What to Expect Based on Spider-Man 2’s PS5 Ending

If there is still any question whether Insomniac Games is done with creating Spider-Man play, the end of Exclusive to PlayStation 5 Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 explains that the studio has many stories to tell in that universe. Between the post-credits cutscenes and new interviews, it’s clear that Insomniac has big plans for Spider-Man 3and we already have many clues as to what it will focus on.

on recent interview with Friends Every Second podcast, Spider-Man 2 Creative director Bryan Intihar likened the latest game to 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, the beginning of the third box-office-topping phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “I think, if Spider-Man and Miles ours Iron Manand Spider-Man 2 it seems Civil War, where can we reason from there?” Intihar said. “I think it’s going to be pretty epic.”

Insomniac today working in a Wolverine dramaand while Spider-ManThe in-game universe will feature an Avengers Tower and other nods to additional Marvel superheroes, there is no confirmation yet if the two will be set in the same world. We also don’t know if the studio has plans for another one Spider-Man spin-off. In a recent interview with InsideNarrative director Jon Paquette did not rule out making another game with Venom if fans show they want that.

But we have an idea of ​​what Spider-Man 3 likely tackle based only on the major red flag at the end of Spider-Man 2. Apparently they’re giant spoilers, so if you haven’t beaten the game yet and don’t want to know what happens, go back now. If not, let’s explore in a moment.

A spoiler warning is displayed.

Therefore Spider-Man 2 ends with Peter Parker and Miles Morales defeating Venom and sending the symbiote’s host, Harry Osborne, into a coma. His father, Norman Osborne, lost it at this point. Unable to fathom that the alien life form he forced upon his son to cure his Oshtoran Syndrome must be defeated at all costs before it takes over the world, the senior Osborne blames the Spider-Men for the new the condition of his son.

At this point you’re probably wondering if Osborne will finally go Green Goblin and attempt his (misguided) revenge on the web-crawlers. No need to speculate, though! Sitting in Harry’s room before the credits started, Osborne called his lab and told his staff to, “Prepare the G-Serum.” I figured it was his way of saying, “inject the goblin juice directly into my veins.”

That’s the first big clue as to where Spider-Man 3 goes: a showdown between Peter, Miles, and the Green Goblin. The second one comes right after the first batch of credits. Osborne is seen walking down the hallway of a high-security prison to the cell of Otto Octavius, Peter’s teacher in the first game who was driven to become the super villain Dr. Octopus because of Osborne’s greed, stubbornness, and ambition. Osborne wants to know Spider-Man’s true identity and Octavius ​​knows it. The former asked the latter what he had written in his notebook. “The last chapter,” answered the doctor.

Given Octavius’ role in forming the Sinister Six in the first place Spider-Man game, it seems like a good bet that all the old supervillains will be back to play Spider-Man 3. Maybe some new superheroes too. Spider-Man 2The final stinger shows Miles and his mother greeting his new girlfriend at their apartment for dinner. The new beau brings his daughter, Cindy, who is Silk, another New Yorker with spider powers. We don’t know how Insomniac will change his backstory, but it’s likely that he’ll fight alongside Peter and Miles in Spider-Man 3or possibly even before that in some future DLC, expansion, or spin-off.

Spider-Man 2 Carnage is also invited to the end of the Flame side-missions, with Cletus Kasady escaping with a sample of the symbiote, while frenemy Yuri Watanabe, now the vigilante Wraith, will also appear at some point. Plus the Black Cat is still in Paris. With these new heroes and villains rosters began to form in full Spider-Man 2The analogy with Intihar’s Avengers is starting to make a little more sense. Spider-Man 3 It might not end in a massive Infinity War, but the decks are definitely stacked on either side for a bigger confrontation than we’ve seen in any of the games so far. Hopefully we won’t have to wait until the PlayStation 6 arrives to see it.
