Fortnite leaks point to Ant-Man being the next hunter in Fortnite

Fortnite, Ant-Man

Fortnite leaks suggest that the next hunter coming to Fortnite is none other than Marvel’s Ant-Man.


A new set of Fortnite leaks have started appearing, suggesting that the Marvel superhero Ant-Man is coming to the game. In the current season, there’s been a large portal called Zero Point located on the Battle Royale island. To keep it under control, Fortnite‘s main character Jonesy summons different heroes from far-away universes to contain it. Previous heroes summoned by Jonesy before including characters from Tron Legacy and Street Fighter. This time, Fortnite leaks say it’s going to be Marvel’s Ant-Man.

Whenever a new hunter will appear on the island this season, Epic Games puts the image of the character on the portal and encrypts it. When these get discovered by data miners, they grab the code and attempt to decrypt it. Recently, data miners found a new encrypted image. Decrypting it results in a portal that references Ant-Man, which then found its way to Fortnite leaks.

It’s still unclear when we can expect Ant-Man to appear. But as Fortnite leaks point towards Ant-Man’s inclusion in the portal’s story, he’s likely to appear before the arrival of the new Season 6. This means Ant-Man should arrive before March 15, 2021.

Ant-Man’s arrival isn’t surprising, as Fortnite was never really shy about adding characters from everywhere as skins into their game. Ant-Man is definitely not the first Marvel character to arrive on Fortnite. Other Marvel characters to appear on Fortnite include the Black Panther, Black Widow, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Daredevil, Deadpool, and Thanos, among many others. Apart from Marvel, Fortnite also featured characters from its rival publication, DC. DC characters to have featured on Fortnite include Aquaman, Batman, Harley Quinn, Green Arrow, The Joker, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and The Flash.
