Trivia: On Knowhere, Thanos is questioning The Collector, played by Benicio Del Toro, for the location of the Reality Stone. He asks him "Where is the stone?" at one point. This is a reference to a heist scene from the movie Snatch, in which Benicio Del Toro is robbing a bank and asks "Where is the stone?" with the same line intonation. (00:48:45)

Trivia: In this film, Thanos' plan to wipe out half of all sentient life stems from his desire to bring balance to the universe. In the comics, he is motivated by his unrequited love for the physical embodiment of Death.

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo also signed up for the campaign. At the end of the campaign, over 300,000 people had their accounts banned, including Joe Russo.

Trivia: When Star-Lord attempts to shoot Gamora with his blaster before she is taken by Thanos, Thanos uses the Reality Stone to turn his blaster into bubbles.

This is a reference to the fighting game Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes, where attacks by Thanos often involved the use of bubbles. (00:53:30)

Trivia: Directors Joe and Anthony Russo like to put in nods to their previous works in their MCU films. In this movie, a man closely resembling Tobias Funke in his "Blue Man Group" makeup (from the series "Arrested Development") is briefly visible inside of one of the Collector's cages behind Gamora for a brief instant. It's hard to spot, but he's there.

Trivia: With the release of this film, Robert Downey Jr., who played Sherlock Holmes in a 2009 feature film and its 2011 sequel, has worked with two Watsons and a fellow Holmes in the MCU. His "Iron Man 3" co-star Ben Kingsley portrayed Watson in the comedy film "Without a Clue." His "Captain America: Civil War" co-star Martin Freeman portrays Watson alongside Benedict Cumberbatch's Holmes in the BBC series "Sherlock." And Downey stars alongside Cumberbatch in this film.

Trivia: Doctor Strange learns of the coming of Thanos after Hulk/Bruce Banner crash lands into the Sanctum Sanctorum and informs Strange of the looming threat. This is taken straight from the "Infinity Gauntlet" storyline, though there it is Silver Surfer that warns Doctor Strange.
