But that’s not what most of the fans are thinking, however, regarding this rumor.

Fortnite fans not sure of a Thor collaboration as the rumor is not convincing enough

Reputed scooper Shiina recently posted a tweet on their account. They tried to speculate that it may be related to an upcoming collaboration featuring MCU’s latest Thor installment.

This speculation comes from an Instagram post that Epic Games’ COO Donald Mustard shared. That post had an image depicting fireworks in the sky with orange, red, and blue colors. If you compare it with the posters of Thor Love and Thunder revealed so far, then the movie has also emphasized a lot on these color patterns.

Now what Shiina thinks is that Epic Games’ COO may have just teased a new crossover in Fortnite, possibly based on the Thor film.

“This might be the biggest stretch ever, but *EVERYTHING* Donald posts is a teaser, and the timing fits VERY good,” the scooper wrote.

Meanwhile, fans don’t think so at all. In fact, some of them believe that the scooper might be overstretching their theory. That’s because the color scheme cannot be exclusively attached to just Thor Love and Thunder. It may be the case that it might be related to something else as well.

On the other hand, some Fortnite lovers are just excited and believe that this rumor is indeed true. The reason for that being the game’s past collaborations with Marvel, especially this year.
