Matt Damon passed on ‘Spider-Man Homecoming 2’ villain role

Sony is trying to key in on all-star talent in the same way Marvel Studios has with their superhero films and apparently approached Matt Damon for a villain role in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel.

In a recent episode of “Meet the Movie Press,” it is reported that Damon was in talks to star in the upcoming Homecoming 2 but turned down the role.

Collider noted that “Getting Damon as the baddie would be a major get for the studio and in line with the current trend of having Oscar winners and nominees play the antagonists in superhero films.”

I personally disagree since the roles are usually short lived and the villains are killed off….Cate Blanchett, James Spader, Jeff Bridges, Robert Redford, Kurt Russell, and Michael B. Jordan.

Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 is currently set for July 5, 2019, so expect some news soon.

Jon Watts is returning to direct with Tom Holland and Zendaya starring. Also expected back are Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May and Tony Revolori as Flash. Some of the villains introduced in the first film could be central in the new film.

On the story, Cinema Blend notes that “The events that go down in both The Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 will have a serious impact on Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 — and we’re not only saying that because the wall-crawler has a part in both movies. As alluded to earlier, it has been confirmed that the events that play out in the sequel will begin literally minutes after the end of Avengers 4. The idea is that a smaller scale, street-level Spidey story will be the ideal come-down from the blockbuster high of its MCU predecessor, so we can probably expect that it will be more of self-contained narrative (similar to the one that plays out in Spider-Man: Homecoming).”
