Mystery Team Sword Club, ASSEMBLE! The Donald Glover for SPIDER-MAN campaign has officially begun. It all started when the idea of casting an African-American Spider-Man in the upcoming Marc Webb SPIDER-MAN reboot was purposed and Glover’s name was casually thrown into the ring. Soon, Glover (who most recently stared in the cult hit MYSTERY TEAM and stars on NBC’s Community) caught wind of the idea and it’s all snowballed from there.
Obviously pleased with the idea of playing Spider-Man (honestly what nerd wouldn’t be?) Glover went to work on getting the buzz out. The “hash-tag” #donald4spiderman was created and the subsequent re-tweet bomb dropped.

Here are the thoughts of comedian Donald Glover, 26, who plays Troy on the NBC sitcom “Community.” on  Black History Month:

“We [America] are made of so many different parts. That’s important, to look at all the achievements that have been made. As for Black History Month in general, I’m kinda like, ‘Eh. Not that it’s a bad thing, but I don’t think a month is really substantial. I don’t think it’s a thing that can be bundled into a month. In a larger aspect, I don’t want to be categorized. I think a lot of African Americans have a lot of trouble trying to break out of categories of what people think they are and who they are, and you don’t ever want to label yourself.”
