For some time now, fans have been wondering who actor/rapper Donald Glover was signed to play in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. Prior to Tom Holland’s official casting as Peter Parker, fans clamored for Marvel to cast Glover as Miles Morales, an alternate version of the costumed web-slinger. In the latest trailer to the movie, which comes out on July 7th, we get our first look at Glover’s character.
In Glover’s short cameo, he appears to play an advisory role to Spider-Man. He tells a costumed Peter that he’s “gotta get better at this part of the job,” hinting at the possibility that Glover’s character might also be a superhero. Or maybe he’s just an opinionated New Yorker. Either way, I’m excited.
