One fan directly referenced The Avengers in asking if any other Marvel Superheroes would be making an appearance alongside the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man, to receive a very simple and abrupt answer.
Well, there you have it. It seems that while the game has tons of super-villains for Spidey to fight, it won’t have anyone to help him do it. That is excluding potential DLC of course. The simplicity of the word “No” might mean just that – we won’t see any other heroes in the game.
He doesn’t clarify if they’ll make an appearance in any form – like on a billboard or newspaper, or even just a reference, but it definitely means we won’t see them in person, or in a mission. Unless of course, Intihar is lying to make it a surprise – but that wouldn’t be smart of him, so let’s consider this confirmation of no other heroes in the game.
