The mad titan Thanos could be making another appearance in Season 5 of Fortnite, per recent leaks.

According to recent leaks, Thanos could finally be making another appearance in Fortnite as an obtainable skin via the item shop, something players would have loved in the Marvel x Fortnite crossover during Nexus War and even during the initial release of Avengers: Infinity War.

During the original addition of Thanos into Fortnite, we would have the Infinity Gauntlet randomly drop into the arena, transforming a lucky player into Thanos, capable of destroying all enemies in their path. When the player was killed, the gauntlet would drop, transforming the next lucky player into Thanos as well.

Following the success of the Avengers: Infinity War event, an LTM was added for Avengers: Endgame, bringing back Thanos and his army.

After the LTM disappeared soon after the launch of the film, players were left to guess when we would see the Mad Titan in all of his glory in the game again, perhaps as a purchasable skin in the item shop.

Well hopefully soon we will no longer have to guess, as popular leaker @Mang0e_ on Twitter has shared a recent finding in the game’s files, disclosing that “An animation for an Extra Large Male skin was added in 15.40”. He also added that “the only XL male skin that currently exists is Thanos.”

While we can’t be 100% sure that the skin in question is Thanos himself, we’d like to have some wishful thinking we’ll either see him in the item shop, or as a bounty hunter skin.

Only time will tell if this skin is Thanos or a brand new XL skin, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
