The MCU’s Latest MacGuffin Just Unveiled by Marvel (Photo)

The MCU is known for its long history of using MacGuffin-style items to advance the story, particularly in the Infinity Saga. The largest of these MacGuffins came with the six Infinity Stones introduced in six films between Phase 1 and Phase 3 and all to Avengers: Infinity War as Thanos went on his own hunt for them all.

Rumors have already been swirling about what the next MacGuffins set in the MCU will be, which fans have reportedly been watching throughout most of Phase 4. This includes Kamala Khan’s bangle Mrs Miracle and the Ten Rings of Simu Liu’s first Shang Chi movie, although it’s still unclear how they’ll come together in the upcoming battle against Kang the Conqueror.

Now, ahead of the latest MCU release on Disney+, the Werewolf at night As a Halloween special, fans will get a new look at the MCU’s latest upcoming MacGuffin, which will propel this unique storyline into the streaming space.

Taking a closer look at the artifact, it appears to be the MCU version of the Bloodgem, a MacGuffin often used in the Marvel Comics.

This gem bestows incredible powers on its wearer, including increased speed, strength, durability, and even psychic powers. It’s often been a treasure pursued by Ulysses Klaue, and it also has ties to Elsa Bloodstone from the Halloween special and even Deadpool.

How does the Bloodstone fit into the MCU?

While it’s not all that surprising to see a new MacGuffin taking the MCU spotlight, it’s hard to tell how he’ll fit into the overarching narrative of Marvel’s first Halloween special.

With this special running just over 50 minutes long, fans are hoping that the Bloodstone gets its fair share of screen time and development as part of the storyline. And since it’s a MacGuffin, there’s a chance it’ll reappear in a later MCU project as well, especially with more spooky new entries like blade in development for release.

This plot detail did not appear in any of the reviews for Werewolf at night although reception for the new Disney+ entry has been overwhelmingly positive so far. After premiering in early October, fans will learn more about how the Bloodstone fits into the larger MCU, especially as it becomes the latest major MacGuffin to pursue.
