Black Adam is coming to Fortnite. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson confirmed the news today ahead of the October 21 movie release date.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is back in Fortnite Battle Royale for the second time. This time, Johnson will appear in Fortnite as DC Comics’ Black Adam. The news arrived today via a viral Twitter clip showcasing a few different looks at the new Black Adam outfit. Furthermore, this collaboration comes only ten days before Johnson stars in the upcoming film.
Here’s everything we know about the latest crossover based on the tweets that we have seen today.
Black Adam joins Fortnite as a playable character
The bond remains strong between the former WWE superstar turned high-profile actor. In February, Dwayne Johnson made his Fortnite debut as The Foundation–an integral character in the game’s overarching plot. Considering Epic Games’ partnership with DC Comics, it should be no surprise that Johnson’s rendition of Black Adam is due to arrive in Fortnite Battle Royale.
The iconic antihero character joins the likes of Batman, Harley Quinn, Catwoman, Joker, Aquaman, and more in the growing list of DC heroes and villains in Fortnite. Based on the brief trailer above, Black Adam has two different Fortnite styles; a hooded and a non-hooded variant. These styles are prevalent in the various Black Adam movie trailers we’ve seen thus far.
Based on an image released by Fortnite's Twitter account, the bundle features an emote, pickaxe, and back bling. We can expect to learn more soon.
How to watch the worldwide reveal
The official reveal will happen tomorrow, October 12, at 6:30 PM EST. It’s unclear which channel, but we presume Fortnite’s Twitch channel will host the worldwide reveal of the Fortnite X Black Adam outfit.
