In the post-credits scene of Avengers: Age of Ultron, we saw that Thanos had an Infinity gauntlet and he was ready to do it ‘himself’. In the Infinity War, he supposedly traveled to Nidavellir to get the gauntlet made by Eitri. This created a huge controversy as Eitri told Thor that Thanos came to him for the gauntlet, he killed all dwarves but Asgard wasn’t there to protect them, to this Thor replied Asgard couldn’t as it’s in ruins.
This can’t be possible given the existing MCU timeline. Also, the similar controversy erupted when another Infinity gauntlet was show-cased in Thor franchise, but later Hela clarified that whichever ancient artifacts Odin and her couldn’t collect, they created a fake copy of it.
The Reddit user AhhBisto explains that Thanos did possess two separate gauntlets since the previous one was ill-equipped to hold the six Infinity stones, he went for another one.
“At the end of Age Of Ultron we see Thanos retrieve his Gauntlet and says he’ll do it himself but then he goes to Nidavellir to have a Gauntlet created by Eitri. People see this as a plot hole but it’s really not………they’re not the same fucking Gauntlet. When Thor, Rocket and Groot get to Nidavellir they notice a mould of the Gauntlet and Eitri explains that Thanos wanted “a device capable of harnessing the power of the Stones. So why go Eitri and the dwarves if he had one already? Because the one he had couldn’t hold the Stones and they could make him one, and the dwarves specialise in rare metals like Uru.”
He further elaborated on the fact that there is a comic-book precedent for such a thing:
“Here’s the thing about the Infinity Gauntlet itself, it started out as a piece of Thanos’ armour in the comics that Thanos re-designed to hold the power of the Infinity Stones, but over the years as the Stones have been used in stories more, their lore has expanded. One such story saw a villain called The Hood assemble 3 of the Stones by himself but without the Gauntlet, and doing so caused him physical harm each time he used them (this is in the 2010 Avengers series by Brian Bendis and John Romita Jr.) and he is warned by Doctor Strange (disguised as Thanos) that he will end up killing himself if he carried on because of the sheer power he was using”.
“So this was Thanos’ issue, he could physically hold one or two of the Stones without a Gauntlet to hold them as could most cosmic beings (and part of the reason why Peter Quill didn’t evaporate by touching the Power Stone in GOTG V1) but to literally wield INFINITY he would need something stronger. The only metals capable of “harnessing” the power of the Stones are the rare metals of the Marvel Universe, Uru would be one and i would bet Vibranium could possibly do it too.”
The ensemble cast of Infinity War is simply brilliant as it includes top talent brought by Marvel studios such as Josh Brolin (Thanos), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Jeremy Reiner (Hawkeye), Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr. Strange), Benedict Wong (Wong), Tom Holland (Spiderman), Letitia Wright (Shuri), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlett Witch), Karen Gillian (Nebula), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Bradley Cooper (Rocket Raccoon), Vin Diesel (Groot), Dave Bautista (Drax), Paul Bettany (Vision).
Avengers: Infinity War earned over $2 Billion worldwide, hence creating a box-office history. The movie is currently available on digital platforms, DVD/Blu Ray etc. The official movie synopsis reads:
