Sony has released the launch trailer for Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Like the previous gameplay trailer, the Miles Morales launch trailer hides some nifty little secrets we would like to tell you about. These blink and you miss it Easter eggs are everything you will need to keep yourself hyped up. Here it goes.
Enter The Prowler
The Prowler was already hinted at coming to this game in earlier poster reveals. But the trailer showed us the first look at a fully armored Prowler for the first time. The trailer gives us an entirely different look at the Prowler at 0:39. He is sporting purple and green instead of the colors he was originally teased in the aforementioned poster variant. The Prowler’s costume also has cat like shoulder paddings and turns purple in lowlight conditions. There is also a glowing chest insignia we are not able to figure out the reason for. There is more to the Prowler than what meets the eye.
The Prowler Is Not Here To Kill Spider-Man
Unlike what happened in Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, the Prowler is not going to be killed after learning Miles’ superhero identity. The launch trailer shows him going after Peter Parker but he is none too willing to dish out the same treatment for the other Spider-Man. In the comic, Aaron Davis is Miles Morales’ uncle and both frequently clash due to opposing ideologies. Maybe we might see Miles and Aaron have a final battle royale where they try to convince and outsmart each other at the same time.
The Iron Man Connection
The gameplay trailer also reveals another supporting villain with deep-rooted connections to a major Avenger of Marvel Comics. Simon Krieger murmurs the name of Miles Morales at 1:05. Krieger is probably in charge of Roxxon and heads the company in the game. Krieger is actually a long-time Iron Man villain. The ruthless business tycoon and warlord tried to impersonate Tony Stark and steal his wealth and fortune. Simon Krieger was also the one responsible for the death of Tony Stark’s parents, all in an attempt to get his hands on Stark Industries. Is Insomniac hinting at Tony Stark entering the scene at some point of time now that Krieger is a part of the game? Only time will tell.
At 1:08, the Tinkerer uses a mysterious technology to jump extremely high and punch Miles Morales to Kingdom Come. At closer inspection, you will find that the Tinkerer uses a very familiar looking cannister to do so. The cannister that powers her jump tech is Nuform. In another gameplay trailer launched earlier, it was revealed that Miles Morales accidentally super-charged a Nuform cannister with his bio-electric energy, creating a massive and violent explosion. The Tinkerer using Nuform as the foundation of her anti-Spider-Man tech is not a coincidence. There is a deeper connection we have not been able to figure out.
Rhino’s New Suit
At 1:37, you see Rhino escaping the Raft prison convoy and fighting the two Spider-Men before Peter Parker takes him away from the scene. But if you slow down the video and pause at the perfect moment, you will realize Rhino is wearing a new suit. The boss fight we have in the beginning of the game features Rhino in a darker toned suit. There are red lights on his calves and shoulders. His two signature blue eyes from the previous game have been replaced with four red lights. Somebody has upgraded Rhino’s suit. Our theory is that we will be seeing Rhino as a recurring villain throughout the game. If we use our rudimentary powers of deduction, then we come to the conclusion that there’s someone pulling the strings from behind the curtains.
