Donald Glover To Star & Produce Spider-Man Movie Based On Villain Hypno-Hustler


Recommended Posts

Sources from within have informed The Hollywood Reporter that Donald Glover is attached to star and produce a feature set in Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man universe of the Marvel Comics character Hypno-Hustler.

The project is being written by Myles Murphy, the son of actor and comedian Eddie Murphy, and will revolve around the Hypno-Hustler, one of the more obscure Spider-Man villains.  The character was created by writer Bill Mantlo, and artist Frank Springer, and is very much a product of the disco music scene when he first appeared in Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man No. 24 in 1978. His real name was Antoine Delsoin, the leader of a band called the Mercy Killers, and used hypnosis technology in his instruments on his audience in order to rob them.

Glover has always been interested in Spider-Man and Marvel characters for years and was drawn toward Hypno-Hustler due to the musical aspect of the character and the fact that he has a lesser-known character, freeing him to greater interpretations.   Plot details are being kept quiet but this project can be anything from the disco period to a modern hip-hop version or a cyberpunk future.

Sony just stick to the animated spiderverse and leave the live action stuff alone, If they couldnt pull off a Venom movie what makes them think a movie of a Villain no one knows will work even if Donald Glover is doing it

The smartest thing these guys could do now is a Miles Morales live action or Maybe a Jessica Drew Spider-Woman.

Instead they choose to focus on Madame Web and this guy

Am I the only one excited for this? After 4 seasons of Atlanta, I will never doubt Glover’s instincts. Also, it GREATLY increases the chance of getting a figure of HH, which I support.

It not glover we are worried about. It the fact that he is playing a character that has 3 to 5 issue. That like making an entire series about the randon three eye alien in the cantina of star wars that appeared for only 1 sec.
