According to reports and fan theories, Epic Games could very well be working on a Captain Marvel-themed skin, with upgraded abilities, in Fortnite.
Adding fuel to this theory is the fact that it was previously confirmed by Mark Basso, an editor at Marvel Comics, that all the stories used in the game would be canon to the Marvel Comic Universe.
Sticking to the narrative within Fortnite, Galactus the Devourer is coming to the island. Thor, who has taken up the responsibility of saving the island, has called upon several heroes to come to his aid.
How does that prove the addition of Captain Marvel to Fortnite?
It doesn't. At this point, nothing is official, and everything is just a lot of fan theories. However, a lot of speculation has risen about the next superhero from the Marvel lore to be introduced in Fortnite being Captain Marvel.
To support this theory, fans have done some digging of their own, and the hints do point towards the same.
One of the popular Fortnite leakers, Sizzy's, tweets read:
"It could be a 'Captain Marvel' superpower(s). Perhaps we will also see her outfit in-game!"
If all these reports and theories do come true, then it is safe to say that Fortnite might very well be building towards an end of season event where all the heroes group up to take on Galactus in an attempt to save the island.
Many fans on Twitter have also expressed their views and opinions about this theory.
Some Fortnite fans came out in support of the theory with their own set of proofs:
At the end of the day, we can only hope, and try to find more pointers, to back this theory, as there has not yet been any official confirmation from Epic.
However, one thing is for sure. If Captain Marvel does make it into the Fortnite realm, it would be an absolute treat for fans! Also, we are still waiting to learn what further events might be lined up, or what happens when Galactus finally reaches the island. For now, we can only wait and hope.Published 06 Oct 2020, 17:15 IST
