Warning - this article contains spoilers for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
Glover became one of Spider-Verse 2's biggest surprise additions when he became the first live-action actor to appear in Sony Pictures' wildly-successful animated ride through the Multiverse.
Along with a wild cameo by Peggy Lu's Mrs. Chen from Tom Hardy's Venom movies and a few direct references to the three other live-action Spider-Man universe, Glover's inclusion marked a huge step into new territory for the Spider-Verse.
Donald Glover Shows Spider-Verse 2 Costume
Costume designer Trayce Gigi Field shared the first behind-the-scenes look at Donald Glover's live-action Prowler costume seen in Sony Pictures' Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
Field got a picture next to Glover fully suited up in his outfit from Spider-Verse 2, in which he played a Multiversal take on Aaron Davis/The Prowler in a quick cameo moment.
In the original movie, Miles' uncle, Aaron Davis, was revealed to be the Prowler, who's been a regular villain for Spider-Man throughout the character's Marvel Comics history. 2018's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse utilized him as both a secondary antagonist, played by future Blade star Mahershala Ali.
This isn't the first time Glover has played this role, as he portrayed Aaron Davis in the MCU for a couple of scenes in 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming. It's currently unknown if this is the same Aaron Davis from that universe, although a deleted scene from that movie confirmed that he was Miles' uncle.
Will Donald Glover Return in Spider-Verse 3 or Elsewhere?
With Donald Glover's appearance in Spider-Verse 2 being the first time that the animated movies included anything from any live-action universe, it opens the door for him to explore the role further far beyond just these movies.
Glover hasn't been seen in the MCU since his few minutes of screentime in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and there's only been one nod to a Black Spider-Man existing in the MCU thanks to a line from Jamie Foxx's Electro in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
In terms of the animated world, Miles is now stuck on an unknown Earth and about to face the Prowler version of himself, many will certainly wonder if Glover's own Prowler will be of service in helping the film's young protagonist.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is now playing in theaters worldwide.
