So it's official! Doctor Strange has officially stopped filing and that can only mean one thing- A trailer will soon be on its way. Although very little is known about ever anticipated film below I've compiled a few of the most important revelation so far.

So what do we know so far?

Well we've got an inkling of the plot and we know that Doctor Strange is, in fact an Origin's story. However all we know thus far that Stephan Strange was a brilliant neurosurgeon who ruined his career in a car crash. After this unfortunate event Strange goes on a journey of healing. Well one thing leads to another and he ends up learning about the mystic arts. That's all from the plot.

Who's Who?

We also know a few of the leads. Benedict Cumberbatch, best known for is portrayal of Sherlock on BBC's Sherlock, is playing the leading role of Doctor Strange. Well known for playing intellectual and history defining characters Cumberbatch was just the man for the job. And, let's be honest, it's like he was born to wear this mystic cape.

Chiwetel Ejiofor will also be doing Cumberbatch on the mystic screen as Karl Mordo. Another student of the Ancient One from the little revealed, contrary to his comic book character, he's on the good guys side- for now. It will be pretty interesting to watch his transition from light to dark to finally take on the mantle of Baron Mordo.

You may be thinking, who if the person responsible for teaching such mortal men about the Mystic Arts? Well that role falls on the shoulders of the Ancient One,played by Tilda Swinton. Although this casting was met with some criticism since the Ancient One is a man in the comics I have no doubts that Swinton will not fail to make a hero out of Strange.

The last character is actually still quite a mystery. Mads Mikkelsen plays the role of a sorcerer who creates his own sect as he believes the accent one is only protecting his own power. Although many believe him to be the villain of this story I do not believe he intentionally act villainous. For all we know Mikkelsen's character may ultimately be good but his good intentions may lead him to do evil things. it will be these evil things that may lead to the creation of the Fear Lords or some other iconic Doctor Strange villain.

Although the rest of the plot is still shrouded in mystery the images above are just a few of many on set images that are assuring fans of how awesome this film will be. Doctor Strange hits the big screen November 4th so, until then, we will just have to wait for more magical revelations.
