We’ve seen no shortage of Marvel characters in Fortnite already, and it looks like Ant-Man will be the latest hero to join the roster. Leakers have shown a portal tease that strongly hints the size-shifting hero will be coming soon, though Epic Games has yet to make the news official.
Portals have been opening up as part of the Zero Point storyline in Fortnite for the last several weeks, and the latest shows a forest floor. The camera is on the ground, with bug noises heard–but Ant-Man himself isn’t seen in the video. Dataminers found the portal is code-named “SmallFry,” which seems to add weight to the Ant-Man prediction.

The portals are typically only open for a short time before we get official confirmation on the crossovers. We’ve seen this with Tron, which featured a portal of the familiar blue-colored digital world before an announcement was made. It was also the case with Street Fighter, which showed off Ryu’s Suzaku Castle stage inside the portal. Most of the characters for Season 6 haven’t been superheroes, with the game instead drawing on a wide number of franchises like Alien, Halo, God of War, Predator, and GI Joe for skins and occasional challenges.
