Is there a Captain Marvel Easter Egg in the Doctor Strange movie? There may be.

In our list of over 25 Doctor Strange Easter Eggs, one particular scene in Doctor Strange mentions a 22-year-old girl who wears a electronic device to treat her schizophrenia, and she ends up getting struck by lightning.

As fans of the Marvel comic books know, Carol Danvers, aka Ms. Marvel aka Captain Marvel, received her powers as a result of being fused with Kree DNA (long story short). It's already become known that the Carol Danvers Captain Marvel origin story will be different than the comics because Kevin Feige thinks it's too close to DC's Green Lantern (works in the Air Force and gets her powers from an alien), so it's possible that Captain Marvel in the MCU might be completely different. Regarding the character's schizophrenia (assuming it's Captain Marvel), off the bat that reminds me of the relationship Mar-vell had with Rick Jones in that they shared a mind/body connection. caught up with Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson and questioned him about the possible Captain Marvel Easter Egg. The article notes Derrickson "said he could neither confirm nor deny" the Doctor Strange Captain Marvel Easter Egg, "but he was smiling (so infer from that what you like)."

“Remember that Brittany Murphy movie where she goes ‘I’ll never tell…’” Derrickson teased referencing the 2001 movie Don’t Say a Word.

The Captain Marvel movie has a March 8, 2019 release starring Brie Larson as the titular character.

"Doctor Strange" is now in theaters directed by Scott Derrickson starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton, Benedict Wong, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Mads Mikkelsen.


Marvel’s Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilising a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.
