Although this gauntlet was later confirmed to be fake by Hela (Cate Blanchett) in Thor: Ragnarok, fans were a little confused as to how Odin knew about the gauntlet itself, as it had been previously confirmed that the gauntlet was made for Thanos.
Speaking out on the matter, one fan on Reddit suggested Odin had already been a part of some sort of infinity war many years ago.
Reddit user Night-Monkey15 wrote: “In Thor: Ragnarok Hela knocks over a fake infinity gauntlet (we all know that) but this leaves two questions, 1. Why did Hela recognize it?
“And 2. Why did Odin have it? Well in Infinity War we learn that the gauntlet was made just for Thanos, but if Odin had one then Thanos didn’t come up with the idea he simply had it made, or remade.
“Hela recognizes it but she has been trapped for thousands of years meaning some time before she was trapped a real gauntlet was made and probably used, but by who? I don’t know.”
