A newly-released deleted scene from Avengers: Infinity War confirms the authenticity of an old leak with Spider-Man and Doctor Strange.
A full nine months and change to the release of the film, an alleged Avengers: Infinity War leak surfaced online, featuring Spider-Man and Doctor Strange. The scene in question took place on Titan, showcasing a levitating Doctor Strange instructing Spider-Man to save the others as the titular Infinity War was in full swing. It appears as though this Infinity War scene took place after Star-Lord’s tragic mistake that awoke Thanos, just as victory was within reach for the Avengers, and would have served as a lead-in to the scene where Spider-Man is shown saving the Guardians of the Galaxy from falling debris.
While this alleged Infinity War scene was initially dismissed as a hoax, ComicBook.com is reporting that this is not the case. The recently-released deleted scenes for Marvel’s The Infinity Saga box set showcase a more complete version of the sequence, confirming that it was a real leak. The Avengers: Infinity War deleted scene is unfortunately not available online, but you can see a screencap of the leak below:
Although Avengers: Infinity War set up a sort of camaraderie between Doctor Strange and Spider-Man, the two are not slated to cross paths again anytime soon. Less likely for another crossover: Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy. In any case, Infinity War certainly presented the webhead with some great storytelling opportunities that aren’t likely to be replicated anytime soon.
Here is the official synopsis for Avengers: Endgame:
