MJ in the game is a reporter for the Daily Bugle and she discovered plans for an operation called "Devil's Breath." She will collaborate with Peter to find the connection between the plans and Li's criminal activities.

Mary Jane's gameplay will likely involve stealth and be taking photographs for her investigation. Bryan Intihar stated that the latter will give players a new perspective in the game's narrative storytelling, adding a little detective work to balance its action-packed gameplay [VIDEO].

"MJ is a smart, savvy reporter with The Daily Bugle and she's investigating suspicious activity happening around the city," Intihar wrote. "She won't be a bystander either, so yes, players will even play MJ for key moments."

Insomniac Games was able to give video game fans a glimpse of MJ's gameplay at the Paris Games Week event, and it will not take long for them to launch a full game trailer for her soon.

Doctor Strange appearance teased?

Reddit username "bigfatlove101" posted a screencap of the new "Spider-Man" PS4 trailer and highlighted a familiar building structure in New York. The building in question is said to be the Sanctum Sanctorum, the home of Doctor Stephen Strange.

This led to several fan theories that #Doctor Strange could make an appearance in the new Spidey title and other famous buildings from the Marvel Comics will pop up in the game as well.

Of course, there is a chance that the Sanctum was placed there to give video game and comic book fans a nod the Marvel Universe, and it will not be related to the game's plot.

Marvel Games Vice President Mike Jones told GameSpot that the "Spider-Man" game was inspired by the "Batman Arkham" series, and they aim to apply these elements to their original concepts and story. #Spider Man Ps4
