The canine Avengers assemble in new 'Doctor Strange' promo

Posted on

Today is Halloween — a time for carving pumpkins, binging on candy, and, of course, dressing your pets up in culturally relevant costumes. And to celebrate the holiday, the nice people at Marvel have a treat for all of us: a video of dogs dressed up as Marvel heroes, narrated by Doctor Strange star Benedict Cumberbatch.

Almost the entire gang is here, from a floppy St. Bernard puppy dressed as Iron Man to a tiny scientist Chihuahua that transforms into an enormous green Labrador when he gets angry. There’s even a scruffy little Thor, who comes with his own mini Mjolnir.

“Now it’s time for a new hero to rise, one who will fight to protect the very fabric of reality itself,” Cumberbatch explains before introducing Marvel’s newest hero: a tiny pug dressed as Doctor Strange (complete with a pug-sized Cloak of Levitation and Eye of Agamotto).

Cumberbatch stars as the titular doctor in Marvel’s latest, alongside Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Rachel McAdams. Dogtor Doctor Strange hits theaters Nov. 4.
