The main points of the story

  • Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is one of the hottest games released this year as fans count down the days until the release of the highly anticipated sequel Marvel’s Spider-Man (2018).
  • As the title nears its release, PlayStation has uploaded the launch trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, giving fans an extended look at what’s to come in the story of the two webmasters.
  • The launch trailer confirmed the return of an iconic Spider-Man 2 villain – Sandman. This confirms that the leak that popped up earlier around the boss was not fake.

Big game, with even bigger leaks around it. Just about five days ago, it was spotted in an unsolicited Marvel Spider-Man 2 gameplay video that Sandman would be back to mess up our favorite web swinger’s life. A look at the recently revealed launch trailer uploaded online by PlayStationIt turns out that the aforementioned leak was not a fake.

It’s easy to spot the big chicken around the 19th second in the video, when Sandman tries to make pulp out of both Spider-Man – Peter and Miles. As the scene cuts to Miles confirming that he needs Peter’s help with something, the pair of webmasters are seen struggling against the sandman When he wreaks havoc in New York. It’s worth noting that this is the first time Sandman has appeared in Insomniac’s Spider-Man IP.

However, an interesting little tidbit to consider here: although Marvel’s Spider-Man released in 2018 did not feature Sandman as a villain, it certainly hinted at him to some extent. One of Peter’s collectible “backpacks” includes the “sand vial” as a collectible. Watching the thing, Peter says, “Still not sure if opening this will release the Sandman, but I’m in no rush to find out.”

The latter unequivocally foreshadows Sandman’s existence in Insomniac’s Marvel Spider-Man universe, so it was only a matter of time before the big bad showed up himself. However, Peter and Miles definitely have bigger fish to worry about Flint MarcoGiven how the likes of Kraven the Hunter and Venom—arguably Spider-Man’s biggest arch-hater—go after their heads.

The trailer also highlights Mary Jane, Peter’s partner, who apparently plays an important role in the sequel. Marvel’s first Spider-Man also featured missions that revolved around MJ, but they took more of a stealth approach than anything else, though they were often criticized for that as well.
