Marvel’s Spider-Man Gets Two Fantastic New Suits Today

The web-slinger dons the Bombastic Bag-Man and Future Foundation suits in today's free update.

Hey, True Believers! Christos Gage here, one of the writers of Marvel’s Spider-Man, available exclusively on PlayStation 4 – and more than a few Spidey-related comics like the recent Spider-Geddon event which our web-slinger starred in. If you’ve seen all the Easter Eggs in the game, you’ve probably surmised that I, like the rest of the team, am a gigantic and longtime comic book fan. Which is why I was so excited by Marvel’s tease on January the 8th that the fabulous Fantastic Four are back in the spotlight – and back in Marvel Games – as part of Marvel’s “World’s Greatest Week.” To celebrate, we’ve been working with Insomniac Games to include some fantastic content, available in today’s patch 1.14 for Marvel’s Spider-Man on PlayStation 4!

“But what do the Fantastic Four have to do with Spider-Man?” you may ask. Or maybe you don’t – because you know that Spidey has a long history with the Fantastic Four, going back to 1963’s Amazing Spider-Man #1, when our rookie wall-crawler tried to join the team – only to end up fighting them! That was just the beginning of many years of adventure (including the 2010 Spider-Man/Fantastic Four miniseries written by yours truly and drawn by Mario Alberti) that has led us to today, with the new Fantastic Four comic written by longtime Spidey-scribe and game story contributor Dan Slott.

There have been too many cool Spidey/Fantastic Four moments to count, but one of the most memorable in their illustrious history was in Amazing Spider-Man #258, when Spidey swung by the Fantastic Four’s headquarters for help with the alien symbiote he was wearing as a costume (that’s right, it later became Venom). The Fantastic Four got it off, but then Spidey was left in his underpants (we’d never do something that silly in the game…wait, I’m being told we did). So Spidey borrowed a Fantastic Four costume…but they don’t have masks! So, to conceal Peter Parker’s secret identity, his frenemy, the Human Torch, gave Spidey a grocery bag to wear on his head. As The Thing might say, what a revoltin’ development!

Another chapter in their shared story came when Spidey actually joined the Fantastic Four, then calling themselves the Future Foundation, and they all wore cool black and white costumes. Hey, Dan wrote many of those issues, and I scripted one or two myself! That suit was awesome looking because – but you don’t want to hear me yap, look for yourself!

How sweet is that? The Bombastic Bag-Man and the Future Foundation suit – and they can be yours to use in the game simply by downloading patch 1.14 for the game by connecting online to the PlayStation Network. But what’s that you say, web-heads? You want to see how they actually look in-game? Well I have some good news for you!

At 2pm Pacific today, you can check out Insomniac Games’ livestream where they will be playing the game with both of the new suits! Just go to at 2pm Pacific.

And once again – THANK YOU from all of us at Marvel, Insomniac, and PlayStation for the unbelievable reception you’ve given our game. It was a labor of love, made by fans for fans and we hope you enjoy this special new content! If you haven’t picked up Marvel’s Spider-Man yet, make sure you , available exclusively on PlayStation 4. Looking forward to seeing your #PS4Share in the new suits!

The FF suit is amazing. Will be doing my New Game+ playthrough with it. Thank you Sony and Insomniac!

    Awesome. Insomniac/Sony continue to support this game. 9 million sold and multiple Game of the Year awards well deserved.

This is highly laughable. All the YouTubers were saying that the Fantastic Four would be in the game and Fisk Tower was gonna be swapped out for the Baxter Building. Regardless, thanks for more skins that I will not be using in my game.

    You’ve been misinformed by YouTubers? The most credible source of information since the Encyclopaedia?!?! Someone call the police!

    Calm down, the skins are great. No one cares if you’ll use them or not.

    How disgustingly entitled and unappreciative you are

    They’re not going to swap out a building that’s integral to the opening act of the game. Anyone who knows better than to believe the unwashed masses on YT looking for video hits would know that.

    Highly laughable? There’s gotta be some irony in there somewhere

Do any of the costumes, plus any of the ones previously released have any special powers to them?

    no they do not, they’re just cosmetic suits

Before that tease earlier in the month I’d assumed the FF suits would be saved for the sequel. But you guys (sniff) you’re just so (sniff) AWESOME!

I need some more DLC if I’m going to play with these, I already 100%ed everything, including NG+! Is there actually any DLC that we know of planned or was TCTNS it for the game?

I love these free suits and all, but the game could really use a 60fps mode on the Pro. I mean god, it’s 2019 FFS.
