Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) uses the mirror dimension to his advantage in new Avengers: Infinity War concept art.
Avengers: Infinity War had a universe-spanning adventure that featured no shortage of action set pieces. One of the highlights of the films was Thanos’ (Josh Brolin) clash with Doctor Strange, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Mantis (Pom Klementieff), Drax (Dave Bautista), Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Nebula (Karen Gillan), and Spider-Man (Tom Holland) on the planet Titan. This battle featured all of the listed heroes using almost every one of their unique abilities to stop the Mad Titan from completing his treacherous plan.
Given Doctor Strange’s mystical abilities, his attacks on Thanos were some of the most eye-popping special effects in the movie. Marvel Studios visual artist Anthony Francisco recently posted a piece of concept art from the film on Instagram that showcases one particular move from the Sorcerer Supreme that did not reach the big screen. Check out the incredible art in the post below.

Tony Stark Is Adrift In Space After His Showdown With Thanos
Following the showdown on Titan, Tony Stark and Nebula were left alone after Thanos eradicated the rest of the heroes who were present. While some assumed that the genius billionaire would find a way to return to Earth, it appears Tony is adrift in space on a vessel with limited supplies and oxygen.
Nebula Is With Tony
While Tony Stark may be lost in space with no chance of being rescued, it appears he will be accompanied by Nebula, the only other survivor of the showdown on Titan. How the two characters are getting along in what could be their final days remains unknown, though Nebula appears to be faring better than her new companion.
Scott Lang Escaped The Quantum Realm
During the first post-credits scene for Ant-Man and the Wasp, Scott Lang found himself trapped inside the Quantum Realm after his friends were erased by the Thanos snap and some speculated that the Avengers would have to rescue him. However, it appears Scott Lang managed to escape the realm on his own and brought the van containing the way to the alternate dimension with him.
Possible Time Jump
During the final moments of the new trailer, Captain America and Black Widow view a video of Scott Lang asking to be let inside Avengers headquarters. Captain America wonders if the message is old, meaning that some time may have passed since Thanos' decimation and Scott's escape from the Quantum Realm.
Hawkeye Is Definitely Ronin
After months of speculation, the Avengers: Endgame trailer essentially confirmed that Hawkeye will assume the Ronin mantle when he returns. Furthermore, Captain America line about losing family being said over footage of Clint Barton's appearance suggests that the archer's family perished in the decimation and their deaths prompted him to take on a new identity.
They Know Spider-Man Is MissingDuring the trailer, Bruce Banner can be seen assessing a list of victims of Thanos' decimation and it appears the team knows Spider-Man is among the missing. This may come as a surprise to some considering Spider-Man was with Tony Stark during the events of Infinity War.
Captain America's Winter Soldier Suit is Back
After returning in Avengers: Infinity War with a full beard and disheveled costume, Captain America will return to a more familiar look that includes the suit from The Winter Soldier.
Thanos Is Still Wearing The Burned Gauntlet
After Thanos acquired all six Infinity Stones and used them to accomplish his mission, the gauntlet he used to harness their power was severely damaged. However, it appears the Mad Titan continues to wear the worn gauntlet, perhaps in an effort to ensure no one else can wield the power of the stones and undo his actions.
The Avengers Have A Plan
Though all may seem hopeless, our heroes aren't heading into their next showdown with Thanos without a plan. Hopefully, it will work, because Steve Rogers certainly seems concerned about what they will do if the Avengers fail for a second time.
