"So, there have been other versions of that rescue. Some were just too awesome (and too long to hold on to). But one can still dream,' said the writers in a tweet. The picture attached shows Benedict Cumberbatch wearing partial Iron Man suit, with Robert Downey Jr next to him. The armor seems to cover the torso of Cumberbatch, with a suit of motion capture visible below.
The scene at issue was the one in which Spider-Man and Iron Man attempted to rescue Doctor Strange from the ship of Ebony Maw. It confirms concept art previously released showing Doctor Strange battling villains wearing the Iron Man suit, while Tony Stark wore the Doctor's cloak. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo responded to the post and wrote, "The best one to have made the film ... I think ..."
In February, visual development artist Phil Saunders from Marvel Studios uploaded more of the scene's concept art to Instagram.

Check out my friend and colleague @johnstaubart ‘s Instagram for keyframes of “Iron Strange” and Tony wearing the cloak for a taste of how cool this cross-over team-up could have been. #avengers #avengersinfinitywar #mcu #ironstrange #ironman #marvel #marvelstudios #marvelvisdev #conceptart #drstrange
Avengers: Infinity War was released in 2018, and worldwide grossed more than $2 billion. Its follow-up, Avengers: Endgame, became the highest ever grossing film. Iron Man, after being killed in Endgame, is rumored to make a cameo appearance in this year's Black Widow film. In the meantime, Doctor Strange has been announced in the Madness Multiverse, with Director Sam Raimi on board and Scarlet Witch being promoted to a strong supporting role.
