The screenwriters of Avengers: Endgame have revealed the
hidden meaning behind Doctor Strange’s plan in Infinity
War
.

Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely penned the script for the
previous instalment in the Avengers saga, as well as last
month’s concluding chapter. 

Speaking to
The Hollywood Reporter
, the pair have now confirmed that
Doctor Strange (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) knew what would
need to happen in Endgame for the Avengers to win. Fans had
speculated that, although being told there was only one outcome in
over 14 million that would lead to victory, that perhaps wasn’t
true.

“The only way this works is if Tony [Stark aka Iron Man]
dies,” Markus and McFeely confirmed. “If you go back and
watch Infinity War, when [Strange] says ‘one’,
Benedict… is just choked on emotion. Now that you know the end,
go back and watch that moment. He means, ‘You’re going to have
to die, Tony’.”

Meanwhile, directors Joe and Anthony Russo
recently revealed that Endgame was originally going to have
a different Black Widow storyline
. Many ideas were cut from the
script, according to the duo, including one that focused on the
character (played by Scarlett Johansson) and her role within
society after the five-year jump and half of the population
disappearing into dust.

In other MCU news, Tom
Holland struggled to explain a timeline plothole in Avengers:
Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home in a recent interview.

The actor and the cast of the new Spider-Man movie appeared
on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this week, following
the release of its new clip and trailer
.
