Slowly but surely, Marvel has introduced many of the Ininity Stones, all of which will play a big role in the upcoming Marvel Studios teamup flick, Avengers: Infinity War. Thus far, throughout the previous 13 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, our heroes have interacted with four of these stones: The Space Stone (the Tesseract in Avengers), The Mind Stone (Loki’s Scepter, and now Vision’s headpiece), The Reality Stone (which caused all sorts of confusion in Thor: The Dark World), and the Power Stone (which served as the MacGuffin in Guardians of the Galaxy).

So this leaves us two more stones to find before they are inevitably collected by MCU big bad Thanos and used to unleash all sorts of hell on the Avengers.

Well, may be able to cross off one more stone off your list. In a report from Comicbook.com, the outlet described a conversation with Doctor Strange prop guy Barry Gibbs. In that conversation regarding the creation of the Eye of Agomotto, the amulet Doctor Strange wears around his neck, Gibbs offhandedly remarked that the mystical amulet holds something thatlooks “suspiciously like an Infinity Stone.”

Gibbs went on to describe how difficult it was to create the stone, how many they went through — yeah, who cares?! It sounds like Gibbs just straight outted it as the fifth Infinity Stone. This is a piece of trivia fans have been speculating over for some time now, so some of you have already assumed this was confirmed, but that is not the case.

The most likely candidate for the Eye of Agomotto is the Time Stone, as in past interviews with Kevin Feige, the Marvel head stated that Strange uses the amulet to manipulate time.

While this is not quite yet a full-on confirmation of the fifty Infinity Stone, it’s now one step closer to being official. 

What do you think of this semi-reveal? Are you surprised the Eye of Agomotto is one of the Infinity Stones, and if so, do you think it’s the right move from Marvel Studios? Let us know your thoughts down below!
