Donald Glover talking about the comments he received during his campaign to be the next Spider-Man (x)

“I was talking about it with Dan Eckman, who directed my Bonfire video. Can you imagine that trailer? That would be dope. Like it makes sense… a poor black kid in Queens. Like it just fits.”

It’s fucking 2011 and you don’t think there’s a black kid who lives with his aunt in Queens… who likes science? Who takes photography?”


As the resident NYer in GQ, I can say that the person who wrote that letter has clearly never been to Queens. ~ LP

    He should’ve been Spiderman. I hope they make a Miles Morales Spiderman movie and Donald Glover plays him.
