Epic Games is teasing Rick and Morty content for Fortnite alongside something that seems to indicate Superman is coming to the game as well.
Both the Rick and Morty tease and the Superman tease come by way of Twitter where the official Fortnite account tweeted videos featuring things from both respective universes. For the Rick and Morty tease, the Butter Robot from Season 1 is shown floating in an alien-like beam.

As you can see, Butter Robot failed every test but the "transporting bone modification liquid" test, presumably because this robot, which was created by Rick Sanchez, can literally do nothing but pass butter.
A second tease made today points to something, or rather someone, significantly more powerful than the Butter Robot. In a video similar to the Butter Robot one, a pair of glasses are shown floating in a beam. The glasses alone aren't enough to point toward Superman, but the caption paired with it seems to hint at the fan-favorite Kryptonian.
Catalog Entry #407-740
When placed onto the face this strange plastic device seemed to make us appear as unrecognizable.
More testing required.

As you can see above, the caption seems to make light of the fact that Superman can hide his identity by wearing just a pair of glasses, as seen in countless comics, TV shows, and movies.
It's unclear what these two videos are teasing exactly, however. Maybe Butter Robot is coming to Fortnite, but that'd be an odd inclusion when fans of the game, and Rick and Morty, would probably prefer to see the titular characters added to the battle royale.
As for Superman, a Clark Kent skin would be cool, but fans are probably hoping to see a skin based on the actual Man of Steel. His fellow Justice League members like Batman have made it to the game, after all. Both of these teases could be hinting at simple collaborations that bring skins into the game, or they could be hinting at what's to come in the upcoming season.

While waiting to find out what these teases mean, read about how Epic Games is hinting at an alien invasion for Season 7 of Fortnite Chapter 2 and then watch this trailer for the new Fortnite June Crew Pack. Read about how the game is getting a graphics upgrade when the new season begins after that.
