The Best 'Doctor Strange' Memes & Jokes

Doctor Strange represents an important entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film not only introduces a new hero, it also brings in the concepts of magic and alternate dimensions to the MCU. It boasts a more diverse cast than its brethren, is more visually immersive than anything Marvel's ever done, and is radically different in tone than other Marvel movies. It's a serious and heavy movie... so of course people are mercilessly making fun of it on the internet. There are a number of Doctor Strange memes and jokes floating around the interwebs, and rounding up the best of them might require a magic spell or two.

From Stephen Strange's funky hand signals to Tilda Swinton's bald head to Strange's plea of "Teach me!" in the trailer, fans have found plenty about the movie to poke fun at before it even hits theaters. And given how the star of the movie is Benedict Cumberbatch, AKA the internet's boyfriend, that's not too much of a surprise. So before you become bogged down with trying to figure out how mystical beings and alternate realities fit in with the likes of Iron Man and Captain America, have a few laughs at the expense of Doctor Strange.

1. A Real Hero

This makes a great point — the Avengers just can't handle the threats Strange deals with.

2. It Can't Be Done

Mastering the Mystic Arts seems easy by comparison.

3. A Trend Continues

The most famous back in Hollywood.

4. Alternate Reality Problems

Those hand signals, though.

5. When The Ancient One Looks Familiar

Saitama to the rescue.

6. Calling It As It Is

Sometimes the meme doesn't even have to be made.

7. When It's Time To Rock

Honestly, Strange probably is into metal.

8. When You Take Away The Special Effects

Visually stunning, indeed.

9. When Professionals Get Involved

150 bucks seems like a bargain.

So feel free to make fun of Doctor Strange, because at the end of a day it is a movie about a magician who wears a cape and whose real name is Stephen Strange. You can't make this stuff up, folks.
