The modding community for Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered keeps giving, with the latest addition being a suit from the canceled fan film Spider-Man: Lotus. Since its PC release in August, Marvel’s Spider-Man modding community has been prolific in producing new and exciting modifications. Both the excellent quality of the work and the controversy surrounding the fan video seem to be drawing attention to this mod in particular.

In PC games, players often seek mods to extend their enjoyment much past the end of the official story. However, the sheer number of additional outfits and playstyles available in Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is mind-boggling. Mods keep fans of the formerly PlayStation-exclusive game interested in what’s to come, with options ranging from playing as Tobey Maguire’s “pizza time” suit from Spider-Man 2 to other Marvel characters like Daredevil and Wolverine.

While role-playing as a celebrity from a commercially-released film is one thing, making a mod from an abandoned fan film is quite another. Nevertheless, the modification will still delight the majority of players.

Nexus Mods user LDS3D produced the new mod, and Reddit user 2giga2dweebish drew attention to it. According to the mod’s description, it was made by the same person that worked on the costumes for the abandoned Spider-Man: Lotus project.

After the tragic events of No Way Home and the success of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man: Lotus was supposed to tell the narrative of Peter Parker’s grief over the loss of Gwen Stacey. Spider-Gwen has already been made playable in Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered by fans.

Therefore a new mod based on the Spidey design from the fan film was practically inevitable.

This Lotus-inspired outfit serves as a replacement for the game’s “traditional” suit after the patch is installed. As good as the mod is, it generates further discussion of the issues raised by the fan video. This independent fan film originally had Gavin J. Konop and Warren Wayne attached to direct until they were accused of homophobia and racism, respectively.
