IMDB reveals possible plot points of Avengers 2?

May 12th, 2012 by Marc 1 Comment


Has the IMDB revealed a big bit of what we can expect in the now confirmed Avengers 2? If you haven’t watched the movie yet don’t read what follows after the poster below… you have been warned as it reveals much about Avengers and potentially Avengers 2. You have been warned.

We thougt we’d see you back here. Ok, it seems that the staff/spear that Loki has in Avengers is much, much more than it seems and ties in heavily with Thanos, the villain we saw in the after credits scene in the movie. Here’s what the IMDB trivia section has to say:

The Avengers, while on the Helicarrier, realize that they are being turned against each other via mind manipulation from Loki. This happens when Banner unknowingly picks up the staff that Loki has with him and uses to both shoot and turn humans into his minions.. The tip of the spear has a blue sparkling cry…stal at the end that many believe is energy from the Cosmic Cube…this is false. It is actually the Blue Infinity Gem that allows the user to control others and enter the thoughts of others. It is part of Marvel’s “Infinity Gauntlet” which involves the Avengers taking on Thanos, the character seen during the credits. After a long war spanning dozens of Marvel comics issues (including a canceled story line) the Gems are dispersed among superheros and mutants after Iron Man and Steve Rogers reclaim them. In fact, one of the Gems makes it into rival DC Comics story lines and is given to Darkseid, who is the DC equivalent to Thanos.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….

    I don’t think too much credence should be given to this. I believe it has been confirmed that it was the Mind Gem in Loki’s staff and even with the presence of Thanos there is the possibility that it will happen eventually, I don’t know if it will necessarily be in the sequel. Whedon said that if he does come back, he’d like to go a bit smaller as opposed to trying to do something bigger and the Infinity Gauntlet would definitely not fit that description.

    Personally, my money is on the Masters of Evil. Perhaps there will be a subplot where they’re being manipulated or working for Thanos (and the rumored[?] presence of the Enchantress in Thor 2 could lead to an appearance for her in Avengers 2 with the Masters or pulling their strings). Or as Avengers 2 is likely to come after Ant-Man, maybe Ultron?

    Then again, it’s still early yet and Whedon hasn’t even confirmed whether or not he’ll do a sequel. If he does, there’s a chance he might change his mind and if he doesn’t then the next director may decide to go with the Infinity Gauntlet. So who knows?
