The glimpse into this new franchise included a well-rounded amount of story, action, spectacle, and wonderment packed into 15 minutes. The preview opened with a suave, egotistical Doctor Strange and his caring nurse assistant chatting together at a hospital. Doctor Strange is at the end of his shift and leaves the hospital. As he drives out of New York City through a mountainous road, he gets distracted by a text and crashes into the mountain. This terrible accident leaves him in a devastated physical state and cannot operate as a surgeon any longer. At a loss for hope, he searches for meaning and finds himself seeking advice from a spiritual being named Ancient One. She helps him discover that there is much more in the world than he could possibly ever imagine. She takes him through a visually stunning journey through the universe, in which the audience experiences with Doctor Strange. He flies through layers of black holes, reversed galaxies, and flamboyant chaotic swirls sweep over the screen. This voyage through time and space urges him to continue on this spiritual adventure in order to protect the planet from evil.
