There's spoilers in here, don't say we didn't warn you

If you haven't seen Avengers: Infinity War yet and plan on seeing it, click away now because I have some serious spoilers for you.

OK, only those who have seen the movie and those who don't care about spoilers left, yeah? Good.

As well all know, Avengers: Infinity War is only half the story and we all have a little while to wait until we get answers to the million questions we have so far.

For example, why did Doctor Strange just happily hand over the Time Stone to Thanos. I mean, on the face of it, he did it to save Iron Man's life, which is all well and good, but surely he knew that passing over a stone so powerful it has the potential to destroy half the universe wasn't the best idea he's ever had.

Of course, fan theories have already gone into overdrive with this particular plot-line. And now one of the film's creators has spoken to tell fans not to worry - it's all part of a bigger plan.

Co-director Joe Russo took part in a Q&A at his old school Iowa City High last week, where he appeared to encourage film-fans to put two and two together.

According to The Little Hawk Student newspaper, Joe told the students: "I'm not going to say what he did but Doctor Strange...closure is given to Doctor Strange....but Doctor Strange - what did he say in the film?"

To which the students replied: "This is the only way."

Joe then asked: "What did he do before that? He saw 14 Million futures, potential futures. So maybe Doctor Strange knows something."

He was referring to the earlier scene in which Doctor Strange was able to use the Time Stone to take a little sneak peek into the future and see how all the variations could pan out. In one of the millions of possible futures he saw, there was bound to be one in which the Avengers defeat Thanos and perhaps Doctor Strange was just setting that in motion by handing over the stone.


You'll have to wait another 363 days to find out, though, as the second part of the film is set to hit cinemas on 3 May 2019.

As yet the title hasn't been released because, according to Joe, they want audiences to focus on this movie, rather than worrying ahead about what's coming next. Good luck with that, mate, it's all Marvel fans can talk about.
