You remember that time loop scene? Dormamu, I’ve come to bargain.
OK, so the end game…Thanos snaps his fingers 1/2 of the living creatures in the universe die. https://wordpress.com/post/ihavebetterthingstodo.wordpress.com/2566 Remember that the last thing Dr. Strange says is that it’s the End Game? Well, what if there isn’t an End?
So he sets a loop. Then he goes back to the loop with Dormamu. This would be a nested loop…
Strange: Dormamu, I’ve come to bargain
Dormamu: What? We already went through this!
S: Well I have some new information
S: There’s this guy who thinks he rules the Universe. I thought YOU ran the universe…
D: I do
S: Well this guy, Thanos, is not the brilliant tactician that I am, so he certainly can’t stand up to you, right?
D: Of course not
S: So if you want to keep your reputation, take out this pretender to the throne…Thanos.
D: You know where he is?
S: Of course!
D: Tell me!
S: I’ll do better, I’ll take you!
S: Dormamu? Thanos. Thanos? Dormamu.
Strange transfers the infinity stone to Thanos, but with the loop intact and Thanos and Dormamu fight to the end of time.
Poof! *Dr. Strange laughing like Vincent Price heard in background*
