...itials that spell out Thanos are not just the housings for the gems. I agree with this interpretation. While the orb and the scepter are receptacles, 'tesseract' and 'aether' are alternate names for the stones, not housings. Another writer pointed out that James Gunn has said that Warlock will not appear in GotG 2. Okay, but Collider and Screenrant both report a casting call for Infinity War I that states that both Warlock and his alter ego, the Magus will be cast for the film. My question remains, though? Where will they bring in Warlock?
