Skuespiller bag Spider-Man kommenterer på kontroversielt skift af udseende
I forbindelse med lanceringen af Spider-Man: Miles Morales, og derigennem en dedikeret PS5-udgave af originalen, der traf Insomniac den kontroversielle beslutning at ændre Peter Parkers udseende ret markant. Insomniac selv mener at det er for at bringe karakterens udseende tættere på stemmeskuespilleren, Yuri Lowenthals, udseende.
Indtil nu har vi dog ikke fået skuespillerens egen reaktion på den her proces, og i et interview med ComicBook siger han følgende:
"I did know it was coming, and I did agree with all the reasons [Insomniac] were going ahead with it. I know that people, once they fall in love with something, for you to change that thing is very hard... and understandably so! There are a lot of people who will always love that original thing best, but I think the reasons they did it were sound, and going forward, the game will benefit."
"I understand it's also especially hard when you form an emotional attachment. Playing a game is playing a game, and you get used to things, but the story and characters from that game, we all grew to love them," Lowenthal continued. "When you've formed that emotional attachment and that thing changes, it's hard. I'm hoping people in the end will understand it was done for the good of the game and will understand it's for the good of the franchise. We'll all get used to it!"
Der findes dog også dem der direkte har påpeget i scenesammenligninger, at Peter direkte har mistet detalje og narrativ dybde igennem det her skift. Hvad synes du om hele beslutningen?
