Donald Glover nearly reprised his role as Aaron Davis, the uncle of Miles Morales, in "Spider-Man: Far From Home".
The 35-year-old actor had a brief role in "Spider-Man: Homecoming" as Aaron Davis, the uncle of Miles Morales - an alternate version of the hero who appeared in the 2018 animated film version of the comic 'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse' - and writers Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers initially planned to bring him back for the latest instalment of the Marvel franchise, but had to "give up" on the idea.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, McKenna said: "We definitely considered that. We definitely thought, 'How great it would be to bring back Aaron Davis again?'
"Other considerations come in. We went down that road a little bit, then the movie really spent such little time in Queens and gets to Europe pretty quickly. Some ideas you just have to give up."
Sommers added: That's really what it came down to. We loved that character and we wanted to do it, but we just wanted to get out of New York and get on the trip as soon as possible.
