The Google search engine is joining in the hype around the release of Avengers: Endgame by introducing a special Easter egg.

Type the name of villain Thanos into the search engine and click on the gold Infinity Gauntlet that appears on the right of the screen, and half the search results disappear.

For those not up to date on the Avengers universe – in previous film Infinity War, Thanos used the powerful Infinity Stones (of which there are six) to wipe out half of all life in the universe.
