Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, will play Spider-Man. This is a huge win for meaningless, failed Internet campaigns and fans of the comic book series, Ultimate Spider-Man
From USA Today
USA Today reports the actor will voice the character next year in an episode of Disney XD’s animated “Ultimate Spider-Man,” which in its upcoming third season carries the subtitle “Web Warriors.” In the “Spider-Verse” story arc, a dimension-hopping Peter Parker (voiced by Drake Bell) tries to prevent the Green Goblin from collecting the DNA of Spider-Men from parallel universes, including Iron Spider, Spider-Man 2099, the Amazing Spider-Girl and Miles Morales.
The prolific actor/comedian/rapper tried to play Peter Parker in the Sony Pictures Spider-Man reboot, but Andrew Garfield got the job. The Internet was 50/50 when it came to changing the ethnicity of the beloved fictional character from Queens. Glover has used this "Black Spider-Man fame" in his comedy, rap and on The Community.
Morales is the half latino, half black high schooler that becomes the wall crawler and replaces Peter after he took a bullet for Captain America. That sounds a bit grim for daytime cartoons for kids.
