Lord retweeted the reveal trailer for the upcoming game, writing, “We got a chance last year to check out what the insomniacs are up to and… it’s special. They’re special.”
It certainly sounds as though Lord liked what he saw, and he was impressed with the people making it. By “insomniacs” Lord is of course referring to the developers at Insomniac Games who gave us 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4 and are now working on the followup. Lord knows what it takes to capture the essence of Miles and faithfully adapt him from the comics to another medium, so if he approves of the game, then Insomniac must be doing a good job.
It sounds like Lord wasn’t alone when he saw the game, so we’d hazard a guess that he saw it with some of his fellow Spider-Verse filmmakers, including his longtime collaborator Chris Miller.
Some confusion arose as to whether Spider-Man: Miles Morales was an expansion of the first game or not, but Sony has since clarified that it is a smaller standalone game.
