Revealing mistake: Just after Proxima Midnight and Corvus Glaive land in the train station, there is a wide shot where they begin approaching Wanda and Vision. In the wide shot, their shadows do not appear to match up with each other, despite being under the same lighting. Proxima Midnight's shadow is positioned in front of her and is quite heavy, but Corvus Glaive's shadow is positioned more to his left and is much lighter than Proxima's. (00:40:20)

But in the next shot, neither of his ears has an earphone in them. (00:18:25)

Trivia: The final shot of Thanos smiling while sitting on the porch of a farmhouse is a nod to the ending of the "Infinity Gauntlet" storyline, which showed a defeated but optimistic Thanos similarly residing on a farm and smiling.

Trivia: Directors Joe and Anthony Russo like to put in nods to their previous works in their MCU films. In this movie, a man closely resembling Tobias Funke in his "Blue Man Group" makeup (from the series "Arrested Development") is briefly visible inside of one of the Collector's cages behind Gamora for a brief instant. It's hard to spot, but he's there.

Wanda then tries to stop him, and it cuts to a wide shot where he suddenly is a couple of steps closer with his hand suddenly around Vision's neck. Thanos then pushes her with his other hand and in the next shot, Thanos is then reaching to put his hand around Vision's neck even though he was just shown with his hand around Vision's neck already.

Trivia: In this film, Thanos' plan to wipe out half of all sentient life stems from his desire to bring balance to the universe. In the comics, he is motivated by his unrequited love for the physical embodiment of Death.

Question: Why doesn't anyone ever destroy the stones? What purpose do they serve other than no one person should have them?

DetectiveGadget85

Answer: "Doctor Strange" demonstrates that the Infinity Stones are useful in the most dire of situations, when Strange used the Time Stone to prevent Dormammu from taking over the Earth. It's also possible that some of the stones are indestructible. Wanda is able to temporarily destroy the Mind Stone by using her own powers, but the Power Stone will destroy any being that doesn't possess the strength to wield it, and the Reality Stone is shown to have a will of its own and defended itself when it bonded with Jane Foster.

Also, in the comics, if the stones are destroyed they will simply be replaced by something else or even stones again. They represent the existence of the universe and cannot be destroyed for real. Always only temporarily.
