First it was leaked, and now it’s official. Fortnite Season 4, Chapter 2 is going to be Marvel-themed and will introduce an exclusive Thor skin set.

This was confirmed with a new teaser video from Epic Games on August 21, which was posted a couple of hours after a teaser image leaked on the Nintendo eShop.

There has been talk of the next Fortnite Battle Royale season taking on yet another superhero theme for some time, with Thor being mentioned by countless leakers before the confirmation came through.

Epic, however, had been radio silent on the matter. They recently revealed a very casual looking Jonesy skin that looked something like Thor in The Avengers: Endgame, although some fans may have been accused of clutching at straws for that one at the time. Then, data miners like HYPEX started to find clues in the files.

Fortnite and Marvel have had many a cross-over in recent years.

The official Twitter account posted the following animated graphic, showing Thor’s face etched into the famous Fortnite logo.

It also states above it that the next season will begin on August 27, as expected.

A frenzy of Twitter posts hit all Fortnite player timelines when the discovery was first made on the Nintendo eShop, as it was leaked a few hours prior.

Many might have been wondering if the leak was real at first, because after all not all leaks turn out to be true. Though, some Nintendo Switch players had been posting videos to social media showing it off.

As seen below, in a tweet from Fortnite leaker FortTory, Twitter user BungDaBada was just one of many to have stumbled upon the teaser.

With everything now ready to go for Season 4, and the Marvel theme having been given the green light, it remains to be seen what changes are to come.

For all we know, a big map shakeup could be in the works. We’ll have to wait and see.

Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
