How ‘Doctor Strange’ Connects To The MCU

Doctor Strange

We should all know by now that Marvel are planning towards a bigger picture with each release in their Cinematic Universe. These stories are all building up a story that involves Thanos the Mad Titan and the Infinity Gauntlet. Said Gauntlet requires a collection of Infinity Stones, and they’ve popped up in many movies.

One of these movies is Doctor Strange, Marvel’s latest hit movie (which is doing pretty damn well in the box office already). While Doctor Strange is very, very different from the movies before it, it’s still very relevant to this overarching narrative thanks to the Time stone. Stephen Strange wields the Eye of Agamotto, and that’s where the stone resides.

Here’s what director Scott Derrickson told CinemaBlend about the inclusion of the stone:

Surprisingly, it was something that just evolved organically. The Eye [of Agamotto] in the comics is too powerful! The Eye is a Deux Ex Machina device — it doesn’t matter how bad a situation Doctor Strange is in, it’s like, ‘Wait! The Eye of Agamotto! Let me take the Earth to the other side of the solar system!’ It could do anything at any time. So we ended up working into the idea that it was used for time manipulation, and that just organically led us to, ‘Well, why don’t we put the Time Stone in it?’ And it worked!

Doctor Strange is out in theaters now!

    It’s easy to know how it connects with the MCU… all of them succs xDxD

    • Justin Jules

      Are you, Maxi and Sammy auditioning for a new three stoooges movie? I think you were born for the Moe role.

      • Napi

        It’s adorable how you plea for attention hahahaha

      • Axxell

        Obviously he’s the same as Sammy…didn’t take long for him to stop pretending he was somebody else…

        • Napi

          LEAAAAVE Allexxa

          • Axxell

            You fail…again, b¡tch!

          • Napi

            Running out of imagination Allexxa? Soon you will commentting “NO”

          • Axxell

            …From the guy who can’t stop saying “leave” like a retärd for 3 straight weeks…

          • Napi

            And FROM the GUY who keeps answering every comment xDxD You can’t win Allexxa deal with it hahahah YOU CANT EVEN WIN IN MINECRAFT! HAHAHAHAHAH remember to close the door when you LEAVE stupid @asshole!!

          • Axxell

            LOL…When did I ever say I played Minecraft?

            Hahahaa! What you don’t realize is that as long as I’m here, you’ve lost! You keep asking me to leave, but you’ve failed for 3 weeks straight! Face it loser, there’s no scenario where I leave and you win…You just can’t.

          • Napi

            You never said you do not play Minecraft, and by your way of thinking it is a FACT that you play that game and you lost there just like you lost in real life against me. And Allexxa… every time you mention the matter of we’ve been here you make it sound that you are fed up and you really want to LEAVE… so LEAVE if you are jaded 😉

          • Axxell

            By actually ASKING me to leave, you clearly demonstrate you don’t want to be in my presence. And you know for a fact that I won’t leave.

            So if you’re so tired of me, why are you wasting time and don’t leave yourself?

          • Napi

            LET’S SEE IF ALLEXXA CAN GET IT…
            The first time I told you to LEAVE, it was because your comments were dümb and full of hate, they do not contribute anything. Then you started to give out some boos with your calked Pinkman pose saying decisevly “NO mama please, I won’t LEAVE”. I found it HILARIOUS, so I decided to tease you to see how long can we get, and BELIEVE ME, I will continue for months, even years. So… you know what is coming…. LLLLLLLLLLLLLEAVEEEEEE xDxD HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA

          • Axxell

            You’re the definition of hateful, vacuous comments…the only reason you’re doing this is because I say the truth. You don’t like the truth, so you’ll do anything to distract the conversation away from it, including stalking me everywhere and trying (and failing) to intimidate me and make it look like you won the argument simply by means of being the last to comment, even if the last comment is nothing but a puerile, childish taunt from preschool….

            So keep begging me to leave…you know what’s coming after that?

            No, b¡tch…I’m not leaving. I win.

          • Napi

            The only truth here is that your participation in this site is useless, and you need to LEAVE. It’s hard, I know, nobody likes at home nor school, not even Minecraft, and total stranger comes up to your favorite website and tells you to LEAVE…. gosh… that stings :/

          • Axxell

            That’s rich…All you’ve done here is to create an account to come and stalk me. Not a single on topic argument even attempting to make a substantial point.

          • Napi

            The same for you boy, the same for you. Only trying to “bash” DC every time if possible. That’s your idea of “rich topic arguement”? LOL!
            And btw… you are the one stalking me! HAHAHAHAHA xDxD

            LEAVE You stupid dumbsh¡t godd@mn motherfacker!

          • Axxell

            Says the guy whose first comment on a Doctor Strange article was to say it “succs”…

          • Napi

            I’m only teasing low lifes like yourself, you already know that. I told before I don’t really give a sh¡t about which studio is better, but I like to provoke those of your kind… the disgusting kind xDxD LEAVE ALREADY!

          • Axxell

            C’mon…If you didn’t really care you wouldn’t really be trying so hard…I guess you really think you can fool people into thinking you’re not as pathetic as you are…

          • Napi

            Allexx, pay attention, PLEASE. I’m only teasing true pathetic persons like yourself that need to get some value in it’s life with childish stuff like getting the last comment on an internet forum. It is funny but sad. Make me cringe sometimes xDxD

            LEAVE sad lil thing

          • Axxell

            If you aren’t that pathetic, then stop commenting. Simple.

          • Napi

            Hahahahaha someone is jaaadeeed xDxD It is Allexx? Show us my “cool” and “hip” friend how to not be pathtic, set the example! I guess not you are not “that mature” HAHAHAHAHAHAHHA LEAVE

          • Axxell

            See? You can’t help being the “pathetic person” who “need to get some value in it’s life with childish stuff like getting the last comment on an internet forum”…I do agree, you’re pretty pathetic by your own (and everyone’s) standards…

          • Napi

            HAHAHAHAHA blah blah blah Allexxa. Keep booing, the last comment wont be yours xDxD I love how ratty you can become for that, rrrrat kid. LEAVE <—– THE BURN!

          • Axxell

            Simple thoughts don’t require anything more than simple answers.

          • Napi

            We already know that you can only come up with simple thoughts. xD LEAVE Minecraft

          • Axxell

            Says the guy who can’t quote a simple box office amount…

    The obvious answer is, it’s in the MCU. Then of course there is the at least 4 MCU references in the movie.
