Donald Glover finally gets to be in a Spider-Man movie! Probably not as Miles Morales, however, much as we would love to see that bit of fan casting finally come to pass on the big-screen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Glover is in negotations to join the ever-growing cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming, which will hopefully see Peter Parker (Tom Holland) fight baddies while trying to decide who he should take to the Homecoming dance.
We don’t actually know much about the movie’s plot, though John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) are writing the screenplay. Marisa Tomei will reprise her role as Aunt May, Michael Keaton is coming on as a villain, and Marvel has cast several young actors of color as Peter’s classmates, including Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel) as “Manuel” and former Disney Channel star Zendaya as “Michelle,” according to The Wrap. Jeff Sneider of The Wrap also claimed that there will be a supporting villain who will be played by an actor of color… could that be Glover’s role?
Or maybe this means the soundtrack will include a new track from Childish Gambino.
Spider-Man: Homecoming comes to theaters July 7, 2017.
