Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 brings plenty of Marvel superheroes and villains into the battle royale, and it looks as though it'll all be capped off by the arrival of Galactus.

Fresh off a middling Tom Hardy movie, and with the character expected to form a big part of Sony's Spiderverse series of movies, could Venom be arriving?

The sometimes anti-hero, sometimes villain is a favourite with comic book fans, offering a darker character who is driven by a chequered sense of morality and a cool moveset that often riffs on Spider-Man's iconic powers.

Here's all we know about Eddie Brock's arrival in Fortnite.

Venom Release Date

Fans have been calling out for a Venom skin since the series began, and we'd be very surprised if Epic didn't include it.

In fact, a leak from longtime Fortnite dataminer @iFireMonkey pointed out a new "Tooltip" image that includes everyone's favourite symbiote.

IT'S GOOD TO BE BAD: Fortnite comic confirms Venom's inclusion

Back Bling

With the symbiote being so fluid, we wonder if Venom's back bling could be some kind of manifestation of the alien that changes shape throughout the course of a map.

Glider

Again, the symbiote makes perfect sense as a glider, as Venom can almost "stretch" it out into an almost parachute-like shape.

Venom has also sported wings when in contact with Knull, too!

Harvest Tool

For this one, Epic can go as crazy as they want.

While Venom isn't able to turn his limbs into weapons in the same way Carnage (another symbiote) can, there's no denying his flexibility.

Could we see him tear trees and buildings apart with an outstretched, almost tentacle-like attack?

Punch Card Challenges

Here's hoping we can play through some cool challenges with Venom, like hopping across rooftops and consuming enemies.

Maybe it'll be tied into the emergence of Carnage one day, too?

Abilities

Venom has enhanced strength and durability, as well as being significantly larger than Eddie Brock on his own. 

He's also immune to Spider-Sense and can create webs due to the symbiote previously bonding with Peter Parker.

Finally, Venom is vulnerable to both fire and loud sounds!
