Childish Gambino is the stage name of comedian Donald Glover. Glover got the name from a Wu-Tang name generator he found online. He also produces music and DJ's under the name "mcDJ."
Along with performing rap as Childish Gambino, actor Donald Glover stars on the TV show Community and writes skits as part of the sketch comedy troupe Derrick Comedy. The group even released a full-length movie in 2009 called Mystery Team that played in a limited number of theatres.
In May 2010, Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover) started a Twitter campaign to try to help him land an audition for the role of Peter Parker in the Amazing Spider-Man reboot. Spider-Man creator Stan Lee soon expressed his support for Glover's campaign. One year later, artist Brian Michael Bendis revealed an African-American Spider Man. Bendis said that the character was created before Glover's campaign started but that the actor heavily influenced his concept of what the new Peter Parker should look like.
