Fortnite Leak Reveals Possible Marvel Crossover
A Fortnite leak has revealed that Chapter 4 Season 3’s possible first collaboration will be with Spider-Man. Fortnite has a long list of crossovers with pop culture names that go far beyond gaming. Among these names, Epic Games has found a particularly successful partnership between Fortnite and Disney properties.
A good example is Fortnite’s newest crossover with Star Wars, which proved to be bigger than fans could have imagined. Dubbed “the ultimate Star Wars experience in Fortnite,” the Find the Force event has its mini battle pass with rewards to unlock. In this event, Fortnite players can get the Coruscant Guard outfit, and even the villain Darth Maul got his own skin. Players will also be able to get other themed looks straight from the in-game store, giving their characters the appearance of Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala.
In the newest Fortnite leak, popular insider HYPEX reveals that Spider-Man will be the first collab in Chapter 4 Season 3. HYPEX notes that the collab will likely be with Miles Morales, one of the strongest multiverse versions of Spider-Man, or connected to the upcoming Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse movie. The leaker further detailed that Epic is working on the crossover that includes a mythic weapon, two pickaxes, two backblings, an emote, and two skins codenamed “Hero & Menace Universal.”

Most likely Miles, or at least related to the Spider-Verse movie releasing next Month. Lines up with S3's release too. pic.twitter.com/UYwJs0Wfsb

Even though the leak did not reveal the characters involved, the timing of the information leads Fortnite players to strongly believe that it may indeed be something related to Across the Spider-Verse. The new Spider-Man movie hits theaters on June 2, while Fortnite Season 2 will end on June 9. It is worth noting that Fortnite Season 2 was originally going to end on June 2. With the date changes, both the new Spider-Man movie and the new Fortnite season will be released just a few days apart, avoiding the clash of premieres on the same day.
Fortnite’s latest leak is big news for gamers, as the potential for content to be released is huge. Miles Morales has costumes that are quite interesting and is a very charismatic character. Players are also speculating that the “Menace Universal” skin may be for Spider-Man 2099. Originally Spider-Man 2099 is a hero, but in the trailer for the new movie, he and Morales appear in conflict. Going further, Fortnite’s collaboration with Spider-Man could be a big Spider-Verse-themed event, including skins of other related characters like the beloved Spider-Ham.
Fortnite is available for Mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
