Thanos Might Be Coming Back To ‘Fortnite’ In Time For ‘Avengers: Endgame’

Thanos Might Be Coming Back To ‘Fortnite’ In Time For ‘Avengers: Endgame’

Thanos, the supervillain responsible for taking out half of humanity (and a healthy chunk of its superheroes) in the Marvel films, is coming back to Fortnite. At least, that's the case if newly datamined Kill Feed lines are to be believed.

Fortnite dataminer Skin-Tracker pulled out a batch of new Kill Feed messages that are being added to Fortnite Battle Royale. These are the lines that appear in the chat box when players are killed, adding a little flavour to a player's death - 'Celia knocked out Garry with a biplane', for example.

The line in question that suggests Thanos is coming back is "{playerName} yielded to the <Sarcasm>POWER of Thanos ({killer}):

In May last year, around the the release of Avengers: Infinity War, Epic Games and Marvel partnered to run a limited time mode in Fortnite. Players would fight over the Infinity Gauntlet, the big blue villain's trademark glove, to become superpowered. If you grabbed the gauntlet you became Thanos, unlocking his mega punch ability that would knock back enemy players and could smash through buildings. You could also fly up into the air and slam down into the ground to knockback groups of enemies. Plus, you had a massive jump and could hit people with a health-sapping blast.

These newly-added Kill Feed lines suggest the villain is set to return, which would make a lot of sense, considering Avengers: Endgame is due to release on April 25.
