Spider-Man: Miles Morales Features A Touching Dedication In Its Credits

The game features a memorial to an actor who's not directly connected to Spider-Man.


Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales launches for PS4 and PS5 on November 12, giving you another reason to swing through the (now snowy) streets of Manhattan as new spidey on the block, Miles Morales. And while it's full of its own touching story moments, one of its most impactful might be at the end.

In the credits for Spider-Man: Miles Morales, developer Insomniac Games has included a tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman. The Black Panther lead sadly passed away earlier this year but left behind a strong legacy with his turn as the superhero on screen, providing many young fans with their first taste of representation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"His honor, strength, and compassion will reverberate for generations to come," reads the tribute, with Insomniac dedicating its latest work to the actor.

This tribute to Chadwick Boseman isn't the only notable one featured in Miles Morales. Situated in Harlem, you can find a massive mural dedicated to the Black Lives Matter movement, along with a suit for Miles that represents the movement's yellow and black colors.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales is much more than just the same game with a different protagonist. Insomniac has paid attention to Miles and his characterization, which critic Jordan Ramée positively pointed out in our Spider-Man: Miles Morales review. "The way he leaps off of rooftops and flips backwards to face the camera before falling into a headfirst dive is just full of the exaggerated swagger of a Black teen," writes Ramée. "It gives me goosebumps every time he does it, especially as the music begins to swell."
