctor Strange Teaser Trailer

The world premiere of the new Doctor Strange teaser trailer has just arrived! Here are our first cinematic glimpses of Benedict Cumberbatch as Steven Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme, and Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One. The film is set to debut in theaters November 4, 2016 and in addition to Cumberbatch and Swinton, stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Mads Mikkelsen. I didn’t grow up reading Doctor Strange in the comics, so I know very little about the actual comic book storyline and characters. However, there is controversy over the casting of Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One, who was depicted as an Asian man in the comics. Hollywood has a long history of “whitewashing” ethnic characters and appropriating culture. It’s nothing new, but certainly something that needs to be continually addressed until people of color are regularly cast in leading roles in major big budget films. With all that said, am I excited to see this film? You’ll have to watch the video below to know for sure. Also don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube Channel!

First Look at the ‘Sherlock’ Victorian Special!

If anyone ever has had a complaint about Sherlock, it probably was that the series was just way too modern.

Though to be fair, the BBC’s take on the classic story actually stays pretty close to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle‘s original books.

Either way, if the people want classic Victorian Sherlock, then that’s what the people are going to get!

A brand new clip from the upcoming Sherlock special was just revealed at Comic-Con, and we have it right here:

Different era, same old Sherlock.

The Victorian special will be released sometime next year and will appear in select theaters.

Writing for season 4 of the normal, modernĀ Sherlock hasn’t even begun, so hopefully the Victorian special will ease some anxiety fans have while they impatiently wait for the new season!
