Columbia Pictures announced yesterday that Andrew Garfield is going to play the title role in Columbia Pictures’ 3D Spider-Man movie, which means that the internet campaign to get Donald Glover the role has failed. Amazingly, Hollywood executives do not take their marching orders from Twitter. I’m sure Mr. Garfield will do a fine job, although the first thing that jumps into my head when I see his picture is “Edward Cullen,” not “Peter Parker.”
But to hell with reality. I’m posting this to show off Chris Schweizer’s drawing of Glover as Spider-Man, to give the world a taste of what they missed.
