The Multiverse of Cumberbatch

Is it weird that I don't think of "Dr. Strange" as Benedict Cumberbatch anymore? The actor and the Marvel character have become separate entities in my brain. (I suppose this is especially appropriate given the split realities of the forthcoming sequel.) When I watched The Power of the Dog, all four or five times I have done so, I never once thought of the MCU, and vice versa -- looking at the trailer for the latest Dr. Strange movie, which premiered during the Super Bowl yesterday, I have to walk my brain hand in hand to the realization that Strange is Cumberbatch. Cumberbatch is Strange! 

Who knew the power of some gray streaks and a goatee? I'll have to remember this for when I inevitably have to change my identity and go on the run. Anyway, this trailer! I only just watched it now since I plainly do not watch the Super Bowl (and even though I know it makes me a dick, well, what's new, but I also think a little less of anyone who does watch the Super Bowl -- sorry, them's just the breaks) and it's a blast. Whether you're an MCU fan or not -- and I am, even while I am fully cognizant of the limitations -- I think this is one to be excited about, because Sam Raimi, baby. Here's the trailer:

Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness is out on May 6th.
