As Age of Ultron’s mid-credits stinger revealed, Thanos has officially seized an Infinity Gauntlet and declared that he’ll collect the Infinity Stones himself. Of course, the Gauntlet—which holds all six of the Marvel Universe’s Infinity Stones—was last seen in Odin’s trophy room in Thor. This lead some viewers to wonder how Thanos broke into Asgard’s vaults and took the gauntlet so easily.
But, Marvel Studios Head Kevin Feige recently clarified that Thanos’ gauntlet is not the same one on Asgard. Meaning: the Marvel Cinematic Universe has two Infinity Gauntlets. As Feige put it:
“There are two different gloves," he told CinemaBlend. "That was not Odin’s vault that you see at the end.”
Since the above image confirms that Thanos will collect all six Infinity Stones and achieve god-hood in Avengers: Infinity War, does that mean a Marvel hero could rise to challenge him with a Gauntlet of their own? We suppose we’ll find out in a few year’s time.
Avengers: Infinity War: Part One hits theaters in 2018.
