Okay, so I was going through images and came accross this...:

No Caption Provided

The ice giants who invaded Asgard literally run right past the Infinity Gauntlet without so much as a pause... I'm sorry, but, why on Earth(Er..Asgard?) would a race like the ice giants run right past an object that literally would wipe Asgard out of the universe...

Thoughts?

It had no gems, and they wanted their casket. Maybe they didn't even know what it was.

The Villains in the MCU are stupid

Maybe it was just a replica. I don't think Odin would be that stupid to have the real IG lying around like that.

By that logic why would he have a replica? He doesn't seem like the kind of guy that likes to decorate with fakes

@saint_wildcard: So you do think Odin would leave the IG lying around like that?

I honestly think it's just fan service that they thought would look cool and no one would think twice about. Fan Service= f**k logic

It was mainly a Easter Egg for the fans for the Infinity Gauntlet story-line at the time.The Infinity Gauntlet will come in play in the future movies.

Easter Egg.

And, why would random Ice Giants know what it is? I'm content with them being ignorant of that.

Either 1) The Frost (not ice) giants don't know what it is, or 2) PIS.

Either way it's just a little easter eggs for fans that I don't think should be taken too seriously.

I agree with the others in which it was just a cool item to have in the scene and not supposed to have any significance. Even if it was really meant to be an actual part of the story and not just a fun Easter Egg, I doubt that it was the completed gauntlet with all the gems. At the end of Thor 2, they gave the Ether to the Collector because it was unwise to keep two of the stones together.

It was empty. They probably didn't even know what it was, the same way they didn't know what the Eye of Agamotto was.

Thanos is feared throughout the Galaxy. They probably know what will happen if they take the gauntlet....with no gems in it. They were thinking smaller- the Casket Of Ancient Winters.
