With Captain America: Civil War now behind us, the world is preparing for Benedict Cumberbatch's long-awaited Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as gifted surgeon and future Master of the Mystic Arts Dr. Stephen Strange. And in order to whet our appetite, Marvel has unleashed four new TV spots.

The Sorcerer Supreme is set to be officially introduced for the first time (although he was first name-dropped in Captain America: The Winter Soldier) in director Scott Derrickson’s (Sinister) trippy Doctor Strange movie, which will open in a little over two months. (Are we in November yet?)

The movie will establish Doctor Strange’s origin story for the very first time on the big screen, and introduce us to the mystical side of the MCU as well as a new roster of characters, including Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One, Mads Mikkelsen as Kaecilius, Benedict Wong as Wong and Rachel McAdams as Christine Palmer.

From Marvel comes DOCTOR STRANGE, 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. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. 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. Join Strange on his dangerous, mystifying, and totally mind-bending journey.

Marvel's Doctor Strange will open in movie theaters on Nov. 4.
