When Marvel's Thanos crashed the world of Fortnite back in Season Four to celebrate Infinity War's arrival in theaters, players of the Battle Royale game had a field day finding the gauntlet to harness his true power. If a recent leak proves true, it looks like the powerhouse villain may be making a triumphant return.
With The Game Awards kicking off tonight and Epic Games promising big news outside of their Season 7's release, the most recent leak does seem to point towards this being the big announcement. Also according to the leak, the illusive Avengers 4 trailer will finally be making its debut which furthers the likelihood that this Limited Time Mode featuring the MCU baddie will be making his triumphant return.

This could be a sign of Thanos LTM returning soon, Tomorrow Avengers 4 trailers drops out #Fortnite pic.twitter.com/4dcts6oQsO— FBR_News (@FBR_Fortnitee) December 6, 2018
Another possibility is that this could be a feature added to the Playground mode. The team recently made a ton of changes to how Playground works, including minigames, a shooting range, and much more. It wouldn't be too much of a stretch to see Thanos come into play in that mode, giving players a chance to harness the power of the Infinity Stones once more.
Fortnite is now available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and select Android devices. Would you like see the epic return of the Marvel baddie, or is it time for something else entirely? Join in on the conversation in the comment section below!
