New Spider-Man Movie Adds Donald Glover to Cast!

Sony and Marvel’s reboot of the Spider-Man franchise is coming along quite nicely and the diversity is adding to the excitement. It was announced on Tuesday, Donald Glover was joining the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming, which will go back to Peter Parker/Spider-Man’s high school days.

There’s no word on his character just yet, but he’ll star alongside Michael Keaton, who’s playing a villain; Marisa Tomei as Aunt May; Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man; and Tom Holland, who’s playing the lead role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man.

Also, a few months back, we told you Zendaya was added to  the cast and at the time, there was no word on her character. We now know she’s reportedly playing the female lead (!!!!).

Glover’s appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming, could a testament to the universe manifesting what you want. Back in 2012, when Sony was working on The Amazing Spiderman, there was a grassroots campaign of fans who wanted the actor and rapper to land the starring role.

Glover appreciated the effort, and went on to voice the biracial Spider-Man Miles Morales on the animated Disney XD series, “Ultimate Spider-Man.”

Spider-Man: Homecoming is scheduled to begin production later this month.
