Looks like Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has recast the role of Harry Osborn, with star Scott Porter revealing he will not return for the sequel in a now-deleted tweet. Porter, who also plays Heimdall to perfection in God of War Ragnarok, alluded to the fact that developer Insomniac Games had decided to go “photo real” with its casting in the hotly anticipated PS5 successor, and “the difference between me and Harry’s ages was too much to overcome I believe”.
It’s a particularly interesting comment, as during the transition from Marvel’s Spider-Man to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, Insomniac Games controversially changed the face of Peter Parker to better match voice actor Yuri Lowenthal’s performance capture.
Nevertheless, those of you who’ve played Marvel’s Spider-Man and its spin-off Miles Morales will know that Harry is poised to have a huge role in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Porter admitted that while he’s “bummed” not to be returning, it’s going to be an “incredible game”. He’s since removed the tweets.
