If you combine musicals and geeky things, you get some pretty great results. Case in point, when the cast of Star Trek Discovery did their Rent parody. Or how about today, when we saw James Monroe Iglehart AKA The Genie from “Aladdin” on Broadway, and currently doing double duty in “Hamilton” as Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson, do a rap about Spider-Man!
Iglehart just penned his first comic in “Marvel Comics Presents” issue 3, which star Spider-Man in an interesting tale. It also combines his love of geeky things with his adoration of professional wrestling. For crying out loud, the man just attended Wrestlemania 35 this weekend!
In a video released by Marvel Entertainment from their show “This Week in Marvel”, Iglehart graces us and host Ryan Penagos, AKA Agent M, with a rap about Spidey, and you need to stop what you are doing and give it a watch.
Check out the video below:
“Marvel Presents” issue 3 is currently available in your friendly neighborhood comic store, or wherever you buy your books from.
