The Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 panel at San Diego Comic-Con this year was just the tip of the iceberg for the upcoming Insomniac Games title. Hype continues to build for fans ready to step back into the shoes of Peter Parker, and the character designs shown off at Hall H are the most recent topic of conversation. Gamers excited for the soon to release game have been quick to praise the new character models, expressing how much more lifelike they are compared to the previous title. This comes in addition to the story trailer reveal on the same day, which gave fans a taste of what is to come when their favorite New York web-swinging superheroes return once again.

The character designs that were shown off at SDCC 2023 include: Peter Parker, Mary Jane Watson, Harry Osborn, Venom and Miles Morales. Several fans have taken to Reddit, Twitter, Facebook and other social media forums, to discuss their thoughts on this newly released content. While there has been a wide range of opinions on the topic, it looks like most observers are pleased with the changes that have been implemented by Insomniac.

Players of Marvel’s Spider-Man might recall that when the remastered version of the game was released, John Bubniak was replaced by Ben Jordan as the face of Peter Parker. While this decision was met with a mixed reception, fans appear to be much more on board with the new design. Some have even claimed it looks much more like Jordon than the remastered version. Although some gamers may still hold on to their favoritism over the original version of Peter Parker, there will likely be a much greater shift once Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is finally available.

Mary Jane and Miles Morales have also been getting a lot of attention. While it appeared Insomniac went for a complete remodel of the former, the face model is actually the same, however, vocal fans believe it looks much more realistic, less plastic, and not as computerized. As for Miles Morales, gamers are loving his new haircut, saying it adds more dimension to his face. Other than the character’s haircut, which lends to the nine month time jump in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, there have not been many noticeable changes to the character  outside of a slightly different face model.


James Stevenson, the Community and Marketing Director at Insomnic Games, recently became involved with the fan responses when he took to Twitter to add his own comments. In response to a tweet saying how good the character designs look, Stevenson stated: 

“And it’ll be even better by launch”

It is clear from his comment that Insomnic is not done working on the character models for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, which is an important development for fans. It shows the developer behind the highly popular web-swinging superhero is taking special care to bring these dynamic characters to life. It shows a commitment to the franchise not to settle with the same old designs and to bring new and fresh ideas to the sequel. When Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 releases on October 20, gamers will finally get to experience the majorly anticipated title and witness these new designs first hand.
