After Thor: The Dark World, Where Will Marvel Go Next?
The Avengers: The Infinity Gauntlet – May 4, 2018
Fans have been predicting this ever since Thanos reared his big purple head at the very end of the first Avengers movie (not to mention the opportunity to freeze frame Thor), but with the capstone of Phase Two featuring Earth’s mightiest heroes facing off against Ultron, Avengers 3 now appears to be the perfect time to play out the legendary Infinity Gauntlet storyline. Not only does Marvel need a way to pay off the aforementioned Mad Titan tease (beyond his presence in Guardians of the Galaxy), the post-credits sequence of Thor: The Dark World introduces the Infinity Stones to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which are, of course, vital to the Infinity Gauntlet plot. It’s possible that the studio is just using a bit of misdirection and actually has something completely different in store, but for now this seems like the logical idea.
