Detailsthey about Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, the sequel to Insomniac Games’ websling First revealed during the September PlayStation Showcase, are still rare. However, Marvel Entertainment’s Creative Vice President Bill Rosemann gave us a juicy bite to eat: The superhero game will look like Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
In the Last episode podcast This week in Marvel, Rosemann sat down with hosts Lorraine Cink and Ryan “Agent M” Penagos to briefly discuss Insomniac Games’ two developing projects: Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Marvel’s Wolverine. Speaking of the webhead, Rosemann compared Spider-man 2 To The Empire Strikes Back, saying that the sequel to 2018 Marvel’s Spider-Man will be a “darker” experience than the original.
“I can say that the story goes on and on and on Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales“Rosemann said.” I don’t want to reveal too much, but this is the next big chapter. There are a lot of threads, a lot of characters that were in the first two games that you’ll see. [again] here. So yeah, it’s Miles, it’s Peter, it’s Venom, it’s a mysterious voice. It’s everything you love but more. And I would say that if the first Spider Man the game was Star wars, Spider-man 2 is a bit our Empire [Strikes Back]. It’s a little darker.
Marvel’s Spider-Man absolutely not a walk in the park, especially later in the game when the shit really goes down. Always, Spider Man hit a slightly lighter tone than last year Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales expansion.

But watching the reveal trailer multiple times, it’s pretty obvious that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will be more gritty than previous entries, not least due to the appearance of Eddie Brock and Venom. I mean, just look at this foggy New York street that our webslingers are fighting on. If it’s okay, then I don’t know what it is.
Rosemann also gave us an update not really an update on Insomniac’s other game, Marvel’s Wolverine. He said the team will “finally reveal” their target release date and fans should hit their mark. Trailer again.
“Yes, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, as the trailer says, [releases in] 2023, âsaid Rosemann. “We will eventually reveal when [Marvelâs] Wolverine aims to launch. I would say, for more, man, go back and study these trailers. They are excited. They are filled with little details and Easter eggs. Follow Insomniac Games on Twitter. Follow PlayStation, follow Marvel Games. We will post more information when we can and when it is ready.
While there is no release date or confirmed window for Marvel’s Wolverine for now we at least know that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 should launch on PlayStation 5 sometime in 2023. In the meantime, you can check out Marvel’s Avengers on Xbox Game Pass, corn don’t expect Spider-Man to join this game’s roster soon.
