Insomniac's Spider-Man 2 Teases No Way Home Crossover

The Spider-Man: No Way Home debut trailer finished with an unexpected ad for three DualSense PS5 controllers, causing fans to speculate whether Marvel are teasing a crossover with Insomniac Games' upcoming Spider-Man 2 game

What Happened In The Trailer?

The trailer's release, on August 24, sent fans into a frenzy with a glimpse of Tom Holland's Peter Parker exploring the complex world of the multiverse with the help of Benedict Cumberbatch's Dr Strange. Then, towards the trailer's conclusion, a simple "Hello, Peter" revealed the exciting return of Doctor Octopus, played by Alfred Molina - who reprises his role from Sony's 2004 film Spider-Man 2. 

However, the trailer's explosive action sequences, mind-blowing graphics, and thrilling character unveilings all came to an abrupt halt with a title screen. This then transitioned to an unexpected advert for PS5 DualSense controllers which are already available to buy.

Could There Be An Upcoming Crossover With The Movie And The Game?

Nothing has been officially confirmed as of yet. However, fans were quick to spot some possible references (via Game Rant) to Insomniac's 2018 Marvel's Spider-Man game. For example, one shot in the trailer featured Peter Parker in what appeared to be one of New York's F.E.A.S.T. facilities. 

Whether it be Marvel's Spider-Man or Miles Morales, F.E.A.S.T. has been a significant and recurrent setting across the universe. Suggesting that, maybe, there is more to this seemingly random ad than meets the eye.

Have Sony Advertised In A Trailer Before?

This isn't the first time Sony has used the release of a movie trailer as a handy marketing tool for PlayStation. The recent Ghostbusters: Afterlife official trailer, also, featured the same ad. Again, this was only a short clip towards the end of the video. 

On the whole, although the general reviews from fans have been incredibly positive, many were confused as to the reason for the ad: "Def a bit odd but man what a hype trailer! Can't wait to see the movie!". Another said: "This seems to be Sony's latest marketing thing". 

Whether or not this is just Sony's new way of advertising products, or a hidden message of exciting things to come, we will have to see. However, with Marvel's Spider-Man having the potential to venture out into the mind-bending world of the multiverse, anything could be possible.
