Donald Glover Cast As The Voice Of Miles Morales In ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN
Donald Glover will finally play Spider-Man! Well, voice him anyway. The actor will lend his tones to Miles Morales in season 3 of the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon, and you can check out an interview, some stills and a clip from the show after the jump.
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.
