There's already a canon film on the subject.

I would have liked more Thanos screentime, but whatever.

I'm liking him having little tease scenes in the movies, because it's going to be all the more exciting when he's finally the main antagonist.


So, what? That's like 3+ movies based around chasing macguffins?

That depends on how you define "MacGuffin" for this. Some people use it as a generic term for "any object a film's plot revolves around", whereas others use the definition of an ultimately meaningless item (like the briefcase in Pulp Fiction) that's meant to drive the film without actually mattering or being important in the overall plot or continuity. If you mean the former then yes, but if you mean the latter then no.

The Infinity stone falls into the former. I usually just ignore macguffins altogether, but an entirely different trope is used in GotG. I can't remember the trope name, but it goes something like this: character is in possession of said macguffin, doesn't understand the macguffin until later, and then gets into an unwinnable situation in which the macguffin ultimately resolves.

Deus ex Macguffin?

Just 3 movies.

I really want an infinity gauntlet movie.
Avengers 3.
That's the rumored Infinity Gauntlet movie.  Hence why they put each stone into every single move.

By the time Avengers 3 rolls out, all of them will be shown and Thanos will suddenly have all of them.

We literally just went over how they've only appeared in four of the movies.

Also, these movies have enough white male leads.  Where are all the women and/or people of color?

Point.  Sorry, I was thinking wrong.  But they are putting the gems in a lot of their movies, especially since Thor 1.

Gauntlet in Thor 1
Gem of Space in both Captain America 1 and Avengers 1
Gem of Reality in Thor 2
Gem of Power in Guardians of the Galaxy
Gem of Mind is rumored to be in Loki's staff in Avengers 1

So that leaves 2 more gems.

She never did play a lead in any of the live action movies, I don't know about cartoons. But she is a black female hero.

Which is probably what lead Saddam to this:
