Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has paid a heart-touching tribute to the late actor, Chadwick Boseman, which has won Marvel fans’ hearts. The game was finally released this past Friday with players getting an insane amount of fun to embark on the adventure as both Peter Parker and Miles Morales.
As the players explore New York, they discover more and more easter eggs that are associated with the Marvel franchise. While the first game featured pretty famous characters of the superhero universe, the new PlayStation 5 game has surprised the fans with a new gesture that has left fans in absolute delight.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Game Paid Tribute to Chadwick Boseman
Insomniac Games eventually released their highly anticipated Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 game on the PlayStation 5 this Friday. While it contains plenty of new Easter eggs, it has also modified the existing ones that were present in the first game.
In the new game, one can choose to pay a visit to the Wakanda Embassy in Midtown which was already present in the first game. For the unversed, one can visit the Wakanda Embassy in Manhattan’s Midtown, opposite the Method Theatre.
However, this time, it gives a heartwarming tribute to the actor, Chadwick Boseman as the the street with the Embassy has been renamed ‘Boseman Way’. Not only that, Marvel and Insomniac Games have added a classic feature that lets a player do the iconic ‘Wakanda Forever’ salute.
Upon reaching the doors of the Embassy as Miles Morales, players will be given a prompt to press the triangle button. Doing so will allow the web-slinger to cross his arms performing the ‘Wakanda Forever’ salute. One must note that players can pay their tributes only as Morales.
There is no trophy attached to this tribute as the developers have only kept this gesture to honor the late actor. However, this is not the only Easter Egg developers have planned in the game as it also features Boseman’s iconic Black Panther suit.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Game Features a Black Panther Suit
Sony has made sure to make this game extra interesting by putting in small gestures that can make fans leave in awe. In the game, players can unlock the Black Panther-inspired Spider-Man costume.
Players can don the iconic Forever Suit for Miles Morales which highly resembles the Wakanda prince’s T’Challa’s primary Black Panther suit. The game’s costume features a huge Spider emblem on the chest designed for the web-slinger with the suit being another way to pay tribute to the late actor.
However, this costume can only be unlocked after the player reaches Level 25 after which it can be accessed from your menu. This has completely won fans’ hearts with online commentators reacting to the new Easter eggs from the new PS5 game.
One fan reacted to the news in the comment section of IGN‘s YouTube video stating, “Chadwick. You still the man.”
A second fan wrote,
“That’s really amazing. May Chadwick Boseman rest in peace. Wakanda Forever!”
A third user wrote,
“That’s really awesome of em to do.”
Meanwhile, others expressed their heartfelt emotion by writing the iconic chant, “Wakanda forever” in the comment section.
The MCU actor was suffering from colon cancer which he kept private. He passed away due to the same condition in 2020. Later, the Marvel Studios paid tribute to him in several ways, with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever solely serving to bid farewell to his portrayal of the superhero in the MCU universe.
