6 Characters I Want to See in the Spider-Man 2 Video Game

This is a great time to be a Spider-Man fan. Not only does the new film Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse come out this week, but last week we got our first big look at the upcoming Spider-Man 2 video game for the Playstation 5. I’m going to the first showing of the movie this week, and you best believe I’ll be picking up that game day one! Everything’s coming up Spider-Man!

Next week, I’ll do a review of Across the Spider-Verse here in this List of Six space. So this week, I’ve decided to whip together a quick list for the Spider-Man 2 video game. Who do I want to see appear in the game? What cameos and character appearances? We already know that Kraven the Hunter and Venom will be the major villains, but what about minor villains? What about some superhero allies? Or some civilian friends?

Join me after the jump for a couple characters I hope to see in this surely awesome video game.

Two Great Bug-Themed Superhero Movie Trailers!

There have been a whole bunch of new trailers released over the past few days, possibly to get out in front of the upcoming Super Mario Bros. Movie. That’s great news for me, because I love trailers! And here come two great ones!

First up is the new trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. We get a bigger look at the worlds, we get our first look at the Spot, and we get some good looking conflict.

Looks great to me! There seems to be a lot going on, perhaps too much, based on this trailer. But I’m confident they’ll put it all together. Looks like Miles wants to save his father at the cost of saving the multiverse, and Miguel doesn’t want that to happen. Makes sense. But the animation looks beautiful. The Spot looks fun. The kajillion Spider characters are a hoot. We get our first look at Scarlet Spider!

This movie doesn’t need trailers. It’s going to be fire no matter what. Can’t wait! Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse comes to theaters on June 2.

Next up is the first trailer for Blue Beetle, our first look at this movie, and I think it looks good. We get a lot of flavor and character in this Blue Beetle trailer, and I like what I see.

I’ll admit, this trailer does seem to hit all the familiar beats of a superhero origin story. But the charm outweighs the tropes for me. Xolo Maridueña looks like he’s having fun as Jaime Reyes, and I love the family feel. George Lopez looks especially fun. And I think the Blue Beetle effects look really good. Blue Beetle looks like a fun movie. Can it overcome the DC curse that killed Black Adam and Shazam 2? We’ll find out. I think it looks good.

Blue Beetle comes to theaters on Aug. 18.


Across the Spider-Verse in LEGO!

Some genius at LegoMe_TheOG have animated the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse trailer in LEGO. I love this sort of thing! Lego is great, stop motion animation is great, and the internet can produce some great things.

I bet it was fun drawing or building all those alternate Spider-People in LEGO. I love how they run. This looks great, and I can’t wait to get another Across the Spider-Verse so this dude can do this again!


Let’s Go Across the Spider-Verse!

This trailer came out a couple of days ago, but I’ve been having an off week. Just not feeling it. But hey, at least this trailer is pretty cool. We get a big, fun look at a Spider-Verse full of Spider-People! That counts for a lot.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is a hugely anticipated movie, by me and pretty much everybody else. Can it live up to the excitement of the first film? You’re damn right it can, and I really hope it does! I want a sequel that’s bigger and better! I know it can be done! We don’t have much on the story yet, or any really stand out new characters — and no sign of the Spot. But i know this one is gonna be a banger!

Across the Spider-Verse comes out in June.


The Spot is the Villain in Across the Spider-Verse!

I am a huge fan of the super villain The Spot from Spider-Man’s Rogues Gallery. From his cool powers to his underdog nature to his awesome episode of the Spider-Man cartoon from the 1990s, I just did The Spot. He never gets much respect, but hot damn, he’s just been revealed as the villain in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse coming out later this year!

Look at him, looking all funky!

All we have so far is this promotional image, which looks great. The Spot is going to be voiced by Jason Schwartzman, so that’s cool too. And we learned of a couple other new characters who are going to show up. I’m not going to spoil those, because spoiling The Spot is good enough for me.

Holy cow, you guys, this may lead to me getting to own a really awesome Spot action figure! Or a Spot LEGO set! Across the Spider-Verse is going to be huge and now it’s The Spot’s time to shine!
