Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness costume designer Graham Churchyard discusses the surprising complexities of Doctor Strange’s Cloak of Levitation. First introduced in 2016’s
Doctor Strange, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Master of the Mystic Arts has since established himself as one of the MCU’s major players. Earlier this year, audiences saw Doctor Strange enter uncharted territory with the release of
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, with many keen to see what’s next for the powerful sorcerer following the film’s formal introduction of the multiverse.,As one of Marvel’s more powerful beings, Doctor Strange boasts a variety of abilities that harness the power of spell-casting, but perhaps one of his more memorable components comes in the form of the Cloak of Levitation. While the cloak is its own separate entity, it acts as somewhat of an extension of Doctor Strange’s powers and is entirely autonomous, even seeming to have its own consciousness. The iconic red cloak, which appeared as blue in early
Doctor Strange concept art, is one of the MCU’s more instantly recognizable pieces, and now it’s been revealed that a meticulous amount of detail went into its creation.,Related: Doctor Strange 2 Alternate Ending Would’ve Made No Way Home Even Better,In a recent interview with
Inverse, Churchyard discusses the incredible amount of work that went into creating the Cloak of Levitation, which received a new look for
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Having worked on a number of major blockbusters, both within and outside of the MCU, Churchyard describes the process of creating such an iconic piece as a combination of different techniques. Check out his full quote below.,While the Cloak of Levitation is frequently seen on screen alongside Doctor Strange, this insane amount of detail easily goes unnoticed, as it is not often shown up close. Churchyard was also behind a variety of other stand-out costume pieces for
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, including America Chavez’s jacket. The designer also discussed the process behind Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch costume, which was designed to reflect the terrifying grip that the Darkhold has over her throughout the events of the film.,It’s always fascinating to hear about the amount of detail that goes into the creation of costume pieces such as the Cloak of Levitation. As such as memorable piece, it’s certainly understandable that the design process would be so meticulous in order to create a final product in which the true power of the piece is reflected. With 
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness having teased an exciting future ahead for Doctor Strange, the Cloak of Levitation is more than likely to make a return alongside its magical owner, so perhaps audiences will get the chance to admire it up close in the future.,Next: Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness Easter Eggs & MCU References,Source: Inverse
