Captain America: The Winter Soldier is easily one of the best movies from the house of Marvel. This movie introduced to us the Winter Soldier, who was revealed to be Steve’s childhood best friend, Bucky Barnes. There is a particular scene which some people consider a plot hole. When Steve is interrogating that bald Hydra guy ( I’ve forgotten his name) on the rooftop, the name, Steven Strange, pops up. He is the list of people Hydra is gonna kill because Zola’s algorithm had deemed him, among others, a threat to Hydra. But at that time, Strange was just a surgery specialist. At that time, he had not been introduced to the Mystic Arts, which would eventually forge a Sorcerer out of him.
Actually, this is not really a plot hole. Zola’s algorithm had chosen millions of people as a threat. Steven Strange, being a wealthy, successful person was also in the list. But there must be a reason why that bald guy specifically mentioned Steven Strange. If he was just a commoner to him, he wouldn’t know his name. A theory attempts to explain this whole situation. This theory claims that, during the events of Infinity War, Doctor Strange traveled back to the 90s, and he informed Fury of the whole situation and he is the one who advised him to keep the ‘Captain Marvel contacting pager’ with him all the time. He also told him about how, in the future, people would start turning to ash and that he should use the pager when he witnesses this. This theory also predicts that the abuse that left Fury’s mouth at the end of Infinity War was hurled at none other than Doctor Strange. Because Strange did not tell him that he was also on the list of people who would turn to ash.
And after meeting Strange, Fury enlisted him as an ally of Shield. And anyone who is an ally of Shield is an enemy of Hydra. That would explain Strange’s name popping up in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
