Numerous rumors have teased the appearance of multiple variants of Doctor Strange in the upcoming Marvel Studios blockbuster. And now, new promotional material for the film has offered the clearest look yet at one such individual.
New art for an upcoming Marvel Legends figure has revealed a look at a character dubbed Defender Strange. This new Strange has been teased before and even spotted in some leaked footage, but this is the first clear look at his costume.

This variant appears to have abandoned Strange’s Eye of Agamotto and the Cloak of Levitation. It is unclear what role the character will play in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness but based on his prevalence in the marketing, it seems it may be substantial.
Benedict Wong, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams are set to reprise their roles from the original film as Wong, Strange’s nemesis Mordo, and Christine Palmer, alongside Benedict Cumberbatch, respectively. Xochitl Gomez is also set to make her MCU debut as America Chavez. Sam Raimi took over directing duties for the movie after Scott Derrickson exited the project earlier this year.
