That's what Bob Chipman ("Movie Bob" at the escapistmagazine.com) seems to think. But I'm not sure--if I was Thanos--that I'd just let a dude like Loki to have something like that. Especially if I'm planning on eventually pimping my gauntlet with a full set.
But then again, Thanos doesn't strike me as the most discriminating of intellects. If he was, he'd dump Death for a girl with some meat on her bones...
I mean, it does seem like it was kinda on-the-nose, with the whole influencing their minds
bit. Maybe Thanos really is just a cosmic version of a fool and was perfectly fine with Loki's untrustworthy ass having one of the things that forms the most powerful item in the universe...just for the purpose of blowing a few people and buildings up. I'm sure Loki would have given it back if Thanos asked nicely.
