The past few months saw a lot of speculations for Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Doctor Strange And Thor Ragnarok. There had been rumors of the Sorcerer Supreme being featured in Ragnarok after set pictures were taken of Chris Hemsworth/Thor holding a card that clearly showed the New York address of Doctor Strange. Director Taika Waititi had also teased fans of the possibilities but there was no confirmation.
Now that Doctor Strange has been released in certain parts of the world, there is definite confirmation of a connection between the film and Thor Ragnarok. Marvel has made great use of the post-credit scenes in its films. It was from post-credit scenes that we learned about the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Thanos. Doctor Strange released a can’t be missed post-credit scene that will definitely get you excited for Ragnarok.
Mid-Credit Scene In Doctor Strange
Thor visits Doctor Strange in his Sanctum Sanctorum. Thor says “So Earth has wizards now?” The Doctor offers Thor some tea, which he transforms into an automatic refilling glass of beer.
“I keep a watch list of individuals and beings from other realms that may be a threat to this world. Your adopted brother Loki is one of those beings. So, why to bring him here to New York?”
Thor responds that “it’s a bit of a long story. Family drama. We’re looking for my father.”
Strange then asks if the Asgardians would leave earth to return back to their home if Odin is found. To which Thor replies “Oh yes. Promptly” Then the Doctor offers to help.
Odin has been missing since we last saw him in Thor: The Dark World which was also Loki’s doing. The comics have often depicted Asgardians being exiled to Earth with no memory of their past life. How would this plot point fit into the Thor/Hulk dynamic is still a mystery.
