Re: The Avengers 2! The Official News and Speculation Thread - Part 1
Deleted scenes aren't canon. We shouldn't have to go through all the deleted scenes that conflict with the established canon of films, even in the MCU, in order to come to that conclusion. The Mind Gem in the staff makes perfect sense, and is relatively brilliant as a set up for Thanos.
Y'know... now that I see that... I wonder if the MCU is sneaking all the gems into all the films. That'd be pretty impressive.
