Miles Morales Creator Says He is “Blown Away” by Upcoming Spider-Man PS5 Game
Spider-Man: Miles Morales, by all accounts, looks pretty amazing, but the character's creator, Brian Michael Bendis, seems more stunned than most.
In the wake of Sony’s recent PS5 Showcase event, many have been sharing their own reactions to what is likely the platform’s most notable launch title: Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Of those who have made their opinion heard about the follow-up entry in Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man universe
Over on Twitter recently, comic book writer Brian Michael Bendis and the creator of Miles Morales the character shared the new gameplay footage from Spider-Man: Miles Morales and seemed stunned at what he saw. “It’s actually hard for me to describe how blown away I am by this,” Bendis said. In a follow-up response, Marvel Games’ Bill Rosemann said that the team consistently looked at Bendis’ work on the character in the comics when developing the game.

The longtime Marvel turned DC Comics writer first created Morales back in 2011 alongside artist Sara Pichelli. While originally taking up the mantle of Ultimate Spider-Man, Morales has since gone on to be featured in a number of different Marvel projects. The character’s most notable appearance is likely that of Into the Spider-Verse, which hit theaters back in 2018.
Honestly, it has to be pretty cool for Bendis to see a character he created become so widely popular in a number of different avenues over the years. I can only imagine what it was like for someone like Stan Lee to see all of the Marvel characters he created become worldwide icons before passing away in late 2018. Hopefully, Miles’ latest appearance can have as big of an effect on those playing the game as it has seemed to have had on Bendis.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is set to release later this year in tandem with the PS5 and will launch on November 12. However, if you don’t want to upgrade to the next-gen console right away, the game will also be available on PS4.
