Matt Damon has reportedly passed on playing the villain in the upcoming “Spider-Man: Homecoming” sequel according to the latest episode of Meet the Movie Press.
There are no details as to what character he would potentially play. Michael Keaton scored acclaim for his turn as the main antagonist Adrian Toomes/The Vulture in the first film.
It is expected that the villain will be one not realised on screen before such as Mysterio, Scorpion, Hobgoblin, Chameleon, Alistair Smythe or Kraven the Hunter.
Production on the film is expected to begin in June with Tom Holland, Zendaya and Marisa Tomei returning.
