...well, it could be a few things. What appears to be the final box art for Activision's Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions is here, thanks to Gamefly, apparently revealing the fourth, still unofficially revealed incarnation of Spidey. And he's black.
That black suit version of Spider-man could be a throwback to the post-Secret Wars webslinger, when Peter Parker was the owner of a dark, alien symbiote that could transform itself into a multitude of costumes. It's the same suit that eventually bonded with Eddie Brock to become the villain known as Venom.
Or it could just be a black costume, not a sentient unitard and mask, but where's the fun in that? All we know is that Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions will go black and that Activision will be talking about the game in greater detail at the San Diego Comic-Con next week. "Four Worlds, One Story: Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions the Video Game" happens next Friday and we expect official confirmation of what that fourth dimension is by then.
Activision has already confirmed that Spider-man will take the form of Amazing, Noir and 2099 in the multi-platform game due out this September.
