Community Star Inspired the New Ultimate Spidey

Ultimate Spider-man Fallout #4

This morning in a USA Today exclusive, Marvel revealed the identity of Parker’s replacement for the Ultimate Spider-Man series, Miles Morales. If some of you recall, Marvel decided to kill off Peter Parker in their ‘Ultimate‘ universe with their recent “Death of Spider-man” story arc leaving the role vacant in their alternate universe. Unfortunately not much is known about Morales apart from being of Spanish and African decent. However,  the article contained a bit of trivia that caught my eye — the choice was inspired by Donald Glover’s #donald4spiderman twitter campaign.  While he didn’t land the role in the upcoming reboot, Donald managed to catch author Brian Bendis’ attention. After seeing Glover wearing the costume during an episode of Community, he immediately thought “I’d like to read that book.” Awesome, right?  I’m a huge fan of Glover, so I’m curious as to what he thinks about it all. For those who care, Parker can still be found alive and well in the latest issues of Amazing Spider-Man. Miles will have his official debut in Ultimate Fallout #4 which hits stores tomorrow, August 3rd.
