Since Avengers 4 is going to be something we are not prepared for in any way, we can actually expect the unexpected. Almost everything that has been teased till now, everything that was set up for the future movies to adhere to in the movies that have come out till now have to come to a conclusion. But since the magnitude of the film is going to be humongous, we could expect some unexpected arrivals in the movie. After all, Thanos could not just be the only big Titan to take part in the film.
The movie is going to be really stuffed and it will have to be longer than Avengers: Infinity War, so it could do justice to everyone and everything. While the living characters are going to unite, they will obviously be successful to bring back the ones who were disintegrated. So there are going to be just so many Superheroes in the film that we might even lose count. You could imagine that Thanos will be all alone against an army of Superheroes, so we would need some more characters to fit in as well.
It has been revealed to us that in a key scene, Doctor Strange is going to go up against a huge CGI character similar to what happened in his debut movie where he fought Dormammu. So, this brought in a thought that the Living Tribunal might be that insanely powerful Cosmic character who gets featured in Avengers 4.
The Living Tribunal is an immensely powerful humanoid cosmic entity whose main function is to safeguard and protect the entire multiverse. He has existed as long as the universe itself and defends the multiverse against an imbalance of mystical forces. He is also responsible to maintain a balance between the good and evil that resides throughout the Universe and his judgment, in any case, is the final judgment. This individual does not possess any alternate counterpart as he is the only one of his kind in the entire multiverse.
He can obliterate an entire inhabited planet with just one blow if the planet has an imbalance in the mystical force. He can turn a living star into a supernova with nothing but a single bolt force. Tribunal established himself as a being with 3 faces and all these faces represent the three sides of the Tribunal’s personality. Its front face represents equity, the partially hooded face on its left represents just revenge and the fully hooded face on its right side represents necessity. Having this individual in the MCU would be even bigger than seeing Thanos in Infinity War.
So, a new theory which has come into play claims that all the disintegrated characters are actually trapped in the Soul World and Doctor Strange has been snatched from there by the Living Tribunal, who wants to talk to the future Sorcerer Supreme about the fate of the Universe. Here’s how the theory goes:
“So here’s the deal; the Living Tribunal explains that Thanos’ snap and its aftermath (collapsed societies, intergalactic anarchy, etc.) have done too much damage to the universe, and he thinks the best bet is to destroy it and create a new universe. He ominously challenges Strange to convince him otherwise.”
Well, it could be possible that the Living Tribunal does make his debut in MCU in Avengers 4, but no one can confirm it unless they watch the film. If this rumored scene does end up taking place, then we could be sure of the fact that it will look insanely cool and may become a huge iconic moment of the entire MCU. This will be the second time where Strange manages to save the planet without anyone else knowing about it. Only this time, he will save the entire Universe as well by convincing the Living Tribunal for letting the Avengers do their thing.
Rest we will find out when Avengers 4 hits the theatres on May 3, 2019. Here’s the official Synopsis:
“A culmination of 22 interconnected films the fourth installment of the Avengers saga will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it.”
