PlayStation E3 2018 Showcase Reveals Gameplay Footage from Marvel’s Spider-Man

We’re nearing closer to the September 7 release of Marvel’s Spider-Man! True Believers, we know you’ve been patiently waiting to get your hands on the upcoming blockbuster action game from Marvel Games, Insomniac Games and Sony Interactive Entertainment.

Wait no longer! The PlayStation E3 Showcase just wrapped – and we couldn’t be more thrilled to close out the evening delighting our fans with gaming greatness from our friendly neighborhood webslinger. The gameplay was intense and we can’t wait to share it with you, our trusty online fans!

Take a moment to watch the gameplay footage above (or ten more times).

Things are heating up as we near September 7! What exactly is Spidey up against? As you can see, Peter’s got his hands full with a bunch of Super Villains who he helped put away suddenly making a jail break from the maximum-security RAFT and disrupting the fragile peace NYC has had the past 8 years under Spidey’s jurisdiction. No matter what Earth we’re on – 5 vs. 1 is hardly fair.

Who are these charming individuals (strutting around in brand-new, original suit designs) throwing a wrench into Peter Parker’s peaceful existence, you ask? We’ve got Rhino, Scorpion, Vulture, and Electro joining Mister Negative in the game. The gameplay video introduces a mysterious sixth villain pulling the strings. You’ll have to wait a little bit longer to learn more about the sixth villain, Marvelites.

For fans at E3 in Los Angeles this week, there is a playable demo in the PlayStation booth. Swing around parts of Manhattan, infiltrate enemy bases, tackle research assignments for Harry Osborn, and boss-battle with the Shocker himself. Don’t miss out on grabbing physical copies of the Daily Bugle that’s ripped from the world of Marvel’s Spider-Man the day after the RAFT breakout. You can also peep the Daily Bugle series on the Marvel’s Spider-Man web page. Check back every month through September for new digital issues.

Behold Gentle Giant Ltd’s San Diego Comic-Con Gwenpool Animated Statue

With San Diego Comic-Con nearly here, Marvel.com has the scoop on a convention-exclusive that Gwenpool fans are sure to be excited about – Gentle Giant Ltd’s Gwenpool Animated Statue!

The statue depicts an adorable version of Gwen Poole in her costumed identity, as the mega Marvel fan finds herself transplanted into the Marvel Universe itself – where she meets the same super heroes and villains she has long followed in comic book stories.

This convention exclusive is one of Gentle Giant Ltd’s long-running line of Marvel statues based on the illustrations of best-selling Comic artist Skottie Young. Inspired by Young’s art for the variant cover for THE UNBELIEVABLE GWENPOOL #1, this statue was digitally sculpted and replicated for production on state of the art 3D Systems machines. These high-resolution prints are used in the creation of prototypes needed to produce this well detailed, high-end collectible. Each limited edition animated style statue is hand-cast, painted, and numbered with a matching Certificate of Authenticity.

The Gwenpool Animated Statue is now available in limited quantity for pre-order for people unable to attend SDCC right here!

Skottie Young will be signing at the Gentle Giant Ltd booth each day San Diego Comic-Con and will sign the statue for free for those purchasing it. Young’s signings will be on Thursday-Saturday, July 19- 21, at 2pm-3pm, and on Sunday, July 22 at 11am-12pm.
