So he tells Odin about this and Odin fears the worse. He explains to us that before the universe there was darkness, and it has survived. That darkness is the entity that was turned into the infinity gems and Thanos is comming for the last of them in Odin´s vault.
Something like that
Nah. Thanos is in gotg. There is no reason for things like this to be happening this early. Especially since the "build up", if any, would be for Age of Ultron. The Thanos and infinity Gem stuff probably won't really fully come into fruitation until gotg. It's the dark elves, Thanos doesn't NEED to be the force pushing the chaos in the 9 realms. It's too much of an arc being crammed into one movie, where said arc is going to conclude by Avengers 3. It's too much.
