I've seen a lot of speculation about the Mind Gem in the staff long before the movie actually opened, and we were just looking at screenshots and wondering.
It makes sense, of course; but it's hard to reconcile with the fact that the IG was shown to be in Odin's Treasury in Thor 1. Some people try to dismiss the IG since it only shows up in a deleted scene and the art-book for the movie; but if it *is* "canon," then the IG is already in existence and in Odin's possession, so that couldn't have been the Mind Gem in Loki's staff.
