Yuri Lowenthal, the voice actor for Peter Parker in Marvel's Spider-Man 2, considers Spider-Man's villains as formidable as Batman's. The actor hints at several suspenseful encounters in the upcoming sequel game.

Spider-Man's Villains Rank High, Says Game's Star Actor

When it comes to iconic villains of the superhero comic universe, Batman’s notorious gallery takes the lead with unforgettable figures like the Joker, Riddler, Scarecrow, and Penguin. However, according to Yuri Lowenthal, the voice actor behind Peter Parker in the beloved video game Marvel's Spider-Man 2, Spidey’s foes might just give Batman's villain gang a run for their money. Lowenthal has expressed his admiration for Spider-Man's rogues gallery, asserting that they could be second only to – or on an equal footing with – those of Batman.

In a recent interview with Collider, when probed about any potential villains he would like to see in a possible third installment of Marvel's Spider-Man, Lowenthal refrained from giving away spoilers. Instead, he took the opportunity to voice his appreciation for Spider-Man's lineup of villains, ranking them among the finest in the realm of superhero storytelling. He claimed that either on par with or just a rank below Batman, Spider-Man undoubtedly boasts one of the most impressive villain rosters.

Players of Insomniac's Spider-Man games have already seen the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man face off against an impressive cadre of Marvel villains. The list includes the likes of Vulture, Electro, Rhino, Kingpin, Mister Negative, and many more; adding to the excitement of the gameplay. Teasers for the upcoming Marvel's Spider-Man 2 suggest fans are in for more thrilling encounters. Some of the featured villains include Venom, Kraven the Hunter, and The Sandman. While the game is set to launch later this week, players are already eager to see if there are other surprise appearances in store.

As the anticipation for the new Spider-Man sequel grows, it won't be long now until gamers get their chance to swing through New York City in the game world themselves. Gamers can start pre-loading Marvel's Spider-Man 2 on their PS5 consoles, ready to hop into the action as soon as the game releases on October 20, 2023. However, it might be a good idea to avoid online discussions till then, to prevent stumbling upon any spoilers.

In a separate conversation, Lowenthal expressed his fondness for the character of Peter Parker, going as far as to say that he would be more than happy to lend his voice to portray the character 'forever,' should Insomniac permit him. This statement reflects the actor’s passion for the role and his connection to the Spider-Man franchise, adding another level of sincerity to the character within the game series. Whether it's the close fights against loathsome foes or the heartfelt bond with a cherished character, it seems that the upcoming Marvel's Spider-Man 2 promises an adventure teeming with suspense, emotion and, most importantly, fun.
