SDCC 2017: Each Infinity Stone has a specific role in Avengers: Infinity War


Each of the six Infinity Stones has a different part to play in Avengers: Infinity War!

Although Avengers: Infinity War will finally pit the MCU heroes against Thanos, we cannot forget that this massive event revolves around the six, elusive Infinity Stones. All of them (save for the Soul Stone) have popped up in different MCU films as macguffins. Now, they’ll take center stage, and each stone will also have a specific purpose in the story.

Screen Rant caught up with co-director Joe Russo at San Diego Comic-Con where he talked about managing the stones and the characters:

"“Each gem has its own special power. We had to put a lot of thought into how we would represent those powers so it was clear to the audience. Not only are you dealing with a lot of characters, you are also dealing with the stones, the gems, and there’s a lot of them.”"

Russo then explained that each stone including the Reality Stone will be used in a particular way:

"“So for people to keep track of all of it, we had to get really specific. I won’t divulge how we use the Reality Stone, but we do use it.”"

Fans have been waiting to see how the stones will be used together with the Infinity Gauntlet, but it makes sense they’ll still be used individually at times.

The biggest mystery is how the Reality Stone (or Aether) will be utilized in the film. The stone, which was introduced back in Thor: The Dark World, exists in a liquid form and can transform matter. One can only guess what Thanos (or anyone else for that matter) will do with it. We still have a while before the first film arrives, which leaves us with plenty of time to speculate.

Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018, and the Untitled Avengers Sequel will be released on May 3, 2019.
