Another Marvel superhero is going to arrive in Fortnite, and this time, it’s Ant-Man. The developers announced that Ant-Man will be coming in the Fortnite’s Item Shop alongside the Toothpick Pickaxe and Back Bling Ant-Tonio, which is Ant-Man’s trusty steed. To avail Ant-Man’s new costume and items, make sure to run Fortnite’s latest update on your gaming pc or console.
The Fortnite Team initially teased Fortnite by sharing three different images of small Ant-Man on other marvel characters in their official Twitter account. The teases were actually quite hilarious as the banners included other Marvel characters such as Cable, Blade, and Captain America — and you have to look for Ant-Man in his minuscule form.
Ant-Man is the latest Marvel superhero to be featured in Fortnite. This will be the latest pop culture crossover after the Alien-crossover with Ripley, and the Xenomorph costume skin was introduced.
Ant-Man’s addition to the game is a treat for Ant-Man fans as they have to wait until 2022 to see the new movie in the franchise titled Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Actors Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michelle Pfeiffer, Michael Pena, and Michael Douglass will return for the third Ant-Man film. It will also be directed again by Peyton Reed. And according to news, Lovecraft Country star Jonathan Majors will be joining the cast. According to some sources, Majors will play the leading villain role in the third film, which will be Kang the Conqueror.
Aside from Ant-Man, it was also announced previously that Batman will be returning to Fortnite. Players will be able to gain new costumes and limited items by purchasing a new comic series called Zero Point. It is a limited Batman/Fortnite Crossover six-issue series by Christos Gage. Zero Point will bring Batman and other DC icons such as Harley Quinn and Catwoman into the Fortnite Universe. In this story, Batman struggles to remember who he is and where he came from as he tries to learn the mystery of the Zero Point. This series will be in-canon with the Fortnite universe and will also add new layers to the game’s story.
