**Major spoilers for Avengers: Endgame if you think toy leaks can hold merit.**
A new toy leak is always a big deal for these movies, but a new look at the Infinity Gauntlet shows us a lot more than we’d expect. Typically, we’d just have the toy leak and get to theorize from there, but today, Marvel released a teaser that shows our favorites splitting up and taking on separate missions.
So, could this mean that we’re going to get the Avengers going their separate ways to retrieve the Infinity Stones throughout time so that they can build their own Gauntlet before Thanos completes his?

If you look closely at the Gauntlet, it’s right-handed, a different color, and not destroyed, as Thanos’s Gauntlet was by the end of Infinity War. It can’t be the same Gauntlet that he used to snap away some of our favorites, so could this be what the Avengers use to stop him?
My only concern with this theory is that the Avengers don’t do so well when they’re separated. Does Captain America: Civil War not ring a bell to Steve Rogers and Tony Stark? It’s honestly the only way that makes sense, though, as to why they have a different version of the Gauntlet.
But why split up unless they’re going to try to tackle Thanos by taking on the Infinity Gauntlet and the Quantum Realm at the same time? When you think about it, it makes sense. Having the Avengers take on Thanos in a different timeline, when the time stone cannot be used because a different team of Avengers is going after the Gauntlet, effectively leaves Thanos as an open target.
But does that mean that they’re all going through the Quantum Realm together? Or are the Avengers who we see going to space not the same Avengers from this timeline? I have a feeling that there will be a lot of timey-wimey aspects of Endgame that may confuse us through our first viewing and lead into us watching it a second or third time, just to understand what’s going on.
Is this confirming that they’ll use both methods to take on Thanos? Or are they splitting up so that he doesn’t know they’re all coming? Either way, it can end up as a disaster if they don’t find a way to come and work together by the end. The Avengers are stronger together, even if they aren’t on the best of terms. After Captain America: Civil War, we have seen what can happen when they aren’t on the same team, and even though these two teams are clearly working together, it still scares me that they are separating at all.
The Avengers may be planning on taking on Thanos with their own Infinity Gauntlet and going back in time to steal the stones before Thanos can ever get them, but is that going to just make a bigger mess of things?
