A malfunction in Marvel’s Spider-Man gives the web-swinging hero his black outfit, implying that the famous design may have been included in the game from the start.
The black symbiote suit appears in an unusual Marvel’s Spider-Man glitch, implying that the iconic garment was initially included in the game. Players can step into the web-swinging shoes of Marvel’s friendly neighbourhood hero in Insomniac Games’ open-world adventure, launched exclusively on PlayStation systems in 2018. Marvel’s Spider-Man for PlayStation 5 recently received new outfits inspired by Spider-Man: No Way Home and the renowned superhero game is known for its vast line-up of different costumes.
At launch, Marvel‘s Spider-Man had a wide variety of aesthetic skins, ranging from Insomniac’s original Advanced Suit to clothes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The game’s downloadable campaign, the City That Never Sleeps, adds nine new costumes, including the comic-book-inspired Iron Spider Armor and Peter Parker’s animated design from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Insomniac Games continued to add to the already large pool of Spider-Man outfits with free upgrades, including suits worn by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in their respective live-action features. Even yet, fans continue to ask for further additions, with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 outfit being one of the most popular.
Reddit user Lovekiller745 appeared to have mistakenly acquired a piece of Spider-distinctive Man’s black outfit in an unexpected Marvel’s Spider-Man mishap. The upper part of the Advanced Suit appeared black while viewing it in the game’s menu, with only the eyes and large white chest symbol remaining white. Without colour, Insomniac’s original design is very similar to the conventional black costume, which has a storied history in Spider-Man comics and the origin story of Venom. Some reviewers speculated that the black costume was initially planned for inclusion in Marvel’s Spider-Man and that this error is resurrecting that feature.
While the beloved black suit isn’t accessible for users in Marvel’s Spider-Man, the symbiotic costume is almost expected to appear in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. According to reports, the venom will play a hostile role in the 2023 sequel, and every Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 outfit will feature a symbiote version. This feature would effectively increase the number of available costumes in the game, making Lovekiller745’s black suit glitch a reality. While black suit variants have yet to be confirmed, at least one symbiote outfit is quite likely to debut in Marvel‘s Spider-Man 2.
Spider-Man already has nearly 50 different outfits, each of which pays homage to a different aspect of the wall-colourful crawler’s past. Lovekiller745’s black suit glitch, on the other hand, shows that another alternate costume was planned for inclusion in the game. While fans will never be able to play with the black Advanced Suit in the original game, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will provide them with the opportunity to do so.
On PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, Marvel’s Spider-Man is available.
