Marvel dares to compare PS5’s Spider-Man 2 to your favorite Star Wars movie

During its PlayStation 5 showcase at the start of the month, Sony confirmed that a sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man is developing at Insomniac Games. That there’s a sequel on the way is a few surprises – the primary game was well-received by critics and fans alike and went on to become one of the best-selling games for PlayStation 4. In other words, excitement is already high for this sequel, but now Marvel has teased the sport in a way that will only make players even more excited.

Stopping by the in the week in Marvel podcast, Marvel Games’ Bill Rosemann had some interesting things to mention about Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. “I would say if the primary Spider-Man game were Star Wars, Spider-Man 2 is quite our Empire,” Rosemann said. “It gets a touch darker.”

Rosemann is, of course, about The Empire Strikes Back, the second film within the original Star Wars trilogy and, therefore, the fifth film within the saga chronologically. The Empire Strikes Back is widely regarded as one among the simplest – if not the simplest – Star Wars movies, not only due to its famous twist but also because The Empire Strikes Back is darker and more serious than the movie that preceded it.

Indeed, the trailer we saw for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 suggests the sport is taking a darker turn than the first. Therein the trailer, we see Peter Parker and Miles Morales fighting crime side-by-side as an unseen narrator – widely alleged to be Kraven Orion – asks if there’s anyone who might be his equal. Venom even makes a surprise appearance toward the top of the trailer, so it seems that both of our Spider-Men will have their hands full during this game.

Unfortunately, we’ve got quite the wait before us before we get to play. With the reveal of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 came the news that the sport won’t be released until 2023, so we’ve got much time to think about the statement Rosemann made during this podcast.
