During the past week, Fortnite players have been busy enjoying the new Marvel-themed features added as part of the game’s Season 4 patch. Along with Marvel-inspired skins such as Wolverine, players were able to roam around new areas filled with Marvel easter eggs. Now, a reliable leak hints that the map will get a new area focused around one of the Avengers – Ant-Man.
There are a lot of rumors going around the internet about the next events coming to Fortnite Season 4. Aside from the new Silver Surfer skin which has now been released in-game, data miners also revealed that the developers are planning to add a She-Hulk skin in the coming weeks. She-Hulk is now a part of the current Battle Pass and even had her own area in the game’s map.

Ant-Man joins Fortnite
Fortnite’s newest leak seems to spin around Ant-Man. A recent update revealed a unique set of codes for a new area on the map called “Ant Manor”. While there is no way to tell if this would feature Scott Lang or Hank Pym, the name “Ant Manor” would likely be pointing to Hank Pym’s mansion.
The leak comes not long after players reported of another rumor. Another rumor surfaced only a day after Fortnite welcomed Season 4. The leak suggests that a new area called Panther monument would be put up near Misty Meadows to honor the Marvel hero, Black Panther.
Alongside the new area on the map, players will also have the chance to obtain a Black Panther skin with a unique ability called Kinetic Absorption – the same kind of power displayed by Black Panther in the movies.
Tons of possibilities
Now that a new area in the map is coming, players are speculating what they are going to find in this new point of interest. The new season has introduced Marvel villains like Doctor Doom that when defeated drops mythical items. A new boss battle with Yellowjacket might be possible with the new update. Players could even have the ability to shrink and grow.
The Ant Manor looks like another Marvel-inspired surprise for the game’s new season. With leaked codenames like “DogHouse” and “Collector”, there is a high probability that Fortnite players could see various characters that haven’t been introduced in the Marvel movies yet, including The Inhumans. With an imminent battle with Galactus confirmed in the Season 4 trailers, it looks like the Avengers are going to use all the help they could get.
