Between Tobey Maguire‘s reign as our friendly big-screen Spider-Man and Andrew Garfield‘s, there was a brief period when Donald Glover was pushing for the job. That never came to be, of course, but now he’s finally getting his chance to play the webslinger all the same. The catch: it’s in a cartoon, not a live-action big-budget movie franchise.
Glover is set to voice Miles Morales in an upcoming episode of Disney XD’s Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors, which has Peter Parker (voiced by Drake Bell) passing through different parallel universes. Watch a clip featuring the Donald Glover Spider-Man after the jump.

Marvel animation fans are probably well aware G4 has been running anime-inspired cartoons featuring the X-Men, Iron Man and, starting this week, Blade, on Friday nights. However, based on the time slot alone, it’s pretty obvious those shows are skewed to an audience slightly older than kids.

Disney XD will premiere a Marvel block of programming called the Marvel Universe on April 1 with the launch of Ultimate Spider-Man. Read more after the jump. Read More »
