Ant-Man is the latest Marvel superhero to arrive in Fortnite, and the teases leading up to his arrival were a tiny bit hilarious.

The Fortnite Team announced that Ant-Man will be arriving in the Item Shop alongside the Toothpick Pickaxe and Ant-Man’s trusty steed, Ant-Tonio, as Back Bling.

While Ant-Man joining Fortnite is a wonderful thing on its own, the teases leading up to his official announcement were just as great. Fortnite’s Twitter shared three different images of small Ant-Man on other Marvel characters, including Cable, Blade, and Captain America. You can see all the images in the slideshow below.

Ant-Man is the latest Marvel superhero to join Fortnite, and the latest pop culture crossover character since Ripley and the Xenomorph from the Alien franchise.

This addition is surely a welcome one for fans of Ant-Man, who have to wait until 2022 to see Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Michael Peña are all returning for the third Ant-Man film, with Peyton Reed once again directing.

It has been reported that Lovecraft Country star Jonathan Majors has been cast in a major villain role, and their sources claim he will be playing Kang the Conqueror.
