A source may have just revealed that a Will Smith skin could be on its way to Fortnite.
Developed by Epic Games, Fortnite is an online video game that was released in 2017 with three distinct game mode versions. It is a fast-paced action game of survival where players fight against one another in order to be the last one standing.
Serving as a collaboration powerhouse, Fortnite’s battle royale may soon add character, Mike Lowrey, portrayed by renowned actor Will Smith from the iconic “Bad Boys” trilogy. Per Nintendo Life, the character will allegedly feature the “I Am Legend” actor.
The Will Smith skin in question may be from the original 1995 “Bad Boys” film but is also said to come in other variants – not just his Mike Lowrey character. Fans allegedly may also see his Agent J variant from the hit film “Men In Black” as a skin on the gaming platform.
“Because the Will Smith skin hasn’t been made official just yet, there’s no knowing when it will release,” said an official statement in Dual Shockers. “However, as it was uncovered with the v17.40 update files, it’s possible that Epic plans to release it pretty soon.”
Hypex is the Fortnite news source that is known for revealing skins for the game ahead of its intended release. The site also shares that because this is a data mined skin, it could be released by Fortnite within weeks.

Will Smith’s skin will join the ranks of other superstars with skins like singer Ariana Grande. Other high-profile additions that are reportedly on the way to the Fortnite game include Chris Hemsworth based on his character, Tyler Rake, from the Netflix film, “Extraction.”
Users may also be in for a huge treat with a new Morty skin from the hit television series, “Rick & Morty,” along with a “Janky” skin and a “Ninja Wolf” skin.
Details on the exact date that the new skins will hit the gaming platform have yet to be released.
