PlayStation released a new trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, revealing the first appearance of Sandman in this exclusive PS5 game which will be released in the near future. In the trailer, Peter Parker and Miles Morales are seen swinging in the middle of a sandstorm as they team up against the classic Spider-Man villain, Sandman. In this universe, it is not Flint Marko who turns into Sandman as happened in the films Spider-Man 3 and Spider-Man: No Way Home.
This time, fans will see a character named William Baker, who reportedly tried to rob FEAST, before his plan was thwarted by May Parker. This may still be the same Sandman fans previously knew. In the comics, Flint Marko is just an alias created by Baker to hide his identity from his imprisoned father.
In the scenes shown in the trailer, Peter hasn’t donned the Venom symbiote suit, so it’s likely he and Miles will face Sandman early in the game, although there’s no confirmation of where or how Sandman appears in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. This means, Marvel’s Spider franchise -Man has featured more than a dozen villains (including Doctor Octopus and the Sinister Six), and it is possible that there will be several new villains featured in the third game, which have not yet been revealed to the public.
Fans are still waiting to find out what surprises Insomniac Games has prepared for this sequel. Apart from Kraven and Venom, fans have seen many scenes featuring the villain Lizard, who is ready to wreak havoc throughout New York City, and Peter Parker and Miles Morales must work together to defeat these villains.
And even though the battle with Venom will certainly be the highlight of this game’s story, there are still many small villains that Peter Parker and Miles Morales have to face before the big challenge arises. Marvels’ Spider-Man 2 itself will be released on October 20 2023, and just like the previous game, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is predicted to be one of the best games this year. Let’s just wait, geeks, for Sandman’s appearance in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
