I’m not sure if this gives us much more than we already knew, but it’s nice that they are going out of their way to make sure we know it’s heavily tied to the MCU.

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.

Along with Benedict Cumberbatch, Doctor Strange also stars Mads Mikkelsen, Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton, and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
