Childish Gambino will lend his voice to an upcoming animated Spider-Man series. 

According to USA Today, Childish Gambino - who acts under his real name Donald Glover - will be the voice of Spider-Man as he enters an alternate universe in the upcoming season of Disney XD's Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors.

In that alternate universe Spider-Man's alter-ego isn't Peter Parker, but a half-Hispanic, half-black 13-year-old named Miles Morales.  Gambino says he's "very grateful" for the opportunity to play Spidey.
