No, Marvel's Spider-Man is not getting a PC port, at least not yet. While Sony has committed to bringing Horizon Zero Dawn over to PC later this year, guaranteed PC versions of PlayStation 4 exclusives aren't quite here yet. Still, you can technically play Marvel's Spider-Man on your PC for a short time.

Starting this month, Marvel's Spider-Man is being added to PlayStation Now (PS Now), Sony's game streaming subscription. This is part of Sony's initiative to add more premium games for a very limited time, making the service more attractive. Marvel's Spider-Man will be available on PS Now through July 7, 2020. If you're new to the service, you might not know that you can then use PS Now to stream the game to your PC. Here's how to do it.
