The Epic Games title Fortnite has become a juggernaut in the gaming world, and the event coincides with the release of Avengers: Endgame, which was expected to be the end of Marvel’s Phase 3, though it has since been revealed that Spider-Man: Far From Home is the actual end of the phase. Stormbreaker will be a part of the event which begins on April 25, 2019.
In Avengers: Infinity War, Thor created Stormbreaker because his sister destroyed his old weapon Mjolnir in Thor: Ragnarok. According to Variety, the weapon is likely going to be a skin for the game’s pickaxe. Yesterday we learned that Captain America’s shield is also appearing in the event. There was a crossover event for last year’s Avengers: Infinity War in the game as well.
In Marvel Studios‘ Avengers: Infinity War, members from every MCU franchise sacrificed like never before in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin could put an end to the universe. The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to 22 films, Avengers: Endgame.
The film stars Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/The Hulk, Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Don Cheadle as Colonel James Rhodes/War Machine, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Paul Bettany as Vision, Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Peter Dinklage as Eitri, Benedict Wong as Wong, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Dave Bautista as Drax, featuring Vin Diesel as Groot, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, with Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, with Benicio Del Toro as The Collector, with Josh Brolin as Thanos, and Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord.
