Donald Glover for SPIDER-MAN?

Donald Glover 4 Spider-Man

Mystery Team Sword Club, ASSEMBLE! The Donald Glover for SPIDER-MAN campaign has officially begun. It all started when the idea of casting an African-American Spider-Man in the upcoming Marc Webb SPIDER-MAN reboot was purposed and Glover's name was casually thrown into the ring. Soon, Glover (who most recently stared in the cult hit MYSTERY TEAM and stars on NBC's Community) caught wind of the idea and it's all snowballed from there. Check out all the happenings after the break...

Obviously pleased with the idea of playing Spider-Man (honestly what nerd wouldn't be?) Glover went to work on getting the buzz out. The "hash-tag" #donald4spiderman was created and the subsequent re-tweet bomb dropped. The tag started to trend in several cities like NYC, Chicago, and California. Glover was also contacted by a Marvel.com writer Ryan Penagos via this twit-versation...

So, it would appear that if nothing else comes of this, Glover will get an interview with Marvel and who knows what could develop from something like that. Holding your breath for such a radical change in the SPIDER-MAN reboot game-plan is probably not a good idea (unlike holding you breath for other things, which is usually totally safe). However, if you have still not had your fill of "Donald Glover 4 Spider-Man" fun, check out the Facebook page for more pictures made my Glover himself and fans alike!

    Haha well, “Ihatemoronslikeyou” I can see you're pretty passionate about this. I don't see why not though! It's like when Will Smith was a rumored Captain America, i like the idea of shaking the character up!

    WI-FI thingo gave me fake card message, but i dont know if it was talking about my sd or r4i, as i have already verified my sd as genuine through kingston, so i suppose it means my R4i-GOLD is a dud, has anyone else had this and is it reliable, or is it because i tried to use the wi-fi thingo with an R4i and not the other card it is for.
