Looks like Miles Morales is finally going to be played by someone who's wanted to play Spider-Man for a long time, and the casting couldn't be perfect to boot since he's the actor who inspired the creation of the character in the first place.
According to USA Today and CBR, Community alum Donald Glover is going to provide the voice of Miles in the upcoming new season of Disney XD's Ultimate Spider-Man series in "Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors". Glover, who dressed up as Spidey in the show, inspired writer Brian Michael Bendis to create the new webslinging hero for the Ultimate Spider-Man comics following the death of Peter Parker in that universe. Now, it comes full circle, and Glover will voice the role in the show and meet other Spider-Men in the process during the "Spider-Verse" story arc that will play out in the season.
The brand new season of "Ultimate Spider-Man" premieres on August 31 on Disney XD.
