Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness recently arrived on streaming, giving viewers a whole new opportunity to experience the Marvel Cinematic Universe film. The film’s version of the Marvel Comics group The Illuminati may be its most unexpected element, featuring a number of surprising Marvel characters. Among them was a new version of Charles Xavier/Professor X (Patrick Stewart), from the alternate universe of Earth-838 along with other members of The Illuminati.
While this version of Professor X may be from a new corner of the Marvel multiverse, his wardrobe seemed to be aesthetically inspired by the version. X-Men: The Animated Series, complete with a green suit and a yellow wheelchair. In a recent interview comicbook.com‘s phase zero podcast, variety of madness Costume designer Graham Churchyard talks about her animated series The effects, and how they stem from Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.
“We made his suit. Yes, he was overjoyed,” Churchyard revealed. “That was something from Kevin [Feige’s] childhood, animated seriesWith bright yellow, like Dodge car. do you dodge them? Do you call them bumper cars? Wheelchair looking like a ride, like a fair ground. that was something that was in animated series, and he came like, ‘Yeah, we’re doing this.’ So the prop guys made it for real, and we shot it in London with photo doubles. and then when it comes to extra [photography], they swapped in Patrick Stewart to match the editing they had already done. He did the editing, so work with him was then condensed as it was. But yes, it was a great image, and a green suit and striped tie and white shirt. I mean, Kevin was over the moon that we were doing green suits.”
Churchyard also revealed how the Professor X costume had a surprising personal connection to Stewart’s real-life history.
“And that was made in London, because there’s a tailor’s shop – we used some fine Yorkshire wool fabrics,” Crutchyard said. “I worked with Patrick Stewart a few years ago, and then we took a little trip down memory lane. And in fact, his mother worked in the woolen trade in Yorkshire, England, so he was really happy that He wore something that came from my mother’s legacy of working in that industry.”
“I did a Zoom fitting with him at his house in LA, [and then] Sent some people down there from Marvel Studios,” Churchyard explained.
