We didn’t see that report coming. Currently making the rounds online is a rumor that Matt Damon declined the villain role in the untitled sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming. This, according to journalist Jeff Sneider who broke the report on his podcast Meet the Movie Press. Watch it below!

Recent reports by That Hashtag Show about the sequel indicated that the production was on the lookout for elevated/A-list male and/or female talents for the big baddie. Damon passing at the least gives us an idea of what kind of star power they’re after. On top of that, they seem to be after a new male lead alongside Tom Holland. The sequel will be partially set in Europe which could mean an international villain this time around. I sure as hell wouldn’t have minded seeing Matt Damon play a character like Kraven.
