Here's the full trailer and, below, we'll go through five takeaways that will help you dive into this famed hero's Marvel-ous world.

1. The Accident

The IMDb, or Internet Movie Database, explains that Stephen Strange becomes a hero after his career is destroyed. We see a devastating car crash, which might be the cause. In the books, it's this accident that ruins his hands so, as a world-renowned surgeon, this is the end of his current career.

2. Rachel McAdams

We still don't know her name in the movie, but we see her in the hospital after Strange's accident. She is by his bedside as he is rushed possibly to surgery to save his life. This could and most likely will be the start of a romance?

3. The Ancient One

Tilda Swinton is nothing short of a chameleon and her entry into the Marvel universe should be both fascinating and exciting. She is the "One" who will train Strange to be something more than an arrogant doctor. He will be a hero and guardian of Earth. The scenes with these two fine actors together is something fans will be eagerly awaiting.

4. Baron Mordo

This movie is chocked full of Oscar winners and nominees! The great Chiwetel Ejiofor steps in to play Baron Mordo, the nemesis of Doctor Strange from the books. We only see the man for a second, but he looks pensive and nothing to be trifled with.

There is also this mystical voice at the opening that could be his warning to Strange later in the movie. Or it could be someone else; it's a voice-over!

"Forget everything that you think you know," the voice says.

5. The Cape

You can't have a "Doctor Strange" movie without his glorious cape. You hear loud footsteps, then at 1:53 of the clip, you see the silhouette that can be none other than the man himself, the Master of the Mystic Arts!

"Doctor Strange" hits theaters Nov. 4, and Marvel is part of the same parent company, Disney, as ABC News.
