How Blatantly Does the New Spider-Man Trailer Rip Off Mirror’s Edge?

Stephen Totilo — The new Spider-Man movie trailer is cool. It's also a bit familiar to those of us who played and enjoyed the 2008 video game Mirror's Edge. How similar? Watch. You might notice some amazing, spectacular coincidences.

People will find anything to bitch about. I'm sure Spider-Man was running along rooftops and jumping over shit before the guy's who created Mirror's Edge were even born.

When did you see him do it in FP until now?

In the Spider-Man movie video-game there was a cheat that would let you play as Spider-man in first-person.
That game was released in 2002, six years before Mirrors Edge.

Mirror's Edge 2!

And a Spiderman outfit option!

Though, I didn't think Faith was that flat chested...

She's close, tho. But that's okay, I think women of all sizes are beautiful. Never understood the mockery and hate Faith got for not having a huge chest.

More than a handful is a waste.

mirror edge team up with a spiderman game .. so out of reach but that would be a great game.

Pretty blatantly. I was looking at the text thinking "Where the hell is the video" for about a minute before I realised that I was scrolled down the page.

Not really. Can't see any similarities. I am assuming the first person view is more to distinguishing its self from the previous films. I assume the author doesn't now free running/parkour is popular and appeared in films even before Mirrors edge was released

slightly off topic: the most blatant use of same footage can be seen in the gif pointed out by someone in the comment section

I saw that last week, pretty hilarious but you've got to wonder about the sort of people who discover that stuff.

Inzo2436d ago

Personally I think that that is a huge complement for Mirrors edge
