What interests me most about the whole Dan Slott leaving, is that apparently his departure was planned years in advance and that all his chronic lies are just to dissuade or misdirect (as is the point of the lies).
I never thought I’d see you walking away from Spider-Man. Was this a hard decision to make?
This was a decision that was made way long ago. I gotta feel like a jerk, because whenever someone would interview me, or whenever it would come up on panels, I would look out at people and say with a stern look that I was never leaving. Very much in the same way I was saying, “Peter Parker is never coming back. I killed him” [during The Superior Spider-Man]. I lied. I lied horribly. [Laughs.] But that’s what us storytellers do, we spin lies.
Well, I don't trust in Slott about that, he said that everything was well arranged with Marvel, but looking into his behavior online and his tantrums in forums, Marvel may just dumped him when they decided to do Marvel Legacy and he is trying to save face.
