Nerd News | Doctor Strange and Suicide Squad trailers

Friday, April 15
I know very little about the character of Doctor Strange, other than that he uses "real" magic and is part of the Marvel Universe. Also, his upcoming solo movie stars Benedict Cumberbatch, who I adore, and the likes of Mads Mikkelson, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Rachel McAdams, all of whom I also adore. So I was pretty excited to watch this teaser trailer.

I can't help thinking "This looks awesome," even knowing that this trailer has received mixed reviews on the Internet, particularly surrounding POC characters (or lack there of), female superhero-led solo films (or lack there of) and cultural appropriation in comics/comic movies. I trust in Marvel, however. If you'd like to voice your opinions to the contrary, I'm totally happy to discuss in the comments.

If you're like me and don't know what you don't know about Doctor Strange, check this video out.1

I'm also now totally on board with Suicide Squad, which makes me a little surprised considering my earlier feelings (and my general "meh" feeling about DC's movies). But this trailer makes it look like a ridiculous romp of a movie, which makes me delighted.

Also of note:

1, 2 Thanks, Colt!
