[SPOILERS for Doctor Strange ahead.]
Marvel Studios’ output has been dominant at the box office for so long now, it’s almost hard to remember a time when the latest MCU release wasn’t the talk of pop culture. Beginning with the smash success of 2008’s debut Iron Man film, the MCU has taken the world by storm, with its 13 previously released films having hauled in over $4 billion at worldwide theaters. This trend seems likely to continue with next month’s 14th installment Doctor Strange, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the titular Sorcerer Supreme.
Of course, since the moment Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury spoke to Tony Stark about the then-fledgling Avengers initiative at the end of Iron Man, one of the most well-known aspects of the MCU has been each movie’s post-credits scenes. Often containing teases of what’s to come in upcoming Marvel big-screen blockbusters, these sequences effectively guarantee that nobody in the theater on opening day is standing up to leave until the end credits have finished completely rolling.
With that in mind, the details of Doctor Strange’s post-credits scenes have made their way online early…
Update: Scene descriptions removed at request of Disney so for now, here’s the official synopsis:
From Marvel Studios comes “Doctor Strange,” the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place—a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long Strange—armed with newly acquired magical powers—is forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.
“Doctor Strange” stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt and Scott Adkins, with Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton.
