Update (Mon 3rd Aug, 2020 18:05 BST): What a mess! After UK retailer Base suggested earlier today that this leak was "not correct" to IGN, Sony has now confirmed that Spider-Man will indeed be exclusive to the PlayStation versions of Marvel's Avengers, and will be added to the game in early 2021. Sorry, Xbox fans!
Original story (Sat 1st Aug, 2020 14:00 BST): There's been some speculation recently that Spider-Man might make an appearance in the upcoming Marvel's Avengers, and according to a leak he will be playable - but only in the PS4 version.
This is coming from the UK retailer Base (spotted by the folks over at Reddit), which seemingly for months has been listing the game for PlayStation along with the phrase, "play as Spider-Man exclusively on PS4."
This reference has since been removed over the past few hours, but nevertheless it looks like there's a very good chance it's true - the game was revealed to be getting "future surprises" for PlayStation players back at its unveiling at E3 2019, so this might be one battle Xbox loses out on - at least for now.
