Fortnite leak reveals Black Panther, Captain Marvel & more Marvel skins
Fortnite’s crossover with Marvel will continue, with characters such as Captain Marvel and Black Panther found in the game files for Season 5.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 included a crazy crossover with Marvel Comics with Iron Man, Wolverine, and more, joining the popular battle royale’s roster. The season ended with the Marvel heroes and players teaming up to defeat Galactus.
Season 5 has continued on the crossover tradition, with the Mandalorian, Kratos, Master Chief, and characters from The Walking Dead joining the game. Fortnite isn’t done with Marvel properties, either.
Leaked Fortnite x Marvel skins
Dataminers have discovered that upcoming Marvel skins were discovered in the game files after the v15.10 update.
Skins for Black Panther, Taskmaster, and Captain Marvel will, reportedly, come to Fortnite in the “Marvel: Royalty & Warriors Pack.” Black Panther clearly being the Royalty element.
It was expected that a Black Panther skin would be coming to Fortnite last season, and fans were disappointed when that wasn’t the case. Epic may have decided to hold off after the tragic passing of Chadwick Boseman, but the skin is sure to be a hit.
Leaker, Hypex, also said that Black Panther might be an NPC with a ‘Wakanda Forever’ emote. The Hunters from Season 5 all appear as NPCs on the map, so this will likely be the case.
If you’re unfamiliar with Taskmaster, he is the villain of the upcoming Black Widow movie but has also featured in 2020’s The Avengers game and Spider-Man for PlayStation.
We’ll likely see more skins from Marvel and other franchises coming before the end of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5.
