Taika Waititi Hints At A Possible ‘Doctor Strange’ Easter Egg

Thor Ragnarok 2

Marvel is known for having easter eggs throughout their cinematic universe, so it comes as no surprise that when set photos from Thor: Ragnarok surfaced online, fans were already on the hunt for hints. One of the images showed Thor (Chris Hemsworth) holding a card which had the address of Doctor Strange’s Greenwich Village home, which is also known as, his ‘Sanctum Sanctorum.’

During a recent interview, Ragnarok director Taika Waititi talked about the set photo and left fans asking more questions.

 

“Ohhh I don’t know. I am not sure if… I don’t know actually. I can’t comment on it. It may have just been something for the fans.”

When asked about a possible cameo from Doctor Strange himself, Waititi kept the option open but wouldn’t commit to a firm answer.

“Might be something like that. Might be a little tease. Or maybe a tease just for people who wanted to zoom into that photo.”

Starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Karl Urban as Skurge,Thor: Ragnarok opens in theaters on November 3, 2017.

Doctor Strange will be arriving in theaters on November 4, 2016 and stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton, Benedict Wong, Amy Landecker and Scott Adkins.

    See, this is how they paint themselves into a corner. If Marvel is truly trying to establish magic in the MCU, then they should keep DS as far from Thor as possible, at least for the time being.

    It was Thor that established the “no magic” concept early on in the MCU. I’d heard the director of DS say that “it’s some fancy science”, when he was asked about this.

    So now, one franchise will have to suffer as a result; either magic does exist, and Thor looks like he doesn’t have a clue what he’s talking about (when has he ever?), or Thor’s right, and what DS does is not true magic, which further hinders the MCU even more.

    Not sure then, how they’ll justify their 3rd-rate Ghost Rider on AoShit, then, since he’s supposed to be Supernatural.

    Ahh, Marvel. The kings of back-peddling.

    • Danny Kay

      Didn’t he say in the first Thor film that he “comes from a place where science and magic is the same”?

      • SAMURAI36

        Not sure why you put that in quotes, because that’s a grossly paraphrased statement.

        He actually said that what people on earth call magic, is actually just very advanced science.

        • Danny Kay

          Apologies, I have edited the comment.

          this is the quote from Thor – “Your Ancestors Called it Magic, but You Call it Science. I Come From a Land Where They Are One and the Same.”

          • SAMURAI36

            Okay, but it’s the same difference. It doesn’t negate the fact that what DS will be doing is just science. Opening portals to other worlds does not necessitate magic, in the strictest sense.

            more and more asinine commentary from Sammy

    • Thanostic

      I don’t see how it’s back-pedaling – just because Thor comes from a more advanced realm/world than ours doesn’t make him omniscient. There are whole swaths of the galaxy that Thor has no idea even exist. There may well be something akin to “genuine” magic that he simply isn’t aware of. I think Thor was just referring to the general idea that what “primitive” people think of as magic is generally just some aspect of science that they don’t yet understand.

      • SAMURAI36

        Really? Because he sure seemed to have that whole “9 realms” thing mapped out pretty well. These are realms, mind you, not galaxies, solar systems, or the like. The foremost former encompasses all the latter.

        But again, that’s not what the director stated. When pressed about the Thor faux pas, he said that what DS does is “fancy science”.

        • Thanostic

          Thor definitely doesn’t have all the answers. Loki says as much in Avengers, saying “I’ve seen worlds you’ve never known about.” I know you like to find every flaw in MCU movies you can, but this seems like much ado about nothing.
