The Eye of Agamotto in ‘Doctor Strange’ Houses An Infinity Stone

Stone in Eye of Agamotto

“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 BookGibbs 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.

    I think it will actually be the Reality Stone, since “realities” is a thing that they’re mentioning a lot lately. And I know we previously believed the Aether was the Reality Stone, but I think it’s actually the Soul Stone, since it needs a host body.

      No I bet it is the Time Stone in one of the trailers you could see Doctor Strange kind of moving time backwards to rebuild a building or something if I remember correctly

        Yeah, totally could be. Especially since Feige did mention something about it. But eh, we’ll see.

    Feige said Dr Strange wouldn’t touch on the Infinity Stones…I’m leaning toward Feige being right. There’s no quote from this guy which directly contradicts that.

      I like the way that original article doesn’t give any substantial direct quotes, to help clarify things. So he says it looks suspiciously like an Infinity Stone…or did he? Did the article writer add that? Any actual quotes cited merely call it a stone. So let’s report it as FACT! Heck of a job on your journalism, comicbook.com. And kudos to you as well HH, for regurgitating unsubstantiated tidbits as FACT. (golf clap)

      I think the movie just won’t address the Eye as an Infinity Stone. Like, they won’t say it is a Stone. But then, in, say, Infinity War, they’ll reveal that it houses one.
