If you missed the Comic Con trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, we’ve got it here for you

If you’re a Spidey fan, you’ve no doubt seen it already, but just in case you haven’t here’s the latest look at Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

Spider-Men… and some kinda Venom

So who exactly is Venom in next week’s Marvel’s Spider-Man 2? Developer Insomniac has been shockingly mum on the game’s biggest mystery, and it sure does look like the latest trailer for the open-world actioner is a huge misdirection.

While the video is loaded with cool stuff, including a monstrous Sandman who just looks flat-out incredible, but the Venom stuff is the highlight yet again. Not only is this a purely villainous version of the character, which hasn’t been seen in a while, but wow does he look phenomenal. Also, from the direction of this new video, he’s apparently Peter Parker.

So does Pete get fully absorbed into the symbiote in the game? Or, and we certainly think this is more likely, is this just a big twist, and the real Venom host is still under wraps. But assuming that’s true, who is it? Could it be the just awakened Harry Osborn? Or, on a related note, maybe it’s a pre-Goblin Norman Osborn (which could actually lead into Green Goblin in a part 3).

Or, and stay with us here, maybe it’s the creature alone, at a point where Pete’s rid himself of it. Wandering around NYC with no host, jilted from its chosen bond, the symbiote might be lashing out in a big way. And maybe, just maybe, that could lead it to a certain chapel and a desperate man at the end of his rope…

Then again, it could be none of that. We have no idea, and are just as in the dark as anybody else. The only way to find out, is to dive into the game itself on October 20th, exclusively on the PS5.
