Spider-Man's life is about to get a lot more complicated.
A teaser trailer for the first DLC expansion for the upcoming Spider-Man video game on the PlayStation 4 focuses on master thief and longtime Peter Parker love interest Felicia Hardy, better known to comic book fans as the Black Cat.
"Catch me if you can," smirks the antihero as she leads Spidey on a breathless chase through New York City.
Appropriately titled "The Heist", the planned DLC is scheduled to be released on October 23 with a second installment ominously titled "Turf War" scheduled sometime in November while a third expansion titled "Silver Lining" -- presumably related to previously revealed mercenary Silver Sable -- is scheduled for sometime in December.
First created in the pages of July 1979's Amazing Spider-Man #194 by writer Marv Wolfman and artist Dave Cockrum, Black Cat frequently has played on both sides of the law with her occupation as a burglar. Engaging in an on/off-again relationship with Spider-Man for much of her character history, the thief offers Peter Parker the temptation of embracing his power and abandoning the responsibility.
It will be interesting to see how the complicated duo's dynamic unfolds when the DLC pack is released next month.
Marvel’s Spider-Man is developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony exclusively for the PlayStation 4. It is scheduled for release on September 7.
