A Spider-Man PS4 player notices a subtle yet touching Aunt May moment during the game

One fan just noticed a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it social media exchange between Peter Parker and his beloved Aunt May in Marvel’s Spider-Man, one that’s sure to put a warm smile on the face of any comic fan. Insomniac spared no expense in filling its blockbuster 2018 superhero game with plenty of details and hidden Easter Eggs for hardcore comic fans and casual players alike, be they references to other Marvel heroes or just the way voice actor Yuri Lowenthal acts out his lines differently whenever Spidey’s swinging through the air or walking on the ground.

One eagle-eyed Spider-Man PS4 player uncovers a cute and relatable exchange between Peter and Aunt May hidden in the in-game social media feed.

Like any good Spider-Man story, Marvel’s Spider-Man deals with the complications of Peter Parker’s double-life as both a web-slinging crime fighter and an unassuming New Yorker with more bills and family obligations than he can fit into a busy schedule of super-heroics. One of the key players in the latter part of that equation is Peter’s beloved Aunt May, who in Insomniac’s universe has been volunteering at a local homeless shelter while Peter works to stop the sinister Mr. Negative and his Inner Demon crime syndicate – an arc that leads to great personal tragedy for both Parkers by the time the credits roll.

Reddit user sammcoefc180 noticed a surprisingly cute exchange between Peter and May tucked away in Marvel’s Spider-Man’s in-game social media feed and posted a screenshot to the SpidermanPS4 subreddit a couple of days ago. Aunt May posts a heartfelt “thank you” message to the FEAST Shelter and its owner, Martin Lee, for the recent party celebrating her fifth year working there. This post is done in all-caps, which prompts Peter to gently remind his elderly aunt not to do that if she isn’t yelling. May posts another text thanking him, this time in lower case, and says that she’s “still learning” the intricacies of texting.

Little character moments like this helped make Marvel’s Spider-Man a breakout success when it launched back in 2018, and it has since gone down in history alongside Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham franchise as one of the greatest comic-based video games ever made. Insomniac is currently planning a sequel, as hinted at in a recent social media post by Miles Morales voice actor Nadji Jeter – who himself recently stepped into the gaming spotlight thanks to last year’s excellent Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

Part of what makes Spider-Man such an endearing comic book icon is just how grounded and relatable heroes like Peter and Miles can be when they’re out of costume, and Insomniac understands that fully in their critically acclaimed Spider-Man games. Seeing Peter inform his aunt about proper texting etiquette like any Millennial would is such a small but charming moment that brings that sense of realism to the fantastical world of Marvel’s Spider-Man – and makes the drama that unfolds afterward all the more gut-wrenching.
