Eagle-eyed Spider-Man fans have noticed a cameo from Insomniac’s Spider-Man in the newly released trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
In an early scene where Miles Morales and Gwen Stacey visit a dimension with seemingly dozens of Spider-Mans, a Spider-Man wearing the original suit from Insomniac’s PS4 game can be spotted.
It’s unclear if this Spider-Man will play a larger part in the film or will simply be a cameo.
The same suit appeared briefly in the first film, and also made an appearance in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is the sequel to the hugely popular animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
The film, starring Shameik Moore and Hailee Steinfeld, is planned for release in cinemas in June 2023.
The official Insomniac Twitter account replied to a thread in which fans were speculating about why the game hadn’t received a second trailer since it was originally announced.
After some expressed concern that the game wouldn’t make its planned 2023 release, Insomniac stepped in to assuage their fears.
“Don’t [worry],” it said. “We’re making good progress and it’s slated for 2023. Showing games takes time, effort, resources and coordination.”
Insomniac Games is also working on a Wolverine game for PS5. According to the studio, the game will be a standalone title directed by Brian Horton and Cameron Christian, who were the creative leads on Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
“Even though Marvel’s Wolverine is very early in development, from what I’ve seen of its emotional narrative and cutting-edge gameplay, the team is already creating something truly special,” said Insomniac’s head of franchise strategy Ryan Schneider.
