- Miles will be the main Spider-Man in Marvel’s Spider-Man 3, but Peter will likely still keep an eye on him as a mentor.
- With his boots hung up, Peter now has time to rekindle his romance with MJ.
- Peter may pop up occasionally to help Miles and Ganke with suit tech and join forces with other Marvel heroes like Daredevil or Wolverine.
Despite Marvel’s Spider-Man 3 still being many years away from release, it hasn’t stopped speculation and discussions surrounding the beloved Peter Parker. The game is yet to be officially announced, but based on the ending of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and the unfortunate breach of Insomniac’s data, fans can expect to see the Spider-Men back in action for a third time.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2: 5 Reasons Why Peter Deserves A Break
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2’s ending has finally given Peter Parker a reason to hang up the boots for the time being.
Acknowledging this, there are many factors to take into consideration when speaking about Peter Parker with his character arc in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and how this will impact the inevitable third installment. With a clear indication of a long break for the character, there are several plot points for Peter that will be relevant to the overarching narrative.

5 Overseeing Miles
Miles Will Be The Main Spider-Man Going Forward
In the game’s final scene before the end credits, Miles assures Peter that he has the city in his hands and is capable of keeping it safe. While it is made clear that Miles is more than capable of keeping New York protected without Peter alongside him, there is no doubt that Miles is still on a learning journey.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 3 could very well include Miles being a mentor himself with the introduction of Silk, but Peter will surely be keeping an eye on him to ensure all is well in the next installment. Whether it be adult advice or friendly neighborhood Spider-Man tips, Insomniac makes it clear that the relationship between the two characters will remain strong.
4 Life With MJ
The Characters Now Have Time To Rekindle Their Romance
With the boots hung up for the time being, Peter’s character journey has come to a satisfying end, whether that is temporary or permanent. In many adaptations that include Peter Parker as Spider-Man, the character hardly ever gets a chance at life or settling down and often suffers the consequences of trying to balance her two lives.
4 Villains Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Sets Up For The Sequel
Several characters introduced in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 are set up to become dangerous threats to Peter and Miles in a sequel.
After losing Uncle Ben, Aunt May, and potentially Harry Osborn again, it is the perfect time for the story to cover his and MJ’s relationship in a positive light. If Peter is a playable character in the next game, this would be a great approach for Insomniac to take.
3 Part-Time Hero
Peter May Pop Up On Occasion For Some Crime Stopping
There is no disputing Miles’ capability of being New York’s one and only Spider-Man – it has been proven in the standalone Miles Morales game and in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, where he overcomes Symbiote Peter. Despite this, there will more than likely be threats that appear that will be too tough to handle alone, even for Peter himself.
With the ending of the game setting up Norman Osborn and Otto Octavius as the main villains, the likelihood of Peter joining the party to save the city is high. Besides this, as the free-roaming at the end of the game may suggest, there could be instances where players can control Peter to free-roam and stop crime when it is convenient for the character to do so.
2 Helping Miles & Ganke With Suit Tech
Peter’s Genius Could Be Highly Beneficial To Miles
If there is anyone who is almost an expert at suit creation, it would be Peter Parker. After years of going solo and forming his own suits, with the Anti-Venom suit now inhabited within him, there are a plethora of ideas for suit designs and upgrades that could be in store for Miles.
All Story Arcs In Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Ranked
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 features a large cast of characters who each go through a harrowing and ultimately rewarding story arc.
While Ganke and Miles are both capable of making enhancements alone, Peter would have the free time to support Miles while on the sidelines away from New York crime. This may tie into the narrative in terms of what Peter will be doing in the meantime after Harry and his vision crumbled due to Kraven and Venom.
1 Daredevil Or Wolverine Team-Up
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 DLC Could Feature One Of Marvel’s Heroes
Going by the calamitous Marvel’s Wolverine leak, there is not much to suggest that any of the Spider-Men will be present during the narrative. Despite this, fans have been awaiting a cameo or introduction of popular Marvel heroes, and knowing that Peter and Logan have had multiple interactions together in comics and games, it would feel like a missed opportunity.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 contains references to the Hand, which will instantly alert Daredevil fans – seeing Matt Murdock and Peter team up together would work to great effect just as it would with Logan. If there are no current plans for these potential partnerships in DLC, Marvel’s Spider-Man 3 is the best place to make it happen. While it is important to mention that Miles will more than likely be the focus, there would be no harm in both him and Peter interacting with these fan-favorite characters.
