Dr. Conners, one of Spider-Man’s well-known adversaries, transforms into the Lizard after using a special serum initially intended to aid in the regeneration of lost limbs in humans.

Within the footage, Peter and Miles make an attempt to rescue the Lizard from Kraven and his accomplices.

Although the Lizard’s alliances remain unknown, it is evident that he will play a significant role in the game’s storyline.

Among Kraven’s potential targets, Detective Yuri Watanabe, known for her alter ego Wraith, is also observed.

In Marvel Comics, Wraith is a vigilante who employs confiscated technology from various villains such as Mysterio, Mr. Fear, and the Chameleon to combat criminal activities.

Although Detective Watanabe previously appeared in Marvel’s Spider-Man game, she did not assume the role of Wraith during that time. It appears that in the game’s world, Detective Watanabe has embarked on a similar journey, embracing the path of Wraith.

Tombstone | [ Unconfirmed ]

Tombstone is yet another Kraven”s target in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. In Marvel comics, Alonzo Thompson Lincoln is a supervillain depicted as a hulking albino man with filed teeth.

Another prominent character from Marvel’s Spider-Man, Taskmaster makes a comeback in the sequel as one of the targets pursued by Kraven.

The Taskmaster in the game is no different from his character in the comics. He is still the merciless mercenary most fans know.

Utilizing his power to mimic the fighting styles of others, he trains henchmen and launches assaults on superheroes.

It remains uncertain whether Taskmaster will continue to pose challenges for players, as he did in the first game.

Kingpin | [ Unconfirmed ]

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will mark the return of Kingpin, who has previously appeared in both Marvel’s Spider-Man and the Miles Morales spin-off game.

Wilson Fisk, also known as Kingpin, is an unrelenting and merciless criminal mastermind. He exercises control over an extensive illicit empire that extends its influence throughout the entire city.

Kingpin being in the game doesn’t come off as a complete surprise. However, it’s exciting to see how this villain fits into the storyline now that we’re facing off against Kraven the Hunter.

Shocker | [ Unconfirmed ]

Unlike many other Spider-Man villains, the Shocker’s motivations primarily revolve around acquiring wealth and living a comfortable life.
