Doctor Strange

Kaecilius and the zealots have killed the sorcerers at the Hong Kong sanctum and destroyed its beacon; with the beacons at London and New York already broken, Earth has no protection against the Dark Dimension, leaving Dormammu free to invade.

Strange and Mordo arrive and witness the destruction before Strange uses the Eye of Agamotto to rewind time. The pair resurrect Wong, but Kaecilius halts the spell right before the beacon is rebuilt, freezing the group in time.

As Kaecilius describes the Dark Dimension as a reality beyond time, Strange enters and traps himself and Dormammu a time loop; Strange is repeatedly killed, but time resets to the moment Strange arrives. As time does not exist in the Dark Dimension, Dormammu has no control over it. His will is eventually broken and lets Stephen name his terms for the end of the time loop; to leave Earth alone, never return, and to take Kaecilius and the zealots with him.

Time begins to flow in Hong Kong as the rogue sorcerers are dragged into the Dark Dimension. Though the day has been saved, Mordo is appalled by Strange using the reality-bending time magic and abandons the sorcerers. Strange and Wong return to Kamar-Taj, where it is revealed the Eye of Agamotto's time controlling nature is due to the fact it contains an Infinity Stone. Strange is appointed master of the New York sanctum as he accepts his role in the mystic arts.

In a scene set during the credits, Thor visits Strange and asks for his help in finding Odin; this hints at the events in Thor: Ragnarok. In a scene set after the credits, Mordo tracks down Pangborn and absorbs his magic, reverting Pangborn to a quadriplegic state.

Doctor Strange mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: After Doctor Strange experiments with the magical doorway in the Sanctum Sanctorum, he leaves it on a desert view and we cut to a shot panning across all the artifacts. At the very start of the shot on the right hand side of the screen is a crewmember standing in the shadows looking bored. Really blatant if you turn up the brightness, but easy enough to spot if you know what you're looking at. (00:56:00)

Question: When Dr. Strange gets into the accident near the beginning of the film, why didn't his car's airbag deploy? Wouldn't such an expensive car have all kinds of standard safety features?


Chosen answer: The airbag did deploy. However, the deployment occurred when the car first crashed and we see the accident from the outside, so we can't see it. Once we get a shot of the interior, you can see the airbag is sticking out from the steering wheel, but (unlike what some movies would show you) airbags deflate very rapidly after a crash, so you may have missed it.

But if the airbags did deploy, then why did he have such major injuries? Wouldn't the airbags have made what happened to his hands less severe?

I don't think so. I watched it again recently and I think I saw the car's speedometer crush his hands while they were still on the steering wheel, while the airbag deploys from the centre of the steering wheel, nowhere near his hands.

Often in real life, when air bags deploy from the steering wheel, they force the hands off the steering wheel resulting in the hands hitting the windshield. Damage to hands, wrists, and lower arms are common.
