Moments before the fateful car crash which will forever change the life of Stephen Strange, the arrogant neurosurgeon can be seen turning down various patients who are offered to him because they’re either not interesting enough or won’t bring him the sort of notoriety he’s grown used to. Listen closely though and you may notice that one of these is Colonel James Rhodes, a.k.a. War Machine. His name is never mentioned, but the doctor’s secretary mentions that the man she’s talking about suffered a serious spinal injury while inside an armoured suit, and that’s obviously a reference to the events of Captain America: Civil War.
