Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will see Peter and Miles come up against a new threat in Venom, with a fan drawing how their fight might play out.
A fan-made concept poster for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 depicts a brutal confrontation between webhead Peter Parker and the title’s main antagonist, Venom. Although fans were already introduced to Insomniac’s version of Peter Parker’s Spider-Man and his white-spidered Advanced Suit redesign in the 2018 game, a trailer for the upcoming sequel showed a glimpse of a more traditional design for Venom.
Insomniac’s take on the Spider-Man mythos has been highly praised, and many consider 2018 Marvel’s Spiderman and 2020s Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales the best Spider-Man games to date. The series has also been hugely successful as Sony announced that it has sold over 33 million copies worldwide as of May 2022. Marvel’s Spiderman offered a more mature view of Peter Parker as he navigates life as a young adult, rather than the more common portrayals of him as a high school student, resulting in a title that ventured into darker territory . Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will be darker than the first game, according to Marvel, with the arrival of Venom posing a new threat to Peter and Miles.
Due to these darker themes, Redditor The_Living_Paradox’s poster concept for the upcoming sequel isn’t out of place for the series. The fan poster features Venom hovering over a battered Peter Parker, trapped in a black web with the symbiote’s bloody claws approaching to kill him. Venom has always been one of Spider-Man’s darkest antagonists, and many fans can’t wait to see how Insomniac chooses to portray the alien costume saga in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
Post-credits in both Marvel’s Spiderman games have teased Venom, and its origins seem to draw inspiration from Brian Bendis and Mark Bagley Ultimate Spider-Man comics, which saw it used as part of an Oscorp experiment to cure diseases such as cancer. In this case, the experiment is conducted on Peter’s best friend, Harry Osborn, who had been diagnosed with the same terminal illness that his mother succumbed to. It remains to be seen if Harry will become Venom, causing an emotional arc that would see Peter having to defeat his best friend, or if his experience will lead to the symbiote breaking free and eventually taking on Eddie Brock as a host much like the comics. . Eddie Brock had been teased in the world-building backpacks of Marvel’s Spiderman, so it’s not outside the realm of possibility that he might appear in the sequel. The cast of a candy manTony Todd as the voice of Venom leaves fans even further in the dark as to who Insomniac chose for the symbiote’s alter ego.
Fans are eagerly awaiting more news on the upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man 2which is currently slated to release exclusively on PlayStation 5 in 2023. Insomniac Games is also working on Marvel’s Wolverines, with the developer’s universe of Marvel titles ever-expanding. Little is known about the two projects, but more concrete details should arrive closer to their respective launch windows.
