A day after the new PlayStation 4 exclusive game for the friendly neighborhood superhero at E3 was announced, another bit of huge news for Spider-Man dropped.
Once rumored to play Spider-Man himself, Community and The Martian actor Donald Glover is reportedly in talks right now to join the wall-crawler on the big screen. It’s reported that Glover will be joining the cast for Spider-Man: Homecoming, the upcoming co-production between Marvel Studios and Sony.
As stated, Glover was rumored for the role of Spider-Man for Sony’s 2012 reboot of the franchise and fans lent very vocal support for the casting and the multi-talented artist himself was moved by the support. Of course it went to Andrew Garfield as we all know, but Glover did voice Miles Morales on Ultimate Spider-Man.
There is no word as to who Glover might be playing since it’s Marvel and they don’t let anything out unless they want to. It most likely won’t be Miles though as he’s really too old for the role now and Miles is rumored to be the Spider-Man for Sony’s standalone animated Spider-Man film from Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
Glover would be good company if cast with Tom Holland as a high school aged Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Michael Keaton as the film’s villain. Also starring will be Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Zendaya as the female lead, Tony Revolori, Laura Harrier, Michael Barbieri, Kenneth Choi, and Robert Downey Jr. of course playing Tony Stark/Iron Man.
What do you think of the news? How excited are you and who do you hope Glover plays? Let us know in the comments below!
Spider-Man: Homecoming is being directed by Jon Watts and will be released on July 7, 2017.
