So Marvel fans have been anticipating Miles Morales, the animated Black Spiderman inspired by Donald Glover, for a while now! This character is set to debut in the animated, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which tells the story of a Brooklyn raised kid attempting to juggle his life in a regular world, only find out that there are other “spider-men” with powers he seems to possess as well!

Swae Lee on the other-hand, thinks this animated character needs to come to life, and feels that he is the perfect fit for the part!

“It’s only right, if anyone’s gonna be the first black Spider-Man in a real movie it should be me,” he told TMZ. “Especially because I made the soundtrack Miles Morales was singing in the movie, it’s only right I be the black Spider-Man, so Marvel, we need to get together.”

Side-note! The artist said this in 15-degree weather in NYC in nothing but shorts! He was definitely, “…fighting the cold!”

Lee recorded “Sunflower” for the Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack along with Post Malone.

Do you think Swae Lee is the perfect fit for this role?
