Donald Glover who has been a popular fan-favorite for a while noe, since he voiced the character Mile Morales in the Ultimate Spider-Man TV series - as well as having been linked to the role for years now. Won’t comment on any involvement in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot.
Glover, refused to confirm or deny in a recent interview with The Today Show that he’ll play Peter Parker, Miles Morales, or any other SpideyVerse character.
"I can't say I'm the next Spider-Man," Glover said.
But, when asked if that meant that he wouldn't be playing Spider Man, Glover said this:
"I can't say that either. I mean, it's not out yet..."
But then he gave a slight glimmer of hope by saying this: "There's been talkings about it…I mean, I'd be honored to play it. It's really not up to me.” Which makes it sound as though he's been told he's in consideration for the role, and to not talk directly about it.
The Spider-Man reboot webs into theaters on July 28, 2017.
