According to a recent rumour, Marvel’s renowned wall-crawler Spider-Man will be brought to Fortnite in a high-profile crossover in the near future. Epic Games’ popular battle royale shooter has a long history of collaborating with films; television shows, comic books, and other video games.
Fortnite’s partnership with Naruto: Shippuden was the game’s most recent event; and it was far more significant than a regular collaboration. The majority of Fortnite’s crossovers are aesthetic skins and items that players can buy and wear in-game. Due to the game’s numerous crossovers, players can be spotted costumed as Deadpool, Batman, Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead, or Paul Atreides from Dune.
The game’s latest crossover with the popular Naruto: Shippuden anime series; on the other hand, went above and beyond by introducing a detailed new Creative Hub as well as various cosmetics. The Hidden Leaf Village is recreated in this custom-built terrain, allowing gamers to immerse themselves in the fictitious ninja village.
A Fortnite-The Book of Boba Fett crossover was also announced later; however, only time will tell if this partnership culminates in aesthetic skins or a more substantial piece of battle royale content. According to an apparent leak from Fortnite Intel, a well-known Fortnite leak Twitter account; Spider-Man will be coming to the game soon. While the leak is light on details, it does reveal that the web-swinging superhero will not make an appearance until the game’s next Season 9.
This release could be timed to coincide with the December 17 release of Spider-Man: No Way Home; a highly anticipated feature. Other Marvel characters, such as Deadpool and Captain America; already have Fortnite skins, so the inclusion of the company’s most popular hero seems obvious.
The Marvel superhero would be introduced to the game alongside a brand-new web-swinging mechanic.

Given Spider-immense Man’s popularity, it may come as a surprise that the acrobatic arachnid isn’t already in Fortnite. However, reports have circulated that the friendly neighbourhood cop was formerly involved with the shooter. According to a recent rumour about Fortnite and Spider-Man, the Marvel superhero would be introduced to the game alongside a brand-new web-swinging mechanic. Because in-game files hint at swiping physics that aren’t presently present in the game; a mysterious object dubbed a “WestSausage” is likely to be a web-shooter.
Spider-Man appears to be a shoo-in for inclusion in Fortnite as Marvel’s most famous and beloved character. The character would fit in well with other crossover characters; and his arrival may coincide with the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home next month. While the wall-crawling crossover is still just a rumour, the leak hints that Spider-Man will make an official announcement soon.
