    Yeah you could say pretty much, in a sense, a lot of the movies have been Thanos Quest. Avengers was Thanos Quest. And GOTG was definitely going to be Thanos Quest.

    I also don't think we can really match the Infinity Stones to the Infinity Gems. it's obviously not as clear cut as that. The fact the Aether is a fluid substance rather than an actual stone just shows how different these things are from the Infinity Gems. It's the same basic concept but it's different.

    Captain America wasn't able to assist Thor because they were going from dimension to dimension, and when he spent some time on earth it didn't take place for too long, Cap wouldn't have time to reach there, if anything Captain America: Winter Soldier will explain why SHIELD didn't assist Tony in Iron Man 3

    I think that'd be too much of a stretch. Bucky is a victim of far more terrestrial (and maybe even real-world) mind control methods, Manchurian Candidate-style. And putting the Mind Stone on Earth some time during WWII and/or The Cold War would make this planet needlessly overcrowded with Infinity Stones....first HYDRA, then SHIELD already have one (the Tesseract) in their possession, now you're going to put another one into human hands? Don't think so.

    I think it's far more likely that the Eye of Agomotto, or whatever Dr. Strange artefact ends up being an infinity stone, is the soul stone rather than the reality stone. All of the infinity stones can comfortably exist in a science fiction setting except for the soul stone, which is where they would probably need to bring magic into it. Plus the Soul Stone is the one Dr. Strange actually possessed in the comics.

    Yeah but you might be forgetting about Adam Warlock. Adam and the soul stone are like peanut butter and jelly.

    Just look at them together. ^
    They make such a great couple.

    So my new thoughts after seeing TDW:
    If the stones have specific forces the Tesseract is Space, Aether is Reality. The movie makes several mentions to "reality being altered" and nothing led me to believe the stone was related to "Power" except for it being red. But the tesseract is blue and had really nothing to do with Minds.

    Still no idea what the GotG stone is. Maybe the trailer will give us a clue.

    I like the idea of the GotG McGuffin not being a stone (again), but some kind of map to one. It would help to make these movies feel less repetitive

    Nope, I just don't think an Adam Warlock movie is all that likely, and I noticed he's been left out of GotG (at least officially)

    Although I can't see them doing Thanos/Infinity gauntlet without Warlock, I still think if an infinity stone shows up in Dr. Strange, the soul gem is the most likely

    Yeah but what about the sequel?

    Magus sounds like the perfect villain for GotG 2 in phase 3.

    After Phase 1 was centered around the Tesseract and after seeing Thor:TDW, does anyone think The Aether will continue to show up in Phase 2? The Collector is in GotG, will the Aether have something to do with A:AoU?

    Was it officially said the Aether was the power stone? Because based off what Malekith was trying to do, it appeared more to be the reality stone. He did keep saying that he was going to rewrite the universe. That sounds more reality stone to me. In Thanos quest, the Collector had the Reality Gem in his possession, and given that this stone ends up with him, I tend to think it is the reality stone.

    Didn't Scarjo say that while IM3 and TDW took place 6ish months after Avengers, C:TW took place 2 years after Avengers?

    The title of the thread is a spoiler : /

    So thanks for spoiling it for me with a thread title.

    Also, that was one of the worst mid credit scenes and any scene period in all of the Marvel films. It was so out of place and really awful.

    You might want to rethink that, after TDW. Not saying that Warlock will actually show up in GOTG, but there's a very definite, very specific, and very blatant easter egg laser-pointing directly at Adam Warlock in the TDW movie.

    Warlock's cocoon is on open display in The Collector's, er, collection.

    Cobie said that CATWS takes place immediately after The Avengers. So who ya gonna believe? :oldrazz:

    Yeah. I really gotta imagine its the Reality Stone.

    lol okay so apparently they are specific forces but not accurately color coded. What does that leave us with?

    Space Stone - The Tesseract - Blue

    Reality Stone - The Aether - Red

    Time Stone - ? - ?

    Soul Stone - ? - ?

    Mind Stone - ? - ?

    Power Stone - ? - ?

    Green, Violet, Orange, Yellow

    I gotta assume the GotG one is considered Purple and it must have something to do with Ronan the Accuser. He totes around a hammer called "The Universal Weapon." Sounds like it could be Infinity based. That maybe the stone seen in the GotG banner is what powers his hammer. Then my guess is perhaps "power" or "time."

    So on another note, how long before people start griping "UGH, ANOTHER infinity Macguffin? Couldn't think of anything more creative than that Marvel?"

    As long as they keep them at 5 i don't mind, actually like them as it is, remind me of the Horcruxes, but if the quest for them was longer.

    For sure. And I think JK Rowling wouldve made the quest longer if she had thought of doing so sooner. I do love that she made (probably retconned) Tom Riddle's diary as a horcrux. That was awesome.

    But yeah, infinity gems. The OG horcruxes. Keep them at 5 though? There will be 6 total. Just 4 more to discover. And 4 macguffins out of like 8 movies isn't so bad at all.

    Ah, so the Tesseract is indeed the Space Stone. Good to hear some of us were right, and makes perfect sense.
