Marvel's Spider-Man 2 has been likened to Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in a new interview that reveals the sequel will be darker than the original PlayStation 4 title. Speaking on the This Week in Marvel podcast, creative vice president Bill Rosemann touched on how the web-slinging sequel compares to the first title. "If the first Spider-Man game was Star Wars, Spider-Man 2 is kind of our Empire. It gets a little darker."
All we have to go on right now is the reveal trailer debuted during the PlayStation Showcase earlier this month, but with Venom already confirmed to be appearing, it seems Marvel's Spider-Man 2 has a pretty good chance of living up to that claim. Rosemann then turns his attention to Marvel's Wolverine, which is said to be releasing after Marvel's Spider-Man 2. "We will eventually reveal when Wolverine is aimed to launch. For more, go back and study those trailers — they are packed with details and easter eggs."
Other confirmed information for Marvel's Spider-Man 2 includes Candyman actor Tony Todd voicing Venom and that the announcement trailer was running in real time on PS5.
