Spider-Man 2 is not the first project by Tony Todd

This is not the first time when Tony Todd is lending his voice to a character in a video game. He has lent his voice to tons of different characters in video games in the past, including Marvel’s Blade, Night Staker, Viper, and Dota 2’s Dragon Knight. He has also worked as a narrator in The Legend of Dragoon. Apart from all this, he has also worked in Admiral Tommy Briggs in Black Ops Cold War and in Episode Two and Half-Life: Alyx.

The trailer looks quite promising. And the general take is the game will be worth the long wait. Spider-Man 2 is all set to release in 2023, but the exact date of the release is still a mystery.
