In an attempt to shake things up and drive up sales, writer Dan Slott revealed that in the upcoming Superior Spider-Man title, Peter Parker will no longer be the Wall Crawler. We don’t know who this new Spider-Man will be yet, but whoever it is will be a lot edgier and darker than the Web Slinger that we’re accustomed to.
We’ve been through all of this before, most recently with Bucky taking over the Captain America mantle and Dick Grayson becoming Batman for a bit. We don’t actually expect this change to last long, and we’re sure Peter Parker will be back sooner than later, especially with more Spider-Man movies on the way. But with Slott at the helm, we’re hoping for a solid Spidey story at the very least.
