The gameplay for PlayStation’s Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 shows the dark and aggressive side of Peter Parker and it may be up to Miles Morales to stop him.

The end of Marvel’s Spider-Man on PlayStation hit on everything comic book fans would have wanted from a video game starring Spidey. The action was fun, the villains were devious, and the quips were fantastic. There were even hints to the future of the franchise. Miles Morales gained Spider-Powers and went on to star in his own game.

At the end of the first game, Norman Osborn is talking to his son, Harry Osborn, in a tube. Attached to him is a black goo that appears to be alive. This leads fans to believe that this was a hint that Venom is coming. That was confirmed in the teaser for Spider-Man 2. What fans didn’t know was that the first look at the gameplay would show Peter Parker in the black symbiote suit.

The novice comic book fan may not know this, but there’s a huge difference between Spider-Man and Spidey in black. When he first got the suit in the comics, he became more aggressive. Eventually, he needed to get rid of it before he did something he’d regret. However, it wasn’t just the symbiote. Peter went back to the black costume a couple of times. To him, this represents his aggressive side. A part of him that shows no mercy. In the released gameplay for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 (which you can see below), it’s evident that the same will be said in the video game sequel.

Black Suit Spidey in Spider-Man 2

Throughout the gameplay for Spider-Man 2, fans witnessed a lot of new moves from Spider-Man. Some of them may be accessible without the black suit. However, there are a few attacks that will likely only work if you’re with the symbiote. They seemed more violent than the others. That’s because of what the symbiote does to Spider-Man. Nevertheless, it isn’t just the attacks that make Spidey more hostile than normal. The concern comes from the things he said and how he said them.

Throughout the video, Peter spoke in a gruff tone. This isn’t him talking like Spider-Cop. There were no jokes. He was full of rage. He was furious at Kraven and his goons attempting to hunt and kill Dr. Curt Connors (a.k.a. the Lizard). He even seemed upset at Connors who he was trying to protect. At the end of the trailer, Ganke asked Miles if this attitude was normal for Peter. In a concerned tone, Miles said that Peter’s never like that.

Using Kraven the Hunter with Black Suit Spider–Man was a great idea. Marvel Comics fans know that the story Kraven’s Last Hunt has a connection to Spidey in that suit. It’s one of Spider-Man’s greatest stories and definitely Kraven’s. Hopefully this doesn’t conclude with the same unfortunate fate as the comic. Sometimes going with the source material isn’t needed. The sensitive nature could be too triggering. Plus, the story is available if people want to know what happened.

Lastly, fans should expect a fight between Miles and Peter. Someone will have to stop Spider-Man before he goes too far. That responsibility will fall to Miles Morales. Maybe Miles will have the suit for a little while and Peter will fight him. Either way, we’ll likely be treated to the best video game fight of the year.
