– Thanos Infinity Stones in Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron –
The filmmakers explain the importance of the Infinity Stones in this featurette…Since the filmmakers have been building the Marvel Cinematic Universe they have also been building to the idea of Thanos and his Infinity Stones. The Infinity Stones, also known as the Infinity Gems, are six immensely powerful objects tied to different aspects of the universe, created by the Cosmic Entities. Each of the stones possesses unique capabilities that have been enhanced and altered by various alien civilizations through the millennia. Only beings of immense power can wield the stones, such as when the Celestials used the Orb to pass judgement on entire planets. Lesser beings are usually unable to grasp the full power of the stones and are destroyed by them when direct contact is made, such as the illness of Jane Foster when exposed to the Aether, the disappearance of Red Skull by the Tesseract, and the incineration of Carina by the Orb.
Each of the Infinity Stones have the ability ti be used individually by powerful beings or collections of lesser beings who focus on their intent. The Power of all six stones cam also be harnessed collectively, although none who have fared to attempt this feat has survied. The Infinity Stones are indestructible. Thor has even described the Infinity Stones as the greatest power in the universe and has also said that they are unparalleled in their destructive capabilities. The Infinity Stones represent the culmination of the entire Marvel Universe. The filmmakers have hinted on the idea to make the Infinity Gauntlet the “big thing” that is overarching the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Infinity Stones have culminated into an Infinity War movie. Thanos has long since been regarded as the Grand Puppet Master because in the Marvel Universe, he is supreme being of evil. Joss Whedon, the writer and director of Avengers: Age of Ultron said that the idea that Thanos would be the one responsible behind most of the pivitol events in the Marvel Cinematic Universe seemed natural. Once the Infinity Gauntlet is filled and he has all of the Infinity Stones, then anything is possible.
