Ever since the critically and commercially successful release of Marvel’s Spider-Man for the PlayStation 4, fans have been clambering to have one particular suit included in the video game’s already wide selection of suits — the Sam Raimi / Tobey Maguire costume. For quite a long time, it seemed as if this suit would simply never make it in the actual game, as other suits were being added, but not this one. Recently, developer Insomniac Games even responded to fan tweets seemingly confirming that they would not put the suit in the game for players to use.
However, luckily, fans can now rejoice as it is official — the costume is now in the game for all owners of the game to use. The best part? It is free to use. All players have to do to unlock the suit is simply update the game, go to their suit selection menu, and it should appear. This is not the only suit appearing in the PS4 Spider-Man video game that is based on a movie suit, either. We already have the “Stark Suit” from Spider-Man: Homecoming, and the “Iron Spider” suit from Avengers: Infinity War. But now, the fans of the original Spider-Man film trilogy can relax and have some fun swinging around the city in classic film style.

We have a special holiday gift for #SpiderManPS4 players. Today’s game update will include a highly requested suit. Hint: It’s webbed and it’s FREE for owners of Marvel’s Spider-Man! pic.twitter.com/6DLTxPFSaE

The video game has been released worldwide since the beginning of September now, and it seems as if developer Insomniac Games is always adding new suits to the wide-spanning roster that is available for players to choose from. These new suits are typically available to unlock with purchases of the new downloadable content packages. The new “Silver Lining” DLC pack includes the new suit featured in Into the Spider-Verse, another movie tie-in. Fans have also been asking the developers if they would include the “Venom” or “Symbiote” suit in Spider-Man, and, if Insomniac Games still have more surprises up their sleeve like today’s, maybe that request is not too far fetched.
Spider-Man is now available on the PlayStation 4.
What We Learned About ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ At CCXP
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios shared some brand new information on their highly-anticipated sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The film, which is the follow-up to 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming marks the return of Tom Holland as Peter Parker following the release of Avengers: Endgame and will also feature the cinematic debut of Mysterio, who is portrayed by Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal.
Here are some of the things we have learned about Spider-Man: Far From Home following its presentation at the 2018 Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil. Click "Next" to find out.
1. Peter Parker & Michelle Will Be Involved Romantically
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw Peter crushing on Liz Allan (Laura Harrier), who has since moved away from Queens, New York with her mother following the fallout of her father Adrian Toomes' (Michael Keaton) crimes as the Vulture. With Liz now out of the picture, we have Michelle Jones (Zendaya) also known as "MJ" that Peter has his eyes on. In Homecoming, Michelle seemed to tow the line between cold and friendly to Peter, with hints that she was romantically interested in him the whole time.
Now, it looks like Peter and Michelle have since grown closer with one another following the events of Homecoming. Perhaps their romantic connection will play a significant role in Peter's motivations in Far From Home.
2. Aunt May Supports Her Nephew As Spider-Man In Far From Home
Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) found out about her beloved nephew Peter's secret at the end of Homecoming. Now that she's aware that he continues his hero work as our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, she is also fully-supportive of him despite the fact that he continues to put himself in danger.
3. Happy Hogan & Aunt May Share A Romantic Affair
This one comes as a bit of a surprise. Based off of information from CCXP, it appears that Aunt May is romantically involved with none other than Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). This certainly won't be awkward for Peter.
4. Spider-Man & Mysterio Start Are Brought Together By Nick Fury
The narrative for Far From Home will begin with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) bringing Spider-Man and Quentin Blake/Mysterio together for a mission in which they must hunt down the Elementals. Mysterio has some knowledge about the Elementals and wants to defeat them to make the world safer.
The unlikely duo has been described to have a "brothers in arms" dynamic. What could possibly go wrong?
5. Spider-Man & Mysterio's Relationship Is The Central Focus
During the presentation at CCXP, Gyllenhaal revealed that Far From Home will be a unique Spider-Man film due to the relationship between the beloved hero and Mysterio:
"The central point of the film is the relationship of Peter with Mysterio, which is a completely new dynamic. Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man. There's no one more professional than him."
Seeing Holland and Gyllenhaal acting alongside eachother will certainly be a highlight.
