Fortnite: next DC comics skin is Flash says dataminer

Epic Games is apparently adding the Flash as its next DC skin, with a dataminer claiming it’s a reward for another Fortnite Cup.

Fortnite’s Marvel themed Season 4 almost made it easy to forget that the game’s also a stomping ground for some of DC’s most famous comic book characters.

The likes of Batman, Harley Quinn, Aquaman, and Green Arrow have already been included and now it’s believed that DC’s scarlet speedster The Flash is the next skin to be added.

It hasn’t been confirmed by Epic Games yet but, earlier today, regular dataminer and leaker HYPEX shared an image of what looks like an official promotional image of the Flash in the Fortnite art style, claiming that a Flash Cup will take place on February 10.

As for why Flash is being added now, there’s always a chance Epic Games is doing some kind of cross-promotion with the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League, but the skin doesn’t resemble Flash’s costume from that film.

Plus, you’d think Epic would pick Superman or Wonder Woman to represent it since they have yet to appear in Fortnite and are considerably better known. Wonder Woman even got another solo movie recently so it’s a tad surprising she wasn’t picked. Or maybe it’s just because the Flash show was recently renewed for an eighth season.

In the past, Epic has held special cups for players to unlock new skins early should they perform well enough, like it did with Daredevil, but you can be sure that the Flash will be added for everyone shortly afterwards.

He’ll probably be added as a simple download from the in-game store, rather than be added to the current Battle Pass, since he doesn’t exactly match up with the whole hunter theme the game’s been running with as of late.

Fortnite is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
