Avengers: Infinity War

New this month Plot hole: Thanos' henchmen could not know that Vision was in Wakanda to get the stone from his forehead.

New this month Suggested correction: Seeing as how they were able to locate Vision and Wanda in Scotland earlier in the movie, the stones most likely give off some signature that certain individuals can track if they are skilled enough. Thanos, for example, knew at the beginning of the film that two of the stones were located on Earth.

In that case Thanos could know where was the stone of the soul but he didn't, why he didn't use that skill then?

Thanos had already been in possession of the Mind Stone before he gave it to Loki. The Soul Stone had been hidden for years and no-one had ever claimed it.

Unlike the other Infinity Stones, the Soul Stone cannot simply be possessed by anyone that finds it, as they have to sacrifice what they love to gain it. Given that, it makes sense that it would prove difficult to locate.

Or they could have tracked the Quinjet they flew with the entire time.

Continuity mistake: In Guardians of the Galaxy, Gamora's backstory is that she is the only one of her kind left. But here we're told Thanos killed half her planet and kidnapped her, meaning half of her people are still alive.

Suggested correction: Half her species was left alive by Thanos, but we don't know what happened after that.

People have already attempted to correct this, her people still exist and we do know what happened since then, "the children born have known nothing but full bellies and clear skies [Zen-Whoberi] is a paradise." Murdering half the planet was a small price to pay for salvation according to Thanos.

Thanos isn't all-knowing.

But Gamora has been with him most of the time - he'll know as much as she does, or more.

Yes. Half were left alive. That contradicts the first guardians movie, like I wrote in the first place.

New this month Revealing mistake: When Ebony Maw attaches Strange to the wall, they are upside down but Ebony's hair doesn't react to gravity. (00:23:05)

New this month Suggested correction: Maw was using his telekinetic powers to hover above the ground and be upside down. He likely used his telekinetic powers keep his body, hair and clothing in the same state to make it easier for him. You can tell this by the way his hair kind of floats when he is attaching Strange to the wall, compared to when it rests normally when he is right side up.

Trivia: Spoilers! Red Skull makes his long-awaited return to the MCU after his appearance in Captain America: The First Avenger. We discover that he's been guarding the soul stone as punishment, of sorts. However he's played by Ross Marquand, not Hugo Weaving.

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.

More quotes from Avengers: Infinity War


Question: Why couldn't Bruce become Hulk?

oswal13

Answer: Although many fans speculated it was because the Hulk fears Thanos after Thanos easily defeated him at the beginning of the film, the Russo brothers have since come out and said that it's because the Hulk feels that Banner only wants the Hulk around for helping him in fights, so his refusal to transform is a protest of sorts.

Phaneron Premium member

I think it's both.

Well it's not both. The Russo Brothers, who directed the film, have openly stated that the Hulk is not afraid of Thanos.

Phaneron Premium member

Answer: Because he doesn't like being used as a tool and he also is summoned in two places he's already destroyed: New York and Africa. Those are two places he's shown regret for the damage he's caused, which caused him to leave in the first place.

DetectiveGadget85

Answer: Cause Hulk is afraid of Thanos.

This is directly contradicted by the directors of the film, who have stated it's because he doesn't like that Banner only wants to use him for his strength.

Jason Hoffman

Answer: It has been speculated that Banner is in fact Loki shape-shifted, which is why he has problems transforming.

That's a fan theory with no merit to it. Banner is shown trying to transform into the Hulk while inside the Hulkbuster armor. There's no reason Loki would try to fake a transformation where no one could see it. Banner is also shown explaining to Shuri how he and Tony Stark created Vision, and we also see his awkward reunion with Black Widow. Both of those are things Loki would have no knowledge of.

Question: Why doesn't anyone ever destroy the stones? What purpose do they serve other than no one person should have them?

DetectiveGadget85

Answer: "Doctor Strange" demonstrates that the Infinity Stones are useful in the most dire of situations, when Strange used the Time Stone to prevent Dormammu from taking over the Earth. It's also possible that some of the stones are indestructible. Wanda is able to temporarily destroy the Mind Stone by using her own powers, but the Power Stone will destroy any being that doesn't possess the strength to wield it, and the Reality Stone is shown to have a will of its own and defended itself when it bonded with Jane Foster.

Also, in the comics, if the stones are destroyed they will simply be replaced by something else or even stones again. They represent the existence of the universe and cannot be destroyed for real. Always only temporarily.

Question: What do the Wakandans chant when lined up, ready for the battle?

Bishop73

Answer: From what I've read, they are chanting "yibambe," which is Xhosa for "we hold our ground."
