‘DOCTOR STRANGE’ Writer Reveals The Truth Behind Stephen Strange’s Bargain With Dormammu

No comments

The third act of 2016s Doctor Strange will go down as one of the most original in recent memory. Instead of fighting a faceless army while a blue beam threatens to destroy the planet, Stephen Strange defeated Dormammu by capturing him in a time loop. Many wondered how long the two were locked in battle and we now have our answer.

A writer of the film, C. Robert Cargill, took to Twitter to reveal that Strange and Dormammu weren’t stuck in the loop for mere minutes but likely much longer:

Many people had issues with the fact that Strange was able to master some of his magical abilities without much practice. That led into his cameo in Thor: Ragnarok where Strange appeared as the Sorcerer Supreme many know him as in the comics. Now knowing that Strange was stuck in the loop for an extended period of time, many fans can rest easy without any notions of continuity errors.


Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange is set to next appear in this month’s Avengers: Infinity War where he will play a crucial role. There has been no official announcement about a Doctor Strange sequel, although, details have emerged regarding the direction of the film if it happens.
