Donald Glover for Spiderman!

Well this sure is an interesting developing story!

As everyone knows Hollywood is planning a Reboot of the Spiderman films and it was recently announced that an African American Spiderman was being considered and Donald Glover’s name was mentioned.  Well ever since the internet has been burning up with the idea.

No one seems more excited than Glover who has started a Twitter campaign to win the role.  The campaign has even caught the eye of Marvel Comics!

Obviously pleased with the idea of playing Spider-Man (honestly what nerd wouldn’t be?) Glover went to work on getting the buzz out. The “hash-tag” #donald4spiderman was created and the subsequent re-tweet bomb dropped. The tag started to trend in several cities like NYC, Chicago, and California… 
He later started a campaign to get an audition for the role in the upcoming "Spider-Man" movie, writing on his Twitter on Sunday, May 30, "You guys. Let's make this happen. #donald4spiderman." Soon after, fans even created a Donald Glover 4 Spiderman!! Facebook fanpage
As of late, it is reported that the short list for "Spider-Man" reboot is down to five candidates. Those who are allegedly among the list are Jamie BellJosh Hutcherson, Alden Ehrenreich, Frank Dillane and Andrew Garfield
The upcoming film will see Peter Parker as a teenager who grapples with both contemporary human problems and amazing super-human crises. Marc Webb is on board to direct, while James Vanderbilt has been tapped to work on the script. This "Spider-Man" reboot is planned to arrive in U.S. theaters on July 3, 2012. 

Glover is planning a “Twitter Bomb tonight… make sure you pass on the #donald4spiderman tag!
