Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 is already jam-packed with Marvel skins for our favourite heroes.

But a few of our most requested characters are still missing from the roster.

Though perhaps for one of them that is all about to change, is Captain Marvel going to make an appearance?

This cosmic-powered superhero could be exactly who the Avengers need to defeat Galactus!

Captain Marvel Leaks

If you don’t remember Nexus War is the name given to the Marvel-Fortnite crossover event.

With her appearing so often it seems almost impossible that she won’t make a full appearance soon.

Then there are a few leaks.

Firstly there’s the SHIELD Helicarrier POI which will soon make an appearance in Fortnite.

Whilst we don’t know if a Boss will spawn there yet Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel, has plenty of ties to SHIELD so would certainly fit.

We also have more recent evidence in terms of a new fire effect.

Over at Twitter user SizzyLeaks and AthenaBigBoi discovered some interesting particle effects for a fireball with codename ‘Cherry’.

Cherry doesn’t have a particular attachment to Captain Marvel, beyond sharing C as a first letter, but the hero's cosmic powers certainly look like fire.

The almost-otherworldly glow which can be seen in the image also seems to back that up. 

Though fire is also attached to other heroes, like Human Torch Johnny Storm. 

Galactus and Doctor Doom are both famous Fantastic Four villains, so having one of the heroes show up is a possibility!

Captain Marvel Powers

If Captain Marvel is added, she will likely have a fireball move similar to Doctor Doom’s Mystical Bomb, based on these effects.

It’s also possible she could wield some kind of laser power, similar to how her powers manifest in the sonics and films.

We’ll just have to wait to find out more.

Release date

There is no date confirmed yet, but we will update this as we learn more!


Based on her design on the Nexus Wars covers, Captain Marvel will likely don a suit and hairstyle MCU fans will recognise from the films.

Her iconic blue, red and yellow bodysuit, potentially with both shorter and longer hair or a mask as variants.

We could also see her classic black and lightning bolt adorned costume, but given the association with the new Ms. Marvel, we likely won’t.

Back Bling

This is certainly a tough one to predict.

Some ideas include her caring a pack with her cat Goose in it like previous pets.

We could also see her iconic logo appear as a fiery hologram like the Star Wars skins.

Other than that, we’re not too sure.

Captain Marvel is not known for capes, so that easy guess is out the window.


Captain Marvel may not carry a weapon, but her firey cosmic powers would really suit an energy pickaxe like Psylocke and Storm wield.

So it’s likely Captain Marvel will use something similar.

We’ll update this page to let you know more as new information comes out!
