Doctor Strange is Marvel’s latest superhero. Like with all Marvel movies, he has his own supply of Easter eggs.
Doctor Strange took a different spin from Marvel‘s usual robot exploding justice. Instead, we’re treated to a psychedelic mushroom trip of magic and astral projection. If you were too busy trying to inception your way out of the movie’s visuals. You were liable to miss these eggs.
(Warning: Spoilers for Doctor Strange.)
Tools Of The Trade
Another item, the Wand of Watoomb, is a powerful artifact first revealed in a team-up between Strange and his unlikely pal, Spider-Man. It is seen later in the film, being used by Wong during the battle in Hong Kong.
Stan Lee Cameo
Of course, you caught the Stan Lee cameo. I mean that’s half the reason we watch Marvel movies. But did you spot what he was reading? It was a copy of Aldous Huxley‘s The Doors of Perception. A 1954 essay about the writer’s experiences tripping on mescaline. No doubt the counterculture icon Huxley was an inspiration for Lee when he created the equally trippy Doctor Strange back in 1963.
Benedict Cumberbatch Played Two Roles
You might have wondered why big bad Dormammu‘s name didn’t appear in the credits. That’s because he was also played by Cumberbatch. Specifically, he provided the motion capture for the demonic sorcerer’s giant head. While an unknown British actor voiced him.
