We all know that Doctor Strange is packed with action, but how many end credit scenes are there? We break it down for you!

Since the days of comic book movies like Batman Returns and X-Men, end-of-credits scenes have become pretty standard. They often offer a tease for what’s to come in the next installment of a franchise, or at the very least, something fun for fans to enjoy after sitting through the credits. Doctor Strange is the latest superhero movie to hit theaters, and it has not one but two end-credit scenes. The first is a brief scene that sets up Thor: Ragnarok, while the second is a longer sequence that offers a glimpse of what Doctor Strange 2 might be about.
What is an End Credit Scene?
An end credit scene is a scene that appears after the credits of a movie. End credit scenes are sometimes used to set up the next movie in a franchise, to tease an upcoming movie, or simply to reward diehard fans who stick around through the credits. In some cases, an end credit scene can be used to resolve a plotline from the movie that just ended.
Doctor Strange End Credit Scenes
Doctor Strange has not one, not two, but THREE end credit scenes! One mid-credits scene and two post-credits scenes. What do these scenes mean for the future of the MCU? Let’s break it down.
The first scene shows Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in a meeting with other Asgardians discussing the recent happenings. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) walks in and tells Loki that they need to find Odin (Anthony Hopkins).
The second scene is a post-credits scene where Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) is talking to someone off-screen. He says, “There was an ancient prophecy, the Time Stone would reveal the end of all things.” The person asks if that means he saw the future, and Doctor Strange replies, “No, I saw all possible futures.”
As the credits start to roll, we see Doctor Strange in his Sanctum Santorum in New York City, preparing to meditate. However, he is suddenly interrupted by Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor), who has come to Strange’s home to take away all the powerful magical artifacts that he has collected. Mordo believes that there are too many sorcerers in the world and that they are hoarding too much power.
Mordo makes off with several of Strange’s most powerful artifacts, including the Book of Cagliostro and the Eye of Agamotto (which contains an Infinity Stone). We also see Mordo taking away a wand from one of Strange’s students, making it clear that Mordo is going to be a major antagonist in future Doctor Strange movies.
The final scene shows someone rolling a strange, black liquid onto their hands. We then see that this person is Baron Mordo and he says, “There are too many sorcerers.” This indicates that Mordo is going to be working on some sort of evil plan in the future and he will likely be the main villain inDoctor Strange 2.
Why are End Credit Scenes Important?
End credit scenes are fun little Easter eggs that producers include in their movies to tease at future sequels or give a glimpse into what the characters are up to after the events of the film. They’re not required, but many big-budget films choose to include them. For example, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is infamous for its end credit scenes, which often feature teasers for upcoming films in the franchise.
Doctor Strange is no exception. The film includes two end credit scenes, one mid-credits and one post-credits. The mid-credits scene shows Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) meeting with Thor (Chris Hemsworth), who has come to ask for his help in finding their missing father Odin (Anthony Hopkins). The scene is a fun little tease for Thor: Ragnarok, which hits theaters in November 2017.
The post-credits scene is a bit more mysterious. It shows Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) taking away the power of a fellow sorcerer who he believes is abusing his magic. He tells the sorcerer that “it’s time we talked about the sorcerers.” This could be setting up Mordo as a villain in future Doctor Strange sequels, or it could be leading into another Marvel franchise entirely (there are rumors that Mordo may play a role in Disney’s upcoming live action adaptation of Mulan).
So why are end credit scenes so important? For one, they’re a great way to keep audiences engaged during the credits, which can often be quite long and boring. But more importantly, they’re a great marketing tool. By including scenes that tease at future movies or spin-offs, producers can get audiences excited about what’s to come and ensure that they’ll be back for more.
In conclusion, there are two end credit scenes in Doctor Strange. One is a mid-credits scene and one is a post-credits scene. If you stay until the very end, you will see both of these scenes.
