RUMOR: Spider-Man and Possible Web Swinging Coming to Fortnite Game


File this under rumor because nothing has been confirmed, although, given that the new Spider-Man: No Way Home film is coming out soon, this rumor could easily be very true. I could see Marvel and Disney wanting to leverage the Fortnite gaming platform to promote. They’ve done it many times before.

According to the rumor, Epic was working on something codenamed “West Sausage.” The implication supposedly is that it could stand for Web Slinger and players could see web swinging mechanics coming to the Fortnite game!

Given some of the wording, it’s a fair assumption.

This rumor comes from @HYPEX on Twitter.  Here’s what was said:

The account goes on to credit another account, @gameshed_ for some of the information. So I want to make sure I credit them as well.


Spider-Man would finally make an appearance on the game, while many other Marvel characters have already been featured. Given how fans were about the long wait for a ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ trailer, it would make sense that there is a huge demand for this character.

It’s very likely that the new ‘Spider-Man’ film will be the big movie of 2021 and could bring in totals more in line with tent pole franchises before the pandemic. Adding Spider-Man to Fortnite would be a win for both Epic and Marvel.

Of course it’s all simply rumor for now, but it is definitely a very intriguing one.
