Do you want to see Thor: The Dark World in a completely spoiler free state? Well, if that's the case, you've already read too far. Jump out of this article now if you want to remain completely pure for its November 8th premiere!
OK, so last week we gave a rather detailed run-down of the mid and post-credits sequence in Thor: The Dark World. You can jump over to here to check them out in their entirety, while I'll briefly explain them below. The first mid-credits sequence shows Lady Sif and Volstagg bringing "The Aether" to The Collector, who is played by The second sequence features Thor and Jane snogging on a London doorstep.
Screenrant recently caught up with Marvel President of Production Kevin Feige to ask what these extra scenes meant for the future of the MCU, especially regarding the possibility of seeing the Infinity Gauntlet War. He responded:
I don't know that I would spell it out that clearly, necessarily, but certainly fans of the comics could surmise that all of this is leading somewhere. That Joss' decision to have Thanos turn around and smile to the audience at the end of Avengers – it was always the plan to show that the Tesseract was indeed an infinity stone, as was the Aether. A lot of that will tie first into Guardians of The Galaxy which comes out next year and then where it goes from there we'll see... I would not necessarily attribute them based on colors, because you’re close but you’re not 100% right on what each one is... [but] yes, the MacGuffin of Guardians certainly plays into MacGuffins from the past.
So there you have it. Of course, the quote features the customary ambiguity of most announcements concerning future Marvel movies, but I think there's plenty there for major fans to think about.
What do you think? Are we about to see the Infinity Gauntlet on the big screen? Let us know below.
