Doctor Strange Diagnoses Roughest 'Civil War' Injuries in New Promo
He might not have made an appearance in the movie itself, but that doesn't mean that the events of Captain America: Civil War were ignored by Marvel's next big thing, Doctor Stephen Strange. Indeed, he's ready to give his diagnosis about what happened during the superhero smash-up.
In a fun new promo for next month's Doctor Strange, Benedict Cumberbatch's surgeon-turned-sorcerer takes a look at different injuries inflicted during Marvel's other 2016 movie and suggests potential remedies. A villain who gets hit in the head by Captain America's shield is diagnosed with "bodily impact and Vibranium-based trauma," while the Winter Soldier's cuts from the Black Panther's claws earn a scoffing, "It's just a scratch, I mean, come on."
Not everything is so easily dealt with, however; the removal of the Winter Soldier's mechanical arm prompts a Star Trek-referencing, "I'm a doctor, not a mechanic," and Civil War's climactic fight between Captain America and Iron Man earns a sigh, and the diagnosis, "That's a broken heart. I'm afraid there's no medical treatment for that … but maybe a distraction might help!" A distraction like, say, the imminent release of Marvel's new movie …
Watch the new promo below. Doctor Strange will reach theaters Nov. 4.
