At the end of February, I wrote a post featuring Doctor Strange, the moment he went forward in time to see what was going to happen, and how impactful that small part is in the whole scheme of things. Now, looking back, I’m getting chills (and a bit teary) just reading this old post. I hope you enjoy. 🙂
I love Avengers: Infinity War. I have watched it countless times and found a way to enjoy it with every viewing. Avengers: Endgame is coming out in two months (thank the maker) and so as we grow closer to the event of the year I’m trying to find hidden references or tantalizing easter eggs that’ll maybe give a hint toward the events of Endgame.
In my latest viewing of Infinity War, the scene involving Doctor Strange’s time travel hit me because of its striking importance.
Doctor Strange foresaw 14, 000, 605 possible futures and only one version of the future saw them winning the fight against Thanos. While that would seem heartening the expression on Strange’s face says it all.
He knows what is going to happen and judging from the look he’s wearing it’s not going to be good. We think the worst has happened due to Thanos’s Infinity Snap but there is much more hardship coming and it’s going to be a doozy. Beloved heroes are going to die and this time they won’t be the subject of imminent resurrection.
This scene, while simple, is hands down, in my opinion, the single most important moment in Infinity War. And while we won’t completely understand the importance of this scene until we watch Endgame I’m sure there will be a day when looking back, this moment will be even more chilling than it is now.
Oh, and by the way, Tony Stark is so doomed. The way Doctor Strange looks at him as if he can see the very moment in time when he will perish is frightening (and saddening) indeed.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day.
