Doctor Strange‘s Cloak of Levitation has a Pesky Collar

For the first batch of Doctor Strange trailers and teasers that Marvel Studios had released, there was little of the studio's signature wisecracking and much more of the studio's signature world building. Doctor Strange is Marvel's weirdest superhero, dealing less in the physical, material world of The Avengers and much more in a mystical, mind-bending world of its own.

Lately, however, we've started to see some witty repartee in recent teasers, like in this one in which Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) goes mano-y-mano with the film's main villain, Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen), and tries to introduce himself with an air of authority and cool. It doesn't go so well.

We get some of this levity in the latest promo, where Doctor Strange shows off his cool Cloak of Levitation, one that has a collar that won't really abide his demands.

Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Rachel McAdams (The Vow), Michael Stuhlbarg (Pawn Sacrifice), Scott Adkins (The Bourne Ultimatum), and Amy Landecker (Transparent). The film is directed by Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily RoseDeliver Us From Evil) from a script by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus, Passengers) and C. Robert Cargill (Sinister). It opens in theaters on Friday, November 4.
