How Many End Credit Scenes are in Dr Strange?
A lot of people are wondering how many end credit scenes are in Dr Strange, and the answer is two. The first one is a scene with Dr Strange and Baron Mordo, and the second one is a post-credits scene with Thor.
What Happens in the End Credit Scenes?
Dr. Strange features two post-credits scenes. The first one shows Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) meeting with Thor (Chris Hemsworth), who has come to ask Strange for help finding his missing father Odin (Anthony Hopkins). Strange agrees to help, and the scene ends with a joke about Thor’s hammer Mjolnir.
The second post-credits scene is a brief one that shows Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) stealing a mysterious item from the Sanctum Sanctorum. He says that he’s going to start “taking down” all sorcerers, starting with those who abuse their power like Doctor Strange does.
What is the Significance of the End Credit Scenes?
End credit scenes are a Marvel Studios tradition. They began with the very first Iron Man movie in 2008 and have continued through all of the MCU movies released since then.
The end credit scenes in Doctor Strange are significant because they set up future plotlines for both Doctor Strange 2 and Infinity War. The first scene shows Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) discussing his views on magic with another sorcerer. Mordo expresses his belief that there are too many sorcerers in the world and that they are misusing their power. He vows to “correct” this problem, hinting at his eventual turn to villainy.
The second scene takes place in Tibet, where the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) is teaching Doctor Strange the ancient art of astral projection. She tells him that he must never use this power for personal gain, but only for the good of others. This foreshadows Doctor Strange’s eventual use of astral projection to defeat Dormammu in the climax of the film.
