I'm thinking Harry is the new Spider-Man.
In the interview they keep mentioning Madame Web and at one point Spider-Island. Thinking back, didn't she say something like Peter would have to take a life? And I'm pretty sure that hasn't happened (has it?) because of the whole "no-one dies" thing, so it would be a pretty big deal.
Maybe it really is Harry and Slott and co. are hoping people have forgotten about him.
if pete is dead, there needs to be a backdoor. trapped in 2099 in stasis, the Watcher's lair, etc.
I don't really remember any hints in Spider-Island. Anyone think they have any clue what that segment referred to?
If the Tweet was an accidental spoiler, then the surprise will be ruined for even more readers.
If it was Slott trolling the fans, then the interviewer will just be helping him out, and getting the hopes up for anyone looking forward to that status.
Comments about a tweet by Dan Slott which was either a direct message to an artist, or an attempt to troll fans, have been edited to include spoil tags.
There's also another thread to talk about the implications of that, which wasn't alluded to in the current interview.
Keep in mind there are several levels of spoilers. Some readers here will be comfortable reading and discussing an interview with Slott, but they won't think it's as much fun to talk about something that could be an actual spoiler. They're happy to speculate, but they're not as interested in confirmation.
In ASM 691, Madame Webb asked if Peter would forever cut anothe's skein from the web of life.
She didn't say he would, but man, she's been pushing hard for it since Spider-Island.
Also, Roddy was at the center of the distorted web where the future goes dark...which could strengthen the Phil Urich theory!

Spider-Man: I refuse to believe [I'll kill someone]
Julia Carpenter: I've seen it.
Spider-Man: No way. I'd stop being Spider-Man. I'd die first.
Julia Carpenter: Actually--
Spider-Man: Oh, God! Shut up already!
Also, let's not forget Amazing Spider-Man #673, in which Julia offers Spidey an out, saying that if he took the Anti-Venom cure, a new Spider-Man would take his place and he would have a chance at a normal life, implying that if he continued being Spider-Man, he would suffer a "loss" because of it. Well, we know now that when Julia told him "I'm sorry for your loss" that she wasn't taking about Mary Jane. And then, when Spidey is fighting the Lizard in ASM #691, Julia, watching from above, says this:
"Will you do it Parker? Will you forever cut another's skein from the Web of Life?"
And because Julia claimed Silver Sable was still alive, maybe she WASN'T talking about her.
I don't know about you guys, but this makes me believe that Doc Ock will be responsible for taking the life of Aunt May and that this will be what drives Peter to kill Doc Ock.

Am I the only one to think that Doc Ock's physical body is going to die, but that his mind will somehow end up in the body of Peter Parker? Who else would be [the] "Superior Spider-Man" than Doc Ock? It would certainly be a drastic change in the character, for however long it lasted...
