10 Best Doctor Strange Costumes In The Multiverse Of Madness
This article contains major spoilers for Dr. Strange 2: Multiverse of Madness.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022) introduced new characters and expanded on those that were already popular with audiences in previous films.
The large cast of heroes and superheroes meant extra work for costume designer Graham Churchyard, who was tasked with imagining how the comic book characters would dress and be presented to the film’s audience. The Costume Supervisor for the 2000s Don Quixote – for which he was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award – did an outstanding job of turning them into reality and even took it upon himself to refresh the well-known costumes of characters such as Scarlet Witch, Doctor Strange or Christine Palmer.
During the Blip period, Wong became the Sorcerer Supreme in place of Doctor Strange. This meant that an upgrade to his costume in accordance with his new status was in order.
First strange doctor movie, he had a simpler Bordeaux tunic with dark blue and brown detailing with a three-wrap braided sash. In The Multiverseher costume gained depth, with the addition of vibrant colors like gold or blue.
Palmer had a smaller story arc in this movie, appearing in just one scene at the start, but it was enough to show how much she means to Stephen Strange.
During the Blip’s years, she moved on, believing he was gone forever, and now she’s marrying someone else. Her wedding dress and makeup are simple and elegant, matching her down-to-earth personality. Her bouquet is made up of white and beige roses and her hair is tied in a high bun.
Christine Palmer’s variant
Strange and America encounter the Earth-838 version of Christine Palmer at Illuminati headquarters. She is not a doctor like her Earth-616 counterpart, she was a researcher for the Baxter Foundation, specializing in the multiverse.
Under a white blouse, which she quickly abandons, Palmer wears a straight blouse entirely in blue, crowned with a belt. Her hair seems shinier, its red contrasting against the deep blue of the fabric.
A variant of Strange featured in the first scene with America Chavez, Defender Strange takes a closer look to the comics. He’s ditched the levitation cloak, and his vest details are red and gold, with multiple layers and textures giving it depth.
His belt is also very intricate: brown leather under a crimson band and a large golden circle. Her hair is long and tied back in a “ponytail” which provided a moment of comic relief when MCU Doctor Strange commented on it.
Captain Peggy Carter is one of the Earth-838 Illuminati responsible for protecting their world from invasion.
Her full suit is dark blue with two white stripes running across her chest and shoulders in a pattern reminiscent of the flag of the United Kingdom, which is also depicted in her Captain America-style shield, as she is known as Captain Britain . She is also one of the characters who have had better lives in the multiverse, as shown What if….
Clea is revealed in the mid-credit scene when she meets Doctor Strange and they walk through a portal to somewhere in the Multiverse.
Her outfit in strange doctor is very similar to her outfit from the comics. He’s all purple, with a detailed corset that hugs his figure and pointed paddings that elongate his shoulders, giving him a regal posture. She has a darker cape in the same shade as her pants, adorned with circular patterns.
In a collapsing universe, Doctor Strange and America Chavez encounter another version of him named Sinister Strange.
Being a darker variant who destroyed his own world trying to get his Christine back, it makes sense that his costume would also sport darker shades of blue and brown leather. His levitation cape is nowhere to be found, his hair is pulled back, and his beard is longer than the MCU Strange’s, all contributing to his unkempt vibe.
One of the most recent introductions to the MCU multiverse, Chavez is a powerful teenager with the ability to travel between universes.
During his travels through the multiverse, of which a total of 22 universes are featured in Doctor Strange 2, she kept her classic denim jacket sprayed with comic-inspired American colors. The fact that she wears very casual, unarmored clothing is also symbolic of her physical invulnerability.
It was recently revealed that producer Kevin Feige had a special request for Doctor Strange 2: Multiverse of Madness regarding Doctor Strange’s outfit.
For him, it was important that Stephen Strange sport a “master costume” rather than the “disciple costume” he wore in his later appearances in the MCU. The new cuffs are leather-based, the boots are taller, and even the levitation cape has a more majestic look, with a higher, pointed neck and golden wing detailing on his chest around his eye. Agamotto.
The Scarlet Witch
Already there Wanda VisionWanda Maximoff’s costume has been improved to fit her more powerful story arc, and some tweaks have been added in The Multiverse of Madness to accompany its darker development.
She has black thigh high boots and skinny jeans surrounded by a long red half skirt. Her chest details are also darker, and now she wears slick fingerless gloves that enhance the visual effects of her powers. Her tiara also changed, becoming bigger and darker. Darker shades involve Wanda’s progression from a powerful but scared girl to a stronger character.
