Lobbying for Donald Glover to be the next Spider-man begins anew

02.11.2015

Aside from the casting rumors circling actors like Logan Lerman for the new rebooted Spider-man set to debut in next year's CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, the same Internet fans who wanted comedian/rapper Donald Glover to play the webslinger are coming back to the forefront again.

If you weren't already aware, in 2011 there was a grassroots effort to have the COMMUNITY star cast as the new Peter Parker for Marc Webb's THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. Eventual star Andrew Garfield even liked the idea despite the outcry from some fans about the potential racial change for the character. The popularity of the idea grew to the point that Marvel Comics created the character of Miles Morales, whom Glover would go on to voice in his animated form.

Now, with THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN franchise dead and a new take on the character needed, Marvel and Sony are going to have to deal with whether or not they do another origin story for Spider-man. They could go the BATMAN V SUPERMAN route and just install Spider-man as an existing hero and ignore the well established origin or they could do something drastic and make the new character Miles Morales versus Peter Parker. Either way, Marvel and Sony have to think about the long term repercussions for whatever decision they make.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR hits theaters on May 6, 2016 and the new SPIDER-MAN debuts on July 28, 2017.

I like Glover a lot; he was my favorite character on Community. But I don't want him as Spider-Man. Spider-Man is Peter Parker, and Peter Parker is white. They just finished a massive story arc in all the Spider-titles (Spider-verse) and Peter was the anchor of the whole story, so Marvel is not giving up on that character, although they may be giving up on the Ultimate line, which doesn't bode well for Morales (who admittedly is a likeable character). Spidey is realistically the most

Spidey is realistically the most recognizable Marvel character worldwide and to all generations, he's a white guy named Peter Parker.

but he doesn't HAVE to be white, is the point a lot of people are making. Being white isn't essential to Parker's character. A black actor could be perfectly capable of embodying all the character traits exhibited by Peter Parker.

I know this isn't going to happen, but the overwhelming hate going on for just the idea of it is astounding. At what point does casting a black actor for a white person's role not become PC? When is it just normal? I don't want him to be Peter either, but not because he's Black and Peter is white. Remember kids, if you aren't white you could never be [link] etc!!! Not what I expected from the best movie community on the planet...

This has nothing to do with casting a black actor as Peter. The article is saying instead of doing Peter Parker Spider-Man who is white they could do the Miles Morales character of Spider-Man who is black. But for the majority here we prefer the Peter Parker version of Spider-Man. If they wanted to do Miles Morales character but cast him white you would see the same negativity.

I always find these controversies hilarious. Here's how it reads:

"You hear that they might get a black actor to play (insert traditionally white comic book character)?"
"What?! No! Absolutely not! No way! This reeks of stunt casting! They're trying to force the diversity issue! Race swapping is a stupid, pointless, terrible idea! I'm not racist, but if they're white in the comics, they should be white in the movie."

"Hey, did you hear they're getting Tom Hardy, a white actor, to portray

"Hey, did you hear they're getting Tom Hardy, a white actor, to portray Bane, a character who was Latino in the comics?"
"Eh, it should be about the right actor for the role. If Tom Hardy fits what they're trying to do with the character, ti shouldn't really matter he's not Latino. It's not like Bane HAS to be Latino to make a good adversary for Batman."

Here's the deal - absolutely no one raised a stink when Bane was race swapped from latino to white. So it would appear that no one had a problem with race swapping a character, so long as the swap was from "minority" to "white". But everyone seems to have an issue with swapping "white" to "minority". You can try and spin it however you want, but that is inherently racist.

This has nothing to do with race swapping, this is character swapping. We want Peter Parker not Miles Morales but if Marvel went with Miles as Spider-Man we would expect a black actor to be cast.

Most of the people I've seen lobbying for Glover have been lobbying for Glover as Parker, not Morales. People are just assuming they want Glover as Morales because they're both black.

Donald Glover....

its about as horrible casting as Alicia Silverstone as Batgirl with Blonde hair and we all know how that turned out.
some characters are not to be messed with, Spiderman is one of them (unless we're talking Miles Morales then yeah, Donald Glover) but I think they should start with Peter Parker FIRST and then open up a logical reason WHY there would be another different spiderman in another alternate reality.

Too old

Rumor is they want to bring back the character in high school again and Miles Morales never really left high school anyway. Glover became famous by playing a college student.

I have to be the only person, apparently, who thought The Amazing Spider-Man was the best of Spidey's movies and Garfield was very good in the role. That said, the sequel was pretty rough. We get two hung up on race. Hire the best actor for the job. Period. If Glover screens well and brings something new and good to the role, hire him. I've been lobbying for Idris Elba to play Bond for years now. It has nothing to do with his race, I just think he would make an awesome 007. Seriously, if you

Seriously, if you say a fictional character must be a certain race then you are thinking in a racist manner. It means you feel that the character's motives and actions would change if the color of his skin changes. There is nothing about the story of Spider-man that applies only to white people. Trust me, there's plenty of shy black (and Asian, Hispanic, etc) nerds in the world that would love to be granted superpowers to make their lives and the world better, just like white Peter Parker. As for Glover's acting abilities, who can say? Comedic actors have surprised us with their dramatic chops time and time again. Don't judge until he's given a chance. That"s what screen tests are for.

I don't think it's so much about getting caught up on race as it is getting caught up on character. Moreover, be careful, when people run around shouting racism when there isn't any, they end up contributing to the problem. To elaborate on why I donít think this is a racist issue: Many of us grew up with these characters as children. We identified with them and grew to love them as they were. This is not racism.

To elaborate on why I donít think this is a racist issue: Many of us grew up with these characters as children. We identified with them and grew to love them as they were. This is not racism. Seeing them as we remember them adds another level of enjoyment that is nostalgic and profound, evoking memories of childhood through recognition of the character. This is not racism. It is being a fan. One of the wonderful things about the human race is variety. We are unique in our individuality and yet unavoidably shaped by our heritage, race, religion, status etc. and these play a part in the makeup of our character whether we like it or not. When the race of a character is changed THE CHARACTER is also changed which naturally affects a fanís nostalgic connection. This is not racism. Black Panther was African when I was a kid and that is the way I would personally like him to stay because his race brought something important to the character that made him who he was. To deny that race has nothing to do with character is quite blinkered in my view. This is not racism. Our individual and cultural differences are beautiful and add a wonderful variety to this world. What I WOULD enjoy is new superheroes with more diversity, because quite frankly why not? Currently the established characters are front and center, but why not create some more? Not least because in the years when these characters were created, there was not enough diversity in superheroes. On this I agree. We have the talent to address this through imagining new heroes that can join the old. Itís not so farfetched when lesser known characters have been so well received.

In addition to this, the word fan is often used as a derogatory term on the site. Everyone is a fan of something.

I for one am tired of all this politically correct bullshit, about giving black actors a chance to play iconic comic book roles simply because there is a lack of popular black characters. People want to see Peter Parker, not Miles Morales. 99% of the people who know who Spiderman is have associated him with Peter Parker for the better part of the past 50 years.

recast captain America as a Black actor.
recast Iron Man as a black actor (or let Don Cheadle do War Machine again)
and completely set this movie in an alternate reality apart from all the other Marvel movies.
I'm not "opposed" to this one... I love Community... dont get me wrong... he's funny... but he's completely wrong for the part.... and yes do NOT start in with the fucking Marvel Alternate Universes PLEASE....
Spiderman is Peter Parker period... we dont need some radical shake up

Fanboy rage on who to cast in certain roles NEVER works or pleases them. Leave it to the professionals ok. It really doesn't matter to me who gets cast because now that Spider-Man is finally part of the MCU, Marvel has done a fine job on who is cast for the roles. But as usual whomever gets cast will most likely divide fanboys so what else is new.

Obviously the decision is out of my hands. But nope. No. No no no no no. I would much prefer a much younger actor. I'm thinking someone who looks like he actually goes to high school and is white. They want to do Miles Morales one day, I'd be happy to watch that movie. But if Marvel finally have a say in Spidey, I want to finally see a real proper Peter Parker for a couple of movies first.

Marvel/Sony are floating a trial balloon here to see what the reaction would be if they went down this road. I don't think their serious, they just want to see where the fans are at since they are so fractured after the quick reboot of a successful franchise that failed.

Umm....He's 15-20 years older than Miles Morales in the comics and Marvel has been waiting the past few decades to get their hands on Peter Parker so... this makes no sense. Peter Parker will be Spiderman. Miles is not known in the general movie going public consciousness the way PP is. That being said Bendis does a great job with MM in the comic and Ultimate Spiderman has been a great run so far.

If you're going to shake it up go with someone as the Miles Morales incarnation of Spider-Man, but absolutel do NOT go with Logan Lerman. My lord this guy is terrible.

He has had a few bright spots on an otherwise shitty career imo. He plays "jittery" very well, but in no way, shape or form could carry such a big role.

I never wanted to slap someone so hard, are you going to compare 3 episodes of a mediocre always on the verge of being cancelled comedy to everything the marvel univers has done.

Thumbs down for calling Community mediocre. Im not against Glover, but how on earth do you know he can or cannot handle action scenes? Who wouldve thought Garfield or Maguire could? Im down for whoever they cast - as long as its inspired and NOT Miles Morales.

You should be slapped for thinking he can't handle it. Chris Pratt never did action either. Same with Andrew Garfield but they did pretty fine I would say.

Would be difficult to work, Storywise

The problem with having Miles Morales is that his origin hinges heavily around Peter Parker being KIA. Maybe they could write around that, but I think it would end up feeling clumsy, and somewhat forced.

I'll probably be branded a racist, but I don't want Glover as Spiderman. It's not about having a black character, it's that I want to see Peter Parker alongside Captain America and Iron Man. I don't want to see Miles Morales simply because I have never read any of the comics with that character, not familiar with him and just not interested at this time. Get Parker into the mix and keep Morales in the back pocket when the MCU needs to do a soft reboot of the character or something.

dont mess it up!

theres no need to change him , but they need to repair his image no dobut after those last two horrible outings. Changing who the main character was originally is a bad idea. That would be like passing to win the superbowl on the one yard line with a few seconds left in the game. Who would do that? Peter Parker is spiderman, Peter Parker is not a black man.

No

Donald Glover sucks. His acting sucks. His "rapping" sucks. And no more fucking race changing characters. It's a PC joke. Pathetic.

Race changing characters can be annoying, you're right...like how they made Speed Racer white...and Goku white...and the lead in Ghost in the Shell white (ScarJo)...and the proposed Akira live action cast white...and The Last Airbender cast mostly white...and the Edge of Tomorrow (All You Need is Kill) cast white...and on and on.

Donald Glover is Miles Morales. Introduce him as a supporting character, maybe someone who Spidey mentors with the possibility he could wear the suit in future films. Kind of like Winter Soldier/ War Machine.

I'm pretty sure Marvel used his likelihood to create the character the same way they did with Sam Jackson and ultimate Nick Fury.

Why the votes down? I'm not saying he should be Peter Parker, or even be Spider-Man. Just saying that he is partially responsible for the existence of the character Miles Morales, so if that character ever does get the big screen treatment I think the role deserves to be his.

Plus I would also love to see a Shaft movie staring Michael Cera! That standup bit is from his Weirdo tour, the comedy special for it is pretty awesome.

I have to be the only person, apparently, who thought The Amazing Spider-Man was the best of Spidey's movies and Garfield was very good in the role. That said, the sequel was pretty rough. We get two hung up on race. Hire the best actor for the job. Period. If Glover screens well and brings something new and good to the role, hire him. I've been lobbying for Idris Elba to play Bond for years now. It has nothing to do with his race, I just think he would make an awesome 007. Seriously, if you

Seriously, if you say a fictional character must be a certain race then you are thinking in a racist manner. It means you feel that the character's motives and actions would change if the color of his skin changes. There is nothing about the story of Spider-man that applies only to white people. Trust me, there's plenty of shy black (and Asian, Hispanic, etc) nerds in the world that would love to be granted superpowers to make their lives and the world better, just like white Peter Parker. As for Glover's acting abilities, who can say? Comedic actors have surprised us with their dramatic chops time and time again. Don't judge until he's given a chance. That"s what screen tests are for.

Again, implying the character would be a different person because his skin color is different is racist. You can stand behind artistic blabla all day, its just hiding an inherent racist attitude people seem to have no problem displaying under the guise of the internet. You wanna know why Spider-Man is white? In 1962, it would have been darn near impossible to sell a superhero of color to American audiences. Well it isn't 1962 anymore, not that you could tell by reading some of the posts on

It is one thing to say you don't think Glover should play the part because you don't think he is talented enough, that is fine. It is saying he can't do it because he is black that disgusts me.

I also don't want someone like Matt Damon as Blade and I bet people would be up in arms about casting like that. if people want more black heroes, MAKE THEM UP. I will happily pay to see the next Blade or Black Panther but I won't pay to see people ridding on the success of others

I'm probably the minority, But I kinda wouldn't mind Garfield reprising his role in Cap3 instead. Ok, so the ASM series was as good as SM3, but to just "kill" it seems like a wasted opportunity. Why not just blend ASM into Civil War instead. Doesn't mean you need to get Garfield, but maybe continue with that iteration. We don't need another origin story for Spidey either.
Or maybe get Maguire back for Civil war as an obviously older Spider-man, then introduce Miles as Peter's replacement.

Or maybe get Maguire back for Civil war as an obviously older Spider-man, then introduce Miles as Peter's replacement. Stop changing shit for the sake of it. Marvel and DC do have diversity in the comics. We don't need to keep changing people just to get more "diversity". It's not like we ever make people who aren't white into white people. I'm all for diversity but do it when it makes sense. Peter Parker is a white guy. Miles Morales is black. Jessica Drew is Spider-woman.
Thing is, if you are FINALLY going to introduce Spider-man to the MCU, which excites a LOT of fans, do it properly. Stop alienating fans for the sake of being"bold" and "risky". ASM already did that. Look how well that turned out.

Leaving comedy to do that shitty rap stuff. As David Spade once said about Eddie Murphy "Oh look kids, a falling star"

Seriously though, this guy is bonkers and should be nowhere near Spider-Man. Keep the role as Peter Parker and stop trying to entangle Ultimate Spiderman universe into Marvels universe.

I'm just curious, but how come everytime they change the race of a character, it's always African American. Human Torch, Heimdell, Perry White, Kingpin, Electro, etc. If they're going for more diversity, why have we not seen any major changes using actors who are Hispanic, Asian, Indian, etc. I guess DC has started to change a little with the casting of Wonder Woman and Aquaman, but this is just something that's always been in the back of my mind.

After the bad taste and image Amazing Spider Man 1 and 2 left us with, why on earth would Marvel reintroduce the iconic character again with the likes of Iron Man and Captain America with Miles Morales???? Marvel needs to redeem Spider Man again by making it a fresh, new, exciting story with Peter Parker donning the suit. No one else.

And Donald Glover is a terrible actor. I'm a huge fan of Community and never thought he brought anything special to the group dynamic with his character.

That last sentence should have read "the show was better with his character not being around".

I didn't mind him at all leaving. Gave more screen time to John Oliver, Jonathan Banks, and Ken Jeong; who are all much more talented and funny.

I knew this shit would come up again. Give it a rest, Glover. It's not a race thing. It's that no one wants to see you play this role, not to mention no one wants to see Miles Morales as the new Spidey. I'm a die hard comic book movie fan, but there are still people on this site who could kick my ass in Spidey trivia. THOSE fans, the ones who grew up loving this character, don't want to see this, so stfu, and get over yourself.

I was supportive last time, not now it's a harder sell for me. He's well over 30 and while i love him as an actor, he's not right for Spiderman. I dont see him playing a high schooler.

I still wanna see a more ethnically diverse Spider-man, just not Donald Glover

FK NO!

Only the HARDCORE HIPSTER Spidey Fans want Miles Morales. for 100% of the GENERAL PUBLIC Peter Parker is Spider-man. They have never EVEN HEARD of Miles Morales. Its almost in the same vein of the general public thinking Dick Grayson is the only Robin when there has been Tim, Jason, Kelly, Damian etc but if they did any of those characters it would be ok because we've had those iterations from anywhere from 3-30 years. but a big FAT no to donald glover.

just because he was drawn white, doenst mean he has to stay white in every incarnation. Why can't we have a black Peter Parker, or Asian?

i'm for a more ethnically diverse Spiderman this time around as a way to distance itself from The Amazing Spiderman. General audiences werent impressed with the movies and many are going to confuse the new movies as sequels to the last time.

Miles Morales does not resonate with the larger Spider-Man audience, replacing Peter Parker as Spider-Man, is like replacing Bruce Wayne as Batman. Donald Glover doesnt even reflect the type of tone the MCU has built with its current characters. Marvel has wanted Peter Parker/Spiderman in their movie since before Miles Morales was even created. so why change it all of a sudden. im not saying Miles Morales isnt the right Spiderman, he's just not the right Spiderman right now. if Marvel/Sony want

Oh that's right we have a Black President now so it makes it ok.

You know what, Fuck it, Let's recast Wolverine with a Black Guy and make Professor X Chinese.

Two things...

One, I really couldn't care less as to Spider-Man's ethnicity, but I certainly prefer Peter Parker. Hell, make Parker an eskimo if you want to, but make him Parker.

Two, and I must be in the minority here, but I just do NOT get the fucking appeal of this guy, Donald Glover. I tried watching his stand up on Netflix and after nearly 20 minutes of what was pretty much just shameless self-promotion I shut it off. Seriously, cast anybody. Michael B. Jordan, Logan Lerman, fucking Rosanne Barr.

Admittedly, his stand up-special was kind-of shitty, but I'm not sure stand up is his style. He seems more like a sketch comic, as his stuff with Derrick Comedy is pretty clever and hilarious, and I think he had some good moments on community. If it's your kind of genre, his music has some pretty witty/clever lines as well. But yeah, he's not cut out for any incarnation of spiderman, and isn't the best standup comic.

LOVE Donald Glover but I think the vast majority would like to see Peter Parker have his start in the MCU. Maybe they can slowly introduce Miles Morales in the future but to establish Spider-Man in this world, you got to start with the original. My two cents.

Not....

If you want to change the character, you'll have to kill off the original (or at least retire him). Starting over with a completely new guy with a completely new backstory means we have ANOTHER origin film to deal with (the 3rd in 20 years). Nobody is interested in that (not to mention Spidey's next appearance will be in Captain America, not his own film.

Seriously, why are people so obsessed with this crap. Peter Parker has been Spiderman for the VAST MAJORITY of his run in the comics,
