Doctor Strange is coming home next month, and he’s bringing Thor with him.
The latest Marvel movie introduced Benedict Cumberbatch’s Steven Strange, as well as mystical arts and multiple dimensions, to the cinematic universe. Doctor Strange, co-starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Mads Mikkelsen, and Tilda Swinton, has banked more than $658 million worldwide and scored a 90 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Today, Disney unveiled details of the Blu-ray and Digital HD release, comprising a half-dozen featurettes, including a look at the upcoming films in the MCU’s Phase Three, a commentary track by director Scott Derrickson, five deleted scenes, and — what we’re most psyched for — the second installment of “Team Thor,” the mockumentary that revealed what Thor (and new roomie Darryl) have been up to while the other Marvel heroes have been dealing with various existential crises.
The first chapter of “Team Thor,” starring Chris Hemsworth and directed by Thor: Ragnarok helmer Taika Waititi, debuted at San Diego Comic-Con last summer and was included on the Captain America: Civil War home edition. Hemsworth also appeared as Thor during one of Doctor Strange‘s credits sequences, seeking help looking for his missing father, Odin — a plot point that will be picked up in Ragnarok.
