Each Of The Six Infinity Stones Will Create An “Emotional” Moment In Avengers: Infinity War

“Before creation itself, there were six singularities…”

As any Marvel fan will tell you, those singularities were later forged into cosmic ingots known as Infinity Stones. There are six in total: Mind, Reality, Space, Power, Time and the elusive Soul Stone, whereabouts unknown, and they’ll form the basis of Thanos’ quest in Avengers: Infinity War.

In fact, we understand Joe and Anthony Russo’s Herculean event movie will largely be structured around that intergalactic mission, so don’t be fooled into thinking that the Mad Titan is just another bland, uninspired villain. Hell, you could even go so far as to say that he’s a primary character of Infinity War, a movie that has since been described as his one true origin story.

But when it comes to the Infinity Stones, in particular, screenwriter Stephen McFeely has warned fans that each gem will lead to a heart-wrenching moment which will, through time, have far-reaching implications for the MCU.

They’re still spread out. Remember, one of our jobs — we’re big structure guys. So if you go back and look at Winter Soldier and Civil War particularly, they are — whether you like the movies are not — they’re pretty well structured. Big choices have been made. We had to do the same thing here, and yet, we had six MacGuffins. It can be relentless, if you do this right.

He continued:

Which means, every time you collect [an Infinity Stone] — I don’t mean to get into the screenwriting weeds — but every time you collect one, it can’t just be a check mark. It has to do something ‘characterful.’ It’s got to move the plot forward, but it also has to [have] stakes, and cost, for literal characters at the time, so that it’s not just a shopping spree. And I think we’ve done that. And boy, we’re going to wrench some emotion out of each and every one of those moments that we can.

Having collaborated with the Russo Brothers on Winter Soldier and Civil War, McFeely and Christopher Markus know a thing or two about the inner workings of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so we should heed their comments about the emotional, gut-wrenching moments set to come.

And it all kicks off on April 27th, so it should come as no surprise that Avengers: Infinity War is already breaking records left, right and center.
