Footage of a new, live-action advert for Marvel's Spider-Man 2 has been captured from an Australian TV channel. It was spotted on the ESPN network during an ad break for an A-League football game and shows Spider-Man capturing some criminals through the reports of a news network. The advert was first thought to be fake given it doesn't line up with any previous marketing blasts from Sony, but more Australian viewers have now come out to confirm it's real.
In fact, there's another advert that follows a similar structure for Horizon Forbidden West. You can check out the quick Marvel's Spider-Man 2 ad below.
What's important to note is the advert lists Marvel's Spider-Man 2 as a "Spring 2023" release. However, since Australia is part of the southern hemisphere, this translates to anywhere from September to December this year.
While it isn't in-game footage, this is the first marketing beat for Marvel's Spider-Man 2 we've seen from Sony since the PS5 exclusive's announcement in September 2021. As of right now, the game is still on track to be out at the end of this year. Is it your most anticipated PS5 game of 2023? Let us know in the comments below.
The marketing cycle has begun .. looks like some news ( new trailer) might just be around the corner.
Awww yess here we go
Thanks for clarifying before I called BS
What a weird little thing. Great to see the marketing get into, ahem, swing, though!
LIVE FROM THE GRAPEVINE
I saw someone say the footage is from deleted scenes from the Sam Raimi films making it seem like this may be a fake?
N.i.c.e. spiderman 2 is going to be amazing.word up son
Hopefully we get an event in early Feb! So much stuff under wraps that we are yet to hear about and info on first party games has been pretty quiet since GoW: Ragnarok.
i like it , it reminds me of game commercials in the early 2000s . damn , now i’m getting nostalgic 😭
LOL they got me with Spring 2023.....then yeah saw your note about Australia. It makes sense.
my guess would be superbowl trailer.
@n1n0dan @Ward_ting Super Bowl ad maybe, but I still think we'll at least get another strong State of Play in February, if not a legit showcase/direct.
Only time will tell, hopefully I'm not proven wrong. Just a fellow PlayStation gamer eager for any new news just like everyone else here.
@KidBoruto showcase sounds good too cant go wrong with either.
