As first reported by USA Today, Glover has lent his pipes to the role of Miles Morales, a half-Hispanic, half-black 13-year-old who meets Peter Parker when Spider-Man prime travels to the alternate dimension where Miles crawls walls.

“If you’ve read Miles Morales comics [which debuted in August 2011], Donald’s voice nails what you’ve been reading,” the VP of Marvel Television’s animation division tells the Nation’s Newspaper.

    After that clip, I would definitely watch a Miles Morales based Spidey Show.

    Bring it on Marvel.

    Since Andrew Garfield said that he wants to leave after AS3… DG could be introduced as Live Action Miles Morales there.
