PlayStation players are keen to reprise web-slinging their way through New York City’s underworld in the latest installment of the game. However, the playerbase is divided on the matter of the face model for Mary Jane in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Some opine that her looks are unappealing and aged. Others find her depiction realistic and attribute the change to enhanced graphics and facial capture techniques.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 aspires to do justice to our friendly neighbourhood superhero’s ‘spectacular’ reputation. This forthcoming sequel is only available for PlayStation, and will not be released for PS4, due to its PS5 restriction. Those who pre-ordered the game for its extra outfits and bonuses can start preloading it right this minute and start their adventure within the week.

The sequel to Insomnaic’s game seems impressive in every aspect. The combat mechanics seem to have been improved, the storyline is as much about the person as it is about the superhero, and it features one of Spiderman’s notable villains – Venom. Despite all these attractions, the depiction of Mary Jane has not been received well by certain fans.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Mary Jane Face Model

The role of Mary Jane in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is rendered by Stephanie Tyler Jones. She also modelled for Mary Jane in the 2018 game. In a response to fan queries, James Stevenson, the Community Manager at Insomniac confirmed this in July. However, please note that face model and voice actor are separate roles. While Stephanie Tyler Jones represents the face of Mary Jane, Laura Bailey lends her voice to the character. Despite the continuity, some Reddit users have criticised her appearance. One user bluntly commented, ‘she looks terrible’ while another amusingly remarked that she looked 46.

User Low_Thick was rather blunt in their criticism, stating that Insomniac turned her into a substandard Lois Lane, lacking in charm, proficiency, and importance. Many players expressed their dissatisfaction by using the phrase ‘she’s unattractive.’ Some even compared her to a quintessential Karen. CaptainBlob sighted the most amusing critique, saying she is oddly reminiscent of Lord Farquad from Shrek.

However, not all responses are negative. Some players have come to the defence of the face model. User dontjudgejoshplz mentioned that the in-game model looks much better, and the unflattering impression was likely due to the specific picture.

This is not the first instance where Spider-Man fans have voiced harsh critiques. Some fans are still discontent with the change in face models for Peter Parker. Some gamers are even disgruntled about the game’s duration, a lingering issue from the ridiculous ‘puddlegate’ event of 2018.

Insomniac’s sequel will be launching on October 20th and is currently exclusive to the PS5. However, there is still hope for a future PC release.
