Epic Leaks Scarlet Witch ‘Fortnite’ Skin Early

Fortnite is always poured over by dataminers with each new patch, but this time it was Epic who leaked an upcoming skin. They seem to have accidentally put the forthcoming Scarlet Witch skin in their official Creative Item Documents, which you can see above and below.

It’s only the rear view of the skin, which has Wanda Maximoff in her Scarlet Witch costume that she got at the end of Wandavision, and will wear in the upcoming Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness this weekend. The film has just premiered and Elizabeth Olsen’s performance as Wanda is getting a special amount of praise.

Given that we can only see the back of the skin, is this going to be modeled after Elizabeth Olsen once she turns around? No, it almost certainly won’t, as that’s not how Epic does the vast majority of its superhero skins. We already have a Doctor Strange skin, which was definitely not modeled after actor Benedict Cumberbatch, so I would not expect Wanda to be Elizabeth Olson.

Sometimes superheroes do look like the actors that play them. We got a Tom Holland Spider-Man with Zendaya Mary-Jane that both resemble the actors, but generally speaking, that’s not the case (plus, most superheroes wear masks, so this doesn’t come up too often). But there’s no Tom Hiddleston Loki, no Scarlet Johansson Black Widow.

The fact that Fortnite made a Scarlet Witch skin is no great surprise, as at this point it’s almost expected that any major superhero project is going to have an accompanying Fortnite skin with it. Doctor Strange leading the battle pass has more or less been a Multiverse of Madness ad this whole time, and I figured Scarlet Witch would arrive once we got closer to the movie’s release itself. We also got a pair of Moon Knight skins this past week ahead of the show’s finale, and new leaks suggest we’re about to get an Obi-Wan skin ahead of the premiere of that series on Disney Plus. Fortnite is marketing arm for all these series at this point.

And of course, it works! Without question, Scarlet Witch is going to be a character I want to add to my already growing superhero roster in Fortnite, which is a few dozen Marvel and DC heroes at this point. I barely play the game anymore, but hey I need options to wear to the next Fortnite Billie Eilish concert or whatever it ends up being.

I’d expect Wanda to arrive in the store in the next few days here, probably Thursday or Friday. Stay tuned.
