While Tom Holland does a pretty great job as Spider-Man, Jake Johnson’s Peter B. Parker from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is a whole different flavor; with different things to love about him. With the Coronavirus shutting down everything, and parents stuck at home watching Spider-Verse with their kids, Johnson is offering to send messages to them from Spider-Man himself.
Here’s the post:

Since the quarantine a lot of parents have DM’d me saying they’ve been watching Spiderverse with their kids. A lot. So, here’s my idea. If your child is home from school and wants a quick encouraging message from Peter B Peter, then send me an email with their name and I’ll try and send over a short voice note. If I don’t get to you, I apologize. #stayhome Email here if you wanna try this: [email protected]
While I don’t think he can keep up making recordings for hundreds of kids, it’s a nice gesture in these times, especially since we can really feel the isolation. I’d say go with a message for everyone, but I don’t think Sony will just let him use the Spider-Man character willy-nilly.
For now, Spider-Verse was a critical success, and Sony is already aiming for a release of the sequel in 2022. Besides Miles Morales, I’m sure everyone also wants to see a return of Peter B. Parker. Though he could be kind of sad, he’s pretty relatable, and you can see that Spider-Man attitude on him despite the tough exterior.
Bitten by a radioactive spider in the subway, Brooklyn teenager Miles Morales suddenly develops mysterious powers that transform him into the one and only Spider-Man. When he meets Peter Parker, he soon realizes that there are many others who share his special, high-flying talents. Miles must now use his newfound skills to battle the evil Kingpin, a hulking madman who can open portals to other universes and pull different versions of Spider-Man into our world.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is now available on digital and Blu-Ray/DVD. The Spider-Verse sequel comes out on April 8, 2022.
