Fortnite is seemingly about to add two more massive skins with Morty and actor Will Smith. The two skins leaked online from reputable sources with both pictures and videos, giving them a lot of credibility. That said, there’s still a chance these are fake and there’s no clear indication when the skins could release in Fortnite, so it’s worth taking with a grain of salt right now.
Fortnite recently added Wonder Woman to the game, rounding out DC’s trinity of heroes within Fortnite. Wonder Woman is just one of many iconic characters that have joined the game over the last several years. Somehow, Epic Games has created a unique universe within the shooter, allowing competing IPs to crossover with each other. Marvel, DC, Xbox, and PlayStation characters all populate the incredibly successful battle royale and now, that world is seemingly about to grow even bigger.
According to Fortnite insider HYPEX, Morty from Rick & Morty and Will Smith (seemingly in his outfit from Bad Boys) are coming to the game. There aren’t any obvious reasons why Will Smith would be joining the game as it’s not a milestone year for the Bad Boys franchise and he doesn’t have any massive projects on the immediate horizon. That said, a Rick & Morty Fortnite crossover has been brewing for a while, with Rick already in the game, and it only makes sense that Morty would be added to the game now.
Fortnite is continuing to pad out its impressive roster of characters and as the game continues to grow in popularity, the cultural significance will likely grow as well. There are still tons of characters that have yet to be added to Fortnite and given the rate at which Epic Games has been churning these skins out, it seems unlikely they’ll be slowing down anytime soon.
Epic Games has yet to confirm the authenticity of these skins, but it seems likely that they’ll be coming sooner rather than later if players are discovering them now. Given the likes of Wonder Woman, Superman, and Gamora have all joined Fortnite in the last week, it seems possible these skins could drop later in the month if they are authentic. It remains to be seen if they’ll have any significant events tied to them or if they’ll just be added into the in-game store. Either way, it’s clear Fortnite is attracting some serious star power now.
