The Avengers get a name drop in the new Doctor Strange trailer

Marvel has released a new trailer for its upcoming addition to the MCU, Doctor Strange (opens in new tab), and a certain world-saving team got a mention. 

The trailer is action-packed and FULL of new footage to make you 'ooo' and 'ahh' but the moment which really got my inner Marvel geek excited was when Benedict Wong explained: "The Avengers protect the world from physical dangers. We safe guard it against more mystical threats."

Watch the new trailer below...

We also get a longer look at pre-superhero Dr Strange as the suited-and-booted Benedict Cumberbatch strolls around his penthouse, apparently dripping in wealth. All that changes after his accident though and it's not long before he's asking the Ancient One to 'teach him'. 

Mads Mikkelsen also makes another appearance in this trailer and something tells me, the villain's quick wit and sense of humour is going to make him one of the best things about this movie.

Directed by Scott Derickson and starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Mads Mikkelsen, Doctor Strange is released in UK cinemas on October 25, 2016 before opening in US theatres on November 4, 2016.
