Donald Glover Hangs Up Spider-Man Suit: A Humorous Look at Age and Spider-Verse Future

Donald Glover despite a history with Spider-Man, acknowledges he's likely "too old" to take on the role of the web-slinger.

In 2010, Glover campaigned for a role in The Amazing Spider-Man. However, the part ultimately went to Andrew Garfield.

Glover has previously played Miles Morales' uncle Aaron in Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (2022).

Glover humorously expresses that while he might be too old for Spider-Man, he wouldn't be surprised if he's called back into the Spider-Verse for another role.

During a Lie Detector Test with co-star Maya Erskine, Glover dismisses the idea that his Spider-Verse cameo was Sony's apology for not casting him as Spider-Man.

Glover suggests that a live-action Miles Morales might happen and he could see himself in a different role, possibly as Prowler, given his current age.

Glover's brief live-action cameo in Across the Spider-Verse is seen as a full-circle moment, considering he previously voiced Miles Morales in the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series.

Miles Morales' co-creator, Brian Michael Bendis was inspired by a scene in "Community" where Glover wears Spider-Man pajamas.
