Insomniac has hired an experienced concept artist from the Marvel Cinematic Universe as art director for the Spider-Man 2 game.

Davison Carvalho was hired by Insomniac Games in February this year. The artist has worked as a freelance concept artist on Marvel films such as Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Thor: Ragnarok and Captain Marvel.

Of his work on Doctor Strange, Carvalho said, “I helped in the early development of the Look and Feel art and concept art of the environment for the film. I’ve worked for 3rd party companies and teamed up with other amazing concept artists.

The artist has also worked on several high-profile, UI-focused games, including Mortal Kombat X, Halo Infinite, Lone Echo, and Amazon’s Crucible.

Grant Hollis and Gavin Goulden, the art directors of Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Miles Morales, are both working on Insomniac’s next Wolverine game, according to their LinkedIn profiles.

Developed by Insomniac Games, Spider-Man 2 is coming exclusively to PS5 in 2023. Bill Rosemann, Vice President of Creative at Marvel Games, described it as “everything you love” about the first game and Spider-Man: Miles Morales “but Continued”.

“There are several enemies. I can say the story continues and goes from Marvel’s Spider-Man to Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales,” he said last year.

“I don’t want to reveal too much but this is the next big chapter, there’s a lot of threads, a lot of characters that were in the first two games that you’ll see here.”

Insomniac Games is also working on a Wolverine game for PS5. According to the studio, the game will be a standalone title directed by Brian Horton and Cameron Christian, who were the creative heads of Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

“Even though Marvel’s Wolverine is very early in development, from what I’ve seen of its emotional narrative and cutting-edge gameplay, the team is already creating something really special,” said the head of Insomniac’s franchise strategy, Ryan Schneider.
