UPDATE: Hannibal Buress and Zendaya have also officially joined the cast of Homecoming along with Glover. Zendaya is playing a character named Michelle (Mary Jane insert?) while Buress’ role hasn’t been confirmed yet.
This ain’t exactly #DonaldForSpiderman, but it’s close.
As if working on Atlanta wasn’t enough already, Donald Glover is finding his way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Glover is in talks for a top-secret role in Spider-Man: Homecoming, the Marvel-sanctioned reboot of the series starring Tom Holland as Peter Parker. Even after all the piss he received when he almost played Peter Parker back in 2012, this isn’t the first time that the actor-writer-rapper has been in contact with Spidey; he voiced Miles Morales in the animated series Ultimate Spider-Man, but now we can hope for something more.
Other cast members so far include Michael Keaton as the main villain, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark,
