Epic Games' investment in Fortnite's budding metaverse has paid off handsomely.

Over the years, Fortnite has amassed an enviable roster of playable skins based on popular franchises and figures.

Now, there are rumors that John Cena's Peacemaker is coming next.

The latest DCEU film to drop, James Gunn's The Suicide Squad, performed below expectations at the box office.

However, fans were more than happy to watch a ton of little-known DC anti-heroes finally make their cinematic debut.

Among those was Peacemaker, who was portrayed by John Cena. 

The patriotic peace-loving psychopath was an instant hint among casual audiences and hardcore fans alike.

With fellow Task Force X members Harley Quinn and Bloodsport already in Fortnite, Peacemaker's inclusion makes a lot of sense.

Epic apparently intends to tie the Peacemaker Fortnite skin with the upcoming Peacemaker TV show, which is set to release in January 2022.

At this point, anything and everything can happen in Fortnite.

Epic's even been rumored to be adding Naruto to Fortnite sometime in the future.

For Epic to collaborate with Warner Bros for another Fortnite skin that will tie into an upcoming HBO Max show doesn't come off as a surprise anymore.
