I was recently re-watching Avengers: Infinity War and I noticed that when Spider-Man, Ironman, Dr. Strange and the GoTG try to pull the gauntlet off of Thanos' hand, there is some sort of inscription on the gauntlet.

Below is a photo of it (pardon me if the image isn't very clear):

What does this inscription mean?

    @Valorum or maybe - "If found, return to Thanos" :P

    "I'm with stupid " in Dwarvish script.

The "writing" appears to be a simple repeating pattern. As you can see from the images below (showing the film prop used in Infinity War), the pattern on the side is a repetition of the pattern on the top and other side of the gauntlet.

    I had to triple check to fully recognise that it's indeed that pattern on the blurry picture.

    @Clockwork - The rivets make it look more like writing

    @Valorum There's a joke in there about making the movie more riveting but I can't think of it right now.

  • @Valorum thanks for pointing it out. It did seem like some elvish engraving in the beginning though 🙄 I always thought that since the Dwarves made it, they put some sort of signature/inscription just like they did on Mjolnir
