Marvel Theory: This Is Why Doctor Strange Gave Thanos The Time Stone In Infinity War

  • There's a very particular reason why Doctor Strange gave Thanos the Time Stone, and we think we have it figured out! Subscribe to our channel:
    Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame is just around the corner and it seems that the theories surrounding what may happen in the mysterious movie have been growing exponentially. One such theory dives into why Dr. Strange really gave up the Time Stone when he swore to Tony and Peter that he’d put the Stone above their well being. As we know, Strange looked into over 14 million futures and saw one victorious outcome. But in order to have that future play out, he essentially had to move some people around like pieces on a chess board. One of those pieces was keeping Tony alive as he’s the only genius on the planet who could help the Avengers out with what comes next. What is that you may be wondering? Well, it all comes back to the most unlikely hero: Scott Lang’s Ant-Man. Being able to access the Quantum Realm, Ant-Man will prove invaluable in the upcoming film. What’s more, is that there is the possibility of time travel in the Quantum Realm. But these vortexes may not be so easy to navigate, meaning that Scott may end up bouncing around time, perhaps setting in motions events that have already come to pass. It’s an interesting theory but it all comes back to Scott and his ability to get into the Quantum Realm and finding a way to bring the Avengers with him. Perhaps this is how the Avengers will revisit classic scenes and characters in the upcoming film that is rumoured to be three hours long.

    It's so interesting to watch this video after seeing Endgame. Don't worry, I'll not give any spoilers to you folks in my past. You'll have to wait for your future to watch the film...if you survived the snap, that is.

    The real hero wasn't the rat or Iron Man in Endgame. If you think really hard enough, Star Lord is. If there was no Star Lord to begin with Thanos would've had the power stone earlier. But the one thing I think everyone forgets, Iron Man is abandoned on Star Lord's space ship so Iron Man could survive. I mean did we magically forget who's space ship it belonged to?

    This will spoil your endgame before reading this
    He gave it to thanos to spare starks life because 5 years into the future tony snapped to kill thanos but he couldn’t tell tony because in endgame he says to him:
    “If I tell you what happens it won’t happen “
    So dr strange had no choice to give it up as part as his future to success:
    Also the reason he didn’t create an endless loop is because thanos had reality stone to stop that and to make things worse the power stone made it more powerful
    “Reality can be whatever that person wants if they wield it”
    I hope you learned something from this and have a nice day:))

    so basically, doctor strange saw all 14,000,605 outcomes and one winning one.
    so he relied on a rat who just happened to be lurking for his master plan.
    if that rat wasn't there, there would have been no way for avengers to undo the snap.

  • DanDLE
    DanDLE 10 months ago

    After watching End Game, here is my opinion why Dr Strange gave the Time Stone and wanted Iron Man spared

    Back in Infinity War Strange looked all of the possible outcomes, Its 1 of 1,465,000

    Strange saw Iron Man did the Snap

    The reason why he wants Iron Man spared is because he knows that if Thanos will kill Stark that 1 possible outcome will not happen, and half of the universe will be dead forever

    Sorry for my bad English
