Not seen it yet? You can watch the full "Doctor Strange" trailer here. Good, let's begin.

Like many Marvel heroes, Doctor Strange's origin story starts with tragedy, in this case, a devastating car wreck.

In the "Doctor Strange" movie, as in the comics, Dr. Stephen Strange (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) has a life-changing moment that makes him rethink reality.

Strange isn't the only Marvel comic book character to gain his powers after a car wreck. In the comics, Jessica Jones also becomes a superhero when her entire family dies in a fateful vehicle collision.

This isn't the first time Cumberbatch fans have seen the actor with a beard. Season 3 of "Sherlock" depicts the actor with whiskers having being held captive when he goes on the run after faking his own death.

It's tough to see Cumberbatch bloody and on the verge of death, but it's through extreme pain and tragedy that Doctor Strange becomes a superhero who can bend reality to his whim.

Rachel McAdams is clearly a medical colleague who helps save Dr. Strange's life after his car accident. Her character is also the human element who will keep him grounded in reality. But fingers crossed she's also Night Nurse from the Marvel comics.

Before his car accident, Dr. Stephen Strange is an egotistical but talented neurosurgeon. He cares more for money than the Hippocratic Oath.

After the crash, a scruffy exterior isn't Strange's only change. He must also transform his skeptical, scientific view of the world.

Originally created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko during the Silver Age of comics, Doctor Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme, protects us humans from magical threats.

While Strange may have to find uses for his hands other than surgery, it's clear in the trailer that making magic will be this superhero's new mission.

After the car wreck ruins his medical career due to the shakes, Strange has time on his hands. Time for a career change.

Chiwetel Ejiofor plays Baron Karl Mordo, a rival to Doctor Strange who also seeks to become the Sorcerer Supreme.

Doctor Strange travels the world in search of a cure to fully heal his injuries, and ends up finding a magical mission.

A hero's journey is never complete without a wise teacher. In this case, the ethereal Tilda Swinton plays the Ancient One -- a foreign mystic who trains Strange in the magical arts.

There's astral projection and then there's the Ancient One punching the soul out of Strange's body.

Before Doctor Strange can be the Sorcerer Supreme he must learn how to harness his psychic energy so he can travel beyond this realm.

After seeing this moment in the "Doctor Strange" trailer, fans might be comparing the impressive special effects to that of "The Matrix." Either way, the movie promises to be trippy in more ways than one.

No Marvel movie is quite the same without its unusual villain, in this case a yet-to-be-named a sorcerer played by Mads Mikkelsen, who likely means trouble for Doctor Strange.

Baron Mordo is a mysterious former student of the Ancient One -- a blend of different characters from the comics.

Apparently, Doctor Strange may have to do battle in multiple dimensions in this "Inception"-esque shot.

In the final shot of the trailer, we see Cumberbatch in his full superhero costume as the majestic Doctor Strange walking into his Sanctum Sanctorum, inside his Greenwich Village townhouse in New York.

The film opens October 27 in Australia, October 28 in the UK and November 4 in the US.
