With just 1 week to go to the massive Marvel’s Infinity War, I sure am getting excited! There have been tons of rumors for at least a year and we still really don’t know what to expect other than the epic-ness that is MCU movies.
With a movie this big and a villain as powerful as Thanos, I know it is pretty much a given at least a few of the original Avengers will bit the dust. From the rumors, the front runners to die seem to be Tony Stark and Steve Rogers with Vision closely behind. While this doesn’t mean someone else will not take on the mantles of Iron Man and Captain America – this happened several times in the comic books – it will certainly be sad to say goodbye to them.
One of the things that is going to be amazing is seeing all the characters interact with each other – even the Guardians of the Galaxy are in the mix making this movie truly epic. We’ve seen bits and pieces in the clips Marvel has released either in the trailers or elsewhere, but there are bound to be some really great moments.
Of course the battle for the Infinity Stones is going to be major and appears to come to a head in Wakanda, rumored to be the location of the previously unseen Soul Stone. As Dr. Strange’s Sanctum is obviously damaged in a trailer, it is a pretty safe bet to say at last part of the battle will take place in New York – my guess is it will start there with Thanos’ Black Order of villains going after the Eye of Agamotto Strange wears with the Time Stone inside it.
The other stones are scattered around the universe:
- Time Stone: In Dr Strange’s Eye of Agamotto, Earth
- Space Stone: Inside the Tesseract which Loki liberated from the vault in Thor: Ragnarok
- Power Stone: In the vault of Nova Corps, Guardians of the Galaxy
- Reality Stone: Given to the Collector at the end of Thor: The Dark World
- Mind Stone: In Vision’s forehead, Earth
- Soul Stone: Unknown, speculated to be in Wakanda, Earth
With at least 2 of the stones on Earth, it is no wonder Thanos is here to get them with maximum devastation while he is at it.
The bigger question is probably who is going to survive the carnage. Only 1 week to go before we find out.
