Spider-Man 2’s First Look at Sandman
PlayStation released a new trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, which revealed the first look and confirmation for Sandman’s appearance in the upcoming PS5 video game.
Peter Parker and Miles Morales are seen swinging in the middle of a huge sandstorm as they take on the classic Spider-Man antagonist together.
This time, fans will see a character named William Baker, who is said to have made an attempt at robbing F.E.A.S.T. before May Parker foils his plan.
Although this may still be the same Sandman fans are familiar with, as, in the comics, Flint Marko was only an alias created by Baker to conceal his identity from his imprisoned father.
With Peter not having gotten the Venom symbiote suit yet during these scenes, it seems most likely that he and Miles will face Sandman earlier in the game, although there’s no confirmation of where or how he comes into play.
The full trailer can be seen below:
How Many More Villains Will Be in Spider-Man 2?
Spider-Man 2 is already confirmed to add plenty more names to that extensive list, although fans are still waiting to find out about what surprises Insomniac Games has in store for this sequel.
On top of Kraven and Venom, fans have seen a great deal of footage featuring this universe’s take on the Lizard, who is set to rampage across NYC as Peter and Miles attempt to weather that storm.
And, although the upcoming battle with Venom is sure to be the crown jewel of this game’s story, there will be countless hours of thrills to experience on the villain front before that challenge presents itself.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will be available for the PlayStation 5 on Friday, October 20.
