THE MARTIAN's Donald Glover Joins SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

Donald Glover/Childish Gambino, who was once the fan favorite choice for the role of Miles Morales, will be joining the ever-growing cast of Marvel and Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming in a (likely) supporting role.

It wasn't long ago that fans were creating petitions to have Sony cast Donald Glover as the new Spider-Man back when Marc Webb was just getting the Amazing Spider-Man films off the ground. Many were hoping that the actor/rapper would play the role of the newly created Ultimate Spider-Man, Miles Morales.  Considering that the character's creator, Brian Michael Bendis, based Miles' physical appearance on Glover, it seemed like a perfect fit, despite the immense age difference.

While Glover was never seriously considered for a role in the Amazing Spider-Man duology, he did have the opportunity to voice the young Miles Morales in an episode of Disney XD's Ultimate Spider-Man, and now, it looks like Glover is going to join Tom Holland on the big screen. According to Deadline, Glover is currently in talks to join the cast of 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming. At the moment, details on Glover's role are being kept under wraps, but given the fact that Glover is in his early thirties and Holland's Peter Parker is in high school, it seems unlikely that Glover will be playing Miles. Perhaps he'll play his Uncle, who was the Ultimate universe's Prowler? Or maybe one of Peter's professors?

Are you excited to see Donald Glover join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Spider-Man: Homecoming?
