Looks Like There's A Doctor Strange Mistake In The Final Avengers: Endgame Battle
Did you notice it?
When Avengers: Endgame was recently released on Digital and Blu-Ray many fans took it as an opportunity to take a closer look at the movie and pick up on things they hadn’t noticed the first time they watched it.
And considering how long the movie is, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that some mistakes made it through to the final cut. One eagle-eyed fan has spotted something curious in a scene featuring Doctor Strange.
Instagram user @ironman.tw uploaded a photo of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange wearing the Eye of Agamotto during the final battle in Avengers: Endgame, despite the fact Thanos destroyed it in Avengers: Infinity War.
Look, we get it, bringing together that many heroes for one scene and keeping everything consistent would be pretty tough.
It also seems as though the Eye of Agamotto is only seen right after Captain America yells the iconic words, “Avengers Assemble!”
Infinity War and Endgame were shot back-to-back, so it’s possible the scene was shot on the same day as the scene where Stephen Strange had yet to give up the Time Stone to Thanos in order to achieve the future he witnessed.
In the scene, Strange gives the stone away, despite having vowed to protect it, in order to save Tony Stark because, as we now know, it would be him that would make the ultimate sacrifice to save the world from Thanos five years later.
It could be possible that the version of Doctor Strange we see in that shot on Instagram is the version of the hero who went into the future to see the one scenario the Avengers could beat Thanos. However, that wouldn’t really work with the time travel rules the movie sets up, so we’ll just assume it was a mistake!
Cumberbatch will appear in Phase Four of the MCU in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which is set to the be the first horror film in the franchise.
Tom Holland's Already Spoiling Sony's Third Spider-Man Movie
However, Tom Holland is doing his best to reassure fans Sony’s third Spider-Man flick will be even better than the first two.
While promoting his new animated film Onward at Disney’s D23 Expo over the weekend, Holland spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the future of Spidey.
“Basically, we’ve made five great movies… It’s been five amazing years. I’ve had the time of my life. Who knows what the future holds? But all I know is that I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life.
“It’s going to be so fun, however we choose to do it. The future for Spider-Man will be different, but it will be equally as awesome and amazing, and we’ll find new ways to make it even cooler.”
While onstage at the expo, he also told the crowd, “Hey everyone, it’s been a crazy week but I want you all to know from the bottom of my heart that I love you 3000.”
Now, Holland is saying that the next Spider-Man film will be deeply connected to the previous movies and even hinted at one scene in particular that will be particularly important going forward.
According to Comic Book, the actor revealed during an appearance at Keystone Comic-Con, “I think the best work I’ve ever done in any film is the scene with [Jon] Favreau on the plane, and that’s such a pivotal moment for the three films that we’re making — well, two films we’ve made, one film we’re making. It’s… I don’t really know how to describe it without giving stuff away. I’m really trying hard here.”
In case you can’t quite remember the scene, it’s from Spider-Man: Far From Home where Peter is with Tony Stark’s friend and former bodyguard Happy Hogan on a Stark plane. Peter tells Happy he doesn’t think he has it in him to be the world’s next Iron Man, but Happy explains that Tony never would have made that sacrifice with Thanos “if he didn’t know that you were going to be here after he was gone”.
The pep-talk gets Peter inspired to use Stark technology and make his own Spidey suit to use in his fight against Mysterio.
Those who attended Keystone Comic-Con were asked not to ask Holland about the deal with one attendee saying the reason was because it “might mess up any contract discussions that will be announced within the next few days”. So, it seems like a new deal is entirely possible?
If Sony and Marvel can’t reach a deal, characters like Happy and Nick Fury will be unable to appear in future Spider-Man films and Sony will have to abandon any connections Spidey has with Iron Man and the Avengers.
Holland also told the crowd how the next film will be “special” but “very different”.
“It’s not the end of me playing Spider-Man. There’s definitely more to come. We sat down with some of our creatives. We pitched Spider-Man 3, which is going to be something very special, it’s going to be something very different.
“I’m just so grateful that Marvel changed my life and allowed my dreams to come true and Sony allowing me to continue living my dream. It’s a crazy week and it’s never been done before so we’ll see how it goes and it’ll be as amazing and as fun.”
Back in July, Marvel boss Kevin Feige revealed early plans for a Far From Home follow-up to CinemaBlend, saying, “It’ll be fun to see Spidey back in his element, out of the shadow of Tony, out of the shadow of the other Avengers, as his own man now, as his own hero.”
“And yet now facing his own challenges that aren’t coming from Avengers fighting, like [Captain America: Civil War], or aliens coming, like [Avengers: Infinity War] or [Avengers: Endgame]. It’s all Peter focused and Peter based.”
It will certainly be interesting to see how Sony deals with the web-slinger if they’re unable to reach a new deal with Marvel.
Hayley Atwell Reckons Captain America Totally Told Peggy About Kissing Her Great-Niece
Steve met S.H.I.E.L.D. founder Peggy in Captain America: The First Avenger and they proceeded to fall in love over the course of the film (and who wouldn’t fall in love with Chris Evans, let’s be honest).
However, the pair’s relationship comes to a tragic end when Steve seemingly dies after crashing a ship into the Arctic.
When Captain America’s frozen body is finally discovered it’s many years later and while Steve’s still young and hot, Peggy has aged and lived a full life.
She later dies in Captain America: Civil War, breaking Steve’s heart.
Later on in Civil War, however, Steve shares a kiss with Peggy’s great-niece Sharon Carter, which is a little awkward if you think about it.
So, when Steve went back in time in Endgame, would he have told Peggy? Hayley Atwell thinks so.
The actress, who played Peggy in the MCU films and her own TV show, told IGN, “Probably, in a very awkward way, that probably meant there was a domestic. Words were said, voices may have risen.”
However, she doesn’t think the kiss would have been a dealbreaker for Peggy, “Wouldn’t that be hilarious? If they had a proper argument about it and she just slams the door and he goes off fishing for the weekend or something, I don’t know.”
She added that it would have probably been quite funny rather than dramatic, “Because it’s the ’40s I think it can have such a beautiful, wholesome, kind of screwball comedy tone to it, rather than a soap opera.”
It’s good to know the pair can survive the awkward “sorry I kissed your great-niece” situation.
Atwell will return to the MCU in the new animated series What If…? where she’ll reprise her role as Peggy. In the show, alternate realities are explored, so, in this case, Peggy will receive the super-soldier serum instead of Steve, who will instead use an Iron Man suit made by Howard Stark.
Chris Evans, however, isn’t confirmed to be returning as the voice of Steve so there is a chance his role will be recast.
