Venom: Lethal Protector: Costume Limits May Be Running Into Insomniac Games!

The studio, which was hit by a ransomware attack, has the potential to continue the tradition started with Marvel’s Spider-Man games.


Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man series began in 2018 (and shortly after, the studio was acquired by Sony Interactive Entertainment). The studio later released Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and the second main episode. Each of these episodes gave players some costume options, and they can expect a Venom game later on, as leaked files have revealed the studio’s schedule for the next 7-8 years.

Among the games that have been announced is Venom: Lethal Protector (the name of which will surely be changed), but it’s fair to wonder how they’ll handle the customization options for our costume, because while Peter Parker and Miles Morales do indeed dress up as spiders, Venom does not. A workaround can be found in the comics. The symbiote changes its appearance depending on who it is attached to. The link to Frank Castle (Punisher) was modified accordingly in Marvel’s What If… comics. Venom Hulk and Venom Wolverine are also good examples of their appearance changing.

The other option has also been seen in previous Spider-Man games. Insomniac Games has also designed custom costumes for Peter Parker and Miles Morales, and while they don’t always come up with what we might call the right one, the studio can work with fans to come up with creative solutions, so it could be a competition of sorts, and anyone who submits a great design to the developers under PlayStation Studios could even make the character that appears on Sony’s console look like the winner’s idea.

So there’s no need to worry that Venom’s character (which is relatively simple by default, considering what he looks like!) will be limited visually. They need to find the right inspiration and materials, and create a design that is not too alien. If all this is achieved, the studio can confidently continue the costume tradition of the previous three games.
