Marvel Studios released a new preview for Doctor Strange that includes some fresh footage to go along with behind-the-scenes shots of the film's production and commentary from the cast and creative team.

We’re still more than a month away from seeing Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme in action, but the studio is keeping anticipation high with a new preview of Doctor Strange that offers some behind-the-scenes footage, commentary, and some fresh footage.

The feature — titled Inside the Magic — mingles commentary from the cast and creative team on the film with a mix of both finished footage and some backstage shots from the November release, which is intended to put the spotlight on the occult side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose), Doctor Strange casts Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) as Stephen Strange, an expert surgeon who finds himself immersed in the world of magic while searching for a way to repair his damaged hands after a near-fatal accident.

The impressive cast also includes Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton, We Need to Talk About Kevin) as The Ancient One, the enigmatic figure who mentors Strange during his magical awakening. She is joined by Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) as Baron Mordo, Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen as Kaecilius (the film’s primary villain), Benedict Wong (The Martian) as Strange’s assistant, and Oscar nominee Rachel McAdams (Spotlight, Mean Girls), as Christine Palmer. Michael Stuhlbarg (Pawn Sacrifice), Scott Adkins (The Bourne Ultimatum), and Amy Landecker (Transparent) all play supporting roles.

The second film in “Phase Three” of Marvel’s cinematic universe, Doctor Strange follows this year’s Captain America: Civil War and will be followed by 2017’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. The script for Doctor Strange was penned by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus, Passengers) and C. Robert Cargill (Sinister).

Doctor Strange hits theaters November 4.
