Marvel Takeover of Jimmy Kimmel (Tuesday Night with ‘Doctor Strange’)

All this week Jimmy Kimmel Live will have various MCU characters coming in and working the promotional machine. Even though I am not a fan of the late night host, I’m definitely doing my happy dance because it is the MCU.

Last night featured the first trailer to Doctor Strange! Take a look:

Very mind trippy as we are finally going to be introduced to magic in the MCU!

I can’t say enough good things about both Benedict Cumberbatch and Chiwetel Ejiofor. They are two of my favorite actors so I am pretty stoked to see them in the MCU. I was not happy with the casting of Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One because making the character a woman doesn’t balance out the white washing. After seeing her in the teaser, I’m still not sold on it.

So far no real information about the plot other than we see Stephen Strange in the wreck that destroys his hands, him traveling to find answers, and meeting the Ancient One who teaches him there is more than just the reality he knows.

Clark Gregg was a guest on the late night show to promote Agents of SHIELD and revealed he is not in Captain America: Civil War but he is alive in the MCU despite some comments made by Joss Whedon. He also teased a death on an upcoming episode. Take a look:
