The Marvel's Spider-Man series is a video game franchise created by Insomniac Games in collaboration with Marvel Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It is based on the Marvel Comics superhero, Spider-Man, featuring characters from the Marvel Universe.

The franchise spans video games released on the Playsation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles, as well as comic books and novels, all of which taking place in Earth-1048. The video games are open world action adventure games in which the player primarily controls original Spider-Man and one of his allies, as he battles a variety of villains from the Marvel Universe including the Sinister Six, and helps out the residents of New York City. The gameplay is reminiscent of previous games based on Spider-Man developed by other studios, as well as incorporating other elements from Insomniac Games' previous work.

Marvel's Wolverine, a standalone PlayStation 5 game inspired by the X-Men comics and starring one of its members, Wolverine, was announced at the same time as the second Spider-Man game in September 2021. Despite there being no obvious references to the Spider-Man game series in its reveal, it was confirmed they are a part of the same universe.[1]
