With Avengers: Endgame now available on digital and DVD/Blu-ray, it’s easier to pick up on little details. The ability to pause the movie in your own home can lead to discoveries. Since the release, fans have picked up on numerous Easter eggs of all kinds. Most of these are only small aspects of the movie but are fully appreciated.
However, this also means that we can pick up on mistakes too. Of course, we are all prone to making mistakes but one fan easily caught out this one. The scene in question is just before the big battle kicks off. Despite the significance of the prop, Doctor Strange is spotted without the Eye of Agamotto. But, when preparing to fight in the next scene, Strange seems to have the artefact again.
This was spotted by the Instagram user @/ironman.tw and you can see it below:
It could have been a simple VFX error with the Eye being accidentally edited in. Although, it could have just been a different scene where Benedict Cumberbatch wore it on the set. Whichever one it was, it still shows a continuity error. In fact, it’s unclear why the Eye of Agamotto would even be in the scene. The artefact would have been useless without the Time Stone. And at this moment, the Time Stone was occupied within the Infinity Gauntlet.
It may not have been a mistake but it’s very likely. Strange could have worn the Eye to trick Thanos into thinking he still had the stone. Or, it’s just the iconic staple of the hero’s outfit and the directors wanted to make that clear.
Mistake or not, we still enjoyed Avengers: Endgame. We hope to see the Eye of Agamotto again soon in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The new movie will feature the character teaming up with Scarlett Witch to cross universes. We cannot wait!
