Marvel announced, via EW, another Secret Wars tie-in that will change the course of one of their most controversial decisions. In what’s being billed as “The Last Spider-Man Story”, Dan Slott and Andy Kubert will bring back Peter Parker’s marriage and child in The Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows.
A lot of information was teased in EW’s interview with Dan Slott, including possible returns of Eddie Brock and other classic characters from Spidey’s history. Here’s a few of the highlights:
“There are legions of Spider-Man fans that arepassionate about changes that have happened to Spider-Man continuity,” says Renew Your Vows writer (and current Spidey scribe) Dan Slott. “They are upset that the baby went missing, that the marriage went away. Spider-Man has been around for fifty years, and the marriage was around for twenty-five. So now we’re seven or eight years into a world without a married Spider-Man. It’s a big itch that people want scratched.”
“You haven’t seen Spider-Man’s classic villains the way you know and love—I wouldn’t be surprised to see Eddie Brock as Venom in this story,” teases Slott. “Or Sergei Kravinoff as Kraven the Hunter in this story. There’s going to be a lot of bullets in the gun for things you wanted to see in a Spider-Man story that you haven’t seen in a while. This is the ultimate classic feel. This is the last Eddie Brock story. The stakes have never been higher for Peter Parker because he’s never had so much to lose. So he has never been this close to the edge. And these are the Last Days.”
Renew Your Vows is set in a region of the world known as The Regency—it’s named for the mysterious villain behind this series. The book looks as though it will also give details to the future of the character post Secret Wars. Slott himself teased “elements from this story will go on into the next incarnation.”
Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows goes on sale June 3. Here’s the EW preview.
