The Avengers: Inifinity War

April 24th, 2018


The Avengers: Infinity War

Everyone appreciates a rockstar team: Peanut butter and jelly, Tom & Jerry, NSYNC. But when a team of your favorite superheroes bands together, there is nothing like it. There have been over 18 different Marvel movies and all plot lines will intersect in The Avengers: Infinity War.
The Avengers: Infinity War brings together more protagonists than any other Marvel movie. Together, the Avengers are on a quest to thwart Thanos, a humongous villain wielding a magical, metal glove in search of six, powerful infinity stones. If Thanos obtains all gems, he will be unstoppable.
Before you rush to the theaters, here’s a refresher on what do you need to know going into The Avengers: Infinity War.



1. Thanos


Thanos appears at the end of the credits of the first Avengers movie. He tasks Loki, Thor’s brother, to lead an army against Earth’s superheroes. After Loki fails, Thanos appears in Guardians of the Galaxy where he assigns Ronan the Accuser to snag a mysterious Orb. Fortunately, Thanos loses once again. Thanos then decides to take domination into his own hands and comes to our world to collect the infinity stones, which is where The Avengers: Infinity War picks up.

2. Infinity Stones

Infinity stones are an important part of the new Avengers movie. Here are a few reminders of where we’ve seen them before. In Guardians of the Galaxy, The Collector explains that the stones date back to creation itself and are composed of cosmic power that can only be handled by people of extraordinary strength. These stones have different purposes. They are:
-Space Stone: Opens portals in space show possible visions of the future, and fuel dangerous weapons.
-Power Stone: This stone can wipe out an entire planet’s civilization.
-Reality Stone: Brings the dead back to life.
-Time Stone: Give the wielder control over time.
-Mind Stone: This stone allows the holder to control others.
-Soul Stone: This is the only stone that has not been introduced in the Marvel movies. Noone quite knows the purpose of it or the powers it holds, but we might soon figure it out in the upcoming movie.

3. Where does The Avengers: Infinity War pick up?

Each stone is located in a different movie.
1. Loki holds the space stone and the collector is assumed to have the reality stone.
2. The power stone is being guarded by space cops
3. Doctor Strange has the time stone housed in an amulet.
4. The Mind stone is embedded into the forehead of, Vision, an Avenger.
5. As for the Soul stone, it’s hard to know where it’s located. There are rumors it is in Wakanda, the high tech African country.
The Avengers follows Thanos in pursuit of each of the stones. In order to protect the entire universe, The Avengers team up to save civilization as they know it.
When it comes to a movie with so many characters, it can be overwhelming to keep up. This refresher provides general knowledge to prepare you for this weekend! Buy your tickets at Stars and Stripes Movie Drive-In Movie Theatre in New Braunfels.
