We’re about two weeks away from Dr. Strange’s US release date (November 4th). With Marvel’s latest installment having already been released in Hong Kong, the American audience is now hearing of a few spoilers about the movie. The latest batch all but confirm the oft-reported meeting of Thor and Doctor Strange in, yes, Doctor Strange, and perhaps later in Thor: Ragnarok. So, on with the aforementioned proof of Thor’s appearance in Doctor Strange!
For a while now, there have been rumors circulating as to whether or not Benedict Cumberbatch will reprise his role in Thor: Ragnarok. But, with the release of Dr. Strange comes allegations that it might be the other way around, at least at first. This would be a great way to pull the good doctor into the MCU.
Stephen Strange was actually mentioned in “Captain America: winter soldier” very briefly
We All Love Post-Credit Scenes
So, I’m assuming that everyone seeing Dr. Strange has seen a Marvel movie before. But, if you haven’t, STAY AFTER THE CREDITS END. Since Iron Man, the MCU films have featured post-credit scenes. These days, we even get two, with a mid-credist scene thrown into the mix. And I promise you, they’re not all just the Avengers eating Shawarma. Remember at the end of Thor, when we found out Loki was alive? Or at the end of The Winter Soldier, when we were introduced to the twins? Good stuff.
So…Will Thor Be Appearing in Dr. Strange?
According to Christian Daily, the mid-credits scene will feature Dr. Strange inviting Thor into his Sanctum Sanctorum to discuss Thor’s younger, adopted brother (and overall toublemaker), Loki. Another item to link the two superheroes together is Strange’s amulet – The Eye of Agamotto, which features something very muck like an Infinity Stone.
It also deserves mention that Tilda Swinton (who plays The Ancient One in Dr. Strange) went on Jimmy Kimmel Live to discuss how a new planet appears in the movie. We already know Dr. Strange involves new dimensions and worlds, so is it possible this mystery planet is, in fact, Asgard? It would certainly allow the meeting of Thor and Stephen, but we will have to wait to find out!
Dr. Strange is just five minutes under 2 hours, which is the shortest Marvel movie next to Thor: The Dark World. Remember, it comes out in the UK October 25th and in the USA on November 4th!
