Amazing Spider-Man Writer Dan Slott On Why Peter Parker’s Marriage Will Never Return

21 March 2017 8:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This is the year of the Spider. With Tom Holland soon to take center stage in the McU in this year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man fans have never been happier. And yet, rumbling in the background, there’s still a long-running controversy – one that Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott waded into over the weekend.

In a heated discussion on the Comic Book Resources forum, Slott openly discussed the Spider-Man marriage – and the shocking events of One More Day…

What You Need To Know

It all began in 1987, when Stan Lee was attending a comic book convention. He was asked a simple question: Could Peter Parker and Mary-Jane ever get married? Well, back in the day Lee was writing a Spider-Man newspaper strip, and he decided to go with it. It wasn’t a “We have to do it” scenario – it was a “Why not?”

To Marvel’s surprise – and, in truth, »

Amazing Spider-Man #25 Review

15 March 2017 8:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In these days of launches and relaunches, it’s actually quite unusual for a Marvel comic to get to 25 issues. Let’s face it, though, if any series was going to do it – it’s Dan Slott’s Amazing Spider-Man. Incredibly, Slott joined the team of Amazing Spider-Man ten years ago, back in 2007, and in those ten years we’ve seen dramatic changes to Spider-Man‘s status quo. Under Slott’s direction, the franchise has broadened out more than ever before, with the “Spider-Verse” event launching other web-slingers into action; we now have a wider-than-ever spider-centric corner of the Marvel Universe, with spinoffs like Silk, Spider-Gwen and Spider-Man 2099.

A lot of writers tend to use an issue like this to complete a story, but not Dan Slott. He tied up “Dead No More: The Clone Conspiracy” in the last month, and now he’s moving on to the new arc, »

Speaking from personal experience, I will say that whenever an oversized anniversary issue hits stands that collectors will ready their wallets, regardless of whether they’ve been actively following the series in question. So, when Amazing Spider-Man #25 ships next month, expect it to fly off shelves even though it will likely be sold at a higher price when you factor in the knowledge that it will be 96 pages strong.

When it comes to content, readers can look forward to a 40-page main story in the form of the cleverly titled “The Osborn Identity.” As you can no doubt surmise, stalwart writer Dan Slott will reunite Peter Parker with his longtime nemesis Norman Osborn as a new storyline kicks off. Furthermore, fan favorite artist Stuart Immonen has been confirmed to join the party as well.

As for the other 56 pages, »

The Clone Conspiracy #5 Delivers A New Status Quo For Spider-Man Moving Forward

15 February 2017 6:21 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Today saw the release of The Clone Conspiracy #5, the final instalment of Dan Slott and Jim Cheung’s Spider-Man event. Reviews for the issue have been mixed so far, with many declaring it an unsatisfying and rushed conclusion to a story which probably could have done with at least another instalment or two so it could be told in a satisfying manner.

Regardless, the world of the wall-crawler has been left in a very intriguing place, as has the fate of Ben Reilly. While Peter Parker managed to stop the signal which would have killed not only the clones created by the Jackal but anyone within range of it, The Clone Conspiracy wrapped up with a number of classic Spider-Man villains back among the living. Unfortunately, their identities have been kept a mystery, but we can definitely expect them to return somewhere down the line, something which could have huge ramifications for the iconic hero. »

Comics: Marvel Going Back To Basics With Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-man

14 February 2017 6:58 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

We recently learned that Marvel is going to take a back to basics approach with their legacy characters in a bid to bring back longtime readers and make the Marvel Universe a little more recognisable, and the first proof of that comes with the launch of Chip Zdarsky and Adam Kubert's Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-ManKicking off in June, it's unclear what this means for The Amazing Spider-Man and Dan Slott's take on Peter Parker having his own company and going on globe-trotting adventures, but based on comments from Zdarsky, this definitely sounds like it could be the title many fans have been demanding for a while now. Here's an excerpt from his interview over at Entertainment Weekly: "The main book, Amazing Spider-Man, has kept things fresh by stretching the character and his situation. It’s still classic Spider-Man at its core, but transposed into new settings. With this book, »

The Clone Conspiracy doesn’t wrap up until later this month, but Marvel has already released a preview of The Clone Conspiracy: Omega, a one-shot which promises to deal with the fallout of the event. For those of you unfamiliar with what Spider-Man has been up to, his clone Ben Reilly has returned from the dead with the intent of resurrecting all his fallen foes and loved ones.

Morally, that’s something Peter Parker hasn’t been able to deal with, especially as the unhinged Ben’s plan now seems to involve turning everyone in the world into clones. How the tale wraps up is unclear at this stage, but we do know that Reilly is going to end up going back to being the Scarlet Spider.

Thankfully, the preview above does offer up »

It Appears As If Some Big Changes Will Be Made To Norman Osborn In Amazing Spider-Man

3 February 2017 2:57 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At the end of Superior Spider-Man, Norman Osborn has the Goblin Serum purged from his body, something which left the Green Goblin as just a normal man again. He managed to escape from Peter Parker at the time but has recently resurfaced as an arms dealer selling his Goblin tech to the highest bidder in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man.

Once The Clone Conspiracy wraps up, Norman is going to take centre stage in a storyline kicking off in the super-sized issue #25, as Dan Slott is joined by artist Stuart Immonen. Now, we’ve got a new preview page from the upcoming issue which seemingly reveals that the Green Goblin has undergone some pretty hideous changes since we last saw him. As you can see below, it appears as if Norman has been left horribly deformed by no longer having the serum coursing through his veins, and he now looks more goblin than man. »

New Spider-Man Series To Tackle Spider-Island And More

29 January 2017 12:31 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Spider-Man fans have a lot to look forward to this year. Not only is Tom Holland returning to headline his own film as the wall-crawler in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but Marvel Animation and Disney Xd are also hard at work on a new animated series which is set to premiere in July. Replacing Ultimate Spider-Man, we don’t know a whole lot about it just yet, but in a recent interview with Cbr, Marvel Animation Vice President Steve Wacker spilled some details.

“Another story we have coming up on the Spidey side… we’ll get to ‘Spider Island’ at some point,” he said. “That was a big Spider-Man story in publishing.”

For those who may not know, Spider-Island is an arc that saw “the inhabitants of Manhattan Island mysteriously gaining powers similar to Spider-Man,” only with some pretty nasty side effects. That’s not all, though, as Wacker also mentioned that »

Marvel Animation VP Says New Series Will Tackle Spider-island, Also Wants To Adapt Superior Spider-man

29 January 2017 7:56 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Speaking to Cbr about the finale of Avengers: Ultron Revolution, Marvel VP of Animation Stephen Wacker disclosed that the upcoming new Spider-Man TV show will look to adapt 2011's Spider-Island crossover which saw normal residents of Manhattan gain Spider-Man's abilities but slowly begin to mutate into the Man-Spider version of the wall-crawler.  "Another story we have coming up on the Spidey side… we’ll get to ‘Spider Island’ at some point.  That was a big Spider-Man story in publishing." Another modern Spider-Man story Wacker wants to tackle is 2013's The Superior Spider-Man which saw Doc Ock swap bodies with Peter Parker but in the process, become motivated by Peter's memories to become a better Spider-Man than Peter ever was.  "The big one for me [personally] would be ‘Superior Spider-Man'.  That was the last big story I worked on in the comics side with Dan Slott. I’m not quite sure how we get there, »

Spider-Man Is On The Run In First Look At The Clone Conspiracy #5

20 January 2017 7:15 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel has released a first look at The Clone Conspiracy #5, the final chapter of Dan Slott and Jim Cheung’s Spider-Man event series. In the recently released fourth instalment, the Jackal revealed his plan to turn everyone on Earth into a clone, a bizarre twist which will have to be addressed here before he returns to his heroic ways in his own solo series.

In the sneak peek below, the clones (and regular people) are transforming into Carrions – broken down, mutated versions of clones – before they “die” and are then brought back by Ben Reilly. This is a good way of removing all of the returning characters from the board, though you have to believe that at least a few will end up sticking around.

Thankfully, Uncle Ben won’t be among them, though it very much looks like Gwen Stacy might as she betrays Peter Parker. As you no doubt know, »

Peter Parker Confronts Gwen Stacy In The Amazing Spider-Man #23 Preview

12 January 2017 8:05 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the biggest shocks in The Clone Conspiracy came when we learned that a resurrected Gwen Stacy had been working with the Jackal (secretly Ben Reilly) the whole time as he enacts a scheme to bring back Peter Parker’s greatest enemies and loved ones from the grave. Now, those two will finally come face to face in next week’s issue #23 of The Amazing Spider-Man.

While the wall-crawler has come across various versions of his greatest love over the years, this is supposedly the real deal, and one of Spider-Man’s most heartbreaking defeats came when she was murdered by the Green Goblin. However, as you can see in the preview below, Peter’s having a hard time accepting that she’s his Gwen and not just another clone who shares her memories.

New Ultimate Spider-man Featurette Teases Series Finale And A Giant Doctor Octopus

5 January 2017 3:02 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man will be coming to an end this month after four seasons on air. The series was - without a doubt -  a very different take on everyone's favourite wallcrawler. While most animated series featuring the character had him flying solo, Ultimate set the hero up as a S.H.I.E.L.D. trainee, leading a team of other teenage superheroes featuring Luke Cage, Nova, Iron Fist, and White Tiger. The show wasn't exactly a hit with older members of Spidey's fanbase, but still made a lot of creatively bold choices such as making Mary Jane Watson into Carnage, adapting Dan Slott's Spider-Verse storyline, changing the identities of many members of the rogues gallery, and much more. In a new featurette, the cast and crew of the series reflect on their time making the show, along with previewing the finale, which will see Spider-Man square off »
