We know that all of the Infinity Gems need to show up before Thanos grabs them all for Avengers: Infinity War, but there are a couple still to find. We’ve seen the Tesseract (space) in Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers, Vision’s Mind Stone (mind) in Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Aether (reality) in Thor: The Dark World and the Orb (power) in Guardians of the Galaxy – and now it looks like we’ve found the Time Stone.
The latest TV spot (titled ‘Time’) for Doctor Strange sees Benedict Cumberbatch use the Eye of Agamotto during a battle, which also gives glimpses to his back story while repeating the word ‘time’ over and over again. Along with Strange using the Eye to shift time around while saying the word repeatedly, fans have started to speculate that the Eye of Agamotto contains the Time Stone.
Both Kevin Feige and prop master Barry Gibbs have dropped hints that the Time Stone will feature in Doctor Strange, but chalk this up to speculation at the moment. Albeit speculation with a lot of groundwork. So, just the Soul Stone left to find, eh?
Doctor Strange is set for release on October 25th in the UK and November 4th in the US, with Scott Derrickson (Sinister) directing a cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) as Stephen Strange, Tilda Swinton (Snowpiercer) as The Ancient One, Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) as Baron Mordo, Benedict Wong (The Martian) as Wong, Rachel McAdams (True Detective) as Christine Palmer, Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal) as Kaecilius and Benjamin Bratt (The Infiltrator) in an as-yet-unrevealed role.
