Doctor Strange Reference Spotted In Thor?

Doctor Strange Reference Spotted In <i>Thor</i>?

Spoiler Warning: from a snapshot at a theater screening of Marvel's much-anticipated THOR film, a mystical reference to Doctor Strange's amulet has been spotted. Check it out!



With an interweaving cinematic universe paving the way for easter eggs, cameos & references to other characters in solo-films, Marvel Studios' latest big-screen adaptation, Kenneth Branagh's Thor, is no exception. I was recently contacted via email with an interesting reference from the film, supposedly captured at a screening from a scene in Odin's Vault, featured is a nod to Marvel's Sorcerer Supreme Doctor Strange.



The Eye of Agamotto, the name commonly given to Doctor Strange's amulet. Via Marvel Wiki, It was placed into the care of Eternity until a worthy mage could successfully reach him. Doctor Strange did so, and was given the Eye to battle Dormammu.

Also, it's well known that Marvel Studios have been keen on adapting Doctor Stephen Strange to the big-screen, essentially with reports mid-last year of Conan scribes Thomas Donnelly & Joshua Oppenheime coming on board. And with this appearance of the Eye of Agamotto in Thor, it could mean it's coming closer to actuality. what do you think?

If you've yet to see the film, or you blinked and missed it, be sure to keep an eye open (corny joke, I know).


Thor spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth. And Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba, Ray Stevenson, Stellan Skarsgård and Tom Hiddleston, the film releases May 6!
