Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will soon begin the next chapter of the MCU, opening an entirely new realm of possibilities as it builds off of what Loki and Spider-Man: No Way Home established before it. As fans prepare to enjoy the blockbuster experience, a few lucky audiences have begun to see the film several days early as a part of the ongoing press tour, leading to several details spilling online. 

With audiences preparing themselves for all the promised cameos and surprises to come with Multiverse of Madness, some are beginning to wonder how the film will set up the future. After all, in the modern age of the MCU, fans are constantly thinking about how the latest project will tease the films and series to come.

Across the fourteen years of the MCU so far, Marvel Studios has turned its infamous post-credits scenes into the key characteristic of its cinematic universe, one that many franchises have since taken for their own. With comic book projects featuring between one and several scenes, the post-credit stingers have been used in a number of ways: namely to hint towards the future or occasionally be used for comedic purposes.

Naturally, with audiences eager to finally sit down for Multiverse of Madness, much of the speculation has revolved around the post-credit scenes and what they will involve. While those questions still remain a mystery, recent news has given an indication of what fans should prepare themselves for after the credits begin to roll.  

Does Doctor Strange 2 Have a Post-Credit Scene?

According to a recent report from ComicBookDoctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will feature two post-credit scenes. 

While unconfirmed, past patterns indicate one of these scenes will follow the initial animated credits sequence, while the other will be placed after the long credits scroll at the very end of the movie.

What Will Doctor Strange 2's Tags Tease?

Based on reports, Multiverse of Madness will have two post-credits scenes and at least one of which will almost certainly prove to be ground-breaking. After all, with a film on this level of multiverse-changing scale, there will no doubt be consequences for the MCU in the years to come.

Audiences should expect one of the two scenes to tease the future of Doctor Strange or Scarlet Witch in the MCU, but it's hard to make any guesses at what the future will look like for either character. After all, both have plenty of open story threads going into the Doctor Strange sequel.

At least one scene will surely tease where Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange will go in his third solo outing, But the second will almost certainly open the doors to larger stories for the MCU of the future, which may even involve more of the Illuminati, who are rumored to lead their own solo project in the years to come.

No matter what speculation may come in-between, it ought to become clearer how Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will tease the future when it hits theaters on May 6.
