Fortnite leak reveals surprising Chris Hemsworth crossover in the works
A fresh Fortnite leak has suggested that Australian superstar Chris Hemsworth is coming to Fortnite. However, not in a way fans might expect.
The latest season of Fortnite concludes in September, but there have been plenty of brilliant surprises along the way. DC Comics have introduced heroes and villains alike, spanning over 70 years of comic book history.
The Rift Tour has allowed players across the world to experience interactive concerts. Events and challenges have and continue to arrive in spades.
Epic Games’ eye for collaboration continues to be unpredictable and it seems they’ve got another one up their sleeve.
Chris Hemsworth in Fortnite?
Extraction, released in 2020 via Netflix, is the directorial debut of Sam Hargrave. Having cut his teeth as a stunt coordinator with Marvel films, Extraction became his first solo project. The actioner also starred Marvel icon Chris Hemsworth in the lead role. While his Thor character has come to the battle royale, it is Extraction that is looking likely to be next.
Fortnite leaker Shiina shared a currently unreleased skin model that was acquired via datamining. Titled “Dusty”, the skin was thought to be part of the ongoing promotional event for Free Guy.
However, it didn’t take long for fans to realize that it didn’t quite fit with Free Guy, but rather seemed to come from the Netflix-backed movie.
