Donald Glover Joins Cast of ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ But Not As Spider-Man


For all of us people on planet Earth, we know that Spider-Man has never quite worked out on the big screen. We’ve gotten a few ‘halfway-theres’ with Andrew Garfield as our dorky Peter Parker, but that wasn’t without spending half a decade with more Tobey Maguire than anyone ever asked for. But like any great franchise, it refuses to die. When one dies, there are three reboots and Kickstarters lying in the wake. And now we’ll get to see Donald Glover have his shot at making his mark on our collective Spider-Man cinematic history. No, he won’t be Spider-Man himself to much of my dismay and the details of his character are being kept under lock and key, but I think we can expect some good things from Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Homecoming is Sony’s reboot of its Spider-Man franchise, which it has partnered with Marvel to produce, and the movie is due to begin production later this month.

We saw Tom Holland for the first time when he stole the show in Captain America: Civil War. He will continue to play Spider-Man in Sony’s reboot.

The project has been quietly casting up and the roll call includes Michael Keaton as a villain, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May and Zendaya as the female lead.

That’s some top-billing. And it gets even better with RDJ continuing to show up as Tony Stark, Tony Revolori in another cryptic role and Laura Harrier, who will be stepping outside of her soap opera sphere.
