A gamer’s four-year-old noticed a plot hole in Marvel’s Spider-Man game, questioning why a character didn’t call for help when captured. Users in the comments make jokes about the situation and discuss other logic-related issues in the game, such as enemies not looking up or screaming during takedowns. Perhaps Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 can improve stealth to eliminate mistakes like this, with fans suggesting that the sequel take inspiration from the Batman: Arkham series.

A four-year-old recently noticed a funny “plot hole” in Marvel’s Spider-Man. Marvel’s Spider-Man was officially released in 2018, and it received three pieces of DLC as post-launch content. Since then, developer Insomniac Games has released a remastered version of Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS5 and PC, in addition to Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales as a PS5 launch title.

It’s unlikely for a story-driven game to not have any plot holes or unresolved issues, and the Spider-Man games are no exception. As an example, there are some weird plot holes present in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, as some things are left unexplained by the game’s narrative. Now, a four-year-old has managed to notice another plot hole in Marvel’s Spider-Man, as one enemy’s actions don’t make much sense.

A Reddit user named illforgetthisname- has shared an image from Marvel’s Spider-Man with this oddity, showing two bad guys hanging from a beam. As seen in the image, one enemy is completely covered in web, but the other’s face is fully visible on the screen. This prompted the Reddit poster’s four-year-old son to question the opponent’s decision to not yell for help, as other henchmen in the area could have been notified of Spider-Man’s presence. It’s a funny issue that can probably be found in all video games in some fashion, and changing the way the takedowns work to avoid this logic flaw could annoy the player base more than anything else.

Many users in the comments section make jokes about the situation, with one stating that the enemy has fully accepted his fate. Some players also take this opportunity to comment on how Spider-Man doesn’t kill people, although users have accidentally managed to break this rule while playing the game. Another gamer also wonders why enemies don’t look up in Marvel’s Spider-Man, as they would probably see their allies hanging from beams and walls.

This is followed by a discussion on the stealth gameplay of Marvel’s Spider-Man, with some fans having an issue with how enemies don’t scream as users pull them away. A number of gamers call for improved stealth in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, with one player wanting the development team to take inspiration from the Batman: Arkham series.

While Insomniac Games hasn’t revealed a ton of stealth gameplay from Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, the combat will probably get improvements across the board. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 did receive a lengthy demo at the PlayStation Showcase event in May, and it’ll be interesting to see if Sony decides to reveal any more uninterrupted gameplay footage before its release.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is now available on PS5 and PC.
