Donald Glover To Voice Miles Morales


dgDisney XD’s animated Spider-Man series Ultimate Spider-Man will be seeing a long-awaited appearance from Miles Morales in an upcoming episode, thanks to season 3’s ‘Web Warriors’ story-line, and Donald Glover will finally be getting his chance at the role. The story-line, which is said to borrow from the ‘Spider-Verse’ comic storyline in which Peter Parker chases Green Goblin through  other dimensions as he tries to retrieve DNA from ALL the Spider-Men, will see Peter and Miles meet face-to-face. Meeting Peter is especially significant for Miles as in his universe, he’s taken up the mantle from a deceased Peter Parker.
Coming from comicbookresources, Stephen Wacker, Marvel Television’s vice president of current animation, stated, “He meets someone who is his hero, and that comes across completely in Donald’s performance. He’s got a real warmth that suits the character really, really well. If you’ve read Miles Morales comics, Donald’s voice nails what you’ve been reading.”
Donald has been trying to get an audition as Spider-Man for literally years, spear-heading a viral social media campaign to be allowed an audition, one that ended up in the hands of Andrew Garfield. The campaign seen some controversy thanks to certain minorities of comic fans being against the idea of a black Spider-Man. Not though, it seems they’ve been ignored.
