#Donald4Spiderman: Dreams Do Come True

Two of my favorite things are coming together, as Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, aka Troy from NBC’s Community, is set to voice Miles Morales —a half-black, half-hispanic teen in the Ultimate Spider-Man comics who purportedly was modeled a bit after Glover anyway — in Disney XD’s animated series Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors.
It’s been a few years since Glover’s Twitter campaign, which originated the above image and shot #donald4spiderman to a brief Twitter trend. (Read more here and here), but here we find that no amount of time can prevent Disney from achieving your dreams, if you’re already famous and a pretty rad voice actor who happens to love Spider-Man and look like the character. Check out the clip below of Glover in Spidey-suit action:
Add (a version of) Spider-Man to the growing list of my favorite characters who are now voiced by Glover. He also voices Adventure Time's Marshall Lee, the gender-swapped version of Marceline in Fionna & Cake specials; check out his sweet rap in “Bad Little Boy.”
