Spoilers for Doctor Strange Ahead!

Marvel’s post-credits scenes have gone from being an unexpected delight to a downright necessary part of the viewing experience, such that people hunger as much for them as the movie itself. Doctor Strange has the honor of being the 14th Marvel Cinematic Universe movie in nine years, & the 14th in a row khổng lồ feature teases và hints about what might happen next.

Want khổng lồ know what the fuss is about this time? Here we go!

Mid-credits scene

The screen goes blaông chồng. “So Earth has wizards now?” asks a deep, familiar, Asgardian voice. The picture returns. We’re in Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum & he’s entertaining a visit from Thor, dressed in casual (human) clothing và whose “tea” is replaced with a large flagon of mead (which automatically refills when he empties it).

Strange explains khổng lồ Thor that he keeps “a watch danh sách of individuals and beings from other realms” who shouldn’t be on Earth, and that Thor’s brother Loki is one of those beings. Strange asks hyên ổn directly: why have you brought Loki to lớn New York?

Thor responds that “it’s a bit of a long story. Family drama. We’re looking for my father.” Strange asks if they manage khổng lồ find Odin they’ll all return lớn Asgard “promptly?” và Thor replies “Oh yes. Promptly.” in a not-at-all convincing manner. “Great.” says Doctor Strange. “I’m gonmãng cầu help you.”

So, what does it mean? Doctor Strange Director Scott Derrickson confirmed to lớn us that this was shot by Taika Waititi, meaning it might actually be a scene from Thor: Ragnarok (as has happened on previous occasions). This is a little confusing, as it’s not only a significant time jump from the actual ending of the Doctor Strange movie, but it’s also something that appears to take place in the middle of Thor: Ragnarok.

At the very least, this confirms some of the plot of that movie: Loki’s deception from the over of Thor: The Dark World is going khổng lồ be quickly uncovered và the two brothers are going to return to lớn Thành Phố New York (one suspects not entirely voluntarily in Loki’s case) in search of their missing father.

The comics have sầu done this sort of story several times, with Odin/other Asgardians being exiled to Earth with no memory of their past or true life (và hey, you might rethành viên that happening in the original Thor movie as well) so it’s a well-established part of the lore. Why vì they need khổng lồ find Odin? Perhaps he’s the key lớn averting Ragnarok – or perhaps Ragnarok already happened và Thor, Loki, Odin và the rest of the Asgardian gods are on Earth in hiding và Thor & Loki have sầu to lớn awaken them in a manner similar to lớn the oft-overlooked Lost Gods storyline from the late ’90s.

Here’s a question, though: how in the hell does this plot fit in the same movie as that Thor/Hulk road trip we’ve sầu heard so much about? Maybe they’re not just looking on Earth for Odin?

Either way, the tone of this one scene fits well with the more comedic direction hinted at by the “What Thor Was Doing During Captain America: Civil War” short, so any concerns about the franchise after its sequel seem easy khổng lồ disthẻ. We have much more about Thor: Ragnarok right here.

Post-credits scene

While working in his metal worksiêu thị, Jonathan Pangborn – the formerly-paralyzed guy who pointed Strange at the Ancient One’s order – is approached by a hooded Mordo, last seen abandoning Strange and Wong after declaring they lost their way.

“Can I help you?” he asks, discreetly creeping towards a workbench & taking a crowbar in h&. “I’ve been away for many months now and I’ve had a revelation” says Morbởi. “The purpose of a sorcerer is lớn twist reality out of shape. Stealing power. Perverting nature. Like you.” Pangborn tries lớn fight hyên off but Morvì chưng attacks hyên, removing his magic and leaving hlặng paralysed once more.

As he lies on the ground, Pangborn asks Morbởi “Why are you doing this?” and Morvị replies “Because I see now what’s wrong with the world. Too many sorcerers.”

This scene – directed by Derrickson – makes explicit what Mordo’s exit earlier had only hinted at: he’s going lớn become an antagonist for Doctor Strange in the future, with his view that magic is being used too freely with no regard for the cost.

This isn’t quite the same as the version from the comics, where “Baron” Morvì is a disciple of Dormammu who trained with, then tried to lớn kill the Ancient One – but it also makes for a more interesting version. It’s virtually a given that if there’s a sequel we’ll see hyên again, especially since he was Doctor Strange’s number one villain in his earliest adventures. We wrote more about Baron Morbởi vì right here.
