Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Actor Has Had Enough of ‘Whiny’ Fan Complains, Asks Haters to Get Over It

After the release of 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, created by Beenox, the hype for Spider-Man games was next to nothing. Four years later, Insomniac Games managed to create one of the best Spider-Man games of all time, Marvel’s Spider-Man.

The changes were made in 2020’s Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered

The game narrates the iconic character’s original narrative which is inspired by the long-running comic book storyline, with some elements from other media. The game was a massive hit, forcing Sony to buy Insomniac Games. In 2020, the studio created two games, the highly anticipated Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and the remastered version of 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man. While fans were highly satisfied with the game focused on Miles Morales, there was a major change in the remastered game: Peter Parker’s face.

Voice actor Yuri Lowenthal, who voices Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man video games, has asked fans to get over the fact that they changed Peter Parker’s face. The voice actor said (via ComicBook),

“The performance was the same for me. I got over it as soon as they said ‘Hey, we wanna make this change so that the facial animation is better.’ I said ‘I’m all in!’ I don’t care if he looks like a goblin, if my performance is better, then I’m in. I’m kind of tired of talking about it, to be honest, because I think everything that needs to be said has been said. Some people will take longer to get over it, some people will never get over it. The one positive thing I take away from this experience is that people connected emotionally so hard and so deeply in the first game that they’re mad when they feel that person changes. I can only be so mad about that because it worked, not the change thing, but you connected with the character which is great. Now, get over it!”

Peter Parker’s face was changed in 2020’s Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered because it was necessary for better facial animation. Fans who were used to the old face were highly disappointed, but as Lowenthal said, they have to get over it at one point.
