• Marvel's Spider-Man 2 will feature both Peter Parker and Miles Morales battling fan-favorite villains Kraven the Hunter and Venom.
  • The game will have special editions, including a Collector's Edition with a 19-inch statue of Venom fighting Peter and Miles.
  • PlayStation's tweet advertising the Collector's Edition has sparked saucy comments and innuendos from the community, generating discussion and attention for the game.

A Marvel's Spider-Man 2 tweet from the official PlayStation account has come across as rather thirsty, particularly regarding one of the game's main villains. The next entry in Insomniac's acclaimed superhero series will pit both Peter Parker and Miles Morales' Spider-Men against a wealth of fan-favorite foes, primarily Kraven the Hunter and Venom, and 2023's PlayStation Showcase's gameplay footage revealed that Peter will be battling the darkness of the addictive symbiote himself at one point.

The game will launch worldwide with a variety of special editions. These include the Digital Deluxe Edition, which has 10 unique suits, and the $229.99 Collector's Edition, which also comes with a steelbook display case and a collectible statue. The statue features both heroes attacking Venom from above and was the first proper indicator of how large Insomniac's take on the character is.

PlayStation Is Advertising "19 Inches Of Venom"

In a post on Twitter, PlayStation UK advertised Marvel's Spider-Man 2's Collector's Edition by urging fans to pre-order and "Treat yourself to 19-inches of Venom".

Whether this was intentionally meant to be an innuendo, or merely a poor choice of words when referring to the 19-inch statue of Venom is unknown, but it has certainly spurred many comments online, with "19 INCHES OF WHAT?" trending on Twitter for most of the day.

Peter's emotional scenes were cut short by coming near the end of Marvel's Spider-Man.

Several of the comments have referred to the slightly saucy tone of PlayStation's initial post, and are joining in with the fun. While Insomniac Games' own Community and Marketing Director, James Stevenson simply replied "I have so many comments", others such as Broseidon shared the Anakin and Padme Star Wars meme with the caption "You mean the figurine, right?". Several of the comments seemed to be more explicit in their responses, with RealShadowFan01 stating "I can take him", CamNuggie simply commenting "Would", and Black Thunder suggestively sharing an image of fellow PlayStation mascot Kratos from the God of War series holding a rather large vegetable.

Whether the undertones of PlayStation's post were intentional or not, it has certainly got people talking about the product, meaning that from a purely marketing perspective, it's definitely achieved its goal - not that the title needed much more hype. It is already one of PlayStation's most anticipated first-party titles in 2023. Marvel's Spider-Man 2 releases exclusively on PS5 on October 20, and all of its special editions have been available to pre-order with exclusive additional content since June 16.
