I hope they make the dynamic between Eddie and Peter good. Assuming Eddie is Venom and they're not making Harry Venom based on the ending to the first game. Either way it should be a tragic falling out between two good friends, that ultimately boils down to being Peter's fault. I still love how the Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon did it. Just perfect.

Too early to know for sure but I'm guessing the goal was to make it seem like Harry 's gonna be Venom to make Eddie's appearance more interesting/surprising.  ^_^

The voice over guy has to be Kraven, yes? 


That’s who I’m thinking. Also by then the Kraven movie would be out in theatres or video to coincide. Plus a BIG YES on Spectacular Spider-Man. Still the best spider-man cartoon and best Spidey voice work from Keaton

Not that they couldn’t establish him during the game, but is there any reference to Eddie aside from a line from Miles and maybe a passing comment from Peter? If they’re not turning Harry into Venom after the original game, that would be weird.

Well if Venom turns heal, maybe Harry could be that wild card to show up and save the day as Anti-Venom or he becomes Carnage

I don't think Harry necessarily has to be Venom based on the ending of the first game. The Venom symbiote could be being used to treat Harry and whatever is making him sick, but it gets out, attaches to Peter, then finds Eddie after, yadda yadda. In the Ultimate Marvel comics the symbiote wasn't an alien, but a cure for cancer that Peter and Eddie's parents were working on before they died, if I remember correctly, so they could be doing something similar to that here. Then again maybe they will make Harry Venom as a curveball just because we all know the whole symbiote and Venom origin story so well by now, and they want to change things up. Surely though by the third game they'll have Norman become Green Goblin, unless of course they do that here as a final boss surprise like they did with Dock Ock, and then have Harry take over as Green Goblin II in Spider-Man 3. Making Norman become the Green Goblin in the third act might be a bit too similar to how the first game was structured though, so maybe the story of the third game will be dealing with Norman as Green Goblin, defeating him, Harry takes up the mantle, improves on the tech, and becomes Green Goblin II, or even Hobgoblin like he was in the Ultimate universe, although in that series of comics both Goblins were actually creatures, ala Hulk, not just dudes in suits with gliders; they could explain it that Harry's sickness and whatever they use to try and cure him turns him into the Goblin eventually, similar in the Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie (although the less said about that trash fire movie the better).

2023, YO!

 

Insomniac's really loving these Marvel games. Considering how efficient they are, I hope R&C is still in the works. And whatever they're cooking that utilizes VR.

 

Is it weird that I saw their lineup in this showcase and was immediately worried about crunch and burnout? :/

how many different teams does insomniac have? 

 

I thought they had:

- Spider-man

- Spider-man Miles Morales (possibly working together on spiderman 2)

- Ratchet and Clank

 

If they have another team working on Wolverine then maybe they are avoiding crunch

Getting burned out on cape shit, but surprisingly looking forward to this and Wolverine.  I kinda feel like other than comics video games have the most potential for being a medium that does the superhero genre justice, and that potential hasn't been fully realized...yet.

Spider-Man 2 will be a "darker" Empire Strikes Back-style sequel (Eurogamer)

Quote

 

Marvel has described Insomniac's upcoming Spider-Man 2 as a "darker" follow-up to the original game.

 

Speaking on the latest This Week In Marvel podcast, the comics maker's creative vice president Bill Rosemann briefly discussed Insomniac's current slate of projects.

 

"If the first Spider-Man game was Star Wars, Spider-Man 2 is kind of our Empire," Rosemann said. "It gets a little darker."
