Marvel Studios Visual Development Supervisor Ian Joyner has shared some more of his work from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, this time giving fans a look at his final design for the Steven Strange Variant from Earth-838.
Dubbed Supreme Strange, this take on the Sorcerer Supreme was a member of The Illuminati who "lost his way" and was ultimately executed by Black Bolt after causing an incursion by using the Darkhold.
We only got a quick glimpse of the character during this flashback (he's also depicted in statue form), so this artwork provides our best look yet at his distinctive costume.
"My final approved concept for Supreme Strange," writes Joyner. "It was really fun exploring the various looks to convey the attitude and history of each Multiversal Strange, We didn’t get to see much of this costume in the film, other Than the awesome Statue Production Designer Charlie Wood and his amazing team created for the memorial, but Costume Designer Graham Churchyard and the incredible costume team brought it to life brilliantly."
Will we ever see this Variant in the MCU again? We reckon this was a one-and-done appearance, but who knows what Marvel Studios has planned for the inevitable Doctor Strange threequel.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is now streaming on Disney+.
