Reports of a recent Fortnite leak seem to indicate that the largest crossover since The Avengers event is happening.

Six images featuring Batman’s wings, cape, gun, and Batarang, along with a Gotham City map and a Batman loading screen surfaced on the Fortnite Battle Royale subreddit on Wednesday. Many think that Batgirl and the Joker will also be part of the event after seeing two male and one female encrypted skins.

The leak comes several days before the next update on Sept. 21, which is also Batman Day.

Redditor u/SuperDude4368 wrote, “All new Leaks found within the latest update,” along with the images.


A Twitter account dedicated to all things Fortnite news also seemingly confirmed the crossover.

Epic Games, the creators of Fortnite, gave fans many other surprise crossover events this year, including John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum, Nike’s Jordan brand, Borderlands 3Stranger Things, and most notably Avengers: Endgame. 

DC Comics announced that cities around the world are shining the Batman symbol to celebrate Batman Day. 2019 marks Batman’s 80th anniversary, and some fans may just be celebrating by playing Fortnite.

The Daily Dot has reached out to Epic Games and DC Universe for confirmation.
