Considering shared universes are all the rage these days, many fans were left to wonder whether a meeting between Spider-Man and Wolverine might be possible in the Insomniac-Verse. Well, fear not, true believers, as Marvel's Spider-Man 2 director Brian Intihar has officially set the record straight.
In an interview with Kinda Funny, host Greg Miller asked Intihar whether the upcoming Wolverine game and Marvel's Spider-Man series take place in the same universe. Intihar replied, "They're all 1048." 1048 refers to a particular iteration of the Marvel universe, confirming they exist in the same continuity.
When asked why Wolverine didn't appear or wasn't referenced in Marvel's Spider-Man 2 (or lend a hand during the calamity that befell New York City), Intihar explained that:
"There was a decision not to do it… I think for us, we wanted to let that team cook, and who knows what the future holds, but right now, let's let them do their thing."
