Thanos is a returning character in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite as part of the base roster. He was revamped from Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and has a new moveset due to no longer have Infinity Stones on his moveset.
In Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, Thanos' armor is less flashy and has a more metallic look. The armor also has some lights emanating from it. His skin color is blue, as opposed to purple in MvC2. His helmet's horns are shorter.
At some point, after Ultron and Sigma merged into Ultron-Sigma, he was captured and was trapped in a cell, completely bonded. 88 days after the convergence, he was released from his cell, but not his bonds, by the heroes who were rebelling against Ultron-Sigma. He was transferred to the Avengers Tower, where he was released of his bonds and put in a different cell. While in custody, he tells them the locations of the other four Infinity Stones.
The Avengers Tower is attacked by Ultron-Sigma's forces. He potentially is able to break out of his cell and attacks Ultron-Sigma.
