The team of Marvel often share interesting details about Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame and our favourite superheroes. As audience, we get to see what they present to us for those 120+ minutes. However, a lot happens during the shooting of these films which we get to know later. The latest interesting information that has come out is that about Iron Man and Doctor Strange. The makers were planning to have a costume switch between Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man and Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange.
Yes, you read it right! Two of the most powerful Avengers of the Marvel universe were going to wear each other’s suit for Avengers: Infinity War, and only Marvel President Kevin Feige got to see it. We wonder what twist it would’ve added to the storytelling if the suit-exchange had actually happened.
As reported by cinemabland, in his podcast Fatman on Batman, Kevin Smith shared that he got a sneak peek into the preview of Avengers: Infinity War in which he has seen Robert Downey Jr floating around in Doctor Strange’s Cloak of Levitation.
Kevin said, “There’s footage or a photo of Robert Downey Jr wearing the cape that came out long before Infinity War came out. It was an early press release photo or something like that. So we know they shot it. [Marc Bernardin and I] know personally that they shot it because when the writers, McFeely and Markus, came and spoke to us at the house before they went to do the big shindig and shit for Endgame, before they left they were like ‘You wanna see something?”.
About Benedict wearing the Iron Man suit, he shared, “They pulled out the phone and literally showed us, not just a drawing, cause that’s what’s going around the internet, is there’s a drawing and sh*t – and it looks badass. But they showed us fuckin Sherlock in the Iron Man fu***n suit, man. Like wearing the goddamn suit with Tony standing next to him wearing the cape, and we were like ‘WHAT THE FUCK,’ and they were like ‘We can’t say, never tell anybody.’ Then it’s out in the world and I’m like, ‘Oh my god, we saw that fucking photo!’ It looked badass, man.”
So will the Marvel fans get to see this footage of suit-exchange between Iron Man and Doctor Strange? Well, for now, the makers don’t intend to share the footage. Thus, we have to wait till they decide to share the preview with us too!
