‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Video Game ‘Kingpin’ Trailer Introduces Tons Of Non-Film Foes [Video]

Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game trailer

The release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is just around the corner, and if there’s one thing we know about that movie, it’s that there are a lot of villains involved. Electro, the Rhino, the Green Goblin, some weird-ass dancing baby — they’re all showing up to give the web-slinger some problems. But is that really enough bad guys?

The producers of the video game tie-in certainly don’t think so. As revealed in the latest trailer for the upcoming Activision title, Spider-Man’s going to be throwing webs and flying headscissors takedowns at all those foes, plus the Black Cat, Kraven the Hunter and the Kingpin. And as an added bonus, Activision and Beenox have made the Kingpin hilariously huge. Check out the trailer below!

Spider-Man has had a pretty solid track record in video games going all the way back to Maximum Carnage on the SNES and his 3D debut in Spider-Man, the single best reason to own a Sega Dreamcast, but the Kingpin has been around the gaming world almost as long. He made his video game debut in 1990’s Punisher for the NES (reflecting his status as a prime villain for Marvel’s gun-toting vigilante in the Punisher’s first ongoing series), and has continued to pop up here and there ever since.

His most prominent role was probably in the 1993 Punisher beat-’em-up, where he played the role of the final boss, to be shot and killed by either the Punisher or Nick Fury, depending on whether you’re playing as Player 1 or 2. In that game, he was designed to be around 12 feet tall, and I’m happy to see that Activision has kept that scale going in the new game (Kingpin features a surprisingly straightforward comic book-like design, rather than an overly movie-fied retooling). Seriously, if that is a normal-sized news podium that’s coming in somewhere around Wilson Fisk’s crotch area in the video, then this dude is GIGANTIC.

Also, just a thought here, but maybe if you’re trying to convince the world that you’re a legitimate businessman and not a criminal mastermind, maybe a cane topped with a chrome skull is not the way to accessorize.
