Both are designed to protect your system from any outside/inside threat. A firewall's duty is to block unwanted network communications including outgoing ones. Antivirus deals with malicious programs that enter into a system and helps to eliminate them. Unscrupulous programmers always create new malicious programs or viruses. Hence regular updation is necessary for an antivirus package. Nowadays most of the antivirus programs are enabled for regular virus database updation.
