The X-Men Villain reference in Avengers: Infinity War
One of Doctor Strange’s popular spells used for summoning the strength of a powerful mystical entity is where the reference comes in. The streaming red bands of energy produced as a result are called the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak. Those are used to restrain Thanos for a while. The X-Men Villain Juggernaut in the comics also has his source of power in the Cyttorak. It will be interesting to see when and how this connection would be explored in the future. This may be a way to incorporate Juggernaut into the MCU.
