Donald Glover’s Bringing His Spider-Man Love To The Big Screen
Donald Glover has never been shy about his love for Spider-Man and his desire to play the superhero. Back on 2010’s “Do Ya Like,” for instance, he rapped, “Baby, I’m your hero, Donald for Spider-Man”—a reference to a #Donald4SpiderMan campaign that had recently taken shape on Twitter.
Now, he’ll get the chance to be in a Spider-Man movie—though not playing the title character himself (that role will go to Tom Holland).
