Spider-Gwen, one of the madders’ favorite characters, has been substituted for Peter Parker’s Spider-Man in Marvel’s Spider-Man since the game’s release on PC. Where building mods to Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 or PS5 would have proved impossible and unavailable before, the PC port’s release has opened up a new universe of possibilities.
And given Spider-increasing Gwen’s popularity since the release of Into the Spider-Verse, it’s no surprise she’s been chosen for a mod.
Since the game’s release on August 12, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered modding community has positively exploded in popularity. There have been hundreds of new mods added just in the last week alone, and the number seems to be growing daily.
Although most initial mods are straightforward model replacements that give Spider-Man new attire, several other intriguing mods are being added. One example is the animations from Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales replacing the base animations for Peter Parker.
In the collection of new mods for Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, Spider-Gwen is a relatively recent entry. The DrYongers-created mod has nearly 1,000 downloads since it was uploaded to NexusMods on Saturday. The mod creator used the character design from Into the Spider-Verse as inspiration, replacing Spider-Man’s model with one based on Spider-Gwen.
Players must also download the Modified SMPC Tool, which permits essential character modding in Marvel’s Spider-Man.
Those questioning whether replacing Peter Parker’s Spider-Man with Spider-Gwen makes much sense have a good point. The mod alters none of the character animations, Peter Parker’s voice, or the character’s name in the narrative. It’s just a simple way of being able to swing around Marvel’s Spider-open Man’s world as Spider-Gwen.

There are additional mods that can help flesh out the Spider-Gwen experience in Marvel’s Spider-Man. There are mods to turn off Spider-Man’s dialogue; as noted, mods replace the animations in the game.
A more powerful mod could change the game’s story, models, and spirits to make Spider-Gwen the main focus.
Although this Spider-Gwen mod still has several flaws, it is proof of the character’s rising popularity outside the comic book community. In Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, the follow-up to Into the Spider-Verse, Spider-Gwen’s reappearance is eagerly anticipated.
Leaks have also confirmed that a Spider-Gwen skin is coming to Fortnite as part of next season’s battle pass. Now, if Marvel could greenlight a new Spider-Gwen comic after cancelling her last one, Spider-Gwen fans would be well set.
