Marvel’s Avengers senior producer Dan Matlack briefly mentioned the content during an exchange on the game’s official Discord.
“Spider-Man is what we call an ‘event’ so he will have cut scenes and a story for sure,” he wrote (via MP1ST).

Marvel’s Avengers’ Spider-Man character will be released before the end of the year, Crystal Dynamics confirmed earlier this month.
The announcement ended a lengthy silence around the DLC, which was originally scheduled to be released in “early 2021” but was delayed after the game’s troubled launch also resulted in its first two new characters being pushed back.
Crystal Dynamics associate art director, Jeff Adams, gave fans a taste of what to expect from the Spider-Man content in a PlayStation Blog post last August.
“When Spider-Man comes to our stable of heroes, we’ll be marking his debut with an in-game event that will introduce him to the wider world of Marvel’s Avengers,” he wrote. “The event is comprised of a series of unique challenges for the hero to take on, testing his abilities, and yielding some exciting results.
“And like the rest of our heroes in Marvel’s Avengers, we will offer multiple cosmetic outfits and gameplay experience options, so you can make your vision of the wall crawler a reality.”
