The latest batch of MultiVersus leaks has been confirmed by the developers, with DC’s Black Adam and Gremlin’s villain Stripe coming to the game.

MultiVersus season 1 is upon us and with it comes even more leaks about upcoming characters set to join the already stacked cast of playable fighters. The latest leak hints that two villainous characters will be coming to MultiVersus.

The first fighter to be leaked was none other than Black Adam, one of DC’s most well-known villains. This addition always made sense given that the character is set to make his live-action debut later in the year. In the new Black Adam movie, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be taking on the mantle of Black Adam, with the film hitting theatres on October 20, 2022.

Stripe, also known as Mowhawk, is the main villain of the 1984 cult classic film Gremlins. A previous leak about MultiVersus earlier in the month did also mention the inclusion of the character. A second leak, accompanied by photographic evidence, only foreshadowed the possibility of Stripe popping up in MultiVersus in the future.

This leak comes from a series of images posted on Twitter that show off an image for MultiVersus off the Xbox store. The artwork places Black Adam and Stripe front and center with other characters already playable in the game in the background.

MultiVersus Season 1 characters revealed

Since that time, MultiVersus devs have moved to confirm the speculation holds water.

They said: “What’s better than officially kicking off #MultiVersus Season 1? Announcing Black Adam and Stripe are also coming this season. You’re welcome.”

No exact date on when these characters will be added to the game has been announced. However, with the Black Adam film set to release next month, it could be that his inclusion in MultiVersus coincides with the film release.

Moreover, devs recently shared that new characters would be arriving “sooner than expected.”

Season 1 of MultiVersus has just gone live. Before this, the open beta version of the game broke records for the number of players it had logged on. For all the latest news, updates, and leaks about MultiVersus, check out Dexerto’s full coverage here.
