There may be multiple Infinity Gauntlets in Avengers: Endgame according to the latest theories. The Infinity Gauntlet was teased in prior Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, but it wasn't until Avengers: Infinity War that Thanos put it to use. He already had one Infinity Stone secured in the gauntlet when the movie began and he continued to gather all six stones throughout the movie.
Once he was able to collect every Infinity Stone and wield their power through the Infinity Gauntlet, Thanos snapped his fingers and wiped out half of the universe's population. Although this is exactly what he wanted to happen, there was an unforeseen consequence of the gauntlet becoming damaged. The Russo brothers have since confirmed that the Infinity Gauntlet is fused to Thanos' mighty hand, and the first trailer for Endgame showed a glimpse at this being the case. However, he may get a brand new gauntlet at some point in the film - and so too could the Avengers.
In the latest Screen Rant video, we take a look at the theories that multiple Infinity Gauntlets will be in Avengers: Endgame. There may very well be at least three different gauntlets in play for either Thanos or the Avengers to wear and harness the power of the Infinity Stones in the process. But, could there even be more or no gauntlets at all? Check out the video below to dive in to the theories:
Thanos having a new gauntlet is something that is clearly seen in the toys and other merchandise, but that doesn't mean it will happen in Endgame. The Russo brothers recently said that toy leaks are wrong 99 percent of the time, and while many took this as them debunking the white Avengers suits that have surfaced, they could actually be referring to this. Even if Thanos keeps his damaged gauntlet throughout the movie, the heroes could get their own. This could be how Eitri will have a key role in Endgame if he has to make multiple new Infinity Gauntlets for the Avengers. Of course, the theory that the Avengers will get upgraded suits and weapons of their own that can house Infinity Stones is an exciting possibility too.
These are just theories for the time being though, as Marvel's shown no clear signs that multiple Infinity Gauntlets will be in Endgame. They've been very careful with the marketing so far, which makes it easier to hide this possibility. If it is true that the marketing won't show any footage beyond the first 20 minutes, then it will be even easier to hide additional gauntlets as such a development likely wouldn't happen until later in the movie. Either way, this is a fun theory to entertain and we'll know soon enough just how many Infinity Gauntlets are in Avengers: Endgame.
