Not one, but two new Marvel games are coming from Insomniac Games. Following the reveal of Marvel’s Wolverine, Insomniac dropped a small teaser trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 (which should’ve been 2 Spider-Men!).
The trailer is brief but it does a great job at establishing that this is a game where you can play as both Peter Parker and Miles Morales and that together, the two are unstoppable crimefighters.
“Much of the development team that brought you Marvel’s Spider-Man is returning to produce Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, including Bryan Intihar (creative director) and Ryan Smith (game director). Today’s game footage trailer is merely just a glimpse at what’s in store in terms of the new abilities our heroes will acquire, suits they will wear (more on that some other time), and the villains that will try to hunt them down,” says Ryan Schneider. “And speaking of villains, did you catch that final line at the end of the trailer? We’re so happy to announce that Tony Todd (of Candyman fame) will be voicing the symbiote-fueled Venom in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. We’re also delighted to welcome back Yuri Lowenthal and Nadji Jeter, who will reprise their roles as Peter and Miles respectively. We’ve been fortunate to work with so many incredibly talented actors in our Spider-Man games, and Tony has been such a wonderful addition to the cast.”
From the looks of it, we could potentially be seeing Kraven the Hunter as there are two villains speaking in the trailer. It hasn’t been confirmed but we’ll have to wait as the game isn’t going to launch until at the earliest, 2023. It’s a long way away but I’d rather have the studio not crunching rather than getting it earlier.
