Curious Art from the Amazing Spider-Man Game

Concept art from 'The Amazing Spider-Man' video game

Next Summer brings the heavily debated Amazing Spider-Man movie, starring Andrew Garfield and directed by Marc Webb, which means that Summer will also see the release of its inevitable tie-in video game. But what technological monstrosity is depicted in this early concept art from the game?

Quebec-based Beenox, developer behind the last two Spider-Man games (Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions and Spider-Man: Edge of Time), is working on The Amazing Spider-Man. Activision revealed today the first details about the game: it’s set in the aftermath of the film, and returns to the free-roaming nature of earlier Spider-Man games where the player is able to web-sling their way to anywhere in the city they want to go, at any time. There’s also a new game mechanic that’s being called “Web Rush,” which is supposed to let you execute a whole bunch of new moves.

The new Spidey will face “a variety of criminals” in this new game, according to Activision’s press release, but I can’t figure out what villainous goliath our hero is facing off against in this piece of concept art from Beenox. It certainly isn’t the Lizard — the movie’s villain — or anything related to him. It almost looks like a giant Scorpion, but that would be a significant departure from the comics.

Any guesses?

The Amazing Spider-Man video game is being written by Seamus Kevin Fahey, who’s worked as a staff writer on Syfy’s Battlestar Galactica and Starz’ Spartacus: Gods of the Arena. Below is a tiny teaser for the game’s first trailer, which will debut on Spike’s Video Game Awards this Saturday night.
