Insomniac Games confirms you can change Spider-Man's suit in upcoming game

The Marvel Cinematic Universe seems like a tightly controlled machine, with every part working in accordance with every other part, but that is absolutely not the case when you factor in anything that is tangentially connected to the MCU, like the Netflix shows or the new Spider-Man universe that Sony is launching with Homecoming. X-Men went to Fox while Spider-Man was shipped to Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Potentially complicating matters however could be the apparent dispute between the status of Sony's upcoming spinoff movies Venom and Silver & Black, with Kevin Feige stating that they are separate from the MCU, and Amy Pascal seemingly believing that they exist in the same world as Spider-Man: Homecoming. This was confirmed by both Kevin Feige and Spider-Man: Homecoming director, Jon Watts.

"Spider-man", due for release in 2018, is being developed by Insomniac Games, the group behind PlayStation offerings such as "Resistance" and "Ratchet & Clank".

In the past, Pascal casted doubt over Spider-Man's longterm placement in the MCU when the Sony producer spoke with Collider. The statement sent fans into a frenzy given how this could potentially derail his progress in the movies.

"And I think the investment that the fans get to feel in being a part of a larger story and understanding what's happening, I think is something that I know Sony would want to emulate", she said. "I think that is what she was trying to say as opposed to putting a ticking clock [on Spider-Man]".

Further, the filmmaker pointed out there isn't an expiration date on the deal or Spider-Man's time in the MCU. This is a bit surprising, as it was previously implied that Holland's Spider-Man would not appear in the films at all, and it's not certain how it would even work.
