Spider-Man Open-World Trailer Serves Up J. Jonah Jameson Rants and New York Landmarks
Another day, another badass Spider-Man trailer. Earlier this week, Sony and Insomniac dropped their Spider-Man gameplay launch trailer, and now we have the New York City open-world trailer. As the title implies, this trailer focuses on Spidey web-slinging around Manhattan, and includes glimpses of plenty of NYC landmarks, both real (the Empire State Building, Radio City Music Hall) and fictional (Avengers Tower, Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum). Having never been to New York myself, there are probably a ton of landmarks I’m missing.
Overtop the footage, we hear a verbal sparring match between J. Jonah Jameson, who seems to have reinvented himself as a fiery talk radio host, and pro-Spidey caller, Peter Park, er, Patterson. Of course, Jameson is still banging the “Spider-Man is a menace!” drum after all these years – never change, Triple J. You can check out the trailer, below.

I got a chance to go hands-on with Spider-Man at E3, and, for the most part, I came away impressed…
“While I walked away from my hands-on time with Spider-Man with a few quibbles about the game’s traversal, there’s no denying Insomniac’s comic book romp grabbed me. . While I’m generally satisfied to try most E3 demos once and move on, I snuck back for seconds and third helpings of the game and was tempted indulge in even more. Spider-Man doesn’t reinvent the open-world superhero template established by Batman: Arkham City, but it sands off some of the rough edges, creating a light, accessible, open-world adventure a broad range of gamers and comic book fans ought to get wrapped up in.”
Spider-Man swings onto shelves on September 7.
