SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING is announcing actors left and right, and this latest actor was actually a people's choice to play the titular hero, before actually voicing Miles Morales on the Ultimate Spider-Man TV show. I'm talking about writer/comedian Donald Glover. The Community star is not only a solid actor, but can pull off the quirky sensibilities that some people felt would suit Spider-Man just fine. So who is he playing in HOMECOMING? That's up in the air right now, but given the age of the lead, I'd wager a teacher in Parker's school. Glover joins the likes of Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr., Tony Revolori, Zendaya and Michael Barbieri, among others.

While I haven't had a chance to check out Community, I have enjoyed Glover in films like THE MARTIAN and MAGIC MIKE XXL. The man is obviously super talented, having written for the show 30 Rock when he was barely out of his 20s. I don't know how sizable his role will be, or if he'll have any connection to Miles Morales, but the cast is certainly better off with Glover!

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING will hit theaters on July 7, 2017.

I would rather keep him separate from any of the Morales family ties and attached to the animated film in that way. But I would use him in a way people won't see coming. Maybe as Cardiac or even go wild and use his humor and eccentric personality to portray NY's most notorious serial killer Cletus Kasady as a build up. And I'm not just saying this to play the switch card...looking at Electro in the corner...but Donald has the chops to pull of heavily medicated serial killer with a smile all

He has the range 100%

Pretty cool if you've seen his one stand-up special about him possibly being the new Spider-Man and now he's appearing in it. I like the guy though and a fan of most of his music, so good for him.

I'm curious of what role he may have taken. Hobie Brown AKA The Prowler would be a shoo-in, but casting an African-American actor as an African-American masked burglar, however comic book accurate it is, seem a bit too obvious and controversial in light of racial profiling. But I suppose Marvel can find ways to make that work, since The Prowler is hardly an evil supervillain. Heck, I'm not even sure why Marvel never made him as a full on superhero.
