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

  • Published on Mar 1, 2019
  • 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.

    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

    Why Doctor Strange Gave Thanos the Time Stone.

    He probably wanted thanos to snap and the due to the temptation destroy the stones since if it was dangerous for him it would kill anyone else that tried and better almost kill the villan than a hero and since even if thanos died destroying the stones they would still go back in time and grab the stones from the past to undo the snap. So the universe would return to normal and have no more threat of Infinity Stones. That's why thanos needed to win in Infinity War. Reply to Debate Me.
