Okay, kids, follow me on a journey. A journey which starts with a single tweet about Thor: Ragnarok, goes on to get some verification by a retweet, and then gets context from yet another tweet. Eventually, everything leads to Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum in New York.

Daley Pearson posted three set photos from Thor: Ragnarok’s Australian set:

One of those photos is of Thor holding a business card. When you see the photo full-sized, you can just about make out what’s written on it:

And it does appear to be “177A Bleecker St.” which is the comic book-accurate address for Doctor Strange.

There’s more circumstantial evidence supporting the connection between the third Thor movie and Doctor Strange. The photos were retweeted by Taika Waititi, director of Thor: Ragnarok, giving them a semi-official seal of approval. Then there’s the fact that we know that the set the cast is on is standing in for New York.

As a New Yorker, I always pick up Lady Liberty News over that garbage Big News, by the way. The real question we have now is if this means Thor and Loki could be dropping by the Sanctum Sanctorum. Just because I have a hankering to see if Benedict Cumberbatch can keep his... we’ll call it “American”... accent in the face of Hiddleston getting to use his normal one.

His hair is back to being long — maybe this is how the film ends. Asgard is destroyed (or Thor and Loki are banished) and they end up slumming it on Earth kind of like Crowley and Aziraphale. Possibly de-powered? That could be why someone points him in the direction of Strange.
