New Marvel Character Coming To Fortnite

In a tweet, Epic Games revealed that the missing Marvel character would be coming to the game saying,

"Over the seasons, many Marvel Heroes and Villains have made their way to the Island. But it looks like we may have forgotten one. Any guesses who it might be?"

Eagled eyed readers may be able to spot the hint that has been given in this picture.

But for those that can't, here is a close-up.


The new Marvel character that is coming to the game is none other than Ant-Man.

NEW: Ant-Man will be coming to the game soon.

Ant-Man joins an ever-growing cast of Marvel characters in Fortnite which includes Iron-Man, Black Panther, Thor, Wolverine, Black Widow, Daredevil, Blade and many others.

Who Is Ant-Man?

"Scott Edward Harris Lang is a former convicted thief who was struggling to pay child support to his estranged wife for visitation rights to his daughter, Cassie Lang. With the promise of money, he was convinced by Hank Pym to take on the mantle of Ant-Man: a superhero with an advanced suit designed to shrink its wearer to a tiny size while increasing one's toughness, agility, and physical strength.

Release Date

It is likely that we will see Ant-Man added to the game over the next day or two.

Lazarbeam recently received his own Icon Series skin, so they will likely give that skin some breathing room and keep the focus on that skin before rotating Ant-Man into the Item Shop.

The skin will likely be added to the game at some point between today and Monday.
