Thanos Returns to “Fortnite”

It was inevitable, but Thanos, and Infinity Gauntlet back bling are coming to Fortnite. Fans can get a chance to earn them early by competing in the Thanos Cup on June 21.

What’s Happening:

  • Marvel fans who also play Fortnite will have the opportunity to add to their characters when Thanos comes to the island.
  • Those who compete in the Thanos Cup on June 21 will have a chance to earn the costume early before it goes on sale later to everyone.
  • Fans looking to grab the new character should make sure to stay tuned, as they don’t last long and will be gone in a snap.

More Disney in Fortnite:

  • The latest franchise to get a Fortnite makeover was TRON, with character skins and even the Light Cycle.
  • The last Fortnite season saw The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda/Grogu enter the fray as Battle Pass rewards.
  • Past seasons have included Marvel and Star Wars characters including Wolverine, Thor, Tony Stark, Rey, Finn, and Kylo Ren.
  • In 2019, J.J. Abrams did an in-game interview with Geoff Keighley where a new Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer was revealed along with lightsabers and Star Wars characters in the game.

  • Players were also able to get the Infinity Gauntlet and other Marvel powers in promotion of Avengers: Endgame.
  • Wreck-It Ralph made an appearance back in 2018 to promote the film Ralph Breaks the Internet.

  • Also in 2018, players were able to get the Infinity Gauntlet and turn into Thanos in a special game mode promoting Avengers: Infinity War.

The free-to-play game is practically on everything, except Apple iPhones due to a dispute, so get on the battle bus with your friends and at this point basically all of your favorite Disney franchise characters.
