  • Published on May 15, 2019

How crucial were characters like the Hulk, Ant-Man, and the Ancient One to Doctor Strange's Plan? Erik Voss breaks down the most mysterious moments of Endgame and Infinity War for the interesting details that you might have overlooked. In what ways were all of Strange's words to Tony Stark clues for Stark's ultimate sacrifice?

    He also told Tony on ship he would sacrifice anyone for the stone. He spared Tony sooooo...

    You clearly missed the part in Endgame, when Thanos says 'Avengers' when he is scanning Nebula's mind. He knew who they were, even if he for some reason didn't know Scarlet Witch(weird how he knew their names but not hers).

      Because that was 2014, the Avegers had already beat the Chitauri, but Age of Ultron had not happened yet.

    Strange couldn't have seen events in which he did not exist, so he most probably saw outcomes of his actions.

    Strange raised one finger in Endgame not only because it was the one way they could win, but I took it as him telling Tony he had to snap Thanos and his army or else they’d lose.

    I always wondered why Strange couldn't just do that 'rewind' trick on Titan when they almost had the gauntlet off Thanos and then StarLord goofed it up

    Ebony Maw said no one else had accomplished even possessing 2 stones at once but Loki had the mind stone in his scepter and the space stone (Tesserect) at the same time.

    You know, the fact that Strange put together all these pieces that even the Ancient One couldn't probably makes him the smartest Avenger. He had to get the timing EXACTLY right - too early and Scott wouldn't have been in the quantum realm.
    I'd like to think that being in the quantum realm rendered Scott invulnerable to the snap, making Strange's timing that much crazier

    Just saw the movie and i noticed somthing that noone else have touched. 'by removing the stones from one reality you will open that reality to darknes. How can we defend against evil when you are removing oure greatest weapons?' what will happen in oure timeline. all the infinitie stones are gone. removed from oure reality.

    If 2014's Thanos and his army got dusted then it means they r not dead, they can be brought back just like hulk brought back everyone

  • Rick Venables

    I agree with most of this but you're incorrect about when doctor strange holds up the single finger Towards the end of End game, he was telling Tony to wait until Thanos re installed the power stone into the gauntlet Giving Tony's nano suit the ability to steal all of the stones instead of 5 of them

    Or nebula could've held Quill back, Spidey gets the glove off, Doctor Strange sends it to the Mirror Dimension, and they beat Thanos. Maybe strange didn't see every possible outcome.

    Well the other reality got off easy. Thanos and all company came to the one we know. While the "other" reality would still have there tony stark.

      @Joel 7491 speaking of which why would it be such a big deal about putting the stone back cuz it's already a completely different reality since they nose came back to this one so why were they still talk about preserving the timeline it made no sense

    It would be interesting if we see the other outcomes. I dont think the Avengers only have one chance to beat Thanos due to how many overpowered heroes the team has. I think in some Thanos did lose against Avengers but would bring a bigger threat to the picture like Galactus.

    I mean, I keep hearing how no ones had posession of two stones but Loki clearly posses both in Avengers.

    Nah I always knew there was an obvious reason other than to keep Tony alive when Strange just gave away the time stone, and in endgame I got my answer, he did that in order for the ancient one to do the same, like a message of what to do.

    question: why does it have to be tony to take the stone??
    answer: lets not forget that the gaunlet was made by tony featuring its nanotech... its only tony that could actually pull and snatch all the stones from thanos' arms...

    Strange told Stark on Maw's ship "If it comes down to you and the kid or the stone I will not hesitate to sacrifice either of you. I can't because the universe depends on it." He ended up sacrificing him. But at Stark's funeral you can see his sorrow/guilt

    So that’s mean there was no way that avengers could win.....in that 14milion timelines. ... .
    Its the option just created by the brilliant dr.strange to made a sacrifice of the tony stark in the endgame......
