“Avengers: Infinity War Writers Confirm Cosmic Cube Theory” at We Got This Covered.
The first Infinity Stone we encountered in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was the Space Stone, which initially appeared back in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger. Back then, though, the Macguffin was referred to as the Tesseract, with it not becoming clear until many movies later that it was actually one of the six powerful gems. It turns out this wasn’t originally the plan, however, according to Avengers: Infinity War‘s screenwriters.
Scribes Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus were talking with Collider in an in-depth interview when the topic of Red Skull’s return in the movie, his first appearance since The First Avenger, came up. While discussing this, the writers revealed that the Tesseract was initially talked about behind the scenes as the Cosmic Cube, the long-running reality-warping box from the comics.
“Obviously, we started with him, 10 years ago. And he had the Cosmic Cube, which was then referred to sometimes as the Cosmic Cube, and we didn’t know it was one of the Infinity Stones.”

One big question is, when exactly does Thanos retrieve the infinity gauntlet? If Asgard protects the forge that creates the gauntlet, and Asgard isn’t destroyed until 2017?s “Thor: Ragnarok,” then why do we see Thanos with the gauntlet after the credits in 2015?s “Avengers: Age Of Ultron”? Wouldn’t someone have been notified?

Possibly being the last person in the world to see Avengers: Infinity War, Stan Lee took to Twitter this week and in his inimitable style, reacted to that devastating ending. “Holy smoke! I go out of town for a few days and when I get back I find out that Thanos has destroyed everything!” said the comic book legend.
Well, only half of everything, but let’s not split hairs. Continuing on, Lee stated:
Before you know it, I’ll have our friends up and at ’em and if I were Thanos I would start getting out of town! Excelsior!
