Marvel Moves Up Doctor Strange UK Release Date … Aaand None for the U.S.

Sorry, not sorry.

Heads up, UK fans. Marvel has moved up the release date for Doctor Strange, so you’ll get to see a caped Benedict Cumberbatch a whole three days earlier. According to the company’s United Kingdom and Ireland Twitter account, the film will now head to theaters on Oct. 25 instead of the original Oct. 28 date. No reason was given for the move, so you’ll have to sit and ponder that yourself.

For those in the U.S., you’ll have to settle for seeing the movie after Halloween. The film comes out on Nov. 4, which isn’t that much later but still leaves one vulnerable to spoilers.

To refresh your memory, the film follows a neuroseurgeon named Stephen Strange whose hands are compromised in a horrific accident. However, he finds a new purpose in life when the Ancient One reveals that he is the new Sorcerer Supreme. Now, it’s up to him to protect the world from multidimensional threats.

Marvel’s Russian account recently tweeted a new photo of Strange in the Sanctum Sanctorum.

Are you all excited? Fatigued? Indifferent?
