TheWrap shared details on what's in the two scenes, and they include spoilers not only for "Doctor Strange," but a bit for "Thor: Ragnarok," and potentially for a "Doctor Strange" sequel.
The first scene arrives mid-credits, and features Thor (Chris Hemsworth) being Thor -- chugging a beer stein that keeps refilling itself. (#goals)
Thor isn't alone in the scene, though; he's sharing a drink with Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), who tells Thor he is keeping a watch list of beings from other realms who might be a threat to this world. Strange asks Thor why his brother Loki is in New York, and Thor says the bros are trying to find their father Odin to bring him back to Asgard. Strange gets Thor to confirm that, if they find Odin, they will all head back to Asgard "promptly."
We'll see. "Thor: Ragnarok" arrives in theaters November 3, 2017.
The second scene doesn't appear to directly connect to other upcoming MCU films -- like "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" or "Spider-Man: Homecoming." Instead, it's another scene with Chiwetel Ejiofor's "Doctor Strange" character, Baron Mordo, who has a bit of a falling out with Doctor Strange in the film, and goes to find Jonathan Pangborn (Benjamin Bratt), a paraplegic who learned how to heal himself, in his workshop.
Here's how TheWrap describes the scene:
"Pangborn evidently feels that something is off and grabs a weapon. Mordo incapacitates him, sending him back to his former, paraplegic state. Near the end of the scene, Mordo tells Pangborn that he has figured out what's wrong with the world: 'There are too many sorcerers.' That suggests Mordo could emerge as a primary villain in a sequel."
"Doctor Strange" had previously been described as something of an origin story for Baron Mordo, as well as the titular doctor. As director Scott Derrickson told Screen Rant:
"Mordo, in the comic books... was just really arch. And he's in the origin issue and even in reading through – and I've read the entire body of Doctor Strange now – it was a difficult character, very difficult character to adapt. Because of the very basic archness that he plays all the way through there. So we wanted to keep what were the interesting aspects of him... but with the way that [Mordo] needs to be a presence in the universe of Doctor Strange and, god willing, in sequels, I felt that we had to start by establishing who he was before he got into that arch villainy in the comics. And that's a lot of what we're doing in this movie... we're sort of building a foundational understanding of who he was before the guy that you met in that comic so that that turn isn't an arch turn."
"Doctor Strange" opens Friday, November 4.
