In the Marvel Universe, one of the most iconic superhero landmarks is Doctor Strange's secretive and well-disguised lair, the Sanctum Sanctorum. Now, it seems like Strange's Greenwich Village headquarters can be found in the real world, not by using something complicated Tony Stark invention, but by simply using the Google Maps app.
Twitter user TheHey found the Sanctum and tweeted out its location, which may well inspire comic fans to head there themselves. Of course, there's a catch if you go looking for the real building, since it doesn't actually exist.
In Marvel's mythos, Strange's library, where he perfects the Mystic Arts is located at 177A Bleecker Street. In the real world though, 177A just doesn't exist. But at 177 Bleecker Street, you will find yourself nestled comfortably next to Village Tattoo NYC, a tattoo parlor, and the Chow House restaurant, instead of a hideout where magic is being practiced.
While it doesn't actually exist, it'll certainly be a fun treasure hunt for fans who want to get the Marvel experience in person. The building prominently featured in Doctor Strange, and also made notable cameos in Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War. Given that the keeper of the Time Stone resides there, many expect Wong and the Sanctum to make another appearance in Avengers: Endgame this April, and obviously, in the Doctor Strange sequel once Marvel Studios sorts out how the Sorcerer Supreme returns after being dusted by Thanos.
Avengers: Endgame will arrive on April 26. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, the film stars Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Chadwick Boseman, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie.
