Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen at the DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS Berlin Photocall

Posted on April 21, 2022

The Marvel promo train is leaving the station once again. All is right with the world.  Shut up. Let us have our little fantasies. We just love a good Disney-Dollar-funded promotional tour because no one ever slacks on those things. There’s too much money on the line. And yet…



We find ourselves somewhat disappointed by these initial results. Cumberbatch has an interesting red carpet history. He vacillates between the two extremes of “prestige British actor” style and “indie film king” style. In other words, it’s either the very best in formal menswear or he comes out looking like he slept in his outfit. A Marvel film doesn’t necessarily call for bespoke suiting, but we don’t think this sort of messy-ass look works any better. As for her, we’re happy she’s not falling into the “must dress according to a theme” trap that befalls so many superhero actors on the red carpet. We would be very happy if she avoided any shades of red through this entire promotional tour. This look is an interesting choice, but it strikes as an FMO – For Models Only. Amateur clothes-wearers might find it too difficult to pull off. The proportions of the broad shoulders, slight peplum and elephant leg pants aren’t great and we find ourselves wondering if this might look better without the jacket. That top looks pretty nice and we wish we could see more of it.
