Insomniac’s Marvel Universe continues with Spider-Man 2, Wolverine

A huge, double-barreled announcement took place during Sony’s PlayStation Spotlight yesterday. with both Spider-Man 2… and Wolverine.

Running wild

How incredible is Insomniac? The studio had been held in high regard for a while, but absolutely exploded with the launch of the fantastic Marvel’s Spider-Man for the PS4. Well now they’re not only back, but expanding their own version of the Marvel Universe.

That’s right, it seems as though this is a cohesive Marvel Video Game Universe, though I don’t believe it’s been called that anywhere… yet. Anyway, the series of announcements included not just Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, but also the surprise reveal of Wolverine.

But before we get to that, Spidey 2 looks absolutely packed. Not only will the game include Peter Parker, but Miles Morales as well, and it kinda/sorta seems like we’re going to get a Batman and Robin (or maybe Nightwing) dynamic. As a huge fan of the original title, I couldn’t like that more.

Of course, that wasn’t all that we saw, as the trailer is loaded up with villain teases, and has a certain black-clad symbiotic alien as well. Did I mention that he’s voiced by Tony Todd? Yep.

Spider-Man 2 hits exclusively for the PS5 in 2023.

The best there is

From out of nowhere, Insomniac also took the wraps off of a new game starring the savage X-Man, Wolverine. While there was even less to the Wolverine teaser than what we just saw of Spidey 2, it’s still pretty slick.

Yeah, not a ton there to go off of, but from it we might be able to pull a few things. There’s no ‘X-Men’ anything in there, for starters. Could it be that the Wolverine game might star a Canucklehead who’s not yet a member of the team?

There’s also a decent amount of blood on Logan’s knuckles. So, as Insomniac even says, this game should be a good deal different in tone than their Spider-Man titles. It’s also likely a good ways off, unfortunately. The developer says that it’s early in the development cycle, so figure a few years before we actually get to step into Logan’s cowboy boots.
