Donald Glover Starts Campaign to Get Audition for 'Spider-Man' Reboot


Donald Glover


The 'Community' star agrees on an idea about casting a non-white male to portray young Peter Parker and has urged fans to support him to get the role.

Since no one has been officially announced as the depicter of Peter Parker in an untitled Spider-Man reboot, Donald Glover has offered himself to tackle the character. The actor's hope was first triggered by an article from a site which mentions that the new Spider-Man should be portrayed by non-white guy.

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 Bell, Josh 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.

Donald Glover is best known for his work in the sketch group Derrick Comedy. The 26-year-old comedian/rapper currently stars on NBC series "Community", playing the role of former high school quarterback Troy Barnes.
