Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales names in-game street after Chadwick Boseman

Boseman died in August 2020 at the age of 43 due to complications of colon cancer.

If you've been playing Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, you might have noticed that it's missing a major New York City landmark: the Chrysler building, which made an appearance in 2018's Spider-Man and is also present in its remaster.

The game has only been out for a week, so there's a chance there are even more Easter eggs to uncover.

The remastered version of Marvel's Spider-Man is available as part of the Ultimate Edition of Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which retails for $ 69.99.


"In the loving memory of the noble king Chadwick Boseman". Eagle eyed fans were quick to spot tributes to Stan Lee and Chadwick Boseman. His honor, strength, and compassion will resonate with future generations.

Besides this game, a panther statue was included in Fortnite as Epic Games' way to pay homage to the late Black Panther actor. 42nd Street - between 1st and 3rd Avenue - has been renamed to Boseman Way.

Marvel has said they're considering how they will address Boseman's death in the upcoming Black Panther sequel.

Fitting: The tribute was on 42nd street because Boseman's first big role was as Jackie Robinson in 42.


"Spider-Man: Far From Home" concluded with a spider-web rideby Peter ParkerandMary Jane(Zendaya), although the latter did not enjoy as much swinging as their previous incarnations.

Anyway, things don't paint anything right for Spider-Man in his third film inside the UCM.

However, Miles Morales, the Spider-Man featured in the video game and in current Marvel comics, was featured in the hit animated film Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, and that character may become the new Spider-Man on film once Holland hangs up his costume.
