USA: Donald Glover grew up with Spider-Man as his No. 1 superhero, and while he doesn't get to wear web-shooters or red and blue tights, at least he's getting to voice a precocious version of Marvel Comics' iconic wall-crawler.
So glad it's just the voice on the cartoon. The series is so bland and Peter Parker is so much more interesting. It will be fine as a compliment on the show, but until it gets some good stories that's all I'd want to see.
"I never liked Superman that much, because I was like, 'Yo, this dude can't die. It's too easy,' " Glover says. "Batman is pretty fly. He's a close second, just because he doesn't really have powers. He's just a justice-driven vigilante. Superman has been defeated, and did die on one occasion. One of his losses came at the hands of Batman himself, nicknamed Bat-God due to his "prep-time" superpower, which enables him to defeat anyone and anything, even Darkseid. Along with the "Spider-Man can be anybody" comment, this rules out Donald Glover as someone who knows anything about comics, or even cares.
Just because you don't know every facet of a character doesn't mean your opinion isn't valid. It's not like he's making some huge statement here, just giving us some of his casual thoughts on the matter.
I wouldn't watch a Miles Morales centric Spider-man. It just has no appeal to me. Peter Parker is now and forever shall be the one and ONLY Spider-Man to me.
