Where To Watch The 'Doctor Strange' Post-Credits Scenes, Because The Movie Itself Is Not Enough
There are several things one can always count on when watching a Marvel movie. Fantastic action scenes, witty banter, an iconic hero, great supporting characters, and of course, those end credit scenes. Although Marvel didn't invent the end credits scene, they've certainly perfected it, and it's widely accepted that you don't get up to leave the theater after watching a Marvel movie until the ushers physically remove you. Marvel's newest movie, Doctor Strange, continues this tradition, but if you can't make it to the theater to watch it then you're probably wondering where to watch the Doctor Strange post-credits scene online.
Sorry, but you'll have to buy a ticket for this one. Like many Marvel movies, Doctor Strange has two post-credits scenes: One mid-credits scene that ties further into the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole, and one scene after the credits that's more focused just on the Sorcerer Supreme's franchise. But Marvel has not yet released either of them online, meaning the only way to watch them would be to view an illegal, bootleg version — not something I condone. However, if you're itching to watch some kind of Marvel post-credits scene, there are plenty of old ones that are online which are perfectly legal to watch, so have a look at some of the best below.
The Avenger Initiative
This is the one that started it all. When Nick Fury showed up at the conclusion of Iron Man, he effectively kicked off the unprecedented crossover event that became the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The end of The Avengers also functioned as the end of Marvel's "Phase One," and set up Thanos as the big bad of the franchise — someone whose plan fans won't fully see come to fruition until 2018's Infinity War .
The throwaway scene at the very end of The Avengers, this post-credits scene introduced the idea of both a "gag" scene as opposed to the normally serious scenes that teased future movies, as well as a second scene once the credits start rolling.
Out of all post-credits scene, this adorable and funny one from The Guardians of the Galaxy best captures the spirit of the film that preceded it.
A lot of people were mad that the Wasp, one of Marvel's greatest heroines, wasn't in Ant-Man, so the reveal that she'll be arriving in a future film was more than welcome.
It will be a while before you can watch the Doctor Strange post-credits scenes out of the theater, but the MCU has plenty online to keep you interested until then.
