'Amazing Spider-Man' Video Game Trailer Swings into E3
The action packed trailer for "The Amazing Spider-Man" made its way to E3 on Monday, showing audiences a first glimpse of Spidey villain Scorpion. The game swings onto shelves in three weeks on June 26.
Back story from Marvel:
Incredibly agile and twice as strong as Spider-Man himself, this personification of everything Alistaire Smythe aims to annihilate also boasts the ability to grab prey with one hand, then cut it in half with the pincer on the other. Scorpion's stinger houses the most toxic venom the world has ever seen, and he has been known to project it from long distances as well. As if that weren't lethal enough, he's just as likely to whip victims with his tail, which itself slings freely at ninety miles per hour.
Octavius was particularly pleased with one unexpected side effect of the "extra element" he added: No other cross-species derived outside of a human subject possesses anywhere near the intellect of Scorpion. A quick glance at his stoic face reveals his instinctively cunning nature, which in turn has prompted Scorpion to concentrate closely on--even learn, to a certain degree--human speech patterns. Though he currently "speaks" in unintelligible squeals, it seems only a matter of time before the humanity within him surfaces fully, including at least some degree of intelligent communication with (likely soon-to-be-dead) humans.
