Default The Role of the Infinity Stones in Ragnarok

So there are two potential Infinity Stones in play here:

- The Tesseract, which is currently locked away in the weapons vault on Asgard

- The Soul Stone, which is presumably with Hela

What kind of role will these objects play in the film? Could we see a showdown between two Infinity Stones for the first time ever?

Hela should have the Soul stone somewhere and it will probably be the main focus. I can see a credit scene involving the tesseract being taken.

You forgot the Time stone since Strange will be in the movie. Thor may ask him a question about the stones.

Don't forget that with Odin, Thor and Loki all absent, Hela presumably has control of Asgard throughout much of the film. Does that imply that she also has control of the Tesseract? Or did Thor and Loki manage to remove it before she got to it? Or maybe she hands it over to Thanos? I think the whereabouts of the Tesseract will definitely come into play at some point during Ragnarok.

Thing is will Strange HAVE the Time stone WITH him?

I think both are going to have a decent role but mainly the Soul Stone since it's the one that hasn't appeared yet. I think Hela probably has it in her possession and that's also why she is so insanely powerful. She is probably going to lose it somehow after the big finale.

And i could see the Tesseract/aka Space Stone also being used to trap some of the big villains. Opening some portal or something to get rid of Surtur and probably having Odin sacrificing himself at the same time.

Or Hela attacks Asgard and goes after the tesseract in order to open a portal so Surtur can come to Asgard and lay waste to everything. And i say this because Heimdall has taken off with the sword that opens the Bifrost and by that making it harder to bring in a army or something like that.

Judging by the credit scene I say yes. Unless Strange refilling the beer was some illusion.

I also don't believe he will leave it unprotected. It will be safer around his neck than locked away.

I can't remember, was he wearing the necklace in the mid credit scene?

I don't see why he'd need the Eye of Aggamoto just to refill some drinks. Pretty sure magic can create or transmute matter just fine, especially on such a small scale.

Strange wasn't wearing the Eye in the end credit scene with Thor. Makes me think like in some of the comics, he doesn't always wear the Eye

What is the Odinforce is from an infinity stone and no one other than Odin (or the 'true' ruler of Asgard) knows this?
Maybe Heimdal also knew, as well as Hela?

Far out, but interesting imo.

I'm thinking that perhaps this movie will have none of the stones. This could be totally stand alone. But I guess some kind of tie in to Infinity War is more probable.

Kevin Feige has already confirmed that this movie will have the biggest impact leading into Infinity War.

Ragnarok has to tie in to IW. It's the last cosmic movie before it.
It wouldn't be wise or smart not too pave the path for the following movie. GOTG2 was different because James Gunn always was adamant the it was going to be more of a self contained thing. Ragnarok is different i think. And i am also pretty sure that Kevin Feige hinted at a connection between both movies.

Yep. I'm sure it's even been called the direct lead in to IW, implying that the start of IW picks up directly after the end of Ragnarok and events that occur in Ragnarok will directly effect the events of IW, similar to how TWS was the biggest lead in to AoU with the collapse of SHIELD, e.t.c in phase 3.

It's a certainty that at least one Infinity Stone has to feature in Ragnarok, even if they decide to leave the reveal of the Soul Stone to IW, there's still the Tesseract hanging around in Odin's vault, and with Odin gone that means the whereabouts of the Tesseract has to come into play somehow.
