While Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season ended a few weeks ago, a new leak has emerged showing that there are still plenty of superheroes making their way into the game such as Taskmaster, Captain Marvel, and Black Panther. Players anticipated these character skins to make their way into the game during the fourth season but their late arrival is better than not coming at all.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 was the first of its kind, as the entirety of the season showcased an expansive crossover with Marvel Comics. Seasonn4’s battle pass gave players with exclusive Marvel-themed skins and multiple other items, and the storyline emphasized Marvel’s most popular heroes battling it against Galactus.
While the list of superheroes introduced during the season wasn’t able to fulfill every fans’ Marvel character wishlist, the creative director of the game revealed that Season 4 was only the start of years’ worth of Marvel crossover content.

According to reputable Fortnite dataminer FrenzyLeaks on Twitter, a new retail pack will be heading to the in-game store within the next few weeks which will include skins for Taskmaster, Captain Marvel, and Black Panther.
Each cosmetic will come with its own harvesting tool and back bling as well as two gliders. Based on the leaks, the Marvel Royalty and Warriors Pack will be releasing around December 22 and will be priced at $25. This is more than a bargain when comparing the possible prices of every item individually.
Notably, the skin for Black Panther was one of the most requested Marvel heroes that players wanted to see during the last season. In light of MCU star Chadwick Boseman’s recent and shocking death, some players agreed that this would have been a perfect way to honor his passing.
Previously, now-extinct leaks also claimed that Black Panther was still arriving in the fourth season because he was given his own map landmark, but these speculations never came to fruition. However, Black Panther will finally be making his debut in Fortnite along with two other iconic Marvel characters.
As the game continues to develop upon its already expansive collection of Marvel skins, it’s interesting to think who could be the next coming in gaming’s most ambitious crossover. Captain Marvel and Black Panther were instant picks for developer Epic Games since they were so popular from the recent blockbuster Marvel movies, but Taskmaster is somewhat of a welcome pick. The mix of obscure and popular Marvel characters keep the probabilities open that virtually any villain or hero could actually make their way into Fortnite.
