Sony Pictures is developing another new Marvel film as part of its “Spider-Man” Universe, featuring a lesser-known villain Hypno-Hustler, which is going to star and be produced by Donald Glover. The film is currently untitled and is going to be written by Myles Murphy, who is the son of Eddie Murphy.

Hypno-Hustler is also known as Antoine Delsoin, who is the leader of a band called the Mercy Killers and used hypnosis technology in his instruments on his audience in order to rob them.

The Hypno-Hustler was created by Bill Mantlo, who also created Rocket Racoon and artist, Frank Springer. The character debuted in the comic book, “Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man” No. 24 in 1978.

While the character is often considered one of the worst Spider-Man villains of all time, but according to the Hollywood Reporter, Donald Glover was sparked by the musical aspect of the character and the fact that he has less Marvel cannon baggage, freeing him to greater interpretations such as making it a disco period piece, a cyberpunk future play or even a modern hip-hop version.

Donald Glover has been linked to many Spider-Man projects throughout the year, including voicing Spider-Man/Mile Morales in the “Ultimate Spider-Man” animated series and also had an appearance in “Spider-Man: Homecoming”.

Sony still owns the film rights to Spider-Man and characters within the Spider-Man comic books, which includes a number of upcoming films like “Kraven The Hunter”, “Madame Web” and a new series, “Silk: for Amazon, plus the recent film releases, “Morbius” and “Venom”.
