Donald Glover and his brother, Stephen, are writing Disney Plus’ Lando series SuperNayr

It isn’t entirely clear when or why Simien left Lando, but in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter from earlier this week, he said that “the last thing I was told was that they loved it but needed to put a pin in it until they could figure out everybody’s availability.”

Despite that positive feedback, Simien also expressed some concern about his identity as a Black, gay man negatively impacting the viability of projects he develops for studios.

“But I can’t help but wonder, ‘Am I too Black? Am I too queer? And people just don’t want to say that,’” Simien said. “Because it seems like I develop things with these companies and they just never happen for reasons unknown.”
