Fortnite’s live event for Season 4 was supposed to be the end of the massive Marvel season, but it looks like Epic might not be done with Marvel quite yet for Fortnite Season 5…
When players sent Galactus back to where he came from, supposedly saving the Fortnite world, we’ve been brought to another “Black Hole” style server downtime. Luckily, it’s only about 8 hours long compared to the 24 hour downtime of the black hole. Since the season has finished, the official Fortnite Twitter page has released a couple of audio teasers for what’s to come in the next season!
For readers that may not be able to listen to the recording I’ve transcribed it for you: “Reality log 1987…why is every jungle in every reality crawling with venomous snakes and strange predators? Ahh, whatever it’ll all be worth it when I find Maeve. Locals around here call her Wildheart. that’s uhh shapeshifter to you and me. rumor has it the gods have granted her 3 forms. shark, harpy, and uhhh oh well actually no one’s lived long enough to see the third one. This…will be fun.”
Doing a bit of research I’ve found that there’s potentially even more Marvel content coming with next season, though perhaps not just Marvel. Fortnite has started the two hashtags #Bounty and #Wildheart with these teaser Tweets, recently there have been rumors of a Mandalorian/Star Wars season coming next after Marvel, and the #Bounty seems to point in that direction as well, #Wildheart could be referring to Marvel character Wild Child.
Wild Child, also known as Wild Heart, is another anti-hero serving as both a hero and villain at times. I think if we’re getting more Marvel content in Fortnite Season 5, this could definitely be a possibility considering he was essentially name-dropped in the teaser!
The transmission stated that Maeve has 3 forms: Shark, Harpy, and currently the third is unknown. What leads me to believe there may be more Marvel content is the Marvel character Wild Child.
Theresa Maeve Rourke Cassidy, otherwise known as Siryn, is a marvel superhero who also goes by the name Banshee. My guess is that this may be the third form? She was also introduced to X-Force in 1987, which also has skins in the game, coincidentally the audio log is Reality Log 1987. Maybe it’s a bit of a reach, but who knows?
I also think it might be safe to say that we’re going to get a Predator skin at some point, since the audio log states “why is every jungle in every reality crawling with venomous snakes and strange predators.” Considering the 1987 movie Predator takes place in the jungle, I feel like the wording in this audio log points to a Predator skin at some point in Fortnite Season 5.
So far, that’s all I’ve been able to dissect from this audio log, I’ll continue to update it if and when more teasers are released, but until then I’ll be staring at this blank screen waiting for Fortnite Season 5 to start!
“Reality log 42 the next recruit goes by Condor. I finally got him to stop standing in the rain monologue monologuing about cherry blossoms or whatever that was. According to local legend, he’s a vengeful spirit given to the Emperor’s family centuries ago and passed down since. they say he’ll grant any wish for revenge no matter how dark or terrible. so let’s all be very careful what we wish for.”
From the sound of it, we might be getting a Condor skin? Condor is another Marvel superhero introduced in 1976, but he doesn’t have anything to do with a vengeful spirit or an Emperor so I’m not too sure…I would say Ghost Rider, but we already have a Ghost Rider skin, so this one seems pretty obscure.
“Reality log 312 I got myself front row seats to see this guy in action. Now that is a warrior. He’s got the intensity, the muscles, the willingness to do that oh that’s gross…oh no no no look at these poor dummies coming for–turn back! This is not gonna go the way you think….this guy might be a challenge to bring in”
I’m thinking maybe this might be Kraven the Hunter or Sabertooth? Maybe Drax from Guardians of the Galaxy? Not really sure with this one…
