Someone, please have coffee at Idris Elba. The Suicide Squad star, who plays Bloodsport as the elite assassin in the reboot of James Gunn's superhero, is picking up some Fortnite promotions among all the other work, and it's a bit of fun as : A) has no idea what Fortnite is or B) agreed to do so. promotion ten seconds earlier when his agent meekly interrupted his questions.
Either way, according to a new tweet from director James Gunn, we’ll get a Suicide Squad x Fortnite crossover. We’re definitely getting a Bloodsport skin and it is possible that other Suicide Squad skins will be available before the film’s release next month.
Watch the trailer for Gunn’s tweet below.
Oh, yes. #Fortnite fans are gearing up for questions. @FortniteGame @idriselba pic.twitter.com/rlNQP0tk1lJuly 28, 2021
Bloodsport looks appropriately menacing, like a football player with a xenomorph face. It’s basically the same look Elba will have in the film, when she won’t unmask herself to show off this pretty cup criminally, painfully and unjustifiably.
This is also just speculation, but it looks like the image of Elba's Twitter banner is her face done in a strong style. Given that the only game in which it has appeared is NBA 2K20 race mode, this could be a skin-independent aspect of Bloodsport Fortnite. Someone tells me I'm wrong, though!
Anyway, the teaser trailer says we'll know more tomorrow AKA Thursday 29.
Given Fortnite's already extensive relationship with DC, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw one fourth Harley Quinn skin. John Cena's peacemaker, a "Captain America," Colonel Rick Flagg, or my personal favorite, King Shark. I just hope it’s the HBO version of the Harley Quinn series, with the voice of Ron Funches.

God help us if they give us one Weasel skin.
