THEORY: Doctor Strange The Key To Stopping Thanos?

3775

Avengers: Infinity War is out in the theatres and is well on its way to breaking box office records. The movie entered the history books by becoming the Highest Opening Gross Of All-Time over the weekend.

While all of us are dealing with the deaths and destruction caused by Thanos, there are many theories floating around as to how things are going to work out in Avengers 4.

Everyone has a reason to believe that Captain Marvel will be the key to saving our beloved Avengers owing to the dramatic post credits scene but I have a hunch that it will be Dr. Strange who saves the day.

During the movie, Strange goes ahead in time to see all the possible outcomes and out of the 14 Million outcomes (and 605), there’s only ONE in which the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes were able to beat Thanos. Also, Strange made it very clear that if he had to choose between saving Stark/Peter and protecting the Time Stone, he’d not hesitate in sacrificing their life but in the end, he gave Thanos the Time Stone to protect Iron Man. Now, we know that Dr. Strange is not the one for emotions. Then, why’d he save someone he barely even knew? Because maybe for that one outcome to be true and to defeat Thanos, STARK HAS TO LIVE. Let’s be honest, no matter who the strongest avenger is, Stark has always been the key.

Secondly, Strange told one of Thanos’ troops that it would be impossible for anyone to lift his spell if he was dead. Now, who’s to say that he didn’t put a spell on the stone while giving it to Thanos? A spell that perhaps creates a different outcome when Thanos uses it? We all know that Strange is powerful enough to create multiple dimensions, so there’s a possibility that half the people who had apparently died are alive, but in a mirror dimension created by Dr. Strange.

Lastly, Strange mentions to Stark, “We’re in the Endgame now”, right before his death. This clearly indicates that Strange knew that there’s still some hope left for the Avengers. 
Also, Avengers 4 title is yet to be revealed but if I were to go with one, I’d say that Avengers: Endgame sounds pretty damn good.

All in all, I think it will be the Master of the Mystic Arts who gives Thanos the beating he deserves.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Danai Gurira, Peter Dinklage, Benedict Wong, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, and Chris Pratt.


As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
