Fortnite's Next Big Crossover: Deadpool & Wolverine Collaboration Rumored for Summer Release!

Rumors suggest that the next major collaboration in Fortnite will be with the highly anticipated new Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film "Deadpool & Wolverine." These rumors arise from the fact that the two stars of the upcoming film, Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, have been seen visiting certain Fortnite content creators, possibly indicating that a Deadpool & Wolverine crossover is set to hit the massively popular Battle Royale game this summer.

While Fortnite's success is anchored by impressive movement mechanics and a wide variety of weapons and items, a significant part of its appeal comes from Epic Games' willingness to collaborate with other global brands and franchises. Since its original release in 2017, fans have enjoyed numerous crossovers in Fortnite, ranging from unique skins based on characters from the Star Wars universe to full-fledged collaborations with popular anime series. Just like in the real world, Marvel is a major presence in Fortnite, with players having access to several iconic heroes and villains, such as Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Black Widow, and Thanos, to name a few. With the highly anticipated release of Marvel's third Deadpool film, it's likely that the company is looking to collaborate once again with Epic Games.

Shiina, a popular source for Fortnite news and leaks, recently discussed the possibility of a Deadpool & Wolverine collaboration in Fortnite. This wouldn't be the first time that both Deadpool and Wolverine have appeared in the game, as Epic Games recently released a new Weapon X skin in Fortnite's item shop.

"Deadpool & Wolverine" serves as the third installment in Marvel's Deadpool franchise. In this highly anticipated new film, Deadpool and Wolverine team up to solve a problem with the Multiverse. While specific plot details remain top secret, it's assumed that "Deadpool & Wolverine" will be a landmark moment for the MCU as a whole, with dozens of Marvel characters rumored to make cameo appearances, particularly the X-Men.

Fortnite already boasts a large selection of X-Men characters, including Cable, Psylocke, and Gambit, with the game's current Chapter 5 Season 3: Wrecked update prominently featuring Magneto as an NPC and an unlockable skin. This legendary Marvel character recently became available to unlock for those with the battle pass, but players must complete several quests to add Magneto to their Fortnite locker. Centered around a massive wasteland, Chapter 5 Season 3: Wrecked places significant emphasis on vehicle traversal and combat. Alongside vehicles, several powerful items have also been added to Fortnite, such as Magneto Power and Nitro Fists.
