While nearly every Marvel hero in every part of this interconnected cinematic universe gets a complete makeover, the titular Master of the Mystic Arts is in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness had to wear the same outfit for five films. However, his recent solo outing finally corrects this overlooked facet by finally giving the superhero the Kamar Taj “Master” outfit.
In a recent press release for the Doctor Strange Sequel, costume designer Graham Churchyard explained how Kevin Feige personally intervened to get a redesign for his film.
With this movie, Kevin [Feige] wanted to upgrade Doctor Strange’s costume. On all his previous trips he had remained in his school uniform. Although he had graduated and was now a master, in infinity and in endgame he’s wearing the student costume, so Kevin wanted to use the new film as an opportunity to upgrade him to wear a master costume right from the start, which we tailored to give him a very heroic and powerful silhouette.
To do justice to the original costume, the knitting was done with such intricacy and detail that many of us didn’t mind seeing Strange in the same outfit over and over again. This new design is much simpler and easier on the eye, although it’s unclear if he’ll continue to wear it for future MCU outings. Whatever the changes, it’s safe to say that one thing will always be a constant when it comes to Strange’s attire, and that’s the Cloak of Levitation.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is currently in cinemas.
