After eleven years of build-up and twenty-three movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Infinity Saga comes to an end this summer with Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Or does it?
You see, there's a theory that the elusive and mysterious seventh Infinity Stone from the comic books - the Ego Stone (or Ego Gem as it's known in the source material) - will be an important MacGuffin in MCU Phase Four.
In this video, we'll explain why that's the case and what it might mean for the franchise in terms of its forthcoming narrative.
It's based on several factors - one being the fact that, in the comics, the Ego Gem was discovered in a different universe, so now the multiverse has become a thing in the MCU, it may be found in a different universe in the franchise.
But there's also the fact that Doctor Doom and Kang the Conqueror might be introduced, now that Disney have acquired Fox. Given that they can both time travel and often seek out items of power, either of those villains might covet the Infinity Stones - and given that Marvel Studios will want to differentiate Phase Four from the Infinity Saga, adding the Ego Stone to the franchise would certainly do that.
And what about Kurt Russell's Ego? Was his existence in the franchise hinting towards the introduction of the powerful item that shares his name? You'll have to watch the video to find out more.
