“Doctor Strange” prop master Barry Gibbs has revealed that the Eye of Agamotto holds an Infinity Stone.
With Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” on the way, the studio has slowly revealed the stones, there are six in total, in several of its MCU films. The stone inside the Eye, which is revealed when the amulet opens up, will make this the fifth stone.
“I think there was something like 24 color variations of the stone,” Gibbs said in an interview with Comic Book. Gibbs added that a challenge to finding the right design for the stone was creating a practical prop that actually fit inside the Eye. He even considered using a different design.
Gibbs and his team ultimately decided to use a “key piece” that will later be replaced with digital effects. Gibbs didn’t reveal which stone is housed inside the Eye, but it will most likely be the Time Stone, considering Strange’s ability to manipulate time with the Eye.
“Doctor Strange,” starring Benedict Cumberbatch, is slated for a Nov. 4 release:
Marvel’s Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.
