'Thor: The Dark World' Easter Eggs, Trivia & References

Thor 2 Dark World Infinity Gauntlet Easter Egg

We'll forgive casual audiences for being somewhat confused by the mid-credits scene of The Dark World, paving the way for the cosmic storyline of Guardians of the Galaxy with little context. We've already provided a lengthy explanation of exactly what should be taken away from the brief scenes, but Marvel fans saw the foundation for the future being laid throughout the movie's story.

Beginning with Odin claiming that the mysterious Aether - the universe-altering substance wielded by Malekith - was a liquid, as opposed to a solid stone. The line is a clear sign that not only should the Aether be taken as one of Marvel's 'Infinity Gems,' later referred to as 'Infinity Stones,' but that the movies are on a crash course with Thanos' Infinity Gauntlet.
