In a recent post, a new theory explains the 1 in 14,000,000 chance where the Avengers defeated Thanos in Avengers: Endgame.
The post in question talked about Doctor Strange’s decision to give Thanos the Time Stone at length. At first, the theory talks about the odds that Ant-Man would have ended up stuck in the quantum realm at the exact moment Thanos wiped out half the universe. It then talked about how Doctor Strange would have no idea that this would have happened but knew that he had to give the stone away at a certain time:
So I think this chance all comes down to where Ant-Man was when the snap happened, I know the quantum realm had no effect on whether he was snapped or not but as we know, the snap is what got him stuck there, and the chances of the snap happening in the 10 seconds that Scott’s in the quantum realm is unbelievable
when you think about it from strange’s perspective this means he has no idea why they win in one of the 14 million futures, but he knows in the future where they win he gives away the time stone and having tested 14 million futures where he did and didn’t do that, he also knew he had to give it away at a certain time
The theory then goes on, stating that the 1 in 14,000,000 chance had less to do with direct actions as it did with timing this one action perfectly. It then went on to allege that Doctor Strange’s actions had less to do with saving Tony Stark as it did making sure that things happened in this specific timeframe:
this means strange gave away the time stone at the perfect moment that would make the snap happen while scott was in the quantum realm
I personally believe this because giving away the time stone was something strange had total control over, as he kept it super hidden until he needed it
Also keep in mind strange only would’ve known the winning outcome was made by the right action at the right time, he had no idea what happened in wakanda or why doing what he did worked, it wasn’t about saving Tony’s life or the avengers overcoming a probability of 1/14,000,000 – It was about things happening in a very very specific timeframe
From the look of things, this fan has a very specific idea as to what Doctor Strange was planning against Thanos.
What do you all make of this theory? Do you think that it was a simple case of careful timing? Did Doctor Strange do something that would give the Avengers a chance against Thanos in the long term? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

What We Learned About ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ At CCXP
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios shared some brand new information on their highly-anticipated sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The film, which is the follow-up to 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming marks the return of Tom Holland as Peter Parker following the release of Avengers: Endgame and will also feature the cinematic debut of Mysterio, who is portrayed by Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal.
Here are some of the things we have learned about Spider-Man: Far From Home following its presentation at the 2018 Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil. Click "Next" to find out.
1. Peter Parker & Michelle Will Be Involved Romantically
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw Peter crushing on Liz Allan (Laura Harrier), who has since moved away from Queens, New York with her mother following the fallout of her father Adrian Toomes' (Michael Keaton) crimes as the Vulture. With Liz now out of the picture, we have Michelle Jones (Zendaya) also known as "MJ" that Peter has his eyes on. In Homecoming, Michelle seemed to tow the line between cold and friendly to Peter, with hints that she was romantically interested in him the whole time.
Now, it looks like Peter and Michelle have since grown closer with one another following the events of Homecoming. Perhaps their romantic connection will play a significant role in Peter's motivations in Far From Home.
2. Aunt May Supports Her Nephew As Spider-Man In Far From Home
Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) found out about her beloved nephew Peter's secret at the end of Homecoming. Now that she's aware that he continues his hero work as our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, she is also fully-supportive of him despite the fact that he continues to put himself in danger.
3. Happy Hogan & Aunt May Share A Romantic Affair
This one comes as a bit of a surprise. Based off of information from CCXP, it appears that Aunt May is romantically involved with none other than Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). This certainly won't be awkward for Peter.
4. Spider-Man & Mysterio Start Are Brought Together By Nick Fury
The narrative for Far From Home will begin with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) bringing Spider-Man and Quentin Blake/Mysterio together for a mission in which they must hunt down the Elementals. Mysterio has some knowledge about the Elementals and wants to defeat them to make the world safer.
The unlikely duo has been described to have a "brothers in arms" dynamic. What could possibly go wrong?
5. Spider-Man & Mysterio's Relationship Is The Central Focus
During the presentation at CCXP, Gyllenhaal revealed that Far From Home will be a unique Spider-Man film due to the relationship between the beloved hero and Mysterio:
"The central point of the film is the relationship of Peter with Mysterio, which is a completely new dynamic. Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man. There's no one more professional than him."
Seeing Holland and Gyllenhaal acting alongside eachother will certainly be a highlight.
