That Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is happening hasn’t been much of a secret. Not only does it make perfect sense for Insomniac Games to keep making amazing Spider-Man titles, but Miles Morales actor Nadji Jeter tweeted a picture of himself in mocap gear earlier this year before deleting the tweet.
However, Sony and the development team made its existence official during the latest PlayStation Showcase. The reveal trailer, which can be seen above, sees Miles Morales and Peter Parker teaming up to take on Venom. And while the trailer is narrated by someone who sounds eerily like Kraven the Hunter, his inclusion in the game hasn’t yet been confirmed.
We do know that Tony Todd of Candyman fame will be playing the role of Venom, a perfect fit already. Nadji Jeter will return as Miles and Yuri Lowenthal will return as Peter. Spider-Man 2 will release for PS5 in 2023.
In other Insomniac news, the company revealed that it’s also working on Marvel’s Wolverine. A short cinematic trailer for the game was shown alongside the trailer for Spider-Man 2, but even less is known about the project. You can see the trailer here.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales launched with the PlayStation 5, and it’s a fantastic follow-up to 2018’s Spider-Man. We said in our review that it’s a “blast” to play and that “it’s also close to being perfect when it comes to representation.”
