Donald Glover is finally gettng his chance to be Spider-Man! Unfortunately it's not in a live-action movie, but on the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon, where he'll voice the comics' Ultimate Spider-Man, Miles Morales. Here's a clip!
It all happens in the new season premiere of Web Warriors, airing this Sunday on Disney XD. From USA Today:
The cartoon Miles is very close to the comic-book version: The 13-year-old is still getting used to being a superhero when he meets the dimension-hopping Peter (Drake Bell), who's trying to stop his old nemesis the Green Goblin from collecting the DNA of various Spider-Men — from Spider-Man Noir to the porcine hero Spider-Ham— for nefarious reasons.
It's an emotional moment for Miles, though, because in his world, Peter is dead.
Really, I only have two problems with this: 1) Drake Bell, who voices Peter Parker, sounds way younger than Glover, which is a little weird, and 2) this makes me desperately, desperately wish the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon was all about Miles again. But still, I guess we have to start somewhere...
