A Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 player has suggested adding a funny Flash Thompson podcast to the game, similar to the character in the comics. The game has become the fastest-selling PlayStation game ever, surpassing other popular first-party games. Despite its success, the game is missing some features such as the ability to replay podcasts, character bios, and the social feed, but it remains to be seen if these will be added in the future.

A Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 player is asking the developers to add a funny Flash Thompson podcast where he talks about Spider-Man like in the comics. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has been a massive hit for Insomniac Games, with the web-slinging sequel having sold over 2.5 million copies on launch day. It has become the fastest-selling PlayStation game ever, surpassing Sony’s other first-party games like The Last of Us Part 2 and God of War Ragnarok.

Spider-Man 2 features a large pool of characters, but Flash Thompson is not among them. In the comics and movies, he is renowned as an arrogant character who frequently bullies Peter Parker. The portrayal of Flash Thompson in the MCU has long been debated, with some fans claiming he could be a perfect host for Eddie Brock’s Venom symbiote.

A Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 player suggested the developers include a Flash Thompson podcast where he talks about Spider-Man and tells old stories from high school. Flash having a podcast would be a clever idea to add one of the recurring characters in the comics to the game, where he is mentioned briefly. Reddit user Knowledgefirework first came up with this suggestion, with some fans claiming that they would like to learn what Flash Thompson thinks about Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 characters that are being set up between missions. He can occasionally contact other podcasters, share updates on recent events, and tell how he frequently bullied Peter Parker in high school.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 brings back podcasts from the original game, allowing players to hear what other people think about Spider-Man’s actions. As players swing through the streets of New York, they will get updates regarding recent events, which makes the game even more immersive. However, once they miss the Dankiest and the JJJ podcast, there is no way to replay them because Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 doesn’t include the archive feature. If players are disturbed by a lot of fuss, they can turn off podcasts from the Audio Options menu.

Alongside the inability to replay podcasts, Spider-Man 2 is missing character bios and the social feed features from the original game. Character bios allow players to read up on all villains they encounter in Marvel’s Spider-Man, including Harry Osborn, Vulture, and Shocker. The social feed, on the other hand, shows New Yorkers’ reactions to other characters than Peter Parker. This is where players can post anything and interact with people they protect from bandits. It remains to be seen if Insomniac Games will add these quality-of-life features in the future.
