"Doctor Strange" Film Synopsis Touts Powers, Origin & Greenwich Village Setting

A rumored new synopsis for the upcoming "Doctor Strange" film includes several elements of the character's origin and skill set that fans from the comics know quite well.

In addition to concisely summing up the character's origin, the new synopsis tells of a "hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions," and among other magical jargon, touts the setting of Greenwich Village. In the original Marvel comics, Doctor Strange's headquarters, the Sanctum Sanctorum, is based in the (super expensive) New York City neighbourhood, and was at one time disguised as a Starbucks in the area.

Take a look at the updated synopsis (via Stitch Kingdom) below:

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.

Directed by Derrickson, written by C. Robert Cargill and Jon Spaihts, and starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton, Mads Mikkelsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor and others, "Doctor Strange" hits theaters on November 4, 2016.
