In a recent interview with USA Today, the 30 year old actor talked about how it felt to take on the role of Miles Morales in season three of Ultimate Spider-Man, "I don't think it's hit me necessarily yet how big of a deal that is, I'm very grateful for that, and it's cool to read the comic now." He then discusses his character adjusting to his powers, and how they will affect his life in general. "He's a kid you can root for, and you want good things for, who suffered some loss of his own, and we're seeing him come to terms with his new powers and how to use them." More at the link below.

"I still have hopes to do something like that one day. I don't look at this as second place. Spider-Man, he's such an icon — you have to do something with him." - Donald Glover On Miles.



Ultimate Spider-Man (re-titled Ultimate Spider-Man: Web-Warriors for the third season) is an American animated television series based on the Spider-Man comics published by Marvel Comics, including some elements of Marvel's Ultimate line of books.

Seagle, Joe Kelly, Joe Casey, and Duncan Rouleau). It was first announced to air on Disney XD in early 2012,and debuted alongside The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes's second season as part of the Marvel Universe programming block on April 1, 2012.

Goddammit now I have to watch.
0megaDaGod - 8/26/2014, 7:53 AM
Dope

Now make him Spider Man so that I can care about the TASM franchise for at least 5 minutes
MrCBM56 - 8/26/2014, 7:53 AM

Black guy gets to be Spider-Man, only condition is he has to wear a black suit

specialkail - 8/26/2014, 8:02 AM
ultimate spiderman isnt good but its watchable. its definitely better than that crock of shit avengers assemble and agents of smash
DrKinsolving - 8/26/2014, 8:03 AM
Should be cool, he's 31 though, he's getting too old to play Miles in a live-action movie....

TASM franchise is horrible for so many reasons, Garfield is also going to be 35 by the time TASM 3 comes out....

Solid casting!

Was hoping for this for a long time.. esp after his face was on Parkers wall in TASM

Ultimate Spiderman has a few gem episodes like the Deadpool one. But the majority of it just appeals to a younger audience. My nephews love this show.
TheDudeRusty - 8/26/2014, 8:11 AM
Now cast him in the live action one before he gets too old.

Heh... He's old as fudge already :/
Miles was a kid. He was like Robin-Spider-Man. He has to be young. Either 15, or 16. Too late D:

Love TASM franchise and proud of it.

@StarYeezus

I like the avatar. I like it a lot. I'm think I'm going to stalk the shit out of you.

Beware of dark alleys.

season 3? holy shit time is flying! Gave up on this in the first season as it wasn't that good. It looks great though and the design for spidey seems to have changed? maybe I'll dip in again....maybe
StarYeezus - 8/26/2014, 8:48 AM
@cipher

Ha, being stalked by Spike is more welcoming than off-putting in my book.
COREY6487 - 8/26/2014, 8:51 AM
nooooooooooo dont bring in miles... they are gonna ruin him. they should just give him his own series and adapt the comic like the animes do with manga.

Congrats to him. He's been wanting to play SM before. Now he at least gets a chance to voice him.
BobbyDrakeApproaches - 8/26/2014, 9:13 AM
They actually referenced this on Community. The first time we see Glover in season two, he is wearing Spidey pajamas. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFu4CYUGhW8

I still remember when Ant-Man was down with the cause black.


SuperSpiderMan5778 - 8/26/2014, 9:20 AM
wait what? he's a rapper?
StarYeezus - 8/26/2014, 9:21 AM
@BobbyDrakeApproaches

TOO damn MANY stupid Spiderman. KILL THEM ALL OFF and START OVER with just 1 Marvel!!!
MrMartinMarvel - 8/26/2014, 9:37 AM
I'm glad he's finally getting to play Spider-Man, even if it's only animated.
Rpendo - 8/26/2014, 9:37 AM
Yeah...because two is a huge number.
ComicsBornAndBred - 8/26/2014, 9:41 AM
Love Donald Glover. Childish Gambino haha. He should play Spiderman love action too. I'll def tune into this episode even though I'm not a fan of the show. Waaay too much humor sometimes
BobbyDrakeApproaches - 8/26/2014, 9:43 AM
@StarYeezus Nice catch, I never noticed that before!
Bread - 8/26/2014, 9:45 AM
He should play Spider Man in the MCU on Netflix
niceguyeddie - 8/26/2014, 9:54 AM
@JasonGrayson

You must not listen to alot of rap
BlackWarrior - 8/26/2014, 9:55 AM
If he did play Miles it would have to be an older one yea, I heard Marvel put some money on the table to Sony for Spidey.... or i wonder can they just use Miles in the MCU....
Dandy - 8/26/2014, 10:00 AM
Hate this show but so glad that we will get to hear what a Donald Glover spider might have been.

batz11 - 8/26/2014, 10:04 AM
Didn't know who Glover was, next time, be nice to include a picture of the actor in the article, for the dumb-asses who don't know him ;)
