Plotholes In Marvel Films That We Bet You Didn’t Notice

After a decade of releasing some really mesmerizing films, TV shows, and countless projects, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has yet slipped multiple times here and there. In fact, their comic versions had quite some plot holes that went unnoticed by the readers. While several different creators work under the same roof and on the same project, it is quite obvious to leave at least one loophole in a project because of the differences they have in terms of the domain. While the makers tried their best to fill some of these plotholes with exceptional comebacks and reasons, some of them still exist today. With that said, these are some of the most significant plotholes in Marvel films that we bet you didn’t notice –

Thanos Didn’t Accept The First Infinity Stone

The ultimate aim of Thanos was to achieve all the Infinity Stones so that he could create an Infinity Gauntlet and wipe half the universe up. However, when he was first introduced on-screen, he gave Loki (Tom Hiddleston) the Mind Stone so that the God of Mischief could use it to acquire the Space Stone. This was perhaps a bizarre behavior portrayed by Thanos becuase the Mind Stone was the only Infinity Stone that Thanos had at that time out of all the others. The idea of losing up the only Infinity Stone when the plan was to acquire others was perhaps something really absurd and made absolutely no sense at all.

The Arc Reactor Made No Sense

Every Marvel Cinematic Universe film where Tony Stark appeared showed that he uses an arc reactor, but in a different way. While it has undoubtedly served as being the most prominent part of many films, it remains still unclear how it’d depicted? Initially, Stark needed the arc reactor because he needed to survive. Later, a different version of the arc reactor showed up that apparently started poisoning Tony Stark. However, the plot later revealed that Tony didn’t need the reactor at all. And perhaps, that is why they removed it during a surgery. Then how did it make any sense after all?

Howard Stark Left A Puzzle Behind

Of course, any list that talks about loopholes and errors has to include Iron Man 2 in it. We have seen Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark dying in the film and that is when he needed to create a new element to survive. However, he apparently discovers that what he was inventing, Howard Stark, his father, has already invented that exact thing. Not only that, but for some apparent reasons, his father hid it slightly by placing this information in multiple coded puzzles that Iron Man had to solve later. Now as far as the current scenarios are concerned, this event was the clumsiest attempt that Marvel Cinematic Universe has ever attempted.

Thor Had To Have Come To Earth Before

Thor is seemed to be somewhat bewildered initially when he landed on Earth as he has never been here. As he refers to it as “Midgard,” Thor isn’t much aware of the humans, and nor does he know how to communicate with them. However, it can’t be true after all because Earth does have Thor’s legend. With that being said, when Thor came to Earth for the first time (as portrayed) he claimed that he has never been here before. But it sounds extremely inaccurate as other Asgardians like Loki and Odin already landed here to have their early interactions with the people.

Doctor Strange’s Name Was Taken In ‘The Winter Soldier’

The Marvel fans got quite excited when Doctor Strange’s name was taken in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In the 2014-released film, Doctor Strange’s name was mentioned amongst the most potent threats to HYDRA along with Bruce Banner and Steve Rogers. However, as far as the timeline of that period was concerned, Doctor Strange was still just a medical doctor and not any closer to becoming Sorcerer Supreme anyway. Thus, it was one of the massive and most dumb plotholes any franchise could ever have.
