Google drops Thanos easter egg as ‘Avengers: Endgame’ releases today

As Avengers: Endgame zooms into theaters today, the hype about the film is reaching heights. Remember the scene from Avengers: Infinity War where with just one snap of Thanos’ finger, some of our beloved superheroes were disintegrated leaving fans heartbroken? Well, Google has taken that up and presented it with a twist! Google has unveiled an Avengers Easter egg that unleashes the destructive power of the Mad Titan on the web page. Since its activation, all one needs to do to experience this trick, has to search for “Thanos” on Google and click on his Infinity stones’-studded gauntlet, placed on the right-hand side of the screen in the information box. The moment the Thanos gauntlet is clicked, the magic will begin as all the search results will slowly fade away and turn into dust. The Google page will automatically move up and down as the results tabs disappear. Google also displays the reduction in the number of search results from around 87 million to 43 million. But that’s not all. Once the results disappear, another click on the gauntlet will make everything go back to how it was in the beginning, restored and intact. Thanos first appeared in Marvel Comics’ The Invincible Iron Man number 55 in February 1973. He made his debut in the first Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) ensemble movie The Avengers in 2012. Also known as the “Mad Titan”, Josh Brolin brought the character to life on the silver screen in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, until which point, the character only made cameos in preceding Avengers’ movies.
