Fortnite leakers have hinted that Captain Marvel star Brie Larson could be coming to the game following theories that she secretly voiced The Paradigm in a recent live event.

It seems that no person or property in popular culture is off the table when it comes to an appearance in Fortnite. Since the battle royale’s launch back in 2017, some of the most recognizable faces in gaming, film, and TV have arrived, from Indiana Jones to John Cena.

One of the biggest crossovers, however, took place at the beginning of Chapter 3, when a long-running fan theory that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was playing The Foundation.

Now, it looks as though another high-profile actor could be coming to Fortnite, with Brie Larson set to appear as a fellow member of The Seven — The Paradigm.

The mysterious character first appeared as Fortnite skin back in 2019 but has played a more prevalent role recently since being unveiled as part of the heroic group. Like the rest of The Seven, Paradigm was silent in most of her appearances, leaving fans speculating who was behind the helmet.

That all changed in the Collison live event that concluded Chapter 3 Season 2, where The Paradigm spoke for the very first time. Ever since, players have believed that the voice they heard was Brie Larson and that the actress would appear in the game later down the line.

Larson is a well-known Fortnite fan, and even had her own Locker bundle back in Chapter 2 Season 6, so it’s not hard to imagine that she’d jump at the chance to appear in the game herself.

Her arrival seemed to all but confirmed when Fortnite leaker Hypex shared that Epic’s Chief Creative Officer, Donald Mustard, recently began following the Oscar winner on Twitter.

This may seem like a small detail, but Mustard also started following The Rock in the lead-up to the reveal that he was playing The Foundation. If this turns out to be true, there’s a good chance we’ll see The Paradigm take off her helmet in the Chapter 3 Season 3 finale and finally reveal that it was Larson all along.

If The Foundation reveal is anything to go by, there’s also a good chance that an unmasked version of the character with the actress’ likeness will be available as a Fortnite skin in Season 4, either on the Epic Store or through the Battle Pass.

It’s worth keeping in mind that this is still just speculation for now, but don’t be surprised to see the Captain Marvel star make her Fortnite debut very soon.
