Marvel’s Midnight Sun has an interesting connection Marvel’s Spider Man. Marvel Games has released many fantastic games over the years based on some of the most iconic superheroes ever created. Marvel’s video games felt like they got a huge quality boost with the release of Insomniac’s Marvel’s Spider Man in 2018 because it had a fresh, top-notch story, incredibly satisfying gameplay, and stood on its own. In the years since, we’ve gotten a mediocre Avengers game, a great Guardians of the Galaxy game, and now a new turn-based strategy game centered around the Midnight Suns. Of course, this game features other Marvel heroes, including Spidey.
None of these games are tied together in the way the MCU weaves together all of its movies and shows, but Marvel’s Midnight Sun derives an important element from Marvel’s Spider Man. Actor Yuri Lowenthal reprises his role as a wall crawler Marvel’s Midnight Sun, giving fans a welcome and familiar voice for the beloved character. This was announced earlier this year, but if you’re playing the game now, you might be wondering where you’ve heard his voice before. It’s worth noting that this isn’t the same Spider-Man as in the Insomniac universe, these are very different versions and it seems Marvel Games intends to keep it that way. The gaming company has noted that it has no mandate for a connected universe, so developers have complete freedom to tell the stories they want to tell without influencing another.
Yuri Lowenthal has also played Spider-Man Marvel’s Ultimate Alliance 3, so he’s more than familiar with playing slightly different versions of the same character. He is expected to reprise his primary Spider-Man role in the Insomniac universe next year. Marvel’s Spider Man 2 will see Peter Parker join forces with Miles Morales to battle villains like Venom and possibly Kraven the Hunter, but that’s all we know for now.
Would you like to see Yuri Lowenthal return as Spider-Man or would you prefer other actors for other versions of the character? Let me know in the comments or give me a call Twitter @Cade_Onder.
