Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige produces, and Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Eric Hauserman Carroll, and Jamie Christopher serve as executive producers. The screenplay was written by Michael Waldron.

Released in November of 2016, the first movie was directed by Scott Derrickson and features the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange, whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands.

When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing and hope in an unlikely place – a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj.

Before long, Strange — armed with newly acquired magical powers — is forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.

In addition to the new featurette, we’ve also included two new TV spots that were released for the movie over the last week.
