Ever since Insomaniac revealed its Wolverine game two years ago, fans have wondered if it would be set in the same universe as the studio’s Spider-Man games. In an interview with It’s a bit funnySpider-Man 2 director Brian Intihar has confirmed that the answer is yes
When asked by host Greg Miller if it had been previously confirmed or denied whether or not Wolverine’s Spider-Men shared the same Earth, Intihar replied, “They’re all 1048. I think I got that right, but yeah.” Inthiar is referring to Earth-1048, which occupies the Marvel Universe’s superhero games Insomniac.

This means whether or not we’ll see any Spider-Man references in Wolverine, which doesn’t have a release window, but it’s still exciting news. Marvel’s Spider-Man’s New York City is full of references to other heroes like Avengers Tower, the Sanctum Sanctorum, and the Wakandan embassy, so it makes more sense to imagine Logan doing his job somewhere outside.
Aside from this update, we know little about Wolverine, which is a mature-rated title exclusive to the PlayStation 5. While we wait to learn more details, you can read this opinion on why I’d like to see both. The game series share the same universe.
