Doctor Strange post-credit scenes
There are two post-credit scenes in Doctor Strange . The first one shows Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) meeting with Thor (Chris Hemsworth), and the second one shows Doctor Strange in his Sanctum Sanctorum meeting with The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton).
The Mid-Credits Scene
The first post-credit scene in Doctor Strange comes midway through the credits. In it, Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) pays a visit to The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) in the Astral Plane, where she is currently in exile. He asks her to teach him more about magic, but she refuses, saying that he is not ready. However, she does agree to help him if he ever needs her.
This scene was likely included to set up Doctor Strange 2, which is currently in development. The Ancient One is expected to play a major role in the sequel, so this scene allows her to make a brief appearance and establish her relationship with Dr. Strange before the events of the next movie.
The End-Credits Scene
Doctor Strange contains two post-credits scenes, the first of which ties directly into Thor: Ragnarok. The second is a more traditional scene that sets up a potential sequel.
[post-credit scene 1]
The first post-credit scene takes place on the planet Sakaar, which is featured prominently in Thor: Ragnarok. We see Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) talking to the Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum), who apparently has taken them prisoner. He tells them that they will be facing off against each other in a gladiatorial battle.
[post-credit scene 2]
The second post-credit scene shows Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) meeting with the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton). She tells him that he still has much to learn, but he insists that he is ready to face whatever comes his way. This sets up the possibility of a sequel, which has not been officially announced but is widely expected.
