Marvel's Spider-Man 2 PS5 PlayStation

Uh oh, it must be nearly time for the release of another Insomniac game, as we have another overblown technical conundrum to unpack. However, it's not the puddles the overly-zealous PlayStation faithful are concerned about this time. Instead, fans, perhaps a little too eager for Marvel's Spider-Man 2's 20th October release date, have convinced themselves that something is amiss with MJ's face.

The recent Comic-Con trailer is what seems to have gotten a vocal minority fired up, necessitating comment from Insomniac's director of community and marketing, James Stevenson. Stevenson cleared things up on Twitter, confirming, "Nope same face model, same actress".

On Reddit, fans put MJ's debatably altered vibe down to the haircut and wardrobe change or theorised that perhaps the power of the game's new lighting engine is causing people to perceive the character differently.

To be fair to those still unconvinced, we did recently learn that Insomniac wasn't entirely honest with its pre-launch Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart PS5 SSD claims, so we suppose anything is possible. Still, we're willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, especially as Stevenson reiterated the sentiment multiple times.

What do you think, is this MJ our MJ? Or has the no-nonsense reporter been body-snatched, suffering the same fate as OG Pete? Compare and contrast in the comments section below.
