  • Since Endgame hit theaters, many people have wondered why Doctor Strange wasn’t a bigger part of the final battle.Subscribe to our channel: bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Screenrant

    After playing such a large role in Avengers: Infinity War, one would think that he would have a similar sized role in the final fight.

    However, in Endgame, despite having been restored to life from a rather dusty state, we didn’t see him take a swing at Thanos during the final battle. Doctor Strange is one of the most powerful heroes in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. We don’t think anyone is going to try to argue with that.

    And while fighting Thanos on Titan during the events of Avengers: Infinity War, we got to see the Sorcerer Supreme hold his own against the Mad Titan pretty handley. Showcasing magical skills far beyond those we saw him use in his own solo film.

    So he didn’t fight Thanos again in Endgame, but why the heck not? Well, there is a theory floating around that might explain his actions.

    And if you are paying attention, it does indeed have to do with the 14,000,605 different futures that he saw when he looked into the future. And by the way, seeing all of those futures would make for a great future slate of Marvel movies. Why make new films when we could have millions of futures featuring our favorite characters! There’s probably one where Spider-Man bites the dust! But this theory goes a bit deeper than that. Let’s dive in, shall we?

    Strange needed Thanos to live and simply to be sent to the soul realm....Thanos is meant to return later down the line for other reasons. Trust

      Maybe he saw one that he died and then prevented that from happening. Either way, Strange is a douche bag.

          If the Avengers collected the infinity stones,and manage to collect all of it,it means Dr. Strange has a time stone,and there is a time stone on the gaunlet,it means TWO OF THE SAMW STONE

              ROFL! Burned by your own pitch meetings. What did they call the 1 in 14 million line? A shut the hell up excuse? Any complaints about any plot holes or mishaps with the characters, and it's a blanket excuse, to just go, oh, it had to happen that way, that must be how Dr. Strange saw it! AKA, lazy writing.

                              the Avengers could of have said that if Thanos snapped the gauntlet it would get rid of the half the food and recourses

                                If Doctor Strange had left the water up to other sorcerers to fight Thanos then that means the other sorcerers wouldn't have been able to help to fight the army.

And moreover, were the actions of the time travelling avengers selfish - did they destroy other universes just to save their own
