Something that has occurred to me in after the movie was more in the vain of Doctor Strange and the lack now of the time stone. In his film, the time stone is said to be the greatest defense against the darkness of other realms.It also served as the MCU eye of agamotto which is one Doctor Strange’s most powerful weapon in and out of the comics. So, for him to be without it now leaves me to wonder how much harder has it been for the Sorcerers of the MCU to battle whatever darkness that is out there.
Doctor Strange since his film is clearly one of the most powerful heroes in the MCU now. With all honesty without the time stone, it could pass that Dormammu could actually try and get to our world again. The whole second film could be Strange trying to stop him from coming to our world.
An even bigger argument could be made that the next big bad post-Thanos could be Dormmua himself. Think about it without the time stone he poses the biggest threat to the world. With Mordo still out there as well it would stand to reason that they could be quietly setting up the next big bad.
At this point, it’s all theories no one really knows for sure what’s going to happen next. At this point, It’s all our best guest. In the comics Doctor Strange has been seen using even more powerful magic than that of the time stone but with those powers comes a price. It leads me to believe that without the eye of aggamotto anymore Doctor Strange will have to learn new much more dangerous skills to protect our reality.
Doctor Strange is rumored to start filming his sequel sometime next year some sources have said. Will he be one of the next major players in the Avengers only time will tell on that. For now, it’s going to be pondering what’s to come next for the MCU.
