Here's why Doctor Strange displayed immense magical prowess in his fight with Thanos

infinity war doctor strange vs thanos

Doctor Strange was a magical addition to the family of the Avengers, literally. The skills and tricks possessed by this guy are amazing. It’s like getting a taste of cosmic-level prowess. The spells he uses have great names, with some even named after demons. The scene where he wraps up Thanos using his infinite projections technique, he used red bands to restrain Thanos. These bands are the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak, named after the demon Cyttorak.

One might wonder that how did Doctor Strange display such sheer magical prowess in the fight against Thanos on Titan. And he didn’t even use the infinite power of the Time Stone. Well, this can be explained easily. The bottom line is that he learned all these new techniques and spells while he was on Titan. To be specific, while he was going through the future timelines.


As calculated by a Reddit user, assuming he spent 3 hours in each future outcome, he spent nearly 5000 years traversing through all the outcomes. Now, this could be considered as an impromptu practice and training session he had.

He could have even got Thanos on his knees with him begging Doctor Strange to spare him. But he didn’t do this because “there was no other way.” He could have easily subdued Thanos but no. He could have won this little fight but the Avengers and the entire world with it would have lost the big fight. That’s why he restrained himself and did only what was necessary to register the big win.

Doctor Strange is definitely going to be in Avengers Endgame. He might even have a pivotal role in the movie considering that he is the only way who knows how everything is supposed to happen to defeat Thanos and save the world.

  1. Recently, I was surveying about the costumes of Marvel characters and found out Doctor Strange's costume to be the most underrated one. This is absolutely unimaginable certainly when there are a number of outdated wardrobes given to the characters as compared to the Doctor Strange Benedict Cumberbatch Red Coat which still is pretty much better than the rest.

The Russos reveal why Thanos couldn't stop Stormbreaker

Infinity War had many breathtaking moments. One of them was when Thor, in his God mode, hurled his Stormbreaker towards Thanos and it turns out that event the Infinity Gauntlet could not stop the God’s weapon. It went on to pierce through the Gauntlet’s power and finally impaled Thanos’ chest. This presented a question to many fans. We couldn’t help but wonder as to why the Gauntlet couldn’t stop the Stormbreaker. The Gauntlet is supposed to be the most powerful object in the universe.

Mark Ruffalo leaks Avengers 4 title, The Russos 'fire' him

I am delighted to inform you all that Mark Ruffalo has acted good on his ‘Spoiler’ streak and given out the much anticipated title of Avengers 4. This leak happened when Mark appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s show on Saturday. His visit will be regarding the upcoming elections to be held in America. But Jimmy, of course, asked him about the upcoming Avengers 4. And just like that his basic instincts take over and he spits out the title of the movie. As if that was not enough, the actor then proceeded to tell about a particular scene involving hulk. While telling all this, he couldn’t control his excitement and starting jumping on the couch while narrating the scene. You can watch the small clip below, but all the spoilers have been beeped out.

The Avengers 4 Title Mark Ruffalo gave away has been 'unbeeped' by a fan

It has been a considerable time since the Captain Marvel trailer made its way to the internet. But the title of Avengers 4 has not been yet revealed. Kevin Feigi had earlier said that we can expect the title after the Captain Marvel trailer. So, it is nigh time to break out the title of the movie. Well, it so happens that our Spoiler Man, Mark Ruffalo gave out the title of the movie in the Jimmy Fallon Show. Apparently, he was so excited that he also narrated a Hulk scene from the movie. But unfortunately, the words of Mark Ruffalo were beeped out. So we couldn’t get to know the title. The Russos responded to this behavior of Mark Ruffalo by tweeting, “Mark, you’re fired.”

Now, we all know that whole of this skit was to increase the hype for the movie. So, the alleged title Ruffalo spat during the show might not have been real at all. Nevertheless, one fan has deduced the title of the movie by ‘unbeeping’ the words of Ruffalo using some editing software. And the alleged title is – THE …
