Another Spider-Man PS4 Villain Potentially Leaked

If true, the Sinister Six is now complete.


Anyone familiar with Spider-Man's villains knows that most incarnations of the Sinister Six feature either Doctor Octopus or the Sandman as the group's leader. While Sandman hasn't been confirmed to appear in Marvel's Spider-Man, it's been speculated that Doctor Octopus would fill that villainous leader role. According to Comicbook, though, we can thank Rhino voice actor Chris Jai Alex for potentially revealing that the mad scientist will indeed rain all over Peter Parker's parade.

The possible leak happened in a video between established Call of Duty player Dritft0r and Jai Alex. Though the interview was primarily about Treyarch's upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, because Jai Alex acts in both Black Ops 4 and Spider-Man, something about Insomniac's open-world, superhero game was bound to come up. Unfortunately, he potentially let slip the sixth villain's identity.

"The fight sequence was particularly hard because everyone is scaled differently, you know? Doctor Octopus is really tall. Rhino is big..." Jai Alex says before the video abruptly cuts. Insomniac hasn't confirmed whether Doctor Octopus will be in Spider-Man, but if he is, that'll mark the seventh villain in the game. This includes Mister Negative and the rest of the game's Sinister Six: Electro, Rhino, Scorpion, Vulture, and Shocker.

Marvel's Spider-Man will be available for PlayStation 4 on September 7, 2018. During E3 2018, we got to check out Spider-Man and said it "may be one the best game experiences we've had with the webslinger."
