It does though, cause think about it
1. By The Other's (I am just gunna start calling him chthon, as its easier to type lol) words, Thanos will opperate on a universal scale
2. The IG teased in Thor 1
3. TWO separate occasions which an infinity gauntlet was released, one "wasn't suppose to be seen yet!"
4. The first part of Thanos we see in avengers 1, is when he stands up, the first thing they show, is a bare hand, probably foreshadowing.
Whenever thanos' main climax occurs in the MCU, be it in avengers 2, it will more than likely have to do with the IG.
