While it’s not known whether the gauntlet is completely useless or just damaged and unstable, it’s clear that Thanos won’t be able to hold off the Avengers with just that, seeing as even his fully-powered infinity gauntlet in perfect condition wasn’t able to stop Stormbreaker. So it seems unrealistic that Thanos would bring that gauntlet back for round 2.
The Russo brothers have come out since the release of the film and confirmed that in using the Infinity Gauntlet Thanos has permanently damaged both his own body and the gauntlet itself.
While it’s hard to make a weapon seem more impressive than the infinity gauntlet we did see that even without his gauntlet Thanos is not one to underestimate as he took out the hulk, unarmed, without any problems. It’ll be interesting to see just how powerful he’ll be with his new sword.
How well do you think this will hold up against Thor’s new weapon, Stormbreaker? Let us know in the comments!

Infinity War – 12 Best Theories For What Will Happen In ‘Avengers 4’
12. Gamora is the Key
Although the deaths at the end of Infinity War are set up to be reversible (at least we hope), every death prior to this feels like it may be permanent. This includes Gamora, whom Thanos sacrifices in order to attain the Soul Stone. However, based on the ending of Infinity War, which sees Thanos transported to another plane of existence after using the Infinity Gauntlet, there’s reason to believe that Gamora’s soul at least is still intact.
Thanos encounters a young Gamora, who asks him about the cost of his actions and there’s reason to believe that this scene takes place inside the Soul Stone (the directors have basically confirmed this). The thinking goes that if Gamora is able to escape from this realm, it would bring an imbalance to the universe and bring about a chain of events that could lead to Thanos’ actions being reversed. Maybe she could even get a hold of the Infinity Gauntlet herself and exact revenge on her twisted father!
