Will there be a Fortnite Spider-Man skin? There have been previous Fortnite x Marvel collaborations, but the current Fortnite Nexus War takes things to another level. So, should we expect to see a Fortnite Spider-Man skin released during Fortnite Season 4 Chapter 2? Here are the final details.
Fortnite Spider-Man Skin | Will Spidey be added to the game?
At the time of writing, there has been no official confirmation that a Fortnite Spider-Man skin is coming out. Despite this, an in-game hint has led to speculation that a Spider-Man Fortnite skin may be added to the Item Shop soon.
Reliable leaker HYPEX spotted a Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 Spider-Man objective after the most recent update. Noting that one of the new lenses features a “Spiderman logo,” the data miner went on to speculate that “we might see [Spider-Man] in the Item Shop later this season. "
There is a Season 4 result with the Spiderman logo, could we see it in the Item Shop later this season?

This is not concrete proof that we will have a Fortnite Spider-Man skin in the near future, of course. However, adding Spidey as a paid DLC would make a lot of sense. You can unlock tons of Fortnite Marvel skins in Chapter 4's Season 2 Battle Superpass * battle, but Marvel's greatest hero is definitely absent.
Making the wall crawler look like a standalone purchase would make its presentation an event in itself. It would certainly be more profitable for both Epic Games and Marvel. When you also consider that Spider-Man is expanding to make an appearance in Marvel's Avengers (as a PlayStation-exclusive character) - a game that Fortnite has a collaborative history with - the odds appear to be increasing.
Whether a potential Fortnite Spider-Man skin would be PlayStation exclusive remains to be seen. That's not a guarantee, however, with Spidey appearing in 3's Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2019 on the Nintendo Switch.
