Several weeks ago, while Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth, and Anthony Hopkins were filming scenes in public, director Taika Waititi posted a behind-the-scenes photo from Thor: Ragnarok of Loki and Thor searching through the streets of New York City, with Thor holding up a card that had the address of none other than Stephen Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum. Suffice it to say, fans were excited by the reveal, which seemed to tease the inclusion of Doctor Strange in Ragnarok.
Of course, no official confirmation of Strange’s role in the film has arrived (as it probably should be), and while this could have just stayed a fun possibility known well amongst all of you die hard Marvel fans out there, someone decided to put Waititi on the spot and straight up ask him if Strange is going to be in the film. Because of course they did.
Speaking with Digital Spy, Waititi said the following when asked if that address was more than just an Easter egg:
“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.”
Then, here’s what he said when they asked him again if Strange was going to cameo in the film:
“Might be something like that. Might be a little tease. Or maybe a tease just for people who wanted to zoom into that photo.”
Now, currently the speculation from fans is pointing towards Thor seeking out the Sorcerer Supreme for either some kind of magical help during Ragnarok, or to help him locate his exiled/missing father in Odin (Hopkins), who was spotted on set wearing the guise of an everyday New York City bum. At this point though, we really don’t know anything for sure about Ragnarok, and considering how exciting of a film it’s turning out to be, I’m hoping it stays that way.
Thor: Ragnarok is set to hit theatres on November 3rd, 2017.
