Following the release of the first teaser for Avengers: Infinity War, comic book movie fans discovered that the film would be about the Mad Titan's quest to collect all of the Infinity Stones. The teaser also revealed that Thanos had already obtained the Space Stone, which is contained within the Tesseract, and the Power Stone, aka the Orb.
This means that Thanos has defeated Thor and the Asgardian refugees, and has squashed the Nova Corps, likely leaving Xandar in ruins.
So four more stones remain to be collected. Surprisingly, the Mind Stone and the Time Stone are both on Earth. The former is embedded in Vision's forehead, and the latter is kept within Doctor Strange's Eye of Agamotto.
As teased in the Black Panther trailers and the huge battle in the Infinity War clip, the Soul Stone is also on Earth. But where does that leave the final stone, the Power Gem?
The last time we saw it, during a Thor: Ragnarok credits scene, the Aether was entrusted to the Collector. It’s likely that Thanos will gather any available stones before he heads to Earth, so will he surprise the Collector with a visit?
This leaked clip provides the answer!

We see Josh Brolin's foot on the Collector's chest, so the CGI is obviously not complete. Additionally, two essential fan-favorite Guardians of the Galaxy members aren't present, simply because they’re also CGI.
But the Collector’s fate is clear.
