Yuri Lowenthal Speaks Out on Peter Parker’s New Face in Spider-Man 2
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 actor Yuri Lowenthal has had it with players complaining about Peter Parker’s (now-not-so) new face. The character was recast while remastering Spider-Man PS4, which ended up being quite an unpopular change.
Visual Impact on Performance
Speaking to ComicBook.com, Lowenthal said that the new visual didn’t impact his performance, and he personally wouldn’t have cared if his character looked like a “goblin” instead. While he understood why the change didn’t go down well with some fans, Lowenthal says it’s time to move on.
- Emotional Connection: The actor appreciates the strong emotional connection fans had with the character in the first game.
- Accepting Change: Lowenthal urges fans to accept the change and move forward.
“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,” Lowenthal said. “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!”
Character Creation and Performance
In a previous interview with ComingSoon.net, Lowenthal emphasized that his character’s visual appearance is just one piece of the puzzle when it comes to creating a character. While it does influence his performance to some extent, there are other important factors at play.
- Visual Aspect: Lowenthal acknowledges the importance of the character’s visual appearance in creating the overall character.
- Multiple Elements: The actor highlights that the visual aspect is only one piece of the larger character creation process.
“So I think that visual part is an important part to creating the character, but it’s only one piece, and one piece that I sometimes don’t get,” Lowenthal said.
