Theory of looking back to the present moment in Avengers: Infinity War when the Sorcerer Supreme, do Benedict Cumberbatchgive the Time Stone to Thanos (Josh Brolin) to save Iron Man’s life.
This was the pivotal moment behind Thanos’ success in obtaining all six of the Infinity Stones, helping him to rob him of half of human existence.
Previously, Doctor Strange used the Time Stone to see a total of 14,000,605 possible outcomes in Thanos’ plan; he claims that only one of those outcomes resulted in the Avengers defeating the Mad Titan. We have seen these events take place in Avengers: Endgame.
Doctor Strange needs Tony to live so that Tony can sacrifice himself and defeat Thanos.
But it was also these same events that led to the events depicted in the Disney+ TV show Loki.
While carrying out the time travel heist, in order to get all the time stones, the 2012 version of Loki could be a far cry from his timeline.
In LokiTom Hiddleston’s character inadvertently causes the rise of a terrifying character that certainly is Marvel The Cinematic Universe’s Next Thanos-Type Villain: Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors).
If Doctor Strange is to be believed, he knows how things will turn out, including the alternate timeline-jumping events of Lokiand decided to keep that away from his fellow superheroes.
Either that, or he recklessly lied when he said he saw the whole end when he gave the Time Stone to Thanos. Or maybe he didn’t double-check each timeline (no review needed – it’s a big deal for one person, after all).
According to Reddit user Docile_Doggo: “Doctor Strange says he only sees a future where the Avengers ‘win’, so future sightings of Strange must certainly include Loki stealing the Tesseract.
“Doctor Strange simply doesn’t see all the possible futures, Doctor Strange lied, or the Sacred Timeline in which Loki never stole the Tesseract and the fact that the Avengers are still ‘winning’ is the which can never begin.”
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be released on May 6, 2022.
