With Marvel’s Cinematic World quickly expanding, I thought I’d take this moment to sit down and discuss the ever so present force of the Infinity Stones.
That being said, let’s look at the Infinity Stones. Thanos (a Titan) wanted all six Infinity stones (or Soul stones) in order to destroy the world and impress the Goddess of Death, with whom he’s obsessed/in love with. And she just so happens to be in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok film portrayed by Cate Blanchett. Coincidence? I think not.
Okay so what are the six stones then?
- Space Stone as the Tesseract from Captain America: First Avenger
- The Reality Stone as The Aether from Thor: The Dark World
- The Power Stone as The Orb from Guardians of The Galaxy
- The Mind Stone as Loki’s staff/Vision from The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron
- Time Stone as The Eye of Agamotto from Dr. Strange
All that’s missing is the 6th one, the Soul Stone, which many have guessed will be revealed in Thor: Ragnarok. Sadly, I fear for the life of Heimdall (played by Idris Elba) as I believe the final stone to be his eyes. The same colour as the Soul Stone and possibly the source to his powers. Plus, if you recall The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Heimdall was seemingly blind in Thor’s vision, almost as if his eyes where pulled out perhaps?
So what’s with the glove? Thanos’s glove is actually called a gauntlet for his left hand. In the first Thor we saw one in the Asgard treasure chamber along with other dangerous relics, but Thanos is strictly a lefty it seems. His gauntlet holds all the Infinity Stones, and to be honest, I think that he’ll most likely get them all at some point during Infinity Wars Part 1 & 2. Which means say bye-bye to Vision, potentially Heimdall and Dr. Strange’s powers in The Eye of Agamotto.
Does this clear some things up? Are you excited for the next Avengers film?
