Why Doctor Strange Refused to Trap Thanos In A Time Loop

Doctor Strange didn't put Thanos in a time loop with the Time Stone in Avengers: Infinity War.

Even though 14,000,605 futures were considered, this choice appears to be a simple mistake.

Doctor Strange's choice to hand Thanos the Time Stone,

allowing him to wipe out half of all life in the universe,

might not have been as secure as was first believed.

Since Dormammu comes from a planet where time is understood differently,

this is the fundamental distinction between the two scenarios.

Thanos' principal objective on Titan in Infinity War is to steal the Time Stone from Strange.

Due to the need for victory,

Doctor Strange's plan to lock Thanos in a time loop may not have been as flawless as was first believed.
