Black Panther leaks suggest Chadwick Boseman will be immortalized in Fortnite history

Chadwick Boseman, who played T’Challa of Wakanda in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, tragically passed away on Thursday. Leaks suggest his character is slated to be introduced as a mythical “hero”

This one feels surreal to write – which is part of the reason why I put off reporting on this for a few days. Boseman’s contribution to the MCU as the star lead in Black Panther was nothing short of a class act… and since I assume most of you guys out there are also highly involved in the modern digital culture, we’re all struggling with this loss together

But some very odd coincidence occurred just a few nights ago. Leakers were able to confirm via game files that Black Panther is slated to make an appearance on the Fortnite map “soon” – anytime between now and the end of the season

We can confirm that the plan to introduce Black Panther to Fortnite occured before the passing of Boseman. Regardless, our community will be able to make our imprint and put his legacy in the Fortnite history books

Additional leaked information

New point of interest

HypeX reported “PantherMountain” would be constructed to the left of Craggy Cliffs in the top right corner of the map

Mythic item sounds

Panther Mountain will have two mythic item spawns. “Kinetic Absorption” will absorb damage and will subsequently explode similar to the movie. “Whirlwind Blast” is also an ability inspired by the Black Panther’s power ups

In light of recent events, it is uncertain as to whether Fortnite will pull the plug on introducing this hero so close to the actor’s passing. While there might be some pushback, I hope that Fortnite continues with their original plan to put Black Panther in the game

With the unique opportunity to collaborate with the MCU in such an impactful way, this is the best opportunity we will get to permanently remember a fallen warrior. Maybe Fortnite can even spread more positivity by selling a Black Panther skin and raising proceeds for colon cancer charity? Boseman’s 4 year battle with the disease should not go unheard

During the Avengers: Endgame crossover, a talented community member suggested a Black Panther skin be introduced in the game. It’s a stellar idea, especially considering the current circumstances

While this one wasn’t easy for me, I’ll be satisfied if you can remember one thing from this post:

Legends never die – RIP Chadwick Boseman 1976 – 2020
