While on a journey of physical and spiritual healing, a brilliant neurosurgeon is drawn into the world of the mystic arts.
Although this is Doctor Strange's first outing in an MCU solo movie, the character has been teased in earlier movies. In Thor (2011) the Orb of Agamotto can be seen among the treasures in Odin's treasure chamber. In Thor: The Dark World (2013), the Crossroads is among the various phrases written on Selvig's chalkboard; the Crossroads is an other-dimensional reality that has a prominent role in the "Doctor Strange" comics. In Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Jasper Sitwell mentions Stephen Strange as one of the high-risk targets that HYDRA keeps under surveillance.
The Ancient One:
Master Kaecilius. That ritual will bring you only sorrow.
(at around 6 mins) In the bullet surgery scene, Dr Strange says the bullet has probably been hardened with antimony, which would imply it was a cast bullet. When he extracts it, it appears to be copper jacketed and not cast. It is also unlikely a hardened bullet, or any other bullet, would stop in the brain, as it would more likely pass through the head and exit.
SPOILER: There is a scene in the closing credits: Dr Strange meets Thor and offers to help him locate his father. This is in fact an alternate version of the same scene from Thor: Ragnarok (2017).
