Will peter be replaced as Spiderman?

I heard that there's going to be some big changes in ASM 700 and Slott said he's done all he can with peter as spiderman. So will peter be replaced? Personally I'm fine with the idea. Peter been spidey for 50 years it's time for something new. However I don't want it to be alpha. Maybe introduce Miles Morales in earth 616 and make him spidey. I'd be fine with that

Just read Ultimate Spider-man then. ASM would fail with anyone but Parker.

I think Miles should take over, IF and i said IF, Peter gets replaced. No Alpha he FAILS.

It's pointless to replace Peter. The dude is barely above legal drinking age, killing him now would cut him short his whole life. Not to mention he still has 100 stories that need telling and 100 loose ends to tie up. If Slott can't think of anything else to do with Pete, let someone else write the story, don't kill the main character for no reason.

I don't see a need to replace Peter.

Posted by thespidey307

Geez, I hope not. Ultimate is already replaced, I don't want Amazing replaced too.

where do you people come up with this stuff?! why would they replace peter? shits and giggles? have you even said it out loud?

Posted by KainScion

@PaperDemon: how can miles take over? HOW? he has nothing that can make him stay in 616. he has no friends, family, a home there. it wouldnt make sense.

@PaperDemon: My fanboy RAGE would know no bounds if he is replace by anyone. Anyway Ben Reilly>Miles Morales. 
@KainScion: They did it to Fury they can come up with a reason. 
 
 
One of my theories are that cure they used on Spider-Island and Lizard will take his powers.  
 He will be forced to be Bruce to Terry Mcginnis with Alpha.

@Dernman: as long as peter is spider-man in the movies he will not be replaced

Posted by InnerVenom123

The only reason people even bother thinking this will happen is because of Miles.

Edited by Dernman
@KainScion: I can see them making a Miles movie though. :/  
After this set of movies are over I mean. 
 
 
Edit: Especially if they can't get the rights to Peter back so they can solidly tie him into Avengers movies.

That would be the stupidest thing Marvel has ever done in my opinion, we're talking Spider-man here. Marvel's main image and most focused hero. Millions of Spidey fans all over the world would despise this. The only reason the theory of having Peter replaced even exists is because of Miles from the Ultimate universe. It would be so stupid to replace/kill Spider-man for his 50th anniversary. I mean talk about the complete opposite of respect for the character. If the Fantastic four can stay the same despite being the first Marvel heroes ever, than they should keep Spidey the same. And the whole "done all the can with Peter" thing could mean that Dan is just sad to be leaving Spidey as a writer. YOU JUST CAN'T REPLACE PETER. That's like trying to pass someone else as Superman or Batman. Yes its been done, but never in the main continuity series. I can handle an alternate universe replacement like Miles, but the mainstream universe? Hell no. I believe Dan Slott respects Peter as Spidey enough to keep him as Spidey by the end of the 50th anniversary. I can't look at any media of Spidey the same again if they permenately replace him because I'll be thinking, "DAMN IT! He's not Spidey anymore." It'll completely ruin me as a Spidey fan and I will lose so much respect for Marvel it isn't even funny. 50 YEARS, Spidey's been with us, and they wanna replace him. That would be so friggin' stupid. I pray they do an actually cool twist. Cuz I will be crushed as a major fan of Spidey if Peter is killed or replaced. The very thought of it makes me wanna punch Marvel in the face if I could.

@Dernman: Im pretty the rights are for Spider-man not Peter Parker though.

Spider-Man that is Peter Parker. Not Spider-Man that is Miles Morales with a totally different back story and powers. Lawyers are sleazy and twist things like that.

Can you provide some source that shows us where Slott stated "he can't do anything more with Peter as Spiderman"?  
(surprised nobody else has asked for it)

@Dernman: They wouldn't be able to call him Spider-Man.

I was talking about them making an argument two Spider-Man were not the same because of power and origin so the can use the name. 
Kinda like how. Several characters share the same name. Like Prodigy from X-Men and Prodigy Heavy Hitters. Nightwing Batman and Nightwing Chris Kent. 
 
Not saying it would work but they could try. Things like that get iffy and we don't know the exact wording or conditions of the deal. There is already been talk by Marvel about some how tying Spider-Man universe into the next Avengers movie. Marvel wouldn't do that if they didn't have some leverage.

Simply consider economics. Do you remember the backlash from Ultimate Spidey to Miles shift? If anything changes in the 616 it will be that Peter has to kill Alpha for the good of all. As far as I know, that would be the first Spidey kill, making it (controversial) like Slott says

Not gonna happen.

Posted by Dhor

the problem with Spider-man is that he hasan`t evolved in 50 years at all . the only thing he did was marry mary jane but that was reconed so...i don`t whant him replaced but some changes to his character would be a nice addition

If Pete's not in it, I won't read it. Nuff said.

I think I might give up on reading Spider-man comics if that were to happen......

Edited by Strider92

He said he's done with Peter being Spider-man. Maybe Pete's going for a change of identity?

Pete has been Dusk, Prodigy, Ricochet and Hornet in the past. He probably kills Alpha and then feels he can't call himself Spider-man anymore as Spider-man didn't kill. Whenever he goes into morals off mode he refers to himself as the Spider. Maybe that's what this is about. He even said he couldn't face being Spdier-man if he fails "his no-one dies" mantra. Maybe its simply the fact he's going to go to the dark side of the force as it were lol.

This quote was made by Steve Wacker in 2011. I don't recall Dan saying anything of the sort.

I'd like to see where he said that "he's done all he can with peter as spiderman" because this is what he said to Newsarama this week and that doesn't sound like someone who has ran out of ideas or is done writing Spider-man or Peter Parker

Nrama: It's clear at this point that in the near future, there are a lot of big creative team shifts coming at Marvel, especially with long-tenured runs. You've written a lot of Spider-Man at this point — though obviously you're having the time of your life, is it possible that maybe the end could be on the horizon, or do you still have long-term plans?

Slott: I will never leave Spider-Man willingly. [Laughs.] How could you? If you ever see me not on Spider-Man, someone had their hands tightly clamped on my ankles and dragged me off—and those long grooves in the floor? That’s where I dug my fingers in—‘cause I just didn’t want to go. But everything has to end sometime, and I'm very aware that I don't get to write Spider-Man forever. I'm very aware of that.

These are the salad days. The rest of my life, I'm going to look back and go, "That was the time I was working on Spider-Man." It's going to be very hard to top that.

@danhimself: It wasn't Dan who said it. This was all caused by Steve Wacker in 2011 who said this was Peter last year as Spider-man and they had done all the could with him. I don't know why people think it was Slott -.o

@Strider92: if they were to replace Peter Parker then it would seriously be tied with the single dumbest thing that Marvel has ever done and you could summarize both things with the same sentence...they replaced Peter Parker....they did it once back in the Clone Saga and it caused a huge amount of fans to leave Marvel....if they haven't learned from their mistakes then I really do feel sorry for them.....Slott's amazing writing on ASM is the only thing keeping me at Marvel at this point so if something like this happens then I'll be done reading Marvel and I've never said anything like that before so you know it's true

Edited by Strider92

@danhimself: What i'm saying is that this was well before Slott took over and Marvel and its not like this is the first time this has been said but they've never done anything so why should they do it now? Especially now Slott is doing such a great job. It would be imbecilic. They won't kill Spider-man because of: Slotts writing/the new movie/the fact that ASM is basically their biggest grossing solo character title.

If Miles goes within 100yards of the 616-verse I will find Bendis lol!!! I will find him!!!

Maybe it's because... (gasp) Marvel isn't exactly known for pleasing fans. XD If they were, they wouldn't put out so many events to the point that they're not events anymore.

Gotta agree with you though, danhimself, the only Marvel titles I think are worth picking up ATM are ASM, Daredevil, Fantastic 4, and Ultimate Spiderman. Well, those and I can see Hickman's Avengers being added to the list, if it's really good. Due to financial problems, I only pick up about 5-6 titles, so I ended up dropping ASM due to it's biweekly release schedule and the fact that they're only 32 pages long for $3.99. That was my last Marvel book (I read Daredevil through trade form at my library).

Theres only 2 guys that I will ever accept as substitutes for Peter.

Ben Reilly:

Miguel O'Hara:

Either of these two I could accept.They're both beast.

‎"What I can clearly say is that in the 20-odd years I've been working in this industry, I have never done something as big to a character as what we're doing to Spider-Man in #700. I'm very serious — after #700 comes out, I'm not doing interviews for a bit. I'm not sticking my head up out of the hole. People are going to be like, "What have you done?" and the message on my machine will just say, "Keep reading.""

and then I'll happen as with Daredevil in Shadowland leading to a reborn and blah blah make sense ;)

@Funrush: Oh, sorry. I meant Slott not scott. As in Dan Slott the writer that said "he's done as much as he can with Peter Parker" He'll probably be moved to another series in Marvel NOW unless he has a lot of plans for Alpha.
