AVENGERS: ENDGAME - A Key Moment In The Film Was Improvised By Benedict Cumberbatch

Doctor Strange played a small, but pivotal role in Avengers: Endgame, and Marvel Studios filmmaker Scott Derrickson has now revealed that a key moment involving the Sorcerer Supreme was improvised!

In Avengers: Infinity War, Doctor Strange experienced 14,000,605 possible futures, and only one of them ended with Thanos being defeated. That was clearly the future that played out in Avengers: Endgame, and the Sorcerer Supreme alluded to this when he lifted his finger and gave Iron Man the nod that this was their one chance to end the Mad Titan.  

Now, Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson has revealed on Twitter that actor Benedict Cumberbatch told him that moment was actually improvised. 

It's a legitimate surprise, particularly as it factored into Avengers: Endgame's final battle in such a pivotal way. Many believe Stephen's guilt about what happened to Tony Stark will play a role in the events of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, especially as he essentially gave Iron Man the nod to go ahead and make the ultimate sacrifice in order to stop Thanos once and for all.

Derrickson parted ways with Marvel Studios on the sequel over "creative differences," so he won't get to tell Strange's story when he enters the Multiverse, but Sam Raimi surely has big plans for the hero.
