'Infinity War' Trailer Hints At the Soul Stone’s Location

In the first official Avengers: Infinity War trailer, we see the villain Thanos collecting some of the coveted Infinity Stones. While the whereabouts of the Soul Stone remains unknown, the trailer hints that a popular theory might be true: The Orange Soul Stone has been in Wakanda this whole time.

Because it’s the only stone we haven’t seen yet, and because Black Panther is the only Marvel movie set to come out before Infinity War, this theory already made a lot of sense. Almost all of the MCU movies have featured at least one Infinity Stone in some fashion, with only a few notable exceptions. So it stands to reason that the only Stone we’ve never seen might be in a place we’ve never really gone: Wakanda. But the Infinity War trailer makes this seem more likely than ever.

Why would Thanos launch an assault on Wakanda if not to retrieve an Infinity Stone?

The Infinity War footage screened at D23 and San Diego Comic-Con over the summer featured Black Panther and the Winter Soldier uniting on the battlefield with an army to fight some invading alien force. We didn’t know for sure where it was back then, but now, it seems all but certain that the epic battle takes place just outside of what’s probably the capital city of Wakanda, Birnin Zana.

Evidence mounts when you look at how many Avengers show up for the fight. In perhaps the most epic moment of the trailer, we see the Winter Soldier, War Machine, Black Widow, Captain America, the Hulk, Okoye, and Black Panther. We even see the Hulkbuster Iron Man armor in action during one shot.

At the 1:18 mark, T’Challa says, “Evacuate the city, engage our defenses, and get this man a shield.” He’s no doubt referring to some impending assault on Birnin Zana, and the “man” is definitely Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, who commonly fights with a Vibranium shield but gave his up at the end of Captain America: Civil War.

Now all we have to do is wait for Black Panther.

Black Panther will be released February 16, 2018 with Avengers: Infinity War hitting theaters May 4, 2018.

'Avengers: Endgame': Here's Why Thanos Waited for This Villain to Die First

So this might be why Thanos waited until the last minute to strike.

In terms of raw strength, Thanos may be one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But shortly before his arrival in Avengers: Infinity War, there was another villain who could have given his purple alien ass a serious run for his money: Hela, Thor’s secret sister and the villain of 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok. So, here’s a thought: Did Thanos wait until Hela was gone before he began collecting the Infinity Stones?

Everything We Know About 'Love, Death & Robots' Season 2 Isn't Much

Netflix bizarre, hypnotic new series will probably get a second season.

Netflix’s new NSFW anthological animated sci-fi series is unlike anything else on the streaming service, and we’re already wondering if we can expect a Love, Death & Robots Season 2, full of even more hyper-sexualized and sometimes gruesome sci-fi stories.

Love, Death & Robots Season 1 hit Netflix on Friday, March 15, 2019, offering 18 different stories of varied lengths between 6 and 17 minutes long, each telling a totally unique story using different animation styles.

'Avengers: Endgame' Tony Stark Spoilers: Is the Trailer Lying to Us?

The very first Avengers: Endgame trailer released in December made it seem like Tony Stark might die in space. The Super Bowl TV spot in February then showed him and Nebula welding, probably working on some way to save themselves.

Now, with the latest full trailer released Thursday, we get the full-on spoiler that Tony Stark survives his space adventure and makes it back to Earth. There, they team up with the rest of the heroes to build some cool white suits and then … do something!

Here's Where the Magnifying Glass Sits on the Treasure Map in 'Fortnite'

Look for the ice statues.

There’s a new challenge in the world of Fortnite: Battle Royale for Season 8, Week 3 that should also feel very familiar to players — it’s a fusion of two things we’re all used to doing.

Week 3 began Tuesday morning at 10:30 a.m. Eastern, about 90 minutes later than usual, and even more delayed than Week 2. We predicted that treasure map challenges would return in Season 8, and here in Week 3, they have returned … sort of.

Where to Find the Secret Battle Star in 'Fortnite' Season 8, Week 3

More giant faces in the landscape.

Fortnite: Battle Royale’s Season 8 Discovery challenges continue in Week 3 with a fun new loading screen inspired by Indiana Jones, except this time around, it’s the female Sidewinder skin stealing some treasure from an ancient ruin.

Week 3 kicked off Thursday morning a little bit later than usual, but once players complete seven new challenges — like finding where the magnifying glass sits on the treasure map loading screen — they’ll be able to claim a secret battle star.
