New Doctor Strange TV Spot: Cloak of Levitation Has Mind of Its Own

This new Doctor Strange television spot is only 15-seconds long, but it is filled to the gills with brand new footage and dialogue.

It begins with one of Strange's magical defenses fizzling out, but the real highlight is when Mordo (played by Chiwetel Ejiofor) tells Strange that the Cloak of Levitation, a cloak that allows the wearer to fly, has taken a liking to the former neurosurgeon, and then we see Strange struggling with the cloak, which has a mind of its own.

During a set visit, costume designer Alexandra Byrne talked about the Cloak of Levitation being sentient. "It's about getting the spirit and for want of another world, the magic," Byrne told (and other press). "To be entranced by the cloak and the cloak is sentient, it's its own character, so you have to have something that feels like it has an amazing sense of history and antiquity and is a relic in itself. "

From Marvel comes DOCTOR STRANGE, the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place – a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long Strange – armed with newly acquired magical powers – is forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence. Join Strange on his dangerous, mystifying, and totally mind-bending journey.

The cast features Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Star Into Darkness, The Imitation Game), Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave), Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes), Michael Stuhlbarg (A Serious Man), Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale) and Tilda Swinton (The Grand Budapest Hotel).

The film is directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister) and written by Derrickson, Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), and C. Robert Cargill (Sinister).

Marvel's Doctor Strange is produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Charles Newirth, Stephen Broussard and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.
