Marvel’s Doctor Strange introduced new concepts and worlds to the Marvel Cinematic Universe that dazzled and mystified audiences. Of course, with a character as unique as the Sorcerer Supreme, it is expected that bringing the character to the big screen would be a continuously developing project before the creative minds on the film would settle on any final decisions. Now, Marvel Studios visual development supervisor and concept artist Andy Park has shared a concept illustration, offering fans a look at an alternate costume design for the titular hero.
The concept design features Doctor Strange in what could be described as a more sleek and modern version of the costume that was ultimately chosen for the final film. Also, note the coverings on the sorcerer supreme’s hands.
