Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered Still Has an Avengers Reference

In 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man, Peter Parker makes a reference to the Avengers being located on the west coast — a nod to the Square Enix-published Marvel’s Avengers game that came out this year. Some who received early copies of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered for PlayStation 5 claimed that the reference seemed to have been removed, but it turns out that it is still there. As shown in the tweet below, the reference is still present — it is speculated it did not appear before due potentially to other game audio interrupting it.
