Cape Town – Go google the word "Thanos"  – but only after you’ve finished reading this article – for a very cool interactive Easter egg that cleverly ties into the epic conclusion of Disney and Marvel’s sprawling Avengers: Endgame film saga.

When you open the Google search page and type in Thanos and hit Enter, on the right-hand side of the page under the information about the archvillain, you will notice the Infinity Gauntlet, complete with the different stones.

To make what will happen next even better, make sure you switch on the audio for your desktop computer or smartphone.

Now click on the image of the Gauntlet (and don’t be scared that half of the people in the universe including Spider-Man might disappear). Also, don’t do anything or press anything else for about 10 seconds and just keep looking at the screen.

Look closely once you’ve clicked at what Thanos does to your results on the Google search page and also keep an eye on the number of results at the top – many of it is wiped from existence similar to what happens in Infinity War!

Cleverly, The Thanos Google Gauntlet wipeout also mostly targets spoilers – articles deleted from the top trending search results are mostly ones that contain details about Avengers: Endgame.

Even more fun is that you can click on the Infinity Gauntlet again that then glows green with the Time Stone, and then does something else. 

Avengers: Endgame with a running time of over three hours and that just opened globally including South Africa to glowing reviews and fan praise, is the hugely-anticipated sequel to last year’s Avengers: Infinity War and the concluding chapter to Marvel’s sprawling, so-called "Infinity Saga" superhero films that Marvel carefully plotted and rolled out for over a decade since the first Iron Man film in 2008.
