‘Fortnite’ Could Follow Its Marvel Season With A DC Season – Forbes

Fortnite has done the unthinkable and launched a fully licensed Marvel-themed season with eight battle pass skins and one already hitting the store on its own, Silver Surfer, now in the shop.

It stands to reason that it’s going to release a bunch more by the time the season is over, and the “plot” of this season are the Marvel heroes and Fortnite characters banding together to take on Galactus and prevent him from eating the island or whatever he’s trying to do.

All this Marvel talk has me thinking about what comes next, and whether Fortnite is going to go full Metaverse and solicit Marvel’s biggest rival, DC, for a themed season next, possibly even blending the two.

Both Marvel and DC have been competing for Fortnite appearances for over a year now. While Marvel is now in the lead thanks to this season, DC has had plenty of its own appearances in the past. Hell, Gotham City itself was even briefly a POI on the map.

What would a DC season look like? One issue is that the game has already gotten a fair amount of “heavy hitters” in the game, which leaves me wondering who would make a battle pass or store skins.

So far we have:

  • Batman
  • Catwoman
  • Harley Quinn
  • Aquaman

All are in the game, and the Joker and Poison Ivy have been revealed to be part of a bundle being sold this November in time for the holiday season.

So, what would a DC season’s battle pass look like? The biggest names I can think of on DC’s side to fill that would be:

  • Superman
  • Wonder Woman
  • The Flash
  • Green Lantern
  • Supergirl
  • Green Arrow
  • Martian Manhunter
  • Secret Skin: I don’t know, let’s say Nightwing.

In terms of a grand threat like Galactus, Darkseid is the obvious choice, and I can already imagine us fighting his flying minions on the map.

Past these, other potentially popular skins that could be in the battle pass or store:

  • Robin
  • Batgirl
  • Riddler
  • Bane
  • Scarecrow
  • Raven
  • Starfire
  • Shazam
  • Lex Luthor
  • Black Canary
  • Cyborg
  • Sinestro
  • Deathstroke
  • Red Hood

And depending on how loose DC is feeling with the Watchmen license it has:

  • Doctor Manhattan
  • Rorschach
  • Nite Owl
  • Silk Spectre
  • The Comedian

I mean I could keep going forever. I would say the fact that this Joker bundle is coming in November implies to me that perhaps Fortnite may be thinking about launching a DC season around that time, as it’s about when this current Marvel season would be ending. But we’ve seen no indicators that’s happening other than the simple fact that DC clearly wants to keep this collaboration going.

I think it would be cool and there’s obviously infinite potential for skins here that will no doubt bankrupt me if they make their way to the game. I see zero reason for DC not to agree to be featured in a season, and obviously Fortnite would love to make that happen to. So yeah, maybe. But perhaps not right away.
