Doctor Strange post-credit scenes
Doctor Strange has two post-credit scenes. One features Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) recruiting The Ancient One’s former student, Karl Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor), to help him in his fight against evil. The other scene takes place in New York City, where we see Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum being rebuilt.
Doctor Strange post-credit scene one
The first post-credit scene in Doctor Strange is a brief one, and sees the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) visit Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in Asgard. The two discuss Strange, with the Ancient One telling Thor that he needs to meet the Sorcerer Supreme if he wants to stop Ragnarok (the Norse apocalypse).
The second post-credit scene is a little more substantial, and sees Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) visit Pangborn (Benjamin Bratt), the man we saw earlier in the film who was able to walk again thanks to strange’s powers. Mordo has now decided that there are too many sorcerers in the world, and proceeds to kill Pangborn, draining him of his magic.

In the second post-credit scene, we see Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) sitting in a park with a young boy, asking to borrow his apple. He takes a bite, then hands the apple back, but as he does so, he takes the boy’s chi energy, leaving him crumpled on the ground. Mordo looks sad as he does it, but he says that there are “too many sorcerers” in the world and that it’s time to “balance things out.”
How many post-credit scenes are in Doctor Strange?
There are two post-credit scenes in Doctor Strange. The first scene shows Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) meeting with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and setting up a meeting with Odin (Anthony Hopkins). The second scene is a brief exchange between Strange and Jonathan Pangborn (Benjamin Bratt), who tells Strange that he is “the Sorcerer Supreme now.”
Post-credit scene one
The first post-credit scene takes place in Hong Kong, where The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) proves to be alive and well after her battle with Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen) and company. She’s talking to someone off-screen, telling them that “it’s not about you,” before the camera pans over to reveal none other than Baron Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor).
“Master, I’ve seen things,” Mordo says. “Incredible things. But this… this is the end. The end of all things.”
The scene then jumps to New York City, where Strange is walking through a park. He comes across a man who’s about to get mugged by some thugs, but Strange uses his magic to stop time and defeat the criminals. He then rewinds time so that the man never gets mugged in the first place.
“Strange,” the man says, clearly confused by what just happened.
Post-credit scene two
At the very end of the credits, there is a post-credit scene where Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) meets Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Thor has come to ask Strange for help finding his missing father Odin (Anthony Hopkins). Strange tells him that he can’t help because he is busy protecting Earth from possible threats. However, he does give Thor a clue as to where Odin might be. The scene ends with Thor walking off into the distance.
