Spider-Man has gone through a lot of casting changes in film franchises, but now the character is getting a new face for a video game. Insomniac announced that for the remastered version of Marvel’s Spider-Man coming to PlayStation 5, it has recast the face model for Peter Parker.
The announcement about changes in the PS5 version notes that the studio has replaced face model John Bubniak with Ben Jordan. The studio said that Jordan is a better match for Yuri Lowenthal’s facial capture performance. He looks pretty noticeably different, too–more boyish, like the RC Cola version of Tom Holland.
A video shows a familiar early scene: Peter’s first time seeing his mentor Dr. Octavius’ robotic arms, as remastered with Jordan’s face.
