Weekend Headlines - Spider-man News

Marvel's upcoming Spider-Man event series Spidergeddon will enter the Spider-Verse again, and this time, Spider-Man of Insomniac Games and PlayStation's Marvel's Spider-Man will be waiting on the other side.

The PlayStation 4 video game version of the wall-crawler was apparently hiding in plain sight - according to Polygon, he's the blacked out figure from the recent Spidergeddon teaser showcasing many different versions of Spider-Man.
The PS4 Spider-Man will debut in Spidergeddon #0, which series writer Christos Gage specified would take place after the events of the game, for which Gage also wrote the story.

“We’ll try to avoid huge spoilers for anyone who may read the comic before finishing the game,” Gage added.

“Growing up as lifelong fans of the web-slinger, everyone on the Marvel Games, Insomniac Games and PlayStation teams are honored and thrilled that characters from Marvel’s Spider-Man are not only gracing all-new variant covers, but are also starring in an in-continuity Marvel Comics event,” said Marvel Games executive creative director Bill Rosemann in a statement. 

“While making the game we poured through hundreds of Spidey’s comics, which inspired our take on his many famous friends, foes, costumes and moments. For the creative process to come full circle and see our version of the characters now appear in the web-slinger’s latest comic book saga is a dream come true for these True Believers.”

“It’s been such an honor for all of us at Insomniac Games to bring the friendly neighborhood wall-crawler to the PlayStation 4, but to see our version of Spider-Man now swing to the pages of a Marvel comic and be featured in Spidergeddon is something we could have never imagined,” added Insomniac Games creative director Bryan Intihar. “We’re all web heads and super excited for the upcoming comics.”

Spidergeddon #0 is due out on shelves September 26, just after the release of Marvel's Spider-Man. Its cover, featuring the PS4 Spider-Man, can be seen here. Artist Clayton Crain will draw the issue's interiors.
