It’s Fantastic Four Week!

Now, despite the final DLC, Silver Lining, and indeed the Raimi suit being released, it appears that the kind people over at Insomniac Games aren’t quite finished yet.

During a  livestream, Marvel’s Ryan Penagos revealed that something “fantastic” is coming to Marvel’s Spider-Man very soon.

You can take a look at the Tweet below.

Unfortunately, that is all we got. Not a lot to go on. But as comic book fanatics, I’m sure everyone has a pretty decent guess as to what is in store for us.

One thing to mention is that I don’t think we’ll be getting any additional missions, well, definitely not on the scale of previous DLC’s. However, even if we got some fun side missions that involved helping the Fantastic Four behind the scenes, that would be amazing. Imagine seeing the Fantastic Four though… What a treat for fans.

But no, I think it’s safe to say we could be getting a particularly memorable suit. The infamous Bombastic Bagman suit.

Here is a bit of history surrounding the weird and wacky costume.

After Spider-Man separated from the venom symbiote which gave him the iconic black suit, Peter was given a spare Fantastic Four suit to wear on his web-swing home. With his genius intellect, Spider-Man knew that if he wore this outfit people would recognize him, since the Fantastic Four don’t wear masks. In a bid to keep his identity a secret, he put a bag over his head.

Greatest origin story ever. it’s short, it’s sweet, and it’s brilliant.

Another guess would be Spider-Man’s black-and-white Future Foundation suit. Which he wore after the death of Johnny Storm. But the Bombastic Bagman is definitely a fan favourite and would just be a lot of fun.

Regardless of what is introduced into the game, anything added is sure to be welcomed with open arms by all Spider-Man fans.

Currently, we have no idea when we’ll be getting the new content, but keep your eyes peeled as it should be fairly soon. Do you have any guesses as to what awaits us? Let us know in the comment section below.
