Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness took the MCU in a whole new direction, with psychedelic visuals, gnarly horror scenes and some unbelievable cameos.
In this sequel, Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) works against a friend-turned-foe to help protect the multiverse and faces repercussions for his own meddling along the way.
But does this latest Marvel flick have any additional bonus content after the film has finished? Here is your post-credits scene guide to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. You can also find out when we expect this film to release on
Disney+, VOD and DVD/Blu-ray.
Does Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness have a post-credits scene?
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has two post-credits scenes. One occurs after the first set of animated credits, whilst the other takes place after all the credits have finished.
Just like with other Marvel films, stick around in the cinema until the very end if you want to watch them.
If you want to see what the post-credits scenes entail, then keep on reading – and consider this your official spoiler warning.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness post-credits scenes explained
The first post-credits scene shows Stephen leisurely walking through New York, seemingly now at piece with his third eye after being corrupted by the Darkhold. His attention is then brought to a sorcerer in a purple costume, played by Charlize Theron.
This sorceress opens a portal to the Dark Dimension, the world seen in the original 2016 Doctor Strange film that housed Dormammu. She asks him, “You created an incursion and we’re gonna fix it… unless you’re afraid?”
Doctor Strange opens his third eye, and replies: “Not in the least.”
This mysterious woman is confirmed in the credits to be Clea. In the comics, Clea is the niece of Dormammu, and at one point the ruler of the Dark Dimension. She is also romantically involved with Stephen, and eventually becomes his wife.
This makes sense, considering that the film closed the chapter of Stephen and Christine’s (Rachel McAdams) relationship. It also sets up for the next Doctor Strange film, which was teased at the end of the credits with ‘Doctor Strange will return’.
The final post-credits scene is much less important, but a good laugh, nonetheless. Bruce Campbell is famous for his cameos in Sam Raimi films, and this scene picks up with the Pizza Poppa street vendor still hitting himself after Strange put him under a spell to distract him earlier in the film.
He exclaims to the camera that film is over, and tells the audience to go home, before the screen cuts to black.
