It seems that Thanos can come back to Fortnite at some point in the future. While there is by no means any guarantee, new information has recently emerged related to the ever-popular multiplayer shooter that could tease the arrival of Mad Titan. That said, these details may also point to the emergence of a whole new character.
Recently discovered in the code to Fortnite, a data miner has found that a new animation for an extra large male character skin has recently been added to the game. The way this relates to Thanos is because the popular Marvel villain has previously been the only character in the story of Fortnite which has ever been listed as an XL skin in the game’s code. The fact that an XL skin of some kind has appeared in the code again suggests that Thanos may return.
An animation for an extra large male skin was added in 15.40.

As mentioned earlier, however, there is a chance that this animation can be linked to something completely different. Simply because Thanos has been the only XL character in Fortnite so far does not mean that it will be so forever. Because of this, what we can see here is the pea of a new character of the same size as Thanos who can get into Fortnite in short order.
That said, take what has been expressed here with the usual grain of salt. While it is usually a good source of information about future events, there are cases where details that have come from data extraction do not lead to anything in the game in question.
Still, if Thanos or any other extra large character is going to come to Fortnite in the near future we will obviously keep you aware of it. Until then, you can follow all our upcoming coverage of the game here.
