Fortnite Boss Appears In Avengers: Endgame's Re-Released Footage

Avengers: Endgame returned to theatres this weekend with bonus footage–and included in that is Epic Games boss Donald Mustard. Mustard is worldwide creative director at the Fortnite studio, which has previously partnered with Marvel for an Avengers: Infinity War event in Fortnite: Battle Royale, as well as the release of Avengers-themed skins around the debut of Endgame. Coinciding with the latter movie’s re-release, Mustard revealed on Twitter that he appears in the new footage for 3.2 seconds as a pony-tailed character.

Mustard shared a photo of himself in costume, chatting to Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jr. and Doctor Strange actor Benedict Cumberbatch. A second photo posted by Mustard’s wife, Laura Mustard, shows them all hanging out with directors Joe and Anthony Russo.

In another tweet, Mustard says he thought about stealing his sling ring, but the film crew had security locked down. The Russo brothers are big fans of Fortnite; they’ve worn Fortnite t-shirts in various media appearances, and they even put a Fortnite scene in Endgame.

Endgame made a further $5.5 million in the US and Canada this weekend, and a few million more overseas, pushing its total lifetime haul to $2.76 billion. That’s about $27 million shy of Avatar’s overall all-time record; it’s a record that Endgame may never beat.
