Actor Donald Glover ("Atlanta") will star in the upcoming Sony/Marvel live-action feature "Hypno Hustler", set in Marvel Comics "Spider-Man" universe:
"... 'Antoine Desloin' is lead singer of the 'The Mercy Killers', going by the name of 'Hypno-Hustler'. He and his band were scheduled to perform at a nightclub called 'Beyond Forever'. When the club's manager catches Hypno-Hustler robbing his safe, Hypno-Hustler used his hypnotic equipment on the manager.
"When it came time to perform, Hypno-Hustler and his band used their hypnotizing equipment on the audience in a plan to rob them as well. 'Peter Parker' was at the club at the time and changed into 'Spider-Man'. During the fight, Spider-Man discovered that Hypno-Hustler's headphones protected him from his own hypnotic music.
"Spider-Man managed to remove them from Hypno-Hustler causing him to become a victim of his own hypnosis. When the audience was free of the hypnosis, Hypno-Hustler and his Mercy Killers were webbed up and left for the police.
"Besides performing hypnosis with the aid of his guitar, the criminal's boots can also emit knockout gas on demand, with retractable knives in the soles..."
