Spider-Man 2: Everything We Know About The Webslinger’s Next Adventure!

After the critical and commercial success of Marvel's Spider-Man and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, it was inevitable that Marvel's Spider-Man 2 would be released. As a result, it wasn't a complete surprise when the announcement was made at the PlayStation showcase in September 2021.

The trailer's contents, on the other hand, were a little surprising, particularly the release date and the villains who will appear in this title. Our Spider-Man, Peter and Miles, is back in action, and we couldn't be more excited.

This page contains all of the information we currently know about Marvel's Spider-Man 2, including the release date, story, gameplay, and potential villains.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 release date

The release date for Marvel's Spider-Man 2 isn't set in stone, but the studio has provided a release window: 2023. If Marvel's Spider-Man 2 follows the same release schedule as the original Spider-Man, it will be released sometime in September, which is not too far away. That's quite a distance away.

According to the Marvel website, it appears as though Marvel's Spider-Man 2 will bypass the PlayStation 4 and instead launch on the PlayStation 5.

Spider-Man 2 plot

Even though Marvel's Spider-Man 2 teaser trailer didn't provide us with much information, we do know that two major villains will appear in the game: Venom and Kraven the Hunter, who will be played by Tom Holland. In the Spider-Man universe, Venom is one of the most well-known villains who digs deep into Peter's life and causes havoc, so I expect there to be significant trauma involved in this film. Tony Todd, who is best known for his role as the original Candyman, will play Venom in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming.

There's also Kraven the Hunter, who may not be as well known if you haven't read the comics or played other Spider-Man games as the other characters. Overall, Kraven simply wants to ice Spider-Man in order to establish himself as the greatest hunter on the planet. His motivations are a mystery, and the few times I've encountered him have been in a more amusing and gimmicky form of the character. In the teaser trailer for Marvel's Spider-Man 2, he does, however, come across as quite intense. I'm hoping that we'll get to see a more brutal portrayal of Kraven the Hunter in this installment.

There is one villain who was absent from the film, and that is Harry Osborn. It is possible that if you have played through the first Spider-Man, you have seen the very last cutscene, in which Harry is suspended in a water tank by his father, most likely because he is about to transform into the Green Goblin.

In addition, we know that Yuri Lowenthal and Nadji Jeter will reprise their roles as Peter Parker and Miles Morales, respectively, in the upcoming film adaptation. Due to a large number of major villains in Marvel's Spider-Man 2, both of these Spider-Men will have their work cut out for them in the upcoming sequel.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 will be a dark story, according to Bill Rosemann, Marvel's Creative Vice President. “If the first Spider-Man game was Star Wars [A New Hope], Spider-Man 2 is kind of like our Empire [Strikes Back], says he on the This Week in Marvel Podcast. “It starts to get a little darker.”

The author of Wings of Fury (the prequel novel to Spider-Man: Miles Morales), Brittney M. Morris, has recently joined Insomniac Games' writing staff. This is an exciting development for fans of the series. Morris revealed on Twitter that the first project she'll be working on will be, of course, Marvel's Spider-Man 2, which will be released this summer. We're looking forward to seeing how her presence affects the story, especially since Wings of Fury was a critically acclaimed debut novel.

Spider-Man 2 gameplay

It would be fantastic if Marvel's Spider-Man 2 was a co-op game in which you could play as the other Spider-Man alongside a friend. However, it's more likely that it will remain a single-player experience, with us switching between the two at various points throughout the game.

As a fan of Peter Parker's abilities, I'm hoping that Insomniac Games improves them, especially because they seem a little tame when compared to Miles' wild powers, which include the ability to electrify opponents and turn invisible.

Once again, it appears as though the game will take place in New York City, which is a little disappointing. The setting has already been explored extensively in the original game and the Miles Morales spin-off. I'm hoping they brought something new to the city or that they surprised us with a trip somewhere else.
