Spider-Man’s Mile Morales Cameo Explained by Insomniac
The scene “means a lot” according to the developer.
At the end of Insomniac’s gameplay trailer for Spider-Man, we got a glimpse at a special someone taking pictures of the hero. This is Miles Morales, a significant character who began with the Ultimate universe and would eventually become Spider-Man at some point.
So what does his appearance in the Insomniac’s Spider-Man mean? According to community director James Stevenson in conversation with VG247, “That scene – it was a lot of fun that we did a post-credit scene, it was very Marvel.” He also noted that the scene “means a lot.”
Though based off of Marvel’s famous characters, Insomniac’s Spider-Man universe is self-contained and doesn’t have any connection to other franchises (like the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming film). It’s possible that Miles’ interaction with Spider-Man is completely different here.
Spider-Man is currently in development for PS4 and PS4 Pro. It will release next year though a more specific date hasn’t been provided. Thoughts on the game so far? Let us know below.
