"Spider-Man" casting may have thus far overlooked "Community" actor Donald Glover, but Twitter has not. In fact, it turns out that Glover now has the voiced support of both Brian Michael Bendis and Alejandro Arbona.
In other tweets, Stan Lee revealed the backstory behind his non-Marvel-movie cameo on "Eureka," which SyFy watchers will want to take note of. A portion of his explanation is retweeted below along with a "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" trailer reaction from Jonathan Hickman and Andy Diggle on his specialized comic book writer use for his new iPad.

Donald Glover pt. 1: @BRIANMBENDIS i support this!! RT @chrischuang: Hey @BRIANMBENDIS, @mrdonaldglover wants to be spider-man! #donald4spiderman

@smilinstanlee You cameo lovers may well rejoice, for I met with the super talented Jamie Paglia, creator/writer of the SciFi Channel’s “Eureka!

@JHickman Scott Pilgrim trailer was fun. But is it wrong that as much as I'm looking forward to it, I'd trade it for a Street Angel movie in a second.
-Jonathan Hickman, Writer/Artist ("Fantastic Four," "The Nightly News")
@goonguy If you love comics, do yourself and this industry a favor and buy one new book this weekend that's not a Marvel/DC superhero book.
-Eric Powell, Writer/Artist ("The Goon," "Action Comics")
@FrankTieri Forgot to thank Shrek for defeating the horror that is Sex and the City 2, proving once again that sometimes good does really conquer evil.
