Speaking during the latest episode of This Week In Marvel, Bill Rosemann, Vice President of Marvel Games, has likened the upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 to Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back in terms of its darker tone.
If Marvel’s Spider-Man was Star Wars, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is kind of our Empire Strikes Back. It gets a little darker. It’s the next big chapter.

Developer Insomniac Games confirmed that the stunning Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 trailer was indeed running in real-time on PS5, while Tony Todd, the voice actor behind Venom, has teased that the sequel will be ‘a massive game.’
