Doctor Strange is forced to live in a world where his former friend turned into an uber-powerful and near-omnipotent villain. He spends most of the Multiverse of Madness trailer trudging around different locations by himself. We presume that because Tony Stark is no longer around, he either doesn’t have access to advanced technology like the Q-space transitions or doesn’t have an ally who could lend him a helping hand as Iron Man did during Avengers: Endgame in resolving time travel issues. Because of this, it’s improbable that Dr. Stephen Strange will be able to crack the concept of time travel in one sitting the way he did in Avengers: Endgame back in 2016.
Vision Echoed Multiverse Is A Dangerous Place
Given how many storylines it had to cover, Avengers: Endgame didn’t focus on the specific details related to how Iron Man got the Infinity Stones so easily. Thankfully, as an interconnected cinematic universe, Marvel Studios can delve further into its vast catalog of projects. Thus, it might catalyze some more information about the same in its next film. In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ trailer, Doctor Strange asks Wanda Maximoff what she knows about the multiverse. Surprisingly, she reveals that Vision thought that it was a dangerous place.
Given the fact that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is known for making sure each film plays into a larger story and there are many political aspects involved, it wouldn’t be farfetched to imagine that Vision would want to discuss plots for another movie with Iron Man. Of course, there is no guarantee. But if the two were close before Vision’s demise after Avengers: Infinity War, then they may have been introduced sooner than we expected.
Tony Combined Innovation With Resources To Create AI Programs
It’s no surprise that Tony Stark is a huge fan of time travel stories. He’s an inventor, billionaire, and futurist after all. Combining his tenacity for innovation with the resources he has, he managed to explore wild ideas. One of them is time travel, just in case they were feasible. At first, this didn’t look like a necessity because he wasn’t exactly keen on taking over the company after Howard had died. But later decided to put Pepper Potts in charge of running operations instead so that he could spend more time with his beloved AI program, J.A.R.V.I.S., in his workshop where he would often work on building small robots for fun.
That being said, Iron Man potentially eliminated a lot of other factors as to whether time travel is possible in Avengers: Endgame. When Captain America, Black Widow, and Ant-Man appear from their home in Stark’s block party, Iron Man shares a conversation with them, even if his initial response does sound hesitant about the idea. However, he does seem well-versed about the dangers involved with performing time travel.
Tony And Vision’s Relationship
It’s easy to forget that Iron Man and Vision have a relationship that dates back longer than most of them. J.A.R.V.I.S., the AI of Tony Stark’s first heart-powered armor, was unmistakably the billionaire’s most trusted ally. It’s heartbreaking that they never got to see each other before Tony’s death at the Avengers: Endgame. Moreover, based on what Wanda echoed in Doctor Strange 2‘s trailer, it looks like the duo spent a handsome amount of time together on top of Ultron’s defeat.
