Peter Parker will return in April with an all new Amazing Spider-Man #1. Writer Dan Slott revealed that he always knew that Peter would return but had to the keep the lie going for a full year.
“To do that for a solid year of my life, that’s the hardest thing I’ve had to do — to look small children in the eye at a convention and lie to them,” says Slott. “One of them with an honest-to-God Little League uniform and a quivering lip. Inside, part of me was dying.”
The only person he revealed the secret to was actor Andrew Garfield when he visited the set of Amazing Spider-Man 2 during the summer.
Editor Axel Alonso wasn’t thrilled with Slott’s original pitch of Doc Ock swapping minds. “It would have been great if you took a photo of my face at that time. I was not very thrilled,” says Marvel Editor in Chief Axel Alonso of Slott’s initial pitch, during an editorial retreat several years ago. “Let’s just say that as cynical as the hard-core fanboy was, I was more cynical.”
Alonso also said, “I do feel people will appreciate him a little more after this. I do think people have been taking him for granted.”
Slott also states we may be in for more surprises with Peter, “We’ve gone over 30 issues without Peter Parker, so when we let him out of that box and he gets to put on that costume again and he gets to swing through the sky, it’s going to be the greatest feeling,” says Slott.“But there’s a twist. There’s always a twist.”
