A new pair of Marvel skins could be coming to Fortnite sometime soon, and they supposedly focus on the MCU’s most powerful couple.
Fortnite has had no shortage of crossover skin additions, though its Marvel content is second-to-none. It appears that a full, Marvel-themed season of Fortnite was not enough though, as a leak implies that two more heroes are on the way.
According to a new set of leaks, skins based on the Disney+ series WandaVision may be heading to Fortnite soon. With the MCU show taking the world by storm and keeping fans invested due to its unique premise and dark reveals, it makes sense for Fortnite to capitalize on its popularity as soon as possible. Reputable Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR has opened a window for the heroes’ debut to be possible, as three Fortnite sets are currently encrypted. With two being hunter sets, fans are theorizing that the third is for WandaVision.
The name of the third piece of leaked Fortnite content is AcutePanic, something that MCU fan and Fortnite player Eli associates with the show. While believing it could be Wanda purely because she’s “panicking the whole time” seems like a bit of a stretch, the format used for these encrypted sets matches WandaVision’s unique title. On top of that, the sheer number of Marvel skins inside the game already would surely make Wanda and her husband Vision feel at home inside Fortnite.
acutePanic could be wanda right???? cause she’s panicking the whole time

If WandaVision skins do come, it will be interesting to see what medium they take their inspiration from. Though it would make sense for a proper WandaVision pack to have the designs of the MCU versions of the characters, past Marvel skins have focused on bringing the comic book versions of the heroes to life instead of the on-screen interpretations. Still, with DC’s Fortnite content having a mix of live action and comic-inspired skins, it would be entirely possible for a WandaVision pack to borrow more from the MCU than past skins have.
Regardless of whether Wanda gets her Scarlet Witch name or costume in Fortnite, it now seems possible for the hero to join the game’s massive roster of characters. When she does arrive, it will be interesting to see how Epic Games uses her. While she could just be another Fortnite crossover character that enters through the Zero Point, Wanda could be used to create a new reality in Fortnite — just like she does in her show and in the comics. Allowing for radically different versions of original Fortnite characters, plenty of new outfits could come from this alternate reality, making for a fun season of content.
Hopefully, this interpretation of the leak is accurate, as many fans of WandaVision would surely love to play as the two main characters inside the battle royale game. For now, though, Fortnite players are left to theorize about the skin’s existence in the same way fans have been theorizing about the show.
Fortnite is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
