The Game Detail You Missed In Spider-Man 3's Set Photo

Whenever another entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe rolls around, you can usually expect two things: quality and Easter eggs that reference other parts of the Marvel multiverse. Since Marvel characters have technically been around longer than Marvel comics, the filmmakers have decades worth of material to pull from. Spider-Man 3 (which will probably be called Homesick or some other phrase with the word "home" in it) has already started filming, and as is tradition nowadays, set photos have leaked onto the internet. One picture teases an Easter egg-flavored piece of worldbuilding many gamers might recognize.


A lucky resident of downtown Atlanta, who goes by the Reddit username of Archon457, accidentally bumped into a truck with the acronym "F.E.A.S.T." Oh, and the truck was parked alongside a garbage truck labeled "NYC Sanitation," so either the city of Atlanta is in desperate need of garbage cleanup help or Archon457 unknowingly stumbled into the Spider-Man 3 film set. Now, acronyms are as common in the Marvel multiverse as they are in the real world, so what made Archon457 so sure the F.E.A.S.T. truck was part of the set? Because underneath the acronym were the words "Food, Emergency, Aid, Shelter, & Training", the exact same words that F.E.A.S.T. stand for in the recent Spider-Man video games.


While most audiences will probably assume the F.E.A.S.T. truck is a reference to just the Spider-Man video games, the organization has actually been part of Marvel canon since 2008. Much like the video game incarnation, F.E.A.S.T. in the comics was initially introduced as a charity for the homeless population of New York City, and it was run by Martin Li. And, again the video game version mirrored comic continuity since both incarnations of F.E.A.S.T. were actually fronts for the criminal activities of Li's alter ego, Mister Negative.

Since the plot of Spider-Man 3 is still a mystery, the truck could be a simple Easter egg that will please fans of the Spider-Man video games, or it could indicate that Martin Li will serve a role in the movie. While the latter seems unlikely since it will already star Alfred Molina and Jamie Foxx as Doctor Octopus and Electro, respectively, fans won't know for sure until the film hits theaters — or until other Atlanta citizens encounter actors in black-and-white masks and business suits.
