Hey Otakus and Geeks Fans, Today we have some news from Marvel Animation. Donald Glover
( Star of NBCs Community ) will be the voice of Miles Morales in Disney XD Ultimate Spider-Man Web Warriors. Years back Donald Glover, a self-proclaimed Spider-Man fanatic, made headlines for launching a twitter campaign to get himself cast as Spider-Man in Sony’s reboot of the franchise. He gets his wish in a way voicing the young new Spiderman.
It all happens in the new season premiere of Web Warriors, airing this Sunday on Disney XD. From USA Today:
The cartoon Miles is very close to the comic-book version: The 13-year-old is still getting used to being a superhero when he meets the dimension-hopping Peter (Drake Bell), who's trying to stop his old nemesis the Green Goblin from collecting the DNA of various Spider-Men — from Spider-Man Noir to the porcine hero Spider-Ham— for nefarious reasons.
Glover told USA Today, ”I don’t think it’s hit me necessarily yet how big of a deal that is, I admire anybody who allows themselves to be themselves. Especially a kid.”
Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors Premieres: August 31st on Disney XD
