Black Panther is rumored to be coming to Fortnite and these are three characters we want to see.
Black Panther 2 is set to hit theaters later this year and it’s very likely that a crossover with Fortnite will happen. After all, a Marvel crossover with Fortnite is as likely as death and taxes. So of course we’re planning ahead. Yet, the untimely passing of Chadwick Boseman has put a somber cloud over the release of the film.
Leticia Wright’s Shuri will take over the role of Black Panther, as her in-universe brother T’Challa (played by Boseman) will be killed off since the movie’s producers didn’t want to recast such a beloved actor.
Just because Boseman is gone, doesn’t mean any crossover with Black Panther 2 can’t include him, after all, it would be a fitting tribute to include a brand new Black Panther costume into any crossover.
So what three characters would we like to see in a Black Panther 2 and Fortnite crossover? Good question, let’s discuss.
Three Black Panther 2 characters we want in Fortnite
Black Panther T’Challa
A tribute costume, celebrating T’Challa and Chadwick Boseman would be a nice gesture to his fans. The actor passed far too young and the mark he left on the industry in such a short time won’t soon be forgotten.
Black Panther Shuri
Shuri is the new featured star of the franchise, and her involvement in any crossover is necessary. The game can’t celebrate the release of Black Panther 2 without also including the new lead of the franchise. That would just be wrong.
Namor the Sub Mariner
Fans aren’t loving Namor the Sub Mariner after he got a dramatic retooling for the film, but as the film’s main villain, he has the chance to turn those frowns upside down with a stellar performance and an incredible storyline. HIs involvement with any promotional event is almost as necessary as Shuri’s.
