Unveiling a Multiverse of Collaborations
Fortnite consistently surprises its community with new and exciting crossovers, ranging from Dragon Ball Z to Dead Space and even Indiana Jones.

The No Way Home Set brought Zendaya’s MJ and Tom Holland’s Spidey to Fortnite, accompanied by a captivating unmasking emote. Chapter 3: Season 3 introduced Spider-Man Zero, joining forces with Wolverine and Iron Man in the Zero War.
To celebrate the release of the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse animated movie, Fortnite welcomed Spider-Gwen in Chapter 3: Season 4 Battle Pass.
The Quest for Miles Morales
The latest teaser from Fortnite hints at an upcoming collaboration with Marvel, intriguing fans with the question “Where is Miles?”
This reference alludes to Miles Morales, a beloved Spider-Man character who gained popularity through the animated Spider-Verse franchise and the 2020 action-adventure game Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
While Fortnite already offers various Spider-Man outfits, players eagerly await the addition of Miles Morales to the roster of superheroes, further expanding the game’s captivating universe.

Additionally, discussions abound regarding the highly anticipated Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, set to launch on the PlayStation 5 in late 2023, featuring both Peter Parker and Miles Morales.
A Perfect Timing for the Multiverse
The announcement of this Fortnite and Spider-Man crossover comes just a couple of weeks ahead of the theatrical release of Spider-Man: Across the Spiderverse on June 2. As the collaboration unfolds, Epic Games is expected to unveil more information about the partnership, enabling players to immerse themselves in their own version of the multiverse depicted in the animated movie.
