Infinity stones are singularities in the form of gems in the Marvel Universe which are older than the universe. They’ve popped up in Marvel movies since the beginning, encouraging many to keep a list of where the stones have ended up. If you haven’t been doing so, here you go! (Spoilers follow for all Marvel movies, including Dr. Strange.)
The Space Stone appeared as the Tesseract in Captain America: The First Avenger. The small, blue box was stolen by Red Skull and later found by SHIELD. Loki then stole it in The Avengers and used it to open a portal to let the Chitauri aliens invade Earth. It is now stored in Asgard.
In The Avengers, the Mind Stone appeared in Loki’s staff, which was given to him by Thanos so Loki could lead the Chitauri army. He was stopped and the staff was given to SHIELD. HYDRA took control of SHIELD in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the staff was given to Baron von Strucker, who used it to give Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver their powers. The stone was placed in Vision’s in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The Reality Stone, or Aether, was discovered in Thor: The Dark World. The Dark Elves tried to use it to return the universe to eternal darkness. They were stopped and the stone went to the Collector.
The Power Stone was in the orb found by Peter Quill in Guardians of the Galaxy. After Ronan had it, it was locked up in Nova Corps.
The Time Stone is in the Eye of Agamotto that Dr. Strange used to manipulate time. He eventually placed it back in Kamar-Taj.
The Soul Stone’s whereabouts have yet to be revealed. They will most likely be disclosed during the much anticipated Avengers: Infinity War.
When you think about iconic movie theme songs, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, or even Superman come to mind. Even if you haven’t watched these movies, the theme songs are probably familiar. The same cannot be said about Marvel movies. Trying to remember the theme song to Captain America or Thor is as pointless as trying to pick up Mjolnir.
Perhaps the directors want the audience to be focused on the storyline rather than the music. However, wouldn’t Marvel like to gain a lot of money from making 15 different theme songs and selling them on iTunes?
There was one time Marvel came up with music that not only had the audience moving in its seats during the movie, but long after as well. While its songs weren’t written specifically for the movie, the playlist featured in Guardians of the Galaxy was a hit from the start.
Marvel has the capability to pull off another musical triumph like Guardians of the Galaxy. Only time will tell if they try again, or give all their focus to the epic fight scenes.
The Joker was only meant to be a short lived character, but the writer brought him back after seeing potential his potential. He became the most renowned Batman villain ever.
Curious about my secret identity? Well here’s a hint. My favorite color is the color of Dr. Manhattan.
