“Spidey’s Evolution: Miles Swings into the Spotlight as Peter Considers Hanging Up the Suit”

In a web of changes, the developers behind the PlayStation 5 sensation, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, have dropped a bombshell. Brace yourselves, true believers! Miles Morales has swung into the spotlight, and Peter Parker might be eyeing his web-shooters with retirement in mind.

Warning: Spider-Man 2 spoilers ahead.

Gizmodo caught up with Insomniac’s narrative director, Ben Arfmann, and advanced writer, Brittney Morris, to untangle the enigmatic ending of Spider-Man 2, where Peter passes the proverbial torch to Miles. Here’s a glimpse of their conversation:

Peter: “Pete. I got this. All of it. Go be Peter Parker for a while.” Peter: “Are you sure? It’s a big city.” Miles: “I can handle it. As long as I can still call you for advice.” Peter: “You don’t need it.”

Gizmodo wasted no time inquiring about this changing of the spider guard, asking Arfmann and Morris if they always intended for Miles to be the new “main” Spider-Man.

Morris responded: “It always felt very natural, and I think we all collectively thought it would happen. To me, it shows a great deal of evolution from Miles; at the beginning of the game, we see him struggling to figure out what he wants to do with his life. By the end, we had Miles carrying the burden of saving the city, and also carrying Pete when Pete wasn’t strong enough to carry himself at various points.

“That’s what’s been so cool about writing a story about two Spider-Men: they’re both strong, and one of them can be strong when the other is not. By the end, Miles is more confident and he’s like, ‘Yeah, I got this. How much worse can things get after what we just went through?'”With this news, Spider-fans are spinning their own theories about what the future holds for Miles. The rumor mill is buzzing with talk of another Miles Morales spin-off, a potential Venom spin-off, and even the possibility of Peter Parker meeting his maker in Spider-Man 3. Talk about a sticky situation!


So, will Peter’s fate be sealed, or will he emerge from retirement to save the day once more? As IGN’s Jesse Schedeen speculates, “This game provides plenty of clues as to what that disaster might involve.”

For now, folks, it’s all web-slinging speculation. We’ll have to wait patiently in the spider’s web to see what Insomniac has in store for us.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has soared to PlayStation’s fastest-selling game ever over a 24-hour period, with 2.5 million copies sold in a day. Swing by IGN for a list of Spider-Man 2’s best skills and all the slick suits in the game.

In our Spider-Man 2 review, we quipped, “As a sequel in a spectacular series, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is both blessed and cursed… Insomniac refines a successful formula of combat and web-swinging without revolutionizing either in major ways, making them comfy and familiar with just enough new tweaks and abilities to elevate them to fun new heights. The part that feels like it actually needed a radical rethinking is the open world of New York City, which has been made bigger but not better, with an exhausting checklist of mostly repetitious side activities.”

Stay web-tuned, and let’s see if Miles can carry the spidey torch high above the city’s skyline!
