The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a real thing and is being developed by Beenox. It’s going to be a movie tie-in, so I’m not sure about the quality of the game but here’s a teaser trailer.
It is a third-person action game and will feature an open-world free-roaming Manhattan. It also features a reputation system which will reward players for fighting crime. You won’t feel like it’s a pointless activity ever again.
