In an endearing testament to his devotion to the iconic role of Peter Parker, actor Yuri Lowenthal, best known as the voice of Spider-Man in the Insomniac games, expressed his heartfelt desire to embody the beloved character for as long as he can, even declaring that he would do so “until my dying breath.” Lowenthal’s sentiments came to light during a recent interview with Phase Zero, as reported by Comic Book.
Lowenthal’s enthusiasm for the future of Insomniac’s Spider-Man series was palpable as he discussed his enduring connection to the character. When asked about the extent of his commitment to portraying Peter Parker, Lowenthal’s response resonated with a deep sense of gratitude: “I’ll be honest, I’m just excited that at my age they still let me play Spider-Man, or that they ever let me play Spider-Man in the first place.”
His dedication to the role knows no bounds, as he continued, “I’ll do it to my dying breath if they’ll let me because I love it so much. I love working with [Insomniac] so much and I love what they do. And I just got to say, I love playing Spider-Man. It is the best.”
Lowenthal also displayed a remarkable level of humility and understanding when addressing the possibility of a recasting in the future: “I’ll do it forever if they ask me to but I also understand if at some point they’re like, ‘You know what, we’re going to have to switch gears.’ And I’d be like, ‘You know what? I had a good run.'”
With a touch of nostalgia, he concluded, “Not everyone can say that they do what I get to do. Even if it ended today I’d be like, ‘I did that.’ But I also hope it goes on forever.” This sentiment reflects the genuine passion and appreciation Lowenthal holds for his role in the Insomniac Spider-Man games—a sentiment shared by fans worldwide.
As fans eagerly anticipate the release of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, where Lowenthal will once again bring Peter Parker to life, it’s evident that his dedication to the character knows no bounds. The game is set to launch exclusively on PS5 on October 20, 2023, promising another thrilling adventure in the Spider-Man universe.
