Plot Synopsis For 'Doctor Strange' Revealed
Two years ago, Guardians of the Galaxy premiered and blew up the Marvel formula. The wildly fun and original film was unlike anything else in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and somehow ended up being arguably the studio's best film to date. This fall, Doctor Strange looks to be even weirder than Guardians was in its bid for the title of strangest MCU movie, and now we finally have a better idea of what the film is about.

Marvel released the official synopsis for the film on June 20, and here it is:

Opening quote
"Marvel's Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City's Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe."
Closing quote


OK, so the synopsis doesn't really provide much new information. We basically already new that Strange would be based in Greenwich Village and would be traveling to other dimensions, but the interesting addition here is the "vast array of abilities and artifacts". Strange's powers have always been a little unclear, so the idea that we'll get to see a bunch of them on screen is intriguing. The artifact angle sounds especially cool, and we can't help but wonder if an Infinity Stone might pop up in there somewhere.

Unfortunately, there's no mention of who Mads Mikkelsen's big bad is, though the actor recently claimed he may not be as evil as we initially believed. We're hoping that a full-length trailer with some more answers will drop soon, because this film's November premiere date seems awfully far away right now.
