Google ‘Thanos’ and watch what happens…
Go to Google search. Type in “Thanos.” Click the little cartoon Infinity Gauntlet on the right side.

Call it an Easter egg or Snap Engine Optimization. It’s a fun little promotion for the last movie that needs any promoting at this point, having just sailed past $60 million for the biggest-ever Thursday preview.
