Skilled but self-absorbed neurosurgeon Dr Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), irreversibly damages the nerves in his hands – the source of his wealth and stardom. After exhausting his resources to seek a cure, he is taken in at a temple for the mystic arts, but resists the claims of the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) that his mind can overcome his condition. However, when she shows him the power of the Mirror Dimension, he is converted. Using the pulsing green Eye of Agamotto, which allows time to be looped and rewound, Strange dons the Cloak of Levitation to battle the zealot known as Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen). Cities resemble the optical art of Escher and time is looped as the pieces of the Infinity Stone puzzle build toward Avengers: Infinity War, due for release in 2018.
