Marvel’s Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Taskmaster are coming to Fortnite as part of an all-new retail bundle, according to recent leaks.
While Fortnite‘s Marvel Comics-themed season came to an end a few weeks ago, a new leak has revealed that there are still plenty of Marvel characters making their way to the game, including Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Taskmaster. Fans expected these skins to make their way into Fortnite during Season 4, but their late arrival is better than never.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 was the first of its kind, as the entirety of the season featured an extensive crossover with Marvel Comics. The season’s Battle Pass rewarded players with exclusively Marvel-themed skins and various other cosmetics, and the storyline focused on Marvel’s mightiest heroes facing off against Galactus. While the laundry list of heroes included in the season wasn’t able to fulfill every player’s Marvel character wishlist, Fortnite‘s creative director stated that this season was only the beginning of years’ worth of crossover content.

According to Fortnite data miner FrenzyLeaks on Twitter, a new retail bundle will be headed to the in-game shop within the next couple of weeks, which will include skins for Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Taskmaster. Each skin will come with its own back bling and harvesting tool, and the bundle comes with two gliders. According to the leaks, the Marvel Royalty and Warriors Pack will release on or around December 22nd and will cost players $25. This is more than a bargain when comparing the potential prices of each item individually (though it can’t quite compare with the value of the previous season’s Knockout Series).

Notably, Black Panther’s skin was one of the most highly requested Marvel characters that fans wanted to see in Fortnite Season 4. In light of MCU star Chadwick Boseman’s recent and tragic death, some players argued that this would have been a suitable way to honor his passing. Previous, now-defunct leaks also claimed that Black Panther was still coming in Season 4 because he was given his own map landmark, but these rumors never came to fruition. However, Black Panther will finally be making his way into Fortnite alongside two other iconic Marvel characters.
As Fortnite continues to build upon its already massive library of Marvel skins, it’s exciting to think of who could be next in gaming’s most ambitious crossover machine. Black Panther and Captain Marvel were obvious picks for Epic Games since they’re fan-favorites from recent blockbuster MCU films, but Taskmaster is somewhat of welcome left-field pick. The mix of well-known and obscure Marvel characters keep the possibilities open that virtually any hero or villain could eventually make their way to Fortnite.
Fortnite is available on all platforms.
