Holy cow!! That's insane. So do you think they might do something like that--give Thor the Power Gem, send him into Warrior's Madness, and have some other characters have to take him on? By-and-by, it appears we will have Thanos and Adam Warlock introduced to the MCU (though, alas, not the Silver Surfer).
I don't think they'll get into individual Gems just yet, no. Some people still theorize that Loki was using the Mind Gem in Avengers, but the jury's still out on that. My own personal view has always been that Thor1 established that the Gauntlet is already made and sitting in Odin's treasury, so the Gems are already gathered there.

Warrior's Madness would be an interesting add to any Thor movie, but I don't think we'll see it in Thor 2 yet; simply because they're still trying to develop Thor in the MCU as a true good-guy hero. Giving him a Hulk-like out-of-control berserker rage wouldn't help much on that front.

Even though it's a right-handed glove?
Eh, I wouldn't read too much into that. A lot of posters in the Hype (and other sites) have already, and try to use that as "proof" that the IG in Thor1 (and in the SDCC display, and in the Kevin Feige interview....) can't possibly be "the real thing" since comic-book IG is a leftie. But I think that just boils down to the fact that Marvel Studios didn't research every single minute detail before going with it....the most important thing to remember is that in the Avengers movie, it's Thanos' RIGHT hand that is conspicuously bare. So I'm pretty sure the MCU version of the Gauntlet is a rightie.

Indeed, we may well see this element 10 months hence . Now, in Fear Itself, Thor ultimately is killed. Do you think they will do that here? I suppose that *is* "sacrificing everything to save us all." It's hard for me to believe they will. (not least because that figured into Thor1)
Thor was resurrected just a few issues later; superheroes never die in the comics.

And no, I don't think they'll let Thor die this early in the franchise. Even a "superhero death" that's retconned a film or two later. Again, Thor is still developing as a franchise, so it's too risky to start pulling tricks like that on the audience.
