Avengers Endgame: Dr. Strange’s Insane Plan from Infinity War to Endgame: Avengers Endgame gets its title from a key line uttered by Doctor Strange toward the end of its predecessor, Avengers: Infinity War. After losing the fight with Thanos on the planet Titan, Strange tells Tony Stark, “We’re in the endgame now.” It’s a reference to the fact that Strange has a plan for beating Thanos, and even though it seems like the Avengers are losing, there’s more to the fight against the Mad Titan than just this battle. (Check out our Endgame review to see if the finale measures up to the setup.)
Infinity War ended with Thanos’s victory and his snap, in which he used the Infinity Stones to eliminate half of all life in the universe. Among those who ceased to exist was Doctor Strange, who never got a chance to explain what his big plan was. Now that Avengers: Endgame is here, we can see what he was thinking–and why he changed his mind about allowing Thanos to get the Time Stone.
First, it’s important to remember exactly what Strange said in Infinity War. Originally, his plan was to keep the Time Stone away from Thanos by any means necessary, but he was unwilling to let Tony destroy it or otherwise take it away from him–Strange was insistent that he keep the stone. After he was kidnapped by Thanos’s lieutenant, Ebony Maw, and rescued by Tony and Spidey, Strange reiterated that the most important thing in the fight was the stone. He pointedly told Tony that no matter what happened, he would protect the stone, even at the cost of the lives of Tony, Peter Parker, or both.
When they reach Titan, Doctor Strange spends part of the discussion of how to take down Thanos using the Time Stone. He watches some 14 million possible timelines, and as he tells Tony, and only saw one in which the Avengers won the battle. The fight ensues with the team coming close to getting the Infinity Gauntlet away from Thanos, which could have allowed them to stop him, but they’re unsuccessful. In the final moments of the fight, Thanos stabs Tony in the gut, then prepares to finish him off.
This is the moment where Strange changes things. He makes a bargain with Thanos: Spare Tony’s life in exchange for the Time Stone. It’s a big shift from Strange’s earlier declaration that the stone was more important than anyone on the team. Strange’s comment about being in the endgame comes soon after, once Thanos has departed from Wakanda. That reveals that Strange changing his mind and saving Tony services some greater agenda, more important than keeping the Time Stone away from Thanos.
We all know what happens next: Thanos wins. But Endgame reveals why Strange made the decision that he did, because Tony’s survival in Infinity War is essential to everything that happens. When Scott Lang returns from the Quantum Realm, he reveals that Hank Pym’s shrinking technology can make time travel possible–but it’s Tony Stark who figures out how the team can travel to specific places and times, without getting lost along the way. Strange knew that the Avengers couldn’t beat Thanos in a straight fight, but that they’d be able to eventually undo the snap–if Tony was still alive to help them figure out how.
Strange and Tony have another big moment during the climax of the film. As Tony is battling Thanos, trying to get the Gauntlet away from him so he can’t use the Infinity Stones again, he catches Strange’s eye. The pair have already had a conversation about the future; as Strange puts it, telling Tony about what was going to happen would cause it not to happen, because the knowledge would cause Tony (and potentially everyone else) to change how they would act.
In the final moments of the fight, Strange, meeting Tony’s eyes, raises one finger. It calls back their earlier discussion–this is the one successful version of events, telling Tony they’re on the right path. But Strange is also signaling what Tony has already realized: that it’s up to Tony to defeat Thanos, and to use the Infinity Stones to do it. And Tony knows from seeing both Thanos and Hulk use the Gauntlet that it’ll likely kill him.
The reality is that Strange has known this was how things had to go the whole time. He stopped Thanos from killing Tony in Infinity War because he knew that Tony had a huge role to play in the rest of the fight. Tony would be essential to helping secure time travel; he’d be necessary to get hold of the Space Stone and build the gauntlet that would allow the Avengers to use the Infinity Stones; and he’d be the one to finally defeat Thanos.
And when Strange said he couldn’t tell Tony the outcome or it would change, it was because he knew that Tony still had one more role to play: He’d have to sacrifice himself to beat Thanos.
The bummer is that Strange knew all this, but in 14 million timelines, couldn’t see another way forward–maybe one where Tony got to live a long and happy life with his family. But with the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s big arc beginning with Iron Man and closing with Avengers: Endgame, it’s pretty fitting that the key to everything would be Tony Stark, doing the very thing Steve Rogers said Tony was incapable of during their first mission together in The Avengers: sacrificing himself for the greater good.
Priyanka Chopra says, “loves to do more action movies”
WHEN IT COMES TO TAKING UP NEW CHALLENGES NOTHING IS HOLDING PIGGY CHOPS BACK!
OUR DESI GIRL IS AN INSPIRATION FOR MANY YOUNGSTERS AS SHE IS FIERCE AND BELIEVES IN “MAKING WINE OUT OF LEMONS!” ( TURNING DIFFICULT SITUATIONS IN YOUR FAVOUR)
RECENTLY IN AN INTERVIEW P.C GAVE US ANOTHER REASON FOR BEING HAILED AS A “BOSS LADY”
SHE DOES HER OWN STUNTS AND HER FANS HAVE SEEN HER FLAWLESS ACTION IN QUANTICO (SEASON 1 & 2) AND DON FRANCHISE!
CHOPRA ARTICULATED HER VIEWS ABOUT HOW FASCINATING SHE FINDS THE ACTION GENRE, AS SHE WENT ON TO SAY: “I have always done my own stunts. I trust my body immensely. I am as athletic as a person. I just really enjoy action movies. I have done them in ”Don” and ”Quantico”. I hope to do more of them,”
NOT JUST THIS BUT FORMER MISS WORLD GAVE AN IMPRESSIVE REALITY CHECK IN CONJUNCTION WITH HER STIRRING GENDER NEUTRAL VIEWS:
The genre is generally seen as a hero”s domain.
“I am someone who believes in a gender-neutral world. I hope in my lifetime we reach a place where we say movies instead of female-centric movies, we say directors instead of female directors, we say athletes instead of female athletes,” said the former Miss World.
“I hope my children don’t have to worry about the fact that ”this is an Indian female cricket team or Indian female movie”. We don’t say ”it is a male-centric movie, so let”s go and watch it”. So why do we have to say that it”s a female (centric movie)? I hope that happens and I am seeing it more and more as the conversation… where girls are coming out of their shells, and parents are supporting in finding their own feet. My parents supported me in all my dreams and ambitions,” said Priyanka.
She has many projects in her kitty, including a superhero movie titled “We Can Be Heroes”. Will the audience get to see her as a superhero?
“I can’t tell you that but it”s a kid’s superhero movie by Robert Rodriguez. Do you know ”Spy Kids”? This (”We Can Be Heroes”) is in that world a little bit, and a lot of amazing actors have come together to tell the story. It will be really fun,”
WE ARE IN AWE WITH HER EFFORTLESSLY BEAUTIFUL YET STRONG OPINIONS AND ACTIONS! SHE IS DEFINITELY ONE OF THOSE CELEBRITIES WHO HAS STURDY PRINCIPLES WHICH IS ULTIMATELY REFLECTEDDD IN THEIR WORK. WE ARE EAGERLY WAITING FOR HER UPCOMING MOVIES AND ANYTHING THAT P.C HAS TO OFFER!
Good News: The return of Robert Downey Jr. is now confirmed!
Yep, you read that right; rumors revolving around the possible cameo of Robert Downey Jr. in the upcoming Black Widow movie have got all of our hopes up.
Just remembering the scenes of Avengers: End game, that snap, that ending, and Tony’s last words still bring fresh tears to all Marvel fans’ eyes. But now it seems that our beloved might just grace us with his scene in Scarlett Johnson’s starrer Black widow.
For those wondering, if this is an indication of a kind of rebirth of Iron Man, then I am sorry to douse your hopes because it isn’t. Technically, the movie is set in times before the End game, hence before all the painful and heartbreaking deaths and drifting apart of the Avengers. Tony Stark, is thus alive, humorous and rich as ever and may just be seen on the screens again, after the final goodbyes he bade in Avengers: End game.
So sit tight (indoors!), wait (it’s not like any of us is too busy these days) and hope that we see our hero in action again.
Joker the Winner of Oscars 2020 Nomination
Now that the 2020 Oscar nominations are in, the requisite analysis can begin. You can’t learn a lot about movies from the Oscar nods, but you can learn a lot about the movie industry — what it prioritizes, who it favors, who it ignores over and over again. And this year’s nominees provide plenty of fodder for that analysis.
Alongside “most controversial movie of the year” and “highest-grossing non-Disney movie of the year,” Joker is now the “most Oscar-nominated” movie, too, which isn’t too surprising. The movie started its path to the Oscars by winning the coveted Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in early September. It also earned solid reviews and had the biggest October box-office opening of all time. And it’s been raking in awards all season, especially for star Joaquin Phoenix, who even the movie’s detractors generally agree merits recognition for his body-contorting performance. That’s a huge showing for director Todd Phillips, who until 2019 was best known as for helming the Hangover trilogy.
The only thing standing in Joker’s way — at least from the standpoint of industry insiders who vote on the Academy Awards — is that it’s based on a comic book property, which still carries the whiff of “unserious” to some. But movies like 2008’s The Dark Knight and last year’s Best Picture nominee (and similarly high earner) Black Panther have paved the way in that regard. And given that Joker self-consciously, if clumsily, mimics two classic movies made by Martin Scorsese (whose own film The Irishman earned 10 nominations), its “serious” bona fides seem well-established. The big question now is whether the Academy loves the movie enough to actually send it home with trophies. — Alissa Wilkinson
The Oscars have never had a sparkling track record with nominating people of color in the biggest categories. The omissions are particularly glaring this year: While Bong Joon-ho scored several nominations for his unforgettable film Parasite, the only non-white nominee in the acting field is Cynthia Erivo. And Erivo is recognized for her turn as Harriet Tubman in Harriet — stellar work, to be sure, but it’s hard not to find it dismaying that the one black person with a big-deal Oscar nod played a slave.
When it comes to ethnic and LGBTQ diversity, there are almost no non-Americans and no self-identified queer nominees this year. Again setting aside Bong’s recognition for Parasite, Antonio Banderas is the one international star to pick up a nomination, for Best Actor in Pain and Glory. And almost every one of the Best Picture nominees probes the fascinating, unsung trials and tribulations of … being a white man in society.
For as great as many of the nominated films and actors are, #OscarsSoWhite — and straight, and American — has reared its head once more. — Allegra Frank
