"When creating our representation of the city we wanted to include as many landmarks as we could to add to the sense of immersion", explained Stevenson.

While a lot of people are expressing their excitement over finally getting a PlayStation 5, one bug from Spider-Man: Miles Morales is having everyone laughing.

Not a deal breaker, but an interesting revelation.

The redditor noticed a stretch of 42nd Street between 1st and 3rd Avenue that had been renamed 'Boseman Way, ' in memory of the star who played Spider-Man's longtime ally. Filming for Black Panther II will begin in July 2021, though there are no concrete plans regarding Boseman's character of T'Challa beyond the refusal to use a digital double.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales launched to general acclaim alongside the PS5 on November 12, making it one of two Marvel games, the other being Marvel's Avengers, to release in the wake of Chadwick Boseman's passing in August of this year.

Stan Lee is the the comic book creator of Marvel and has acquired Legendary status among fans. His honor, strength, and compassion will resonate with future generations. It's been part of a long tradition of including Stanley in various Marvel projects, whether it's movies, books, or anything else. The officially licensed Marvel Spider Man Streetlight LED Desk Lamp stands approximately 16-inches tall and features Spider-Man dangling from a miniature street light, which doubles as a desk lamp. Especially considering how recent their deaths are.
