Spider-Man coming to Marvel's Avengers in 2021 exclusively for PlayStation

PlayStation and Square Enix are teaming up to include Spider-Man as a post-launch PlayStation-exclusive hero in Marvel's Avengers next year. 

The announcement comes courtesy of a PlayStation Blog post that details some of the behind-the-scenes work in getting Spider-Man into the game. The post doesn't reveal much else about this version of the character, besides stating that his look will be inspider by Steve Ditko's webbed-armpit version of the character and that he'll use advanced web-shooters courtesy of Hank Pym. This makes it much more likely that he won't be the Insomniac Games version of the character. 


The blog ends by dating the addition of Spider-Man with a vague "early 2021" and promising that he'll be available to players at no extra cost. Expect a Spider-Man themed event when he arrives on PlayStation consoles early next year.  

We previously learnt that Hawkeye would be coming as one of the first four post-launch heroes to Marvel's Avengers, and found out some of the content we can expect in the playable beta that starts next week.
