Late last night, a new batch of stills emerged from the Brisbane, Queensland set of Thor: Ragnarok, showing off stars Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth in what’s supposed to be New York City. At the time, we had no idea what the context of the scene being filmed was, but today, we may have gotten our first clue.
Director Taika Waititi posted three more pictures earlier this morning to his Twitter feed (re-Tweeting photographer Daley Pearson) and one of them has revealed something pretty exciting. In the gallery above, you’ll notice the first photo features Hemsworth holding a business card. Nothing special about that, right? Well, not quite.
A closer look reveals the address on the business card, which reads 177A Bleecker Street. That may not mean much to most of you, but hardcore Marvel fans will know it as the location of Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum.

So, does this mean we can expect the Sorcerer Supreme to cameo in Thor: Ragnarok? It’s certainly looking likely. It would make sense, too, if the God of Thunder came to New York to seek help from the doctor against an unknown threat. After all, by the time Thor’s third solo film rolls into theatres, audiences will already be quite familiar with Doctor Strange.
At the same time, it’s important to keep in mind that Waititi could just be having some fun here. After all, we’ve had no confirmation of Benedict Cumberbatch appearing in any other Marvel film as of yet – and likely won’t until much further down the road. As such, all we can do is speculate until we hear something from the studio.
Thor: Ragnarok will be with us on November 3rd, 2017. Tell us, do you think Doctor Strange may cameo in the film? Let us know your thoughts in the usual place.
