Season 4 of Fortnite Battle Royale is inching closer by the day. As we are preparing to bid adieu to Season 3, we are left to wonder whether there will be a live event. It seems unlikely right now because Epic Games hasn’t announced it yet. Nevertheless, there are some rumors and predictions doing the rounds regarding Season 4. So what can we expect from the upcoming season?
Epic Games collaborates with cinematic franchises like Marvel and DC all the time. Just this season, Fortnite joined hands with DC and introduced Aquaman in the game. And now, from the looks of it, Marvel will play a huge part in the new season.
Such collaborations often shape the theme and tone for the entirety of the season. However, fans have been waiting to know more about Fortnite lore. We haven’t seen Midas or Jules since the Doomsday event and that storyline seems incomplete still.
Fortnite to collaborate with Marvel in Season 4?
Looking at all the clues, leaks, and rumors regarding Season 4, it is likely we will see Fortnite collaborate with Marvel. Reliable Fortnite data miner Hypex recently tweeted about the upcoming season, citing a source this time around. The data miner said Season 4 ‘might’ feature a Marvel theme. However, he admitted that Epic may change its mind.
Moreover, most clues dropped by Epic point towards Thor and Galactus entering the foray in the new season. It’ll be interesting to see if Thor arrives with Mjolnir or the Stormbreaker.
I've seen some of you guess this already, but yeah Season 4 *MIGHT* be Marvel themed, and Thor & his hammer are gonna be cosmetics (this is via my source)
Also the trailer might start with a girl cornered in some alleyway by armed skins and she gets saved.

What is going to happen to the actual plot?
While the various collaborations drive the season in a definitive direction, some feel it deviates the game from the main plot.

Following the Doomsday event, Jules took charge of things. We saw Midas get swallowed by a shark in a short clip, but it remains to be seen if that was the end of him. As you can imagine, questions regarding this overarching storyline are rife in the community. How are Jules and Midas related? What happened to Jon Jones? Is the simulation still a thing?
The Jules storyline was a pivotal shift and to see it taper in such a manner would disappoint us all. Hopefully, we will see more of it in the following weeks.
