The Marvel Cinematic Universe has so far unveiled five of its famous Infinity Stones – namely Space, Mind, Reality, Power, and thanks to Doctor Strange, Time – and it seems the sixth and final cosmic ingot isn’t too far away.
For those keeping track, the all-powerful Soul gem is the final piece of the puzzle, and according to MCU veteran Chris Hemsworth, it’ll be unveiled “real soon.” The Thor: Ragnarok star was in attendance at Australia’s Supernova Comic-Con over the course of the weekend, and Reddit user ‘lawrensaw’ has now relayed a series of intriguing details relating to Ragnarok and the strenuous relationship between Thor and his unruly God of Mischief, Loki.
Throughout the Thor saga, Chris Hemsworth’s Norse god has fought tirelessly to keep his step-sibling on the straight and narrow – largely to no avail. But it seems that with the release of Thor: Ragnarok, viewers will see a whole new side to Thor and Loki’s sibling bond, which stems from Hemsworth and writer-director Taika Waititi decision to take Marvel’s God of Thunder in a new direction following the release of The Dark World.
That’s a change of tact that really shines through the threequel’s spellbinding first trailer, and it seems Waititi and his team are embracing Thor’s more zany nature with arms wide open. As for the Soul gem, it’s worth noting that Marvel still has Spider-Man: Homecoming releasing on July 7th. Perhaps The Vulture has been harnessing an Infinity Stone to wage war on Peter Parker? Time will tell.
“Before creation itself, there were six singularities. Then the universe exploded into existence, and the remnants of these systems were forged into concentrated ingots… Infinity Stones.” Will Thor: Ragnarok herald the sixth and final of those mystical entities? We’ll find out when Taika Waititi’s actioner descends into theaters on November 3rd.
