Donald Mustard, the Worldwide Creative Director at Epic Games, has seemingly teased a handful of other Marvel skins that could be coming to Fortnite. 

With the start of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4, Epic Games linked up with Marvel to bring some of the comic book giants biggest heroes and villains to the battle royale.

Some of them, like Iron Man and Doctor Doom have skins as well as points of interest in-game, while others just have skins and superhero abilities. 

Given that Marvel has such a huge number of characters that they could use, they aren’t just limited to the Avengers or Fantastic Four series’ – and it looks like more skins could be on the horizon.

Donald Mustard, who regularly teases Fortnite changes on his Twitter account, quote tweeted an image of some original Fortnite skins as well as some of the current Marvel cosmetics adorning the front cover of an upcoming comic. 

However, it didn’t take long for eagle-eyed fans to notice that there are some characters in the shot who haven’t yet been used as a skin in Fortnite – and that he might have dropped a not so subtle hint.

These characters include Captain Marvel and Ghost Rider – who are both on the right side of the image – as well as Black Panther who, like Iron Man and Doctor Doom, has a POI and abilities in-game.

While there’s no telling if these skins will actually be included in Fortnite, Epic have dropped these sort of teases before. Blade was included in a comic-themed image earlier in the season before being available in the Item Shop.

Ghost Rider was also included in that particular image,  as well as Venom – who has abilities in-game through the Marvel limited-time mode. So, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.

 

After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
