Remember back when we were all dream casting The Amazing Spider-Man, and it was the general consensus of people who have no say in these things that Donald Glover should definitely, without a doubt, gimme one good reason why not, play Peter Parker? And then Tobey Maguire 2.0 was cast instead and we all forgot about it/found other things to be outraged about?

Well, Donald Glover didn’t forget about it. And now he’s finally getting his chance to sling some webs. Granted, he won’t be playing Peter Parker. Instead he’ll be playing Miles Morales, the character who took over the Spidey mask after Parker’s death in Ultimate Spider-Man back in 2011. And this is beyond fitting, since Brian Michael Bendis has said it was Glover who originally inspired him to write the character.

Miles will appear only in one episode of Disney XD’s animated Ultimate Spider-Man next year, when Peter Parker is jumping through dimensions. In Miles’ dimension, of course, Parker is dead. Check out a preview clip here:
