“When our friends at Insomniac Games and PlayStation set out to create Marvel’s Spider-Man, our collective goal was to tell a story that would stand alongside the wall-crawler’s greatest adventures,” said Bill Rosemann, VP & Creative Director, Marvel Games. “Spider-Man’s awesome fans demand and hunger for that magic mix of action, drama, romance, humor and pathos that Marvel’s most talented creators have woven through his best stories. Did we succeed in our goal? Now, whether you’ve played the game or not, you can judge for yourself as the Marvel’s Spider-Man Script Book takes you behind the scenes with the complete script, amazing artwork and insightful quotes from the creators themselves! This is Marvel’s first ever book publishing the script of a video game, so you can also be a part of history as we swing into what we hope is a worthy addition to the web-slinger’s spectacular library.”
“The Marvel’s Spider-Man Script Book represents a colossal collaborative effort between some of the most creative and hardest working folks in the entertainment industry from Insomniac Games, PlayStation, Marvel Games, and beyond,” said Eric Monacelli, Director of Production, Marvel Games. “The sheer amount of detail – a delicate and intricate web of connective narrative threads – that needs to go into the dialogue, action, and drama of a video game has no equal in any other medium. I don’t believe a video game script has ever been compiled into a script book format such as this so it’s truly a landmark celebration and exploration of what it takes to make a remarkable and memorable original story.”
