KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Peter Parker, the alter ego of Spiderman, is about to die, according to a report from the Hollywood Reporter Wednesday.
Parker “loses a major battle with Doctor Opus,” the Hollywood Reporter said.
But, it apparently doesn’t mark the end of Spiderman. According to an interview in USA TODAY, Spiderman will take on a ‘superior’ role — and will launch on Jan. 9.
With the new launch, the franchise is about to take a darker turn, sources told the Hollywood Reporter.
Amazing Spider-Man No. 700 came out Wednesday.
