Thanos coming to Fortnite tomorrow
Riding on the success of Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos will break his comic and movie mold and venture into the world of video games. The big baddy from the Summer blockbuster touches ground in Fortnite tomorrow.
EW reported the crossover that began with Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo playing rounds of Fortnite Battle Royale in between editing sessions. Eventually, a phone call to Epic Games creative director Donald Mustard was made.
Mustard said to EW,“Out of the blue, I get this call from Joe. And after a bit of geeking out over each other’s work, we start brainstorming these crazy ideas”. Shortly after, he said, the groundwork for Thanos in Fornite was figured out.

A new gauntlet known as “The Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup” will spawn the Infinity Gauntlet somewhere on Fortnite’s BattleRoyale map. One player will find and transform into Thanos and probably ruin everyone else’s day.
Infinity Gauntlet begins tomorrow, Tuesday, May 8, and you can access it for free across all platforms Fortnite is available.
