The latest Fortnite leaks reveal three new Marvel skins, including Black Panther, and one DC skin, which is Green Arrow from the live-action TV show.
Fortnite may have moved on from its Marvel-themed season, which concluded with a record-shattering event centered around Galactus, but it was always obvious that Epic Games and Marvel wouldn’t stop collaborating afterwards. In fact, it has recently been discovered that three more Marvel skins are planned for the game.
These skins, which are part of what is being called the Marvel: Royalty and Warriors Pack, were discovered by reputable Fortnite leakers ShiinaBR and Guille_GAG and consist of Captain Marvel, Black Panther, and Taskmaster.
Captain Marvel and Black Panther, despite being among some of Marvel’s most popular Avengers, were noticeably absent from Season 4. The latter was alluded to with a Wakandan panther statue and his Kinetic Shockwave superpower, but it’s nice to see both the King of Wakanda and the part-Kree warrior actually making an appearance, with their designs clearly drawing on how they’re depicted in the movies.
As for Taskmaster, while he will be making his MCU debut in the Black Widow movie as an antagonist, his Fortnite appearance draws on how he looks in the comics. He especially resembles his design in Marvel vs Capcom 3, though it’s more apparent that he’s wearing a skull mask, as opposed his head actually looking like a skull.
Epic’s creative director Donald Mustard previously stated that there are still years’ worth of Marvel content planned for Fortnite, but that isn’t stopping the company from incorporating DC characters either, as a Green Arrow skin has also been leaked.
Apparently, some PlayStation 4 players reported suddenly having access to the skin, which is based on how the character appeared in the live-action Arrow TV show. Footage of the skin can be found online and it is certainly strange to see the character wielding any weapons that aren’t his traditional bow and arrow. He still has a quiver of arrows strapped to his back and he also comes with a pickaxe based on one of his trick arrows, specifically the infamous boxing glove one.
At the time of writing, it’s unknown when exactly all these skins will officially release. Considering some players have already been using the Green Arrow one, maybe that is coming relatively soon.
Fortnite is already chock-full of new crossovers, with Season 5 including the Mandalorian, Master Chief, and characters from The Walking Dead, with more apparently promised to come in the future. With the stunning variety of guest characters joining the battle-royale, it looks as if there is almost no limit to who will appear next.
Fortnite is available on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
