Marvel Studios’ Ryan Meinerding has shared new Doctor Strange concept art which gives us a look at the alternate designs that were considered for Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme.
A few says ago, Disney and Marvel Studios reshuffled their upcoming Phase 4 line-up due to the delays caused by the coronavirus outbreak. One of the films affected was Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, which moved from a May 2021 release date to Thor: Love and Thunder‘s November 2021 slot.
Spider-Man director Sam Raimi is stepping in to direct the upcoming sequel that will see the return of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange. With every new Marvel Cinematic Universe film, our heroes return with a new look. Marvel Studios’ Ryan Meinerding shared some unused designs of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange from the first film on his Instagram and said the following about the art:
“Unused Dr. Strange design from Dr. Strange. I love figuring out textures and patterns, and the embroidery on this was challenging but fun.”
You can check out the Doctor Strange concept art below.

Here is the synopsis for Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange:
From Marvel comes Doctor Strange, the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange, whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place – a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long Strange – armed with newly acquired magical powers – is forced to choose whether to return to his old life or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.
Directed by Scott Derrickson, Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong
Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt, Scott Adkins, Mads Mikkelsen, and Tilda Swinton.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is scheduled to be released in theaters on November 5, 2021.
