Donald Glover campaigns to be the next Spider-Man

Hollywoodnews.com: Could “Community” star Donald Glover become the next Spider-Man? If he does, he’ll have his Facebook fans to thank for it (in part, anyway).

Facebook has become the new “casting couch” of Hollywood legend. Anytime fans decide whom they’d like to see in a particular project, they take to the popular social media site and start making cyber noise. It worked for Betty White, earning the Hollywood icon a spot hosting “Saturday Night Live.” And now a fan page has been set up lobbying to get Glover, a former “30 Rock” writer and current “Community” co-star, a shot at playing Peter Parker.

And yes, Glover is black.

Visit the page here.

This started when, in a piece for io9, Marc Bernadin wrote that the next Spider-Man shouldn’t be just another white guy. Commenters took the ball and ran with it, eventually landing on Glover as the perfect choice. Glover, himself, weighed in on his Twitter feed, saying, “I don’t want to just be given the role. I want to be able to audition. I truly love Spider-Man.”

He’d be a great fit, and an inspired choice. He has the right sense of humor, and he’s built like scrawny Peter Parker. Now, I don’t think the studio would ever go with an African-American Spider-Man, which is sad. Considering how bad “Spider-Man 3” was, why not go in a completely different direction and totally shake things up?
