Marvel's Spider-Man is barely into its second week on shelves, but already it's clear that the world is contemplating the sequel. Littered throughout the game are teases for a follow-up and even a Marvel Gaming Universe of sorts, meaning that Insomniac's PS4 exclusive is poised to take on a significance none had perhaps imagined it would before release.
It's this year's gaming phenomenon, and although we'll probably discover more about Insomniac's plans as the studio roll out their post-release content (the first of which, titled 'The Heist', releases October 23), there's still quite a lot we can discern from the information provided in-game, and in a few select interviews given after its launch.
Taking a cue from Brian Bendis' and Mark Bagley's Ultimate Spider-Man comic, Insomniac have completely reinvented the wall-crawler's mythos and, in-turn, have put the character on a path that's both unpredictable and exciting.
Sure, there's plenty we don'tknow about the sequel, but there's still quite a bit we're currently able to decipher - even if we're still waiting on an announcement that it is indeed in production.
