GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: The purple "Power" Infinity Stone revealed in the Collector's Lab

Kevin Feige: [As to how it gets planned:] Some of it comes from the source material. The cosmic cube was alway important for Red Skull and Captain America. We always knew in this film (Avengers: Age of Ultron) that there was one in Loki’s scepter and that was going to end up in Vision’s forehead. And some of the other ones like the Orb (from Guardians of the Galaxy) comes out of structural plot needs for a macguffin. And sometimes a filmmaker will say, okay so theres this orb and we’re like, okay lets put something inside that orb and have it tie into the large mythology.

Is the Gauntlet that Thanos has in the scene at the end of Ant-Man the same one that was in Odin’s vault in Thor?

Kevin Feige: It’s a great question. I may as well answer it because you asked it. Its not the same one.

Jeremy Latchem: Which one do you think is the real one?

[Feige gives an angry look as if he wasn’t supposed to suggest one of the gauntlets isn’t real]

The Avengers: Infinity War Part II

Has the entire story leading to the conclusion in The Avengers: Infinity War Part II been planned out already?

Kevin Feige: Yes, in broad strokes. Sometimes in super specific things, but for the most part in broad strokes that are broad enough and loose enough that if through the development of four or five movies before we get to the culmination, as you say, we still have room to sway, and to go, and to surprise ourselves in places that we end up.  So all the movies ultimately when they are finished can feel like they were all interconnected and meant to be and planned far ahead, but can live and breath as individual movies that can be satisfying by themselves.

How much are they viewing Avengers: Infinity War as an end of the story told thus far? Will it set-up  phase four?

Jeremy Latchem: Well I think it definitely is an end to some version of the team that we’ve come to know as The Avengers. And I don’t know exactly whats going to happen yet in that film, but I think we start to hint at it at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron that the team will be evolving. And one of the things we loved in the comics is the rosters always changing and you could pick up a new issue of the comics ten years later and you don’t recognize the people on the cover. But the ideas and ideals that make The Avengers still exist, and I think thats part of what makes this culmination will be: we’re seeing this version of the team doing this thing to save this universe, this galaxy, however you want to put it, and we’ll see where this goes. So its not the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it will be the end of part of it for sure. We’re still trying to sort out which parts. (laughs)


Are the visions The Avengers get in Avengers: Age Of Ultron their worst fears or a prediction?

Jeremy Latchem: The question I think going forward for Infinity War is: were those literal visions? Is that kind go like their worst fears being projected at you?Is that a prediction of the future of a vision of the impending doom that keeps you awake at night? I think this is something we will explore in Infinity War, how literal or not those are. I think its more, if I had to guess, just fear.
