More details about Marvel’s Thor emerged at Comic-Con International with the unveiling of the Infinity Gauntlet, the glove crafted in the comics by Thanos to harness the power of the Infinity Gems. Just how the Gauntlet and the sentient Gems — and, perhaps, the Mad Titan himself — fit into the film remains to be seen.
Created by Jim Starlin, Thanos is a Death-obsessed Eternal bent on genocide and galactic conquest. The Infinity Gems — initially called the Soul Gems — are six immensely powerful stones, each granting its bearer with mastery over one aspect of the universe: Mind, Reality, Time, Space, Soul and Power. Combined on the Infinity Gauntlet, they make the user omnipotent.
Loki has possessed the Infinity Gems in Marvel comics, so there’s a decent chance that the god of mischief could be wearing the Gauntlet in Kenneth Branaugh’s film.
Opening on May 6, 2011, Thor stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Jamie Alexander and Anthony Hopkins. In this film we know that Loki becomes the ruler of Asgard perhaps that is when Loki plays with the idea of possessing or using the Infinity Gauntlet. Or the Gauntlet is seen in the movie but not used until the New Avengers Movie planned in 2012 with Thanos as the villain in the movie. Marvel is very closed mouth even after showing the Infinity Gauntlet Prop at the convention. Who knows at this time.
Marvel is featuring another comic series on the Infinity Gauntlet called Avengers and the Infinity Gauntlet. Perhaps that is a hint of the Avengers movie plot. Time will tell. Unless you have the Gauntlet and change time your self we will know in 2012. I am amazed at the productions planed in the next couple years and look forward to the Marvel Universe revealed on the big screen. Till then, see you at the movies. Stay tuned comic faithful for more. 🙂 Walt
