Default Marvel's The Infinity Gauntlet: What Do You Want To See?

Ever since we saw Thanos grinning at the audience at the end of The Avengers, fans have theorized and speculated on whether Marvel were building towards an Infinity Gauntlet movie, one of the biggest and most epic stories Marvel has ever produced. Now that Thor: The Dark World is out and we've seen it's mid-credits scene, we know that to be the case, with both the Tesseract and Aether confirmed as "Infinity Stones".

We already have a thread for that, but my question is: what do you guys want to see in the movie? Unfortunately due to characters being at other studios, and the sheer difficulty of adapting some of the characters and subplots (the Elders/Celestials/Space Gods/whatever, Nebula gaining the Gauntlet in the finale etc) a straight-up adaptation would be impossible. Which heroes do you want to see in it? Will it be the plot of Avengers 3? What scale do you want it on? Two parts or just one movie? How closely do you want it to follow the comic?

My personal opinion is that it needs to be epic - the original comic arc was crazy; when Thanos got the Gauntlet he wiped out half the Universe with a click of his fingers, caused supernovas and knocked Planet ****ing Earth out of orbit, causing earthquakes, tsunamis, half of ****ing California to break off into the ocean 2012-style and the planet be reduced to a neverending Ice Age, as it drifts further and further away from the Sun.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Sound off.

although its unlikely to happen, i would like to basically see a marvel universe vs thanos movie in avengers 3. if they can cut the deals, invite every other hero which other studios own (x-men, fantastic four, et al) for one big film

That would be very cool. Unfortunately as you said it's unlikely, and honestly I'm not sure whether a massive smorgasbord of characters in one epic movie would be the best idea, especially when they all come from different franchises and studios.

I'm with op. That Cap v Thanos scene is classic and MUST be adapted. Cap standing up to the most powerful force in the universe, Thanos breaking his shield, etc.

Other than that, I think it's also important to see him manhandling the Hulk

I prefer the continuities stay with the respective studios.

I want Marvel Studios to use the pantheon it has at its disposal for A3.

I'll agree with this as well.

As much as I'd love to see a small Spidey cameo/easter egg, I'd just prefer Avengers be what it is for at least it's initial trilogy of phases.

I want to see the battle between Thanos and Eternity's crew. If the Big G can't be freed up before then, substitute Tenebrous and Aegis in his place.

I def. want to see half the Universe wiped out right off the bat. I don't know if they should have Death as a character, that might be pushing it. I certainly want the Earth wide mayhem to be a significant part of it.

And of course, it should definitely be the plot of A3.

I want to see Mephisto. He should be depicted in John Romita Jr.'s interpretation.

Death would not detract from the film.

With a storyline where an alien tears apart reality and the universe because of infatuation, the physical presence of Death would not be pushing the suspension of disbelief: said plotline left disbelief out thru the airlock.

The destruction scale has to be huge. Antarctica being shattered and sunk will suffice.

I am curious to see how the Gauntlet will harness the power of the stones. But outside that, I would like to see Cap vs Thanos happen. I also want to see Thanos outright kill almost all of the Avengers, only for them to be resurrected in the end. If we can't get Adam Warlock to figure into the equation (I REALLY hope they bring him into the mix), but if not, I think 2nd best choice would oddly be Loki for this role. End Hiddelston's Loki in the MCU on a redemption note (but like I said, I'd rather work Adam Warlock into it instead! One of my favorites).

I don't know, Marvel's being very consistent about emphasizing that Asgardians are an advanced alien race and not gods. I think this reflects the fact that they want to keep the rules of the cinematic universe to be in someway explainable by science (science fiction). Having the embodiment of death as a character might turn off the average movie-goer that had her suspension of disbelief stretched to the limit when she started as an Iron Man fan and then was made to accept that this character exists in a world where aliens also exist.

I don't see how this is too much for someone to accept. Audiences already accepting this unlikely team and aliens. Why are gods/universal beings too much? I think it will be accepting as a natural progression of the series.

Yes to breaking the shield-it's been emphasized, subtly (an odd combination of words if I ever heard one) through both Cap's first movie and the Avengers as being unbreakable. Continue this and have this be the only time it's even dented, let alone destroyed and it will be that much more epic.

And I want the death of half the universe just like the comic panel-Thanos snaps his fingers and it happens. Make it nonchalant for him just to show how powerful he is with the gauntlet.

I think if the cosmic cube in Captain America and the Avengers is indicative of anything, it's that the Infinity Gauntlet in the MCU will be nerfed a bit. World Shattering punches? Maybe. The ability to snap half the universe out of existence? Probably not.

You're probably right, and I honestly think this is more likely then what I write earlier, but I can hope for an all-powerful slugfest, can't I?

I wouldn't have Death be an actual character, but an apparition created by Thanos' eternal love for the concept of death.

Damn that confrontation between Cap and Thanos just has to be recreated. That would be one of the most epic moments in the entire series.

I want to see Cap lift Thor's hammer in a film too.

Excuse my ignorance, I'm not up to date on the comic story arcs. Does Cap pick up the hammer? What's the story behind it? How does he do it when the Hulk couldn't?

As said previously, Rogers is worthy of the god's hammer and is able to lift it. Pretty epic character moment.

Oh okay. I assumed the Worthy schtick was just a plot point from Thor 1 and that the hammer was only accessible to Thor and only Thor.

But wasn't Malekith in TDW going to use the Aether to wipe out the entire universe, and return it to a pre-Big-Bang state?

Yes, but Malekith's Aether wasn't a one hit kill the way Thanos's IG is in the comics.
