When you compare this to the fact that Aquaman's appearance was based on the DCEU's Aquaman and Justice League films, it makes for an interesting decision.

Flash Cup Starting

Prior to The Flash joining Fortnite's Item Shop, Epic Games are adding a new limited-time Duos cup to the game!

Not only is this a great chance for players to showcase their skills, but Epic Games are also giving the top-performing Duos in each region The Flash Outfit and the Speed Force Back Bling for free.
