He will probably exist in the same universe as insomniac's spiderman. i remember a while back when insomniac said they want spiderman to be like the tony stark of their in built universe. i have absolute trust in insomniac to deliver something truly epic in this universe.

No thanks. I would prefer a more mature tone and a less arcadey experience.

What does that have to do with occupying the same universe. Wolverine isn't the typical vigilante styled hero. He doesn't have to follow the same style and not sure what is a arcade experience about Spiderman. At this point people just say things to say things. I like arcadey but Spiderman is a open world action game. What is arcade about it? Could call it a beat em up as opposed to arcadey but that'd be about the closest

I don’t mind arcade feel but I want the gore and grit themes. The only reason you would put them in the same universe is to eventually get them in the same game. So instead of starting with gore and grit and moving to a safer rating to combine them they just start with a safer rating and that sucks imo.

Yah let him do his own thing not everything needs to be connected

Connected doesn't mean they cant have their own independent stories. It just means the same event and characters can exist in both, but isn't required.

I wonder how traversal would work for wolverine? Fast travel by taxi? Or maybe his motorbike?

Spiderman throws him across the map and he just waits to heal

I disagree. To get them in the same universe you would have to tone the savagery of Wolverine down. I don’t want robot enemies I want to see limbs flying. I love that insomniac has the license but I hope it has a more “mature” nature. I want berserker Wolverine not the cartoon show. I would buy either of them though.

1. I am encouraged by the carnage and bloody hands shown in the trailer that Insomniac is taking the more brutal route.

2. I do not believe Insomniac would make a pitch to Marvel and Sony to tackle a Wolverine game and then make a game that is not true to the essence of the character and what they know fans want.

3. Insomniac hasn't put a foot wrong in a very long time and they are an incredible studio.

4. I believe this game will be incredible....we just have to wait for it.

1. Good point. But does that shatter the possibility of a shared universe? They can exist in the same comic book universe because comics are not regulated like games let alone licensed games.

2. I agree
3. I agree
4. I agree
