Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Actor Tony Todd Teases More Of Venom’s Story Role

Tony Todd, who plays the character of Venom in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, has offered new details about his character and his experience working on the game in a recent interview. The highly anticipated sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales includes the heroes from both games, with characters Venom and Kraven the Hunter being teased as well. No firm release date has yet been set, but Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is still expected to release sometime in 2023.

As players have been considering the dilemma of Venom’s role in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 – as it’s been unclear if he will serve as more of an antagonist or antihero – a new Twitter thread from Evan Filarca has shed new light on the subject. The thread features highlights from a recent Deeper Depths podcast shared on YouTube with guest Tony Todd, Venom’s voice actor. Todd speaks highly of developer Insomniac Games throughout, praising the studio for its creativity and high-quality design. When the host of Deeper Depths asked Todd about his initial reactions to the game’s story after reading the script, he compared it to the chaotic Rhino chase scene from Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, saying Venom’s presence will be similar to that and joking that « Venom doesn’t give a damn. »

Fans Are Still Waiting On More Official Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Info

Earlier this week, fans thought Todd was teasing a Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 announcement with a comment about upcoming creative news, but this interview has shown that not to be the case. While the interview did provide some more insight into Venom’s character and the grand scale of the upcoming game, no big news like a release date or concrete information on Venom’s role was revealed. The actor did tease a project for fans to keep an eye out for in 2024, but offered no hints as to what it could be.

Even with no big news about Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 being revealed in this interview with Tony Todd, the information provided is exciting nonetheless. Todd is a seasoned actor, appearing in movies like Candyman and games like Half Life: Alyx, so the fact he’s spoken such high praise about the upcoming game is very promising. Especially considering rumors that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 may feature playable Venom, Todd’s excitement over the project likely means players have a lot to look forward to.

Hype for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has been increasing exponentially since its trailer premiered in 2021, but unfortunately, players still have a while until they can get their hands on the title. With such a broad release window, it’s possible the game may not see the light of day until winter 2023. However, based on the high quality of the previous titles in the series and Todd’s exuberance about the game, it seems Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will be well worth the wait.
