Mister Doctor Strange will join Thor in his next movie, Thor: Ragnarok. This news comes after several months of rumors that the mystical hero would appear in some capacity in the Marvel sequel. Speculation was fueled by not-so-subtle teasing by the studio and the mighty Thor’s inclusion in Doctor Strange’s mid-credit scene.
Disney’s official fan website D23 revealed the medically-inclined sorcerer’s inclusion in this year’s film in a somewhat offhand synopsis:
“Thor: Ragnarok in November brings together Thor, the Hulk, and Doctor Strange to face off against intergalactic baddies both familiar and new.”
This revelation isn’t exactly surprising to eagle-eyed fans. A few months ago, various photos taken on the set of the Thor threequel hinted at the Asgardian’s search for a certain Doctor. I’ll give you a hint: It’s not Dr. Phil.
