Sony recently announced, via the PlayStation Blog,
that Spider-Man is set to become a playable character in Marvel’s Avengers. Very cool, but the catch being the web-slinger will only be available on PlayStation consoles when he swings into the picture in 2021.

No doubt this is Sony using the exclusive license agreement it has for the Spider-Man character, keeping the spandex New Yorker fully exclusive to the PlayStation platform. This means leaving Xbox, PC and Stadia fans of the web-slinger empty handed when the free character DLC arrives next year.

This news follows the first DLC character announcement Hawkeye being available on all platforms after launch. A move that has received mixed response on social media on the account of Hawkeye being a B-tier superhero.

Obviously PlayStation fans are happy (some are gloating) while other fans are saying they plan on moving from the Xbox One X version to picking up Marvel’s Avengers on PS4. Which was probably the plan heading into the deal. Of course, there’s also a number of people not happy with the decision of locking a fan-favourite character to one platform, going so far as to potentially boycott the release.

On the decision to bring Spider-Man to the game Crystal Dynamics have stated they are "hard at work making [him] just as great on the sticks as he is on the page", adding "when he's arcing through the air on his web line, we want you to feel graceful and light, and be able to utilise a variety of web configurations and gadgets to enhance your traversal”.

We reckon that in order to level the playing field Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix need to look back at the release of Soul Calibur II - where the GameCube version got Link from The Legend of Zelda. What we’re saying is, bring Spawn to the Xbox One and Series X version of Marvel’s Avengers.

With the Beta launching this week on August 7, this will be gamers first chance to check out what Crystal Dynamics have been cooking up. It’s safe to say that the Beta has some heavy lifting to do after the lukewarm reception to the E3 2019 debut. With Thor looking more like Chris Hemsworth’s body double it wasn’t the greatest first impression.

Marvel’s Avengers launches on September 4 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadia and at launch for the next generation consoles Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
