Jake Johnson wants to see if Peter B. Parker is a dad in the ‘Spider-Verse’ sequel

“I would love to see if he and MJ got back together. Did he become a dad? Is he still a superhero? he is a dad Y a super hero?” Jake Johnson Says About His Alternate Universe Spider-Man From 2018 Animated Hit Spider-Man: En el Spider-Verse. His middle-aged Peter B. Parker is saved from a downward spiral when he is pulled into another dimension and becomes the mentor of Miles Morales’ young Spidey. It’s fair to say that Peter had a lot of trouble in his own timeline.

“I really loved playing Peter B. Parker,” Johnson said on the latest episode of Hi Juice Mobile! So much so that he really hopes to return for the next sequel, though he couldn’t confirm if that was already the case.

“I actually recorded that [first] film for, I think, was more than two years. People don’t realize it but [for] most animations, you do two or three recordings and it’s over. I lived with that character before anyone knew it was going on for so long. I loved the material. I have to record with Shameik [Moore, who voiced Morales] a lot and we got to bounce off each other. And, you know, Shameik and I became friends, and we still text and stay in touch.”

It bodes well for his character in the next installment, some would say. It probably also served him well that he bowed to the character’s creative vision, burying his own instincts to listen to those who knew best.

Leave Spider-Man in the hands of the experts

“I relied a lot on the creators for that,” Johnson said of how he approached playing Spider-Man. “[Producer and writer] Phil Lord, who was the first person to contact me about doing it years before I got the part, I knew I could trust him a lot. About [producer] Chris Miller, [too], and in our directors. It was something I didn’t want to take on myself. I didn’t want to make too many bold decisions with my version of Peter, which I personally wanted to do with her, because I know how many people really love that character. So I relied a lot on creativity. And then Scott Gimple, the showrunner of Living Dead, is an old friend of mine. And I know he has a lot of passion for comics and for Spider-Man. So I also sent him a little text message.”

One of the things he enjoyed about the experience was being a part of something that meant so much to so many different people.

“I had never been a part of anything that had a clear message that came out,” he said. “And I thought it was a really unique and inspiring experience.”

I had gotten the pages, read the scenes, they were great. colin [Trevorrow, Dominion director] and I had talked a lot. Colin is not just the director and a collaborator, but a friend. He loves these characters. He loves this world and had a great vision of everything. And then COVID got in our way. And so he and I have been talking a lot about how to make it work. So I haven’t started and we are trying to find the best possible way to do it. And we’re in good hands with Colin on that. And I can say that without any nonsense.”

“That would be amazing,” he said. “You know, the truth of the matter is that I think with programming, it’s most likely being rewritten. But the truth is I don’t know. I know the programming was done [more] difficult than it was on my part, not theirs. And so they’re trying to adapt as best they can.”

‘Stumptown’ y Smulders

As noted by Johnson, he currently stars in the ABC series Stumptown, based on Greg Rucka (the old guard) comic, alongside Cobie Smulders. What is it like working with Smulders, who is also connected to Spidey through her role as Maria Hill in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

“After doing seven years of a television program [with New Girl], I realized the importance of liking the people you act with, because you are with them a lot, “said Johnson. “So Cobie, I met her briefly: She was doing a reshoot for a Tom Cruise movie. and i was doing The Mummy with Tom Cruise. We were able to talk and email a bit about how weird our encounter was. [I did] a lot of research and asked a lot of people and everyone I contacted spoke nothing but the best of it. And when I met her, it was just the truth. She is a monster of talent. She is unbelievably cool.”
