Marvel’s Spider-Man 2: Which Star Wars Film Does It Resemble With Its Darker Tone?

Bill Rosemann, Marvel Games’ vice president, answered this question, and we’re not sure if his choice is what you’d think.


Rosemann, a Disney employee (because let’s be honest: “the house of mouse” owns Marvel, too), talked about Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 on the most recent This Week in Marvel podcast. “There are multiple foes [in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. I can say the story very much continues and picks up from Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. It’s the next big chapter. There are a lot of treats, a lot of characters that were in the first two games that you’ll see here.

So, yeah. It’s Miles; it’s Peter, it’s Venom, it’s a mysterious voice. It’s everything you love, but more. And I would say if the first Spider-Man was Star Wars, Spider-Man 2 is kind of our Empire [Strikes Back]. It’s a little darker,” Rosemann said. So the first Marvel’s Spider-Man is Star Wars IV, with the proper sequel (as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales was “one point five”) being compared to Star Wars V. It makes sense. If they can nail the darker tone, the result could be a memorable experience for PlayStation 5 owners.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Marvel’s Wolverine were revealed during Sony’s PlayStation Showcase three weeks ago. Insomniac Games are developing both titles, and the former is set to arrive around 2023, and by that point, the PlayStation 4 might no longer be manufactured. It’s somewhat weird to see Sony announce two projects from the same studio, especially how the first is about two years away from launch.

Let’s hope Sony and Disney don’t go over the top with Spidey: Star Wars jumped the shark with the 7th-9th films. (Then again, George Lucas didn’t have much of a word in them.)
