Avengers: Infinity War Stone Locations: Where Is Every Infinity Stone Now?
By Michael Rougeau on
Five down, one to go.
Thanks to a new report--not to mention the dozen-plus movies that have come before--we now know for certain the location of five of the six Infinity Stones that will play a huge role in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.
Based on what we know from the comics and the previous movies, Thanos is seeking the Infinity Stones to power up his fancy gauntlet and--well, whatever his ultimate goal is, it's not going to be good. So where is every Infinity Stone? Click through to find out what we know leading into Infinity War, which hits theaters April 27.

6. Time Stone
Location: Doctor Strange's possession
Thanks to the 2016 movie Doctor Strange, we know that the titular character--portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch--is currently in possession of the green Infinity Stone, the Time Stone. It's actually the Eye of Agamotto, Strange's famed amulet, which is a new twist in the movies.
As director Scott Derrickson told CinemaBlend, "The Eye [of Agamotto] in the comics is too powerful...It could do anything at any time. So we ended up working into the idea that it was used for time manipulation, and that just organically led us to, 'Well, why don't we put the Time Stone in it?' And it worked!"
5. Reality Stone
Location: The Collector's possession
We learned in Thor: The Dark World that the red Reality Stone, then taking the form of the Aether, has come to rest in the safekeeping of Benicio del Toro's character, The Collector.
Infinity War footage that apparently leaked last year suggests he might not have it anymore, though, so we'll have to wait until April 27 to find out for sure.
4. Power Stone
Location: With the Nova Corps
The intergalactic cops known as the Nova Corps took possession of the purple gem, the Power Stone, in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Peter Quill and his cohorts entrusted the Corps. with the Stone's care after wresting it from the grip of Ronan the Accuser.
3. Mind Stone
Location: Vision's forehead
Paul Bettany's character Vision was created with the help of the yellow Infinity Stone, the Mind Stone, which currently rests embedded in his forehead. It's unlikely Vision will be able to survive without the Mind Stone, so his fate in Infinity War is looking grim if Thanos gets his way.
2. Space Stone
Location: Yup, Loki has it
The Space Stone is the blue Infinity Stone also known as the Tesseract. It played a big role in the first Avengers movie, after which it fell to the Asgardians for safekeeping. Then, in last year's Thor: Ragnarok, it was implied that Loki nabbed the gem from the vault just before Asgard was destroyed.
The Avengers: Infinity War Prelude comics referred back to this scene, though the panel didn't explicitly confirm that Loki stole the Space Stone. Entertainment Weekly's big March cover story, though, does: "Tom Hiddleston’s Loki has snatched the blue Space Stone," the site writes. Well, there you have it.
1. Soul Stone
The orange Soul Stone is the one that's yet to be revealed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There are, however, some theories, including that the Souls Stone might have appeared in Black Panther after all. Wakanda may have unwittingly had it all along.
Elsewhere it's been speculated that the Soul Stone may have already appeared in Infinity War trailers, maybe even in the giant form of the big orange planet seen in some shots.
Of course, this is all speculation, and we won't know the location of the Soul Stone for sure until Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters April 27.
