Alex Ross’ “Amazing Spider-Man” #5 Cover Originally Featured a Peter Capaldi Cameo

“Doctor Who” star Peter Capaldi almost made it to the Marvel Universe alongside his castmates from “Thick of It,” the show he was best known for before he became the Twelfth Doctor. As io9 pointed out (via Bleeding Cool), he and the rest of the cast appear in the windows of the bus Spider-Man is slammed into on Alex Ross’ original cover for “Amazing Spider-Man” #5, which you can check out below.

Unfortunately, the cameos just weren’t meant to be. In the most recent preview for the issue, Ross has clearly altered the cast and replaced them with a few generic figures.

When a fan approached writer Dan Slott to see why this had happened, Slott explained it was tough to get in touch with the cast to sign off on Marvel’s use of their likeness.

Dan Slott, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Cam Smith’s “Amazing Spider-Man” #5 will arrive at retailers on December 23.
