Ok, so ever since Marvel and Sony worked out their deal to bring Spider-Man into the MCU, fans have been torn about what to do with the character.

How so? Well, fans REALLY don’t want another origin story for Spider-Man, especially if its Peter Parker, since we already had that “recently” with Amazing Spider-Man. But that’s not all…some are asking if Peter Parker should be Spider-Man at all in the MCU. Some fans are saying that Ultimate Spider-Man Miles Morales should take the role.

When a fan asked Chief Creative Officer for Marvel Joe Quesada about what would be the most important aspect of Spider-Man that needs to be done right in the MCU, the CCO had a very interesting response:

“The trick to making any incarnation of Spider-Man great, whether comics, animation or film is Peter Parker. Get Peter’s character right and the rest falls into place.”

This is very interesting, as Quesada would know about what Marvel wants to do with the character in the movies. Meaning WHO would be under the mask. At face value, this could be definitive confirmation that Peter Parker will be Spider-Man in the MCU. But as in all things, we’ll just have to see.
