Donald Glover Is Finally Getting His Chance To Be Spider-Man

As the character he inspired.

It seems like forever ago that “Community” fans were campaigning for Donald Glover to become the new Peter Parker in “The Amazing Spider-Man.” Though they didn’t get him the role, the fan support did result in a Glover-inspired character, Miles Morales, taking over the mantle of Spider-Man in the pages of Marvel Comics “Ultimate Spider-Man.”

Now, since Miles is heading to the Disney XD show “Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors” for the upcoming Spider-Verse story arch, it’s only appropriate that Glover provide the voice… and that’s exactly what’s happening, as revealed in USA Today.

The first clip from the upcoming event just debuted, and fans can finally hear Glover as your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. In the scene, Peter Parker runs into his parallel universe counter-part and confusion ensues.

The season premiere of “Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors” airs Sunday, August 31 at 9 a.m. ET/PT.

Writer/editor for MTV. If it involves cowboys, spies, or hitmen, I'm there. All three would be ideal.
