After the fancy animated credits finish, the screen cuts to black.
“I don’t drink tea,” Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is heard saying over the black screen. The image kicks back in, tight on Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) sat down in his New York sanctum. “You don’t drink tea?” the sorcerer asks in reply.
Thor is shown sitting with a tea cup in hand opposite Strange. His hand drifts out of shot, and then reenters with a large tankard of beer. Magic is great. The God of Thunder takes a sip in approval.
Strange continues to speak about how he’s keeping track of beings from other dimensions entering our reality, especially the dangerous ones. So why did Thor bring Loki to New York?
Thor’s beer is already nearly empty. He answers that they’re on Earth looking for their father.
If Thor and Loki find Odin, Strange asks, would they all then return to Asgard?
Yes, Thor replies.
Strange stands up, promising to help Thor and Loki locate their father. And the screen cuts to black.
So we can probably add Doctor Strange’s name to Thor: Ragnarok, supporting the official photo of Thor holding a card with Stephen’s New York address on released a few months back.
