We’re a little more than two months away from the premiere of Scott Derrickson’s ‘Doctor Strange’ and the promotional campaign is already well under way. We’ve already seen a few trailers and a number of stills and posters for the Sorcerer Supreme’s debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but now we get a much closer look at the other magical people that will be surrounding the good doctor in his upcoming Phase Three film thanks to a featurette that encourages True Believers to open their minds.

Earlier this week, Marvel Entertainment released an exclusive sneak peek for ‘Doctor Strange’ on their YouTube channel. Judging by the ad at the end of the video, it looks as though this may be a small portion of a larger video that will be included on the home release of ‘Captain America: Civil War’, which is set to drop on September 13th. In this minute-long snippet, the cast and crew including Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, and Mads Mikkelsen discuss some other masters of the mystical arts such as Karl Mordo, the Ancient One, and Kaecilius and his Zealots. And though we’ve seen much of the footage already, we get to learn more about the villains’ motivations in the movie courtesy of this quick glimpse. You can check it out below, followed by the official synopsis of the film:

Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange’ follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Now that we know more about the more magical beings in the movie, it’s got to be a matter of time before we see some promotional material involving the regular people in Strange’s life like his companion Wong, Christine Palmer, or Nicodemus West. Although until then, what do you think about the latest sneak peek at ‘Doctor Strange’? Are you excited to see both sides of the mystic arts go at it on this plane and beyond? Let us know in the comments.

‘Doctor Strange’ starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benedict Wong, and Mads Mikkelsen emerges on this plane on November 4, 2016.
