    Stuff I'd like to see: consequences of the Romanova InfoDump.

    Also: How well-mapped out is the universe for SHIELD's purposes?

    I think we saw a bit of the consequences of Romanova's InfoDump (or is it Romanoff). Talbot named Coulson's team fugitives.

    Also the Congressional hearings that Maria Hill was dealing with in her episode, like the one at the end of the movie, were presumably fallout from the infodump.

    (Romanova is the proper Russian form of a feminine surname. Since we don't use gendered names that way in English, we tend to render it as Romanoff.)

    I wonder if any independent criminals got ahold of useful information from Romanoff's leak?

    It's "Malekith".

    And I think what Reverend means is that Thanos must have found out that the Tesseract was on Earth at some point before 2011 (after all, no one in Thor mentions Infinity Stones, so how did Loki find about the Tesseract?) but couldn't do anything about getting it until Loki came to him, asking for help in subjugating Earth and informing him that the Bifrost was gone. So Thanos decided that working with Loki would be an excellent opportunity to finally obtain the Tesseract.

    Funny thing is that working with Loki still might be Thanos's best option seeing as Loki is currently running Asguard and can just hand Thanos the Tesseract.

    They don't mention Infinity Stones but the Infinity Gauntlet is seen in the background the first time you see the Destroyer. It could just be common knowledge that doesn't need to be discussed.

    ^Yet only Odin knew of the Aether, it was considered to be myth by most Asgardians who had even heard of it.

    Thor didn't recognise the Mind gem, assuming Loki's staff is it. Presumably he told others about it after he returned.

    Maybe they're known by that name, but it seems most everyone in the universe wouldn't know one if they saw it. The identity and forms of the 6 individual stones is something say only Odin, the Collector and Thanos really know.

    I'm not sure Loki would be interested anymore. He seemed to align with Thanos in exchange for the right to rule Earth. I'm not sure he'd be as interested in that right now. Plus, even in Avengers, he seemed to be more the victim of circumstances by the end, unable to call of the events he set in motion.

    Considering the Other flat out told him they would hunt him down and kill him horribly if he failed, it sounds like its in his best interests to suck up to Thanos.

    Or stay in hiding (since there's no guarantee sucking up will change anything).

    Luckily, he has the ability to shapeshift, so he might be able to effectively hide.

    I'm certain it was Thanos who took out Odin and allowed Loki to take the throne, I can't see Loki being able to take out Odin even taing him by surprise.

    As to that particular switcheroo...we know when.

    We know neither how, nor why.

    And I would suggest that the switch might yet prove more voluntary than many would currently accept. And still be completely in character for both.

    Looking forward to the next installment of Thor...

    I'm thinking Loki may play a similar role to that of Mephisto in The Infinity Gauntlet.

    Yeah I don't think Thanos is they type to forgive or give second chances. Besides, Loki appears to have what he wants for now but he must know Thanos will eventually come for those two items currently stored in the vaults of Asgard. That may be why "Odin" order Sif to entrusts the Aether to the collector, so they present less of a target.

    As for who knows about the infinity stones; Odin exposited all about them when he talked about the origin of the Aether. Then in TDW's post-credits Sif clearly knows what they are. It may not be widely known, but it's clearly not a secret.

    I can't wait to see what they plan to do with her.
