Donald Glover is a man who can do it all. The star got his start on the comedy circuit, but Glover has gone on to earn Grammy nominations for his Childish Gambino work and nabs roles in franchises like Star Wars. And, now, Glover is saying he won't rule out a future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Earlier this year, Glover made his MCU debut with Spider-Man: Homecoming. The actor played Aaron Davis, a criminal looking to buy weaponry from the Vulture. The role was a small one in the recent flick, but it set up Aaron for a return as the Prowler. During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Glover said he won’t say no to a MCU comeback if the chance comes about.
The actor was the subject of a lengthy piece by THR, and the site writes that Glover is “not ruling out a future with Spider-Man.”
Right now, Glover has his hands full with on-going projects. The actor is wrapping up his work on Lucasfilm’s Han Solo standalone movie. Glover was cast as a young iteration of Lando Calrissian, and the actor will begin work on the second season of Atlanta when his Star Wars gig wraps.
There’s no telling how the MCU may circle back to Glover’s character, but fans are hoping the franchise does. Audiences waited nearly a decade to see Spider-Man enter the franchise, and the appearance of Aaron Davis is a promising one. There are a few good ways Marvel Studios could rope Glover back into one of the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequels, and you can check them out below:
The Prowler Rises
The most obvious way Glover can be ushered back into a MCU film will be through the Prowler. Aaron Davis is the Ultimate Marvel version of the baddie, and the Prowler could set in to become a major adversary for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man.
In the comics, Aaron Davis and his brother Jefferson were a couple of juvenile delinquents. The former kept up the lifestyle and became the ‘Prowler,’ a well-known burglar. He ends up stealing tech from the Tinkerer which gives him to an armored suit and electrical gauntlets. Aaron ends up going head-to-head against his universe’s take on Spider-Man, and the baddie winds up dying by the hands of his superhero nephew.
Enter Miles Morales
If Marvel Studios doesn’t want to go all-in on the Prowler, the MCU can still use Aaron as a bride to Miles Morales. Glover’s character is the uncle of the boy, and fans are just waiting for the franchise to introduce Miles’ take on Spider-Man to the world.
If you are not familiar with Miles, then you should know he is one of the most popular iteration of Spider-Man to date. The character was born in the Ultimate Marvel universe, and he takes up Peter Parker’s mantle after being bitten by one of Oscorp’s smuggled radioactive spiders. Miles becomes a vigilante after watching Peter die at the hands of the Green Goblin, and the boy comes to fight his uncle after he learns Aaron is a well-known criminal.
