Rumor: Spider-Man: Web of Shadows being introduced this week

Considering that Spider-Man 3 sold roughly one hojillion copies despite its dubious quality, it's not a huge surprise that Activision wouldn't want to wait for Spider-Man 4 to hit theaters before its next game. First we had the brawling-centric Spider-Man: Friend or Foe and soon, according to Gamervision we'll be playing Spider-Man: Web of Shadows.

GV says the info comes from an insider at GameStop, which will reportedly be putting marketing materials up for the game this week. Now, what, exactly is Spider-Man: Web of Shadows? We have no clue. We've heard rumors of a Spidey game subtitled "Red Vs. Black," and if this is that same project we can likely expect some symbiote action and maybe even a visit from Venom. Again though, that's pure conjecture. But it sounds like we might be hearing something more concrete very soon.
