Even though Spider-Man always saves the day, with great comes great responsibility, which ultimately comes with a cost.

Peter might have saved New York City at the end of Marvel’s Spider-Man, yet he lost his beloved Aunt May before it was all said and done . A rather dark and sad ending for our hero, one that pulled at the heartstrings of this writer.

Even with Miles around, don’t expect things to lighten up for our hero going into Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 on the PS5. If the trailer didn’t hint at it, then heed the words of Marvel Games Creative Vice President Bill Rosemann. Rougher roads are ahead for Peter and his amazing friends.

Bill was guest on the ‘This Week in Marvel‘ podcast comparing the difference between the OG MSM to the upcoming 2023 sequel. He compared it to another famous Disney franchise: Star Wars.

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

If you watched the official Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 reveal trailer from the PlayStation Showcase that now has over 12 million views, Venom will definitely bring the darkness to the overall story and we can’t freagin’ wait to see what Insomniac gives all of us Spidey-fans.
