Marvel put props from Thor and Captain America on the exhibitor’s floor this past weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con. While Captain America’s shield and the helmets of Thor, Odin, and Loki are no big surprise, what was eye-catching is the Infinity Gauntlet. The weapon, which is one of the most powerful in the Marvel Universe, is actually not from the Thor or Captain America comics, but rather from the world of Silver Surfer. You can click over to Wikipedia to learn more about it. The gauntlet will feature in Kenneth Branagh’s Thor. Much like the Cosmic Cube seen in the Captain America footage, it’s one of Odin’s most treasured items. Could it be the item that Red Skull found in the box at the end of the clip we saw? As best as I can remember, I don’t remember seeing it in the Thor trailer we saw.
Hit the jump to check out the photos of the props. Thor opens on May 6, 2011 and Captain America opens on July 22, 2011.
