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!

          • Axxell

            You fail…again, b¡tch!

          • Napi

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

          • Axxell

          • 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

          • Napi

            LEAVE btw xDxD

          • Axxell

            See?

          • Napi

            No, YOU see?

          • Napi

            LEAVE anyways xDxD

          • Axxell

            Nope.

          • Napi

            See? I told you will be out of imagination (just like Marvel) and you will start to commenting, “NO” NOPE” “NAH” etc. LEAVE Allexxa seriously, stop embarassing yourself

          • 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

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