The Infinity Theory



With the release of the Infinity War movie, there has been a major upswing on theories and confusion in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I have a few things to share, both from the comic universe and the movie universe and I hope to clear some things up. In case it would not be clear; THIS WILL CONTAIN MAJOR SPOILERS! READ ON AT YOUR OWN RISK!
  1. Pepper Potts is pregnant and lost the baby: First, we start with an simple one that doesn’t affect a lot. They have been hinting at this one for a while, making the joke in past movies (Civil War). With Ironman and Pepper getting closer, this seems a reasonable conclusion. Seeing the lost of his child will hit Tony harder than anything before and bring his change from a self-centered egotistical person to the world saving dad that RDJ is in real life.
  2. Rocket’s last standing Guardian was foretold: At the end of Guardians 2 we see a solo shot of Rocket, with a tear running down his face. This foreshadowed his being alone in this movie. Just we he found his family and even helped Thor with his issues.
  3. The Infinity Gauntlet may be broken but the stones still work: It has been confirmed that Thanos is seeing Gamora in the Soul Stone (the young Gamora cut scene) and this is after he used the gauntlet. We see Thanos fall through the space stone’s portal to escape at the end of the movie (with an end shot straight from the comic). The infinity stones still work. We already see the prototype of the gauntlet when Thor made his axe. We could easily see another one being made with the gems/stones still working. Now I believe the Russo brothers are too mindful of the “Snap the universe back” scenario and it being the comic book cop-out to fix everything. Which leads to...
  4. The Original Avengers surviving only to exchange their lives for the ones of their fallen comrades: My wife said this coming out of the theaters. It was a great observation as this would still maintain all the balance needed on the amount of heroes (Thanos is right, there are too many). It would bring emotional satisfaction and closure to the heroes of the past and bring in/back the heroes of the future. We is this being done using the Soul stone and how Gamora was exchanged to receive the stone. 
  5. The Infinity Stones/gauntlet corrupts: Absolute power corrupts absolutely. This is what Dr Strange saw in the 14 million+ futures. It wasn’t beating Thanos that was the problem, it was what is done with the stones afterwards. They cut his hand off? Great, one of them uses the gauntlet and becomes all powerful and it turns out poorly. Thor would restore his people and his father. Then he keeps using the gauntlet to fix things until it corrupts him. Dr Strange would be the Gandalf type figure; Will you not take the Ring?' 'No!' cried Gandalf, springing to his feet. 'With that power I should have power too great and terrible. And over me the Ring would gain a power still greater and, more deadly.' His eyes flashed and his face was lit as by a fire within. 'Do not tempt me! For I do not wish to become like the Dark Lord himself. Yet the way of the Ring to my heart is by pity, pity for weakness and the desire to do good. Do not tempt me! I dare not take it, not even to keep it safe, unused. The wish to wield it would be too great for my strength. I shall have such need of it. Great perils lie before me.'... Dr Strange saw his own death with the certainty of The Ancient One, he knew it was coming and that it was the only way for the world to survive. This was the only way to win. He saw Starlord/Peter Quill’s actions and knew it would happen. IT IS ALL PLANNED! He wanted to keep the Gauntlet away from everyone, even if it meant sacrificing half the life in the universe. He kept Tony alive because maybe Ironman is the savior to the universe, but not just a that moment. Maybe Tony needs some more growing to do. 
So here here are my top Five theories. We welcome thoughts and comments on this. And hey, if I am right, Russo brothers - Call me.

- Know Thy roots.

I have been an avid gamer when the NES came into town. I have followed gaming news when AOL was the internet. I love any and all games that have a great story and gameplay. I have worked in the gaming industry and have managed a video game story (successfully I might add). I have been a personal blogger for 2 years now on the site in my profile.
