Insomniac Games developed Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and anyone familiar with the studio’s work in the past knows that it loves its Easter Eggs. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is no exception. The game has a wide range of Easter Eggs.

From the pointing Spider-Man meme, to Carnage being teased in one of the side-missions. From the Sanctum Sanctorum, to a full-fledged Black Panther-inspired suit. There are plenty of Easter Eggs which can be noticed in the game with ease.

Some Easter Eggs in the game, however, require an eye for the most minor details. One of them is the Daredevil Easter Egg, which is subtle, but concrete if observed carefully.

In an exclusive interview with IGN, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2’s Creative Director, Bryan Intihar, talked about Daredevil appearing in the franchise.

While there was no official confirmation about the same, the possibility wasn’t totally ruled out by Marvel’s Spider-Man 2’s Creative Director.

What Marvel’s Spider-Man 2’s Creative Director Said About a Prospective Daredevil Crossover

The Nelson and Murdock plaque now seems to be bereft of text in Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

As mentioned, the topic arose in the game’s Creative Director, Bryan Intihar’s exclusive interview with IGN. To give readers some context, there was a similar Easter Egg relating to the famous crimson-clad superhero from Hell’s Kitchen.

One could notice a plaque titled Nelson and Murdock Attorneys at Law. For people who are unaware, in Nelson and Murdock, Murdock stands for Matthew Murdock, which is Daredevil’s alter ego. There is a slight change in the location of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

If one visits the exact location with Miles or Peter, one can find the exact same building with the plaque. However, the text on the plaque seems missing. Also, beside it is what looks like an eviction notice. This hints that the attorneys may have relocated their legal office.

Apart from this, Peter also mentions some lawyer friends of his with visitation rights. This reference, however vague, may be a nod to the attorney duo officially making an appearance in the game’s universe.

When Bryan Intehar was asked about this peculiar detail, he seemed to neither confirm nor deny the crossover possibilities. Intehar suggested:

That’s a good question,Stay tuned. Good find though.

What Could This Mean for Insomniac’s Future Plans?

Marvel's Wolverine, already announced by Insomniac could come right after Marvel's Spider-Man 2

This may mean that Insomniac is planning a whole universe of Marvel Characters. Given the ending for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, a sequel seems almost inevitable. The ending saw Peter hanging up his suit and mask and retiring as New York’s original web-slinger.

Miles now seems to be solely responsible in case there is a Spider-Man level threat directed towards New York. But the ending also saw Norman Osborn getting the G serum ready, which hints the Green Goblin will feature in one of the upcoming games in the series.

All this suggests that there will be a sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. We know that Insomniac is also working on Marvel’s Wolverine, which may be set in the same universe as Marvel’s Spider-Man. Developers also hinted that they aren’t against a Venom spinoff.

In fact, when the Senior Narrative Director for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 spoke to Insider, he clearly said that the studio plans on listening to what the fans want. Senior Narrative Director Jon Paquette said:

So, here’s what we’re doing. We’re focused on ‘Spider-Man 2,’ and what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna wait to see how the fans react,

Paquette then continued and said:

We’re gonna listen to the fans and we’re gonna ask ourselves, ‘Okay, what do the fans really want?

The possibility of Daredevil appearing in a Spider-Man sequel is almost entirely unavoidable, even the most negligible possibility for a Venom spinoff, and the already announced Marvel’s Wolverine. Marvel fans could be in for a treat if Insomniac actually executes and explores these tangents.
