Benedict Cumberbatch made an entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2016 as Doctor Strange and played a key role in the final battle of Avengers: Endgame. Benedict’s Doctor Stephen Strange’s character is entirely different from all the Marvel superheroes we have seen. His superpowers lies in his magical tricks.
In Doctor Strange, we see how Benedict Cumberbatch’s character goes to the Ancient One after a major car accident so that his hands function normally. However, he ends up becoming of the Earth’s mightiest heroes in the film.
In the film, a red cloak of levitation goes to Doctor Strange during a fight scene. The cloak isn’t the one that anyone can have, it chooses its sorcerer. However, the initial plans by Marvel for Strange’s cloak were different.
Initially, the makers planned a blue cloak of levitation for the Sherlock Holmes’ actor. The unused design of the same was shared by Marvel’s artist Ryan Meinerding on his Instagram page. In his poster, in fact, in the comics too, Doctor Strange wore a blue cloak. Ryan captioned it, “Unused Dr. Strange design from Dr. Strange. #drstrange.”
It is baffling that the makers used a red cloak as in comics also, Stephen Strange wore a blue cloak of levitation.

Meanwhile, Benedict Cumberbatch will reprise his role in the film Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness. The film is set after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Along with Strange, the film will also have Scarlet Witch aka WandaVision playing a pivotal role.
