Doctor Strange’s Post-Credits Scenes
Doctor Strange has two post-credits scenes. The first one is a short scene with Thor and Doctor Strange talking about the Infinity Stones. The second post-credits scene is a longer scene that teases the next Avengers movie.
The First Post-Credits Scene
The first post-credits scene in Doctor Strange takes place in Hong Kong, where the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) is teaching some students. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) shows up and asks her to teach him, but she refuses. He then proceeds to kidnapped her and forces her to train him. However, the training does not go as planned, and the two quickly develop a rivalry. Eventually, the Ancient One relents and accepts Strange as her apprentice.
The second post-credits scene is set in New York City, where Karl Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) has taken it upon himself to eliminate all magic users who abuse their power. He confronts Jonathan Pangborn (Benjamin Bratt), a former patient of Strange’s who can now walk thanks to magic. Mordo stealing Pangborn’s power, leaving him paralyzed once again.
The Second Post-Credits Scene
The second post-credit scene takes place in an astral projection of Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum. Wong is seen meditating while Doctor Strange is talking to someone off-screen. He then says that they need to talk about “the Time Stone” as the scene fades to black.
This scene is a set up for Infinity War, as it’s revealed that Doctor Strange gave Thanos the Time Stone in order to save Tony Stark’s life.
What do the Post-Credits Scenes Mean for the Future of the MCU?
At the end of Doctor Strange, there are two post-credits scenes. One is a set-up for Thor: Ragnarok, and one is a set-up for Avengers: Infinity War.
In the Thor: Ragnarok scene, we see Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) on a spaceship, with Loki holding the Tesseract. Loki says that they are going to find their father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins), and Thor replies that they are not going to find him, because he is dead.
In the Avengers: Infinity War scene, we see Thanos (Josh Brolin) sitting in a chair on a desolate world. He has two Infinity Stones in his hand, and he says that he will gladly sacrifice everything to get the other four Stones.
In conclusion, there are a total of four credit scenes in Doctor Strange. Two of these scenes occur during the credits, while the other two occur after the credits have finished rolling. While some fans may be disappointed that there aren’t more credit scenes, it’s worth noting that four is actually the most for any Marvel movie thus far.
