Spider-Man comes to Marvel’s Avengers as a PlayStation exclusive

Crystal Dynamics has finally revealed when Spider-Man will arrive in Marvel’s Avengers video game. The webslinger will join the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game on November 30th as a PlayStation exclusive.

There will be a hero event to accompany Spidey’s debut. After discovering AIM’s plan to make its Synthoid army unstoppable, Spider-Man teams up with the Avengers to tackle the threat. Unfortunately, Crystal Dynamics hasn’t yet offered a proper look at its take on the hero.

The studio initially said it would add Spider-Man early this year, but that didn’t pan out. Along with Spider-Man, an update later this month will add more cosmetic items (including outfits inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe), a new type of enemy called Echoes and a Klaw raid. The resource and gear upgrade systems will also be reworked and the power level cap will be increased.

Jenna Dewan’s Lucy Lane returning for Superman & Lois

Jenna Dewan is set to reprise her role as Lucy Lane for the upcoming second season of Superman & Lois. The actress, who will be credited as a recurring role, appeared as the sister of Lois Lane on Supergirl during the first season of the CBS turned CW drama. This will be her first time back in the Arrowverse since 2016, and will mark the first time that Lucy and Lois Lane have shared the screen in this continuity.

Chloe Zhao confirms a cameo in an Eternals post-credits scene

Spoiler warning if you haven’t yet seen Marvel’s Eternals.

Like most Marvel movies, Eternals contained two additional scenes throughout the end credits. The second of these features Kit Harington’s Dane Whitman approaching and opening a case that reveals a sword inside. As he prepares to touch the sword, Dane says, “I’m sorry, I have to try.” He’s then interrupted by the voice of an offscreen character who says, “Sure you’re ready for that, Mr. Whitman?”

In an interview with Fandom, director Chloe Zhao confirmed the identity of this voice as Mahershala Ali’s Blade, making this the official debut of the daywalker in the MCU. What this means for the future of Blade’s story remains to be seen.
