Don’t fret, easter egg enthusiasts – Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered didn’t remove that reference to the Avengers. There was some chatter on social media earlier today over a clip that apparently showed Spidey forgetting where the Avengers lived. But another clip shared later reveals that the super team is intact.
The original concern over the removed voice line came from well-known PlayStation fan and Kinda Funny co-founder Greg Miller. The way it’s supposed to work is that Spider-Man can find Avengers Tower in New York City. If he takes a picture of it, Spidey will remark “Avengers Tower, so cool! Too bad they’re never around to use it. They’re on the west coast or something. Probably surfing.” Except when Miller was playing the PS5 remaster of the game, that comment was cut short.
In Miller’s playthrough, Spidey didn’t make the West Coast reference. This led to a mix of reactions. Some pointed out that the police chase could have cut off the line, as new voice lines get priority in Marvel’s Spider-Man. Others theorized that it was left out intentionally to disassociate the game from this year’s Marvel’s Avengers. That game saw the team setting up shop in San Francisco. However, the PlayStation version is supposed to have its own Spider-Man as a playable character. The thought was that Insomniac removed to line so that fans wouldn’t think its Spider-Man is the Marvel’s Avengers Spider-Man. Or, even worse, that Avengers’ poor performance is killing crossover potential.
The conspiracy theories are just that, however: theories. This was evidenced when IGN PlayStation Lead Jonathon Dornbrush shared his clip of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered. He also played on the PS5, but was able to hear the whole line as it was in the original game.
Dornbrush notes that it did take him a few tries to make it happen – nearby voice lines cut Spidey off. He also says that this is probably what happened to Miller.
So there you have it: there’s no conspiracy to cut off Marvel’s Avengers from the rest of Marvel gaming. The game still isn’t doing great, but it’s not yet dead.
