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. Since then, we've had several major leaks that suggest that Thanos may be returning, with even more data files found following the most recent update!
The most recent leak is a two-parter. First, we've got a leaked sound byte:
Heres a new sound file called "Carmine_Disapear_01"

With the leaks coming in at a higher rate, many are speculating that Epic Games will reveal his return soon. Given that this most recent update really had nothing to offer other than an Infinity Blade, that speculation may ring true afterall.
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.
