In a recent post, someone gave their theory as to how the Avengers and Doctor Strange will win in Avengers 4. And Ant-Man is at the center of it all.
In it, the fan gave a very detailed explanation regarding Doctor Strange’s abilities and how they relate to his apparent death in the latest Avengers film:
Ok so here are a few Doctor strange theories I’ve came up with recently and they makes a lot of sense and they connect well with other theories and potential leaked info about the soul world, the quantum realm, time travel, and Starks B.A.R.F tech.
When Doctor Strange viewed the 14 million alternate futures , I believe the one future he saw where they ultimately won in the end, he saw the soul world and the quantum realm. If you go back to the doctor strange movie when he used the time stone to create a time loop against Dormammu, it reset, or looped, as soon as he died. I think the same concept is happening while he is viewing the potential futures. Because he’s only seeing his own future, so once he dies there’s nothing left to view. And we know he would have seen himself turn to dust, but he knows that they win and that Tony Stark needs to survive to do so. So how would he be able to see that if he’s a pile of dust? Well my theory is , instead of actually dying, him and the other half of humanity were transported into the soul world, so now he would be able to continue viewing the future, where in the end he’s brought back and sees it’s by Tony Starks doing and that they have defeated Thanos . This would explain why Doctor Strange traded the time stone for Tony Starks life.
In addition he went into how it would tie into the quantum realm, established in Ant-Man and the Wasp. It also can’t help but tie into the rumored time travel theories for the next Avengers film:
Theory of the potential plot: Once Doctor Strange is in the soul world , he quickly finds a way out but only into the quantum realm where he will find Ant-man and use Scott to send a message to Tony. Similar to how Janet did in the Ant-man movie. Scott will end up using a time.vortex to.escape the quantum realm and accidentally end up years in the future, he will seek out Tony Stark and tell him about the time vortexes within the quantum realm. Tony will use his B.A.R.F tech on Scott to explore the quantum realm through Scotts memories of being there. Where he will stumble on to Doctor strange showing him which time vortex to use to go back in time and telling him about everyone being trapped in the the soul world. Giving Tony the motivation and drive he needs to save everyone.
