Spider-Man 2 Gameplay Makes a Surprise Appearance in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

Fans of both the Spider-Man video game series and the animated film Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse were in for a pleasant surprise recently. Reports have emerged that gameplay footage from Insomniac’s highly anticipated game, Spider-Man 2, was featured in a brief scene during the movie.

The scene in question takes place early in the film when the protagonist, Miles Morales, returns to his dorm room after a confrontation with the villain known as The Spot. Upon entering the room, Miles finds his friend Ganke engrossed in playing a PlayStation 5 game, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

In the gameplay footage shown, the iconic Peter Parker is seen donning the Advanced Suit, a recognizable outfit from the PlayStation version of the game. He is depicted battling enemies on a rooftop, with his signature robotic arms, which were revealed in September 2021, making an appearance as well. Although the scene doesn’t reveal much about the game’s plot, it serves as a delightful cameo for fans of the video game series.
