Another Doctor Strange TV spot = more tidbits of great new footage.

Marvel has unveiled a new TV spot for Doctor Strange, giving us a little more humour and a great moment between Cumberbatch’s titular hero and his Cloak of Levitation.

For those unfamiliar, this overgarment does as its name suggests and give its wearer the ability to levitate and fly. Apart from that, as the trailer hints at, it’s got bit of personality.

“He has a Cloak of Levitation that allows him to fly, but he doesn’t fly like Superman or like Thor,” Marvel’s Kevin Feige told EW late last year.

“It’s almost got a consciousness of its own, this cloak, which, again, gives us a superhero with a red cape — which we’ve seen a few times — but allows us to do it in a wholly unique and wholly original way.”

Doctor Strange just continues to look better and better. The next Marvel film, also starring Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt, and Scott Adkins, arrives in Australia on October 27 and hits the U.S. on November 4.

Synopsis for Doctor Strange:

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 when Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” opens in U.S. theaters on November 4, 2016.
