What ‘Spider-Man 2’s Post-Credits Scenes Mean for the Next Chapter

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is an emotional rollercoaster, and some major plots still aren’t completely wrapped up by the end of the game. That’s where the game’s two post-credits scenes come in. They feature some characters we’ve met before—and some newcomers.

How does Spider-Man 2 end?

Spider-Man 2 has a bittersweet ending rather than a happy one. The world is saved and Peter, MJ, and Miles are all physically fine, but Peter especially has a heavy loss to bear. His best friend Harry Osborn wasn’t permanently lost to the Venom symbiote as everyone feared, but getting him out of it put him in a coma—and he might never wake up. That’s triggered Harry’s father Norman into a huge rage aimed squarely at everyone’s favorite web-slinging hero.

The first Spider-Man 2 post-credits scene

So the first post-credits scene picks up with—you guessed it—Norman. He walks into the green-hued Raft prison and stops opposite the cell of a man who is writing in a book with a shaking hand.

It’s Otto Octavius, a.k.a Doc Ock! His degenerative disease is taking a toll on him, and he’s also not at all happy to see Norman. Norman wants something from Ock, though: the identities of the Spider-Men. “They ruined my son,” he tells the decidedly unmoved Otto, who responds with, “Good. We all have to experience loss.”

An unsettled Norman asks Otto what he’s writing. Otto holds up the book and declares, “The final chapter.” Looks like we’ll have a Norman-Ock team-up for the next game—possibly the last in a trilogy?

The second Spider-Man 2 post-credits scene

Post-credits scene number two is a bit longer. First, a cute scene unfolds at the Morales household. Miles has invited his new girlfriend Hailey over for a meal with his family, and Rio is awaiting the date Miles failed to meet early on in the game. Miles and Hailey go to Miles’ bedroom to check out his finally completed college essay and the two of them kiss. Awww!

Then they’re interrupted by a knock on the door. The rest of the game might have prepared you for there to be a jumpscare once the door is opened, but nope: it’s simply a friendly-looking man named Albert. The subtitles give his full name as “Albert Moon.” Wait, “Moon”? Now that’s a name very familiar to Spider-Man fans. But before we have a chance to digest that, Albert introduces his daughter … Cindy! We don’t see her face, but Cindy Moon, a.k.a. the superhero Silk, is Spider-Man 2’s final cameo. So what does this mean for the next game?

Who is Cindy Moon?

Silk from Marvel Comics
(Marvel Comics)

Cindy Moon/Silk is a young woman who was bitten by the same spider that bit Peter Parker. She has superpowers similar to his, as well as an eidetic memory—which means she has the ability to recall things she’s seen in vivid detail.

Moon was created by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos and made her debut in the Spider-Man comics in 2014. So she hasn’t actually been around all that long! Unfortunately for the many fans who were looking forward to a new Asian-American superhero with her own story to tell, Silk almost immediately began a very problematic sexual relationship with Peter thanks to the “pheromones” that linked them—something that initially informed much of her arc. Slott later apologized on Twitter for writing a story that, in his own words, “unintentionally played into racial stereotypes.”

Silk has evolved as a character since then and she’s very popular now. In fact, she may be getting her own live-action TV show at some point! Between that and her almost guaranteed appearance in Marvel’s Spider-Man 3, it’s a good time to be a fan of Cindy Moon.
