Wait wait wait. What?
So, Community’s Donald Glover (who, btw, is extremely funny in stand-up. Highly recommend seeing him if you get the chance) launched a bit of a campaign last night, and well, it seems to be gaining some ground.
He then began to ask people to make it happen, with a hashtag: #donald4spiderman
Then things got out of control.
On his tumblr blog (mildly NSFW language), Donald posted about his desire to play the webslinger, with a slightly ridiculous photoshopped image of himself. Then some fans made a facebook group, which at press time has over 1200 members. While that won’t exactly get him cast, it’s not bad for about 12 hours. His hashtag got to the point where it was trending #2 in Chicago and #3 in NYC- no small feat.
So what do you think? Could Glover’s goofy antics from one of the best sitcoms on TV translate into the superheroics of Peter Parker?
