Never forget that Donald Glover will sometimes put the rapping (no matter how dope it is) to the left to tap into his acting side. A few years ago Donald led a campaign to portray Spider-Man in the then-unreleased reboot, which as we all know would ultimately go to Andrew Garfield. Now, Donald is finally getting his chance as he will provide the voice of the web-slinger in the upcoming animated series, Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors.

According to Marvelous News:

Presented in a multi-episode story format, “Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors” not only pairs Spidey with the Avengers, but introduces new heroes and villains from the Marvel Universe such as Agent Venom, Amadeus Cho, Cloak & Dagger, and Ka-Zar. Additionally, for the first time in animation history, Miles Morales who is being voiced by Community actor Donald Glover teams up with Spider-Man for a new adventure and he’s not the only Spidey that Peter Parker will encounter in this action-packed season.

Donald will portray Miles Morales, a Spider-Man from an alternate Marvel reality, and the series will debut August 31st on the Disney XD network. Watch a preview of the series, with Donald, below.
