Spider-Man‘s E3 2018 stage demonstration ended with a cliffhanger that hid the face of one of the game’s biggest villains. This villain was presumably intended to stay secret until closer to the game’s launch, but the voice actor for the villain Rhino just couldn’t keep it to himself.
In an E3 interview with popular Call of Duty YouTuber Drift0r, Rhino voice actor Chris Jai Alex discussed the fight scene at the end of the Spider-Man E3 demo. For those missing the connection, Alex is also the multiplayer announcer for the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. While discussing the Spider-Man demo, Alex let slip that “the fight scene was particularly hard because everyone is scaled differently, ya know? Dr. Octopus is really tall…”
The video of Alex’s slip-up was originally posted to Drift0r’s Twitter account, but that video has since been removed, presumably at the behest of Sony trying to cover up the leak. Unfortunately for the publisher, nothing can be taken back once it hits the internet, so the clip can be seen below, courtesy of Rick Grimes (the YouTuber, not the zombie killer).
Doct Ock was one of our guesses for who the mysterious demo villain was, and the secret villain’s placement within the demo suggesting he is calling the shots for the Sinister Six. This may seem like an excessive amount of enemies for Spider-Man to have to face, but hints of other heroes in the game’s playable floor demo tease that he may not have to fight them alone. One ally that’s already confirmed for the game is Black Cat, but the extent of the character’s role is still unclear.
Spider-Man is slated to launch September 7th, exclusively on PlayStation 4.
