The year was 2010. Casting was still underway to find the new actor to play Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man, and a fan campaign began to cast Community star Donald Glover as the Web-Slinger. While the campaign did gain traction over social media, in the end, the actor wasn't awarded an audition, and Andrew Garfield was cast in the role. However, six years later now Glover may finally get the opportunity to appear in a Spider-Man movie.

It was reported today that Donald Glover is in talks to join Spider-Man: Homecoming, but details about his character are being kept secret. While the prospect of finally seeing Glover appear is exciting to many fans, but as per usual with mystery castings, we're left wondering what role the production has in mind for him. Should the casting go through, Marvel will likely announce who Glover playing in the near future, but for now, here are our top five guesses as to who he might play in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Robbie Robertson

Working at The Daily Bugle would be intolerable for Peter Parker if he only interacted with J. Jonah Jameson on a regular basis. Fortunately, there are a number of employees there who are much more personal. One of those people is Joe "Robbie" Robertson, one of the newspaper's top editors. Robbie has frequently served as both a friend and father figure to Peter Parker over the decades, and he's also able to talk reason into Jameson when the blustery publisher starts getting too angry about Spider-Man. Robbie was played by Bill Nunn in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies, but he didn't have any importance other than talking to Jameson. Spider-Man: Homecoming is the chance for Robbie to play a meaningful role on the big screen, and while Glover's version wouldn't necessarily have to be the Bugle's second-in-command given his younger age, it would definitely be wise for him to be a mentor to Peter while he's working at the paper.
