First Look At Spider-Man Is Donald Glover-Approved

Friday, January 14 by

The first images of Andrew Garfield in the new Spider-Man suit raced across the Internet yesterday afternoon and dominated the news cycle. Now, reactions are beginning to trickle in. Vulture caught up with the Internet’s preferred Peter Parker, Donald Glover, to ask his thoughts on the first look.

During a “Community” panel at the TCA, Glover had this to say:

“It’s kinda dope. You know what the coolest part of it is? He has a backpack, which I think is sick. The part of Spider-Man I always loved [is]: He’s young, and he’s dealing with everybody hating him and he’s got all this weight on his shoulders. [The backpack] reminds you of how young he is.”

Not only that, but if it’s a Jansport backpack it comes with a lifetime guarantee on it. So you can have that sweet baby replaced no matter what the Lizard does to it.
