In the final battle of Avengers: Endgame, Tony Stark manages to steal the Infinity Stones from Thanos’s gauntlet and insert them in his own glove. We don’t see how he pries them loose from Thanos’s gauntlet, but it was done so smoothly that Thanos himself does not see or feel it happening.
We then see the stones hovering over the glove for a moment before they settle into place and give Tony vast power.
What was causing the hovering? Was it the same effect that allowed the stones to the stolen in the first place? Was the glove specially made for holding the stones? If so, when was the plan made for Tony to take the stones and why did they think he would be able to wield them (the point is made earlier that only the Hulk can do so without being destroyed). I thought Scarlett Witch might have been involved, but she had been dead until moments before and there was no chance for Tony to coordinate plans with her. So, basically, how did the stones end up in the glove?
