Actor Donald Glover will voice Spider-Man on animated TV series
Actor and hip-hop star Donald Glover has finally realised his dream of playing Spider-Man... well, kind of.
Four years ago, fans of his cult TV series Community campaigned for Glover, to play the hero in The Amazing Spider-Man flicks.
The campaign failed as the role ultimately went to Andrew Garfield.
But Brian Michael Bendis, the writer for the Ultimate Spider-Man comic series, was inspired by Glover's Twitter campaign to create Spider-Man's alter ego Miles Morales, who is half-black and half-hispanic in 2011.
We're not ready for another live-action reboot of the Spider-Man series just yet, but we'd gladly welcome the introduction of Miles Morales to play opposite Andrew Garfield.
