Sony's much-hyped Playstation Showcase took place last night, bringing fans teasers and reveals of some incredible new titles for the Playstation 5, from God of War Ragnarök to Gran Turismo 7.
But for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and Insomniac Games alike, the reveal of two new blockbuster Marvel games is bound to be the highlight.
The brief teaser trailer for Spider-Man 2 shows Peter Parker and Miles Morales – the titular 'Spidermen' of the two previous smash-hit Spider-Man games – teaming up to fight goons back to back.
It's unclear whether you will be able to switch between the two characters or what supporting role they will play with one another, but the trailer hints at some exciting team combat mechanics and new kit (hello, robot arms).
Perhaps the biggest reveal comes right at the end, with the last-minute appearance of the legendary Spider-Man villain, Venom.
In previous games, such as the comic book-style Ultimate Spiderman on PS2, Venom has been a playable character, but there's no details on whether he will be this time around.
Fans took to Twitter to share their excitement. "God of War, Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine… lord bless my wallet," one wrote. Another, LimesMartin, said: "Very glad [Spider-Man 2] and [Wolverine] seem to be next gen only. These are some of the first really big fully next gen games we'll see I think."
While the trailer is exciting, fans of the franchise have got some time to go before they can join the webslingers in action – it won't be released until 2023.

After that was an announcement that nobody saw coming. It looks like Spider-Man developers Insomniac Games are also working on a game adaptation of Marvel's beloved X-Men character Wolverine.
The reveal trailer shows a man in the cowboy hat drinking at a wrecked bar in the aftermath of a fight he's presumably won – before revealing his iconic claws.
Famously portrayed by Hugh Jackman in the Sony movie franchise, it's unclear how closely Insomniac's Wolverine will mirror the film universe – but it promises an emotional narrative and some sharp gameplay either way.
