One of the most charming moments of Doctor Strange was the end tag which brought Thor into the Sanctum Sanctorum to ask some help from the Sorceror Supreme. Here’s a little behind-the-scenes featurette from the Doctor Strange release which shows what goes into making these tags (besides beer).

As is now the tradition for Marvel movies, Doctor Strange has released in the U.K. today—two weeks before it arrives in the U.S..
