Thus far, Marvel’s Spider-Man has only scratched the surface of what is possible with the Marvel Comics universe. More notably, the characters that could cross paths in future experiences. In the past, many were hoping that Square Enix’s Marvel’s Avengers would bridge with Marvel’s Spider-Man – especially with the webhead being unique to the PlayStation version of the game. But, Marvel did confirm there is no link to properly collaborate.
Instead, the first major connection with Marvel’s Spider-Man was in 2020 with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. This, of course, expanded into the recent sequel, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Additionally, there is room to speculate that this is to continue forward with Insomniac Games-made projects with Marvel’s Wolverine on the way now.
When speaking to The Movie Dweeb in a YouTube interview, Spider-Man voice actor Yuri Lowenthal elaborated on Spider-Man & Wolverine meeting in the future. You can watch the segment of the interview in the video below:
“I will say this, while that is news to me and while, you know, the Spider-Man Wolverine crossover would be terribly exciting, I would- there’s one character that I would opt for even more strongly than Wolverine and it would be Deadpool,” Lowenthal says. The Spider-Man Deadpool relationship in comics is one of the most delightful out there.”
He elaborates that aside from his love of Moon Knight as a close second, Deadpool is one he personally brought up to Insomniac. “If I’ve just spoiled it for Spider-Man 3 then, you know, I would just like to believe that they got the idea from me anyway.” Of course, there is room to potentially expand on this as post-launch does bring in more characters as it did in the first game.
Recently, it was shared in an interview that Insomniac Games is to keep its ear to the ground for chatter in demand for a Venom spin-off. Senior narrative director Jon Paquette told Insider that fans response is what dictates the decision. This could even branch to more characters like Carnage and Riot.
