Rumors indicate Fortnite will collaborate with Marvel’s Doctor Strange in the upcoming season.
Epic Games and Marvel have maintained a strong relationship through the years, and that will continue in Chapter 3 Season 2 according to rumors in the Fortnite scene. The latest Fortnite x Marvel collaboration will center around Doctor Strange, presumably in a cross-promotion for the upcoming movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olson and Benedict Wong — Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
While Epic has not confirmed, these rumors come from reliable sources within the scene. Today, we’ll provide you with everything we know so far ahead of Chapter 3 Season 2.
Fortnite x Marvel Continues with Doctor Strange
YouTube Tabor Hill posted a video earlier today, where he analyzed the recently leaked Chapter 3 Season 2 Battle Bus picture. In the video, he repeats the word “strange” multiple times. The rumor mill started shortly after in anticipation of the new season.
Fortnite leaker HYPEX took to Twitter with his reaction to Tabor Hill’s video. Like many others, HYPEX pointed out the repeated use of “strange” and connected it to a potential collaboration with the Marvel superhero. Fellow leaker ShiinaBR followed HYPEX’s tweet confirmed that he learned from inside sources that Fortnite x Doctor Strange is official.
What Could Come of Fortnite x Doctor Strange?
The timing could not be better, considering the upcoming Doctor Strange film due to release in May. The latest Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) entry will expand upon the multiverse theory introduced in Spider-Man: No Way Home. It’s unclear whether the Marvel sorcerer will become a Battle Pass character. Either way, multiple possibilities could occur with this crossover.
Doctor Strange has seen many iterations in comics and film. Moreover, Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a The Scarlet Witch, appears in the movie, so perhaps we’ll see her as a Fortnite skin. Ultimately, we’ll have to wait and see what Epic has planned for this collaboration.
Fortnite x Doctor Strange would mark the second Marvel movie crossover since Chapter 3 began. The last collaboration occurred in Chapter 3 Season 1 with Fortnite x Spider-Man: No Way Home.
That same season featured Spider-Man as the Battle Pass’ main character. Epic Games and Marvel have also worked together an entire superhero season in the past.
There’s no end in sight to this partnership. It’s an exciting time for Fortnite and Marvel fans as the two continue producing top-notch content.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 could arrive as early as this Sunday based on what we know. Be sure to check back with ESTNN for more updates. Feel free to refer to our recent articles covering the season. Also, check out our Chapter 3 Season 2 wish list of what we hope to see in the new season.
