It seems we'll be donning our tight-fitting Spider-Man costumes and matching cavalier attitudes sooner than expected, as we head off to the store to purchase Spider-Man: Web of Shadows.

Keep in mind, this is not the Wii version Take note, webheads: a new Spidey game is being made for the Wii (along with those other systems nobody cares about).
