Insomniac made a peculiar choice when it came to showing off the first villain in "Spider-Man" for PlayStation 4. Mr. Negative and his Inner Demons are certainly not the most popular villains in Spider-Man's gallery. However, they were at the very center of the in-game footage released as well.

Insomniac's Spider-Man Will Feature Best Villains That Will Challenge Players

According to WCCF Tech, Bryan Intihar, Creative Director at Insomniac Games, explained the choice in an interview with the Official PlayStation MagazineUK in August's #138 issue. He also gave additional insight on what kind of villains fans can expect in "Insomniac's Spider-Man" for PlayStation 4.

This appears to suggest that the full game, which has been confirmed by the developers to feature a "big cast" with lots of classic villains and newcomers. These could have more than just your usual Venom, Doctor Octopus, and Green Goblin.

For example, Sandman, Mysterio, and Kraven the Hunter could all be intriguing choices. Regardless of that, Insomniac also confirmed to OPM UK that they'd "rather create situations where Spider-Man saves somebody", thus hinting that will happen a lot in the game, as reported by the Comic book.

The Marvel superhero also known as Peter Parker might very well be at an all-time high popularity when it comes to transmedia. Tom Holland's Spider-Man Homecoming had a successful theatrical launch in regards to both critics and gross as it had a $117 million opening at the box office.

Hence, "Insomniac's Spider-Man" for PlayStation 4 won IGN's E3 2017 People's Choice Award. Insomniac also confirmed their story will feature plenty of Spidey villains you may not be familiar with.

 "We have a great cast and Peter is just one of many, many characters we have in the game. It's a big, big cast. We have a lot of classic villains and we have a lot of newcomers as well."
