The exciting new Batman event for Fortnite Battle Royale went live this weekend, with new skins, items and even Gotham City itself, but one thing is sorely missing – a Joker skin.

There is a Batman skin (two, in fact, with different styles for each) and a Catwoman skin, but there is no villian for the pair to go up against, at least not yet.

The event itself was launched for ‘Batman Day’ on September 21, and coincided with Epic Games giving away six games Batman games for free on the store.

However, there is more to this crossover potentially on the way, and all points sign to the Joker himself making an appearance.

The most obvious clue is that one of the new ‘Welcome to Gotham City’ Challenges involves finding and defusing three Joker Gas Canisters around the map, so we already know he’s part of the lore to an extent.

You need to defuse 3 Joker Gas Canisters to complete the challenge.

So, we know that the Joker is up to something in Fortnite, but there’s no skin yet, meaning you can currently only suit up as the heroes.

But, the Joker movie is set to release on October 4, which is two days before the Batman event will end in Fortnite, and we wouldn’t be surprised if Epic takes this opportunity to add in a skin.

Warner Bros.

Of course, it wouldn’t be the first time that they have teamed up with new movie releases, starting with Marvel’s Avengers, Ralph breaks the Internet, John Wick, and most recently, IT: Chapter 2.

There’s no confirmation of a Joker skin, but all the right signs are there, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
