In addition to its emotional story and enjoyable gameplay, Marvel's Spider-Man 2 received praise for its multitude of Easter eggs that comic fans can discover throughout New York. One of the references stood out and made the community believe that Daredevil content might be on the way.
Those who played the previous title know that in Hell's Kitchen, you can find a building with a plaque that references Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson, suggesting that it's the law firm where these characters work.

Will Daredevil come to Marvel's Spider-Man 2?
In the sequel, the building and the plaque are in the same place, but eagle-eyed players noticed that the text referencing the lawyer duo has been removed. What does that mean? It's impossible to say, but the community is already theorizing. Now, Insomniac Games has excited comic book enthusiasts.
In a conversation with IGN, Bryan Intihar, senior creative director of the project, discussed various topics related to Marvel's Spider-Man 2. At one point, he was asked about the Hell's Kitchen building and the plaque change.
"That's a good question. Stay tuned. Good find," is all the Insomniac Games creative had to say.
It's no secret that Matt Murdock is the secret identity of Daredevil. Therefore, the creative's statements have excited fans who believe that downloadable content featuring the blind superhero could be coming to the open-world video game. Some even think the developer might be working on a character spin-off.
What's Insomniac Games' next project?
Since Marvel's Spider-Man 2 has only been on store shelves for a short time worldwide, it seems unlikely that the studio will reveal more information about their upcoming projects at this moment. Right now, we only know that they are already working on Marvel's Wolverine, a new title focused on the mutant superhero from the X-Men.
Insomniac Games has said they are open to the possibility of working on a Venom spin-off, while they've already hinted that the hypothetical Marvel's Spider-Man 3 will be "very epic.".
Therefore, it's unclear if introducing Daredevil is part of their plans for the future. If it does happen, the Hell's Kitchen vigilante could make his first appearance in a DLC for the web-slinger's latest game, in the third installment, or in an individual project.
But tell us, would you like Daredevil to be a part of the Insomniac Games universe? Let us know in the comments.
Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is available for PlayStation 5.
