Not everything from the set makes it into the final version of the movie – and sometimes even the actors end up being disappointed about it.

We could have seen Doctor Strange wearing the Iron Man suit in 'Avengers: Infinity War'... but we didn't. And it saddens not only Marvel fans, but also Benedict Cumberbatch, who appears to have been eager to see that on the big screen.

"It was an amazing moment, and I think I definitely came out of it better than 'Iron Strange' or 'Doctor Man,' the other guy, 'Strange Man.' I definitely came out of it better. I mean, having a bit of that outerwear on you, it's like, it's very, very, very cool. I would love to have seen what that combination of wizardry and that tech would do," Cumberbatch told BBC Radio's Ali Plumb.

In 'Infinity War', Tony Stark and Steven Strange meet for the first time. At some point in the movie, the two should have engaged in a duo mode, with Stark donning Strange's Levitation Cloak, and the wizard suiting up in the Iron Man armor. The mere idea has prompted a wave of fan art, but fans haven't got to see that actually happening.

To be fair, 'Infinity War' was already pretty stuffed with characters and events, so something had to be axed… but that combination of wizardry and tech, though! We feel you, Benedict.
