“These are big shoes to fill, and an even bigger cape, and this one fits him perfectly, which will save us money on alterations,” said co-director Phil Lord. “Also, we’d like to publicly apologize to Donald for ruining Comic-Con for him forever.”

We are all in on this casting choice. Not only does Glover have the right charisma, he is also an incredible actor. Currently, you can find him on the FX series Atlanta. If you haven’t checked it out, we highly suggest that you do. It is an incredible drama with comedic and surreal moments. Glover is also known for his part in Community and as a rapper under the name Childish Gambino.
