MCU Phase 3 Leaves One Major Question Unanswered

Even people who decided to binge watch the entirety of the MCU in one sitting had trouble pinpointing the moment when Thanos got the Infinity Gauntlet. Tracking the Infinity Gauntlet in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been tricky. But here’s a timeline to help you out.

Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlet

When Did Thanos Get The Infinity Gauntlet?

The Gauntlet was first seen as an Easter Egg in Odin’s Hall of treasures on Asgard in Thor. Thanos is then shown retrieving the Infinity Gauntlet from a vault of some kind in the post-credit scene of Avengers: Age of Utron. In Thor: Ragnarok, Hela declares that Infinity Gauntlet in Odin’s vault to be a fake. Avengers: Infinity War reveals that Thanos had the dwarves of Nidavellir forge the Infinity Gauntlet for him so that he could wield the power of all the six Infinity Stones.

Then the question arises that where was Thanos when he retrieved the Infinity Gauntlet in Avengers: Age of Ultron


Brandon Davis of had a conversation with Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo and he says that the post-credits scene of Age of Ultron must be set on Nidavellir.

Another interview with took place in 2018 after the release of Infinity War and there the Russos expanded on this a bit more, saying:

“I think that it would be connected to Eitri. I think that clearly, he is the one who forged the gauntlet and Thanos had the gauntlet at that point in time. It’s been a while since any of the Asgardians have interacted with Eitri and his people.”

Questions Still Left Unanswered About The Infinity Gauntlet

The one last question which it does leave unanswered about the Infinity Gauntlet is that- if Thanos himself ordered the creation of the Infinity Gauntlet, then what was Odin’s false replica of the Gauntlet based on?

But there are many ways to retcon in an explanation- the Asgardians knew of the Infinity Stones, so perhaps Odin or one of his forebears designed the original Gauntlet in an attempt to harness their power and Thanos based his own Gauntlet on those plans- but for now, it’s a minor continuity question that is left unanswered.

Avengers: Endgame is currently playing in theatres. Captain Marvel is playing in select theatres as well with Spider-Man: Far From Home swinging in on July 5th.
