Fortnite Ant-Man skin could be up next if these leakers are right

It looks like a Fortnite Ant-Man skin is on the way, according to finds from leakers, bringing at least one more superhero to the game before the arrival of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6.

Leaker VastBlast shared that they decrypted the contents of one of the game's portals, which appears to show a forest floor from a ground-level view. The background music for the portal is composed of frantic strings and anomalous effects that sound sort of like a colony of ants busy at work. Reverse image searching the portal's picture reveals that it's a stock image (opens in new tab) titled "the world seen from the point of view of an ant".

Meanwhile, dataminer InTheShade found that this particular portal is codenamed "SmallFry," (opens in new tab) which - while being less specific about the whole ants thing - would certainly line up with Ant-Man as well. They later added (opens in new tab) that there's no indication the skin will feature a built-in emote, which means either: a) there won't be any accompanying emotes at all, or b) everybody will be able to use any accompanying emotes.

For reference, The Flash's Quick Bite emote wasn't built-in, so there's a good chance that Epic Games would take the same approach when making extras to go along with Ant-Man. Now we just have to wait and see when the size-changing hero will show up - or if turns out to actually be Flik from A Bug's Life, or something. You never really know with Fortnite.

Speaking of emotes, we do know that the Fortnite sea shanty is still stuck in our head.
