Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club) recently revealed that he has read movie scripts for Marvel and DC projects, and now a new rumor has surfaced suggesting that Marvel wants him for a villainous role in their Spider-Man reboot.
That Hashtag Show is reporting that their source has informed them that Marvel is eyeing McConaughey for the role of Norman Osborn in the Spider-Man reboot. This source, which the claim is "reliable," based on previous Avengers: Age of Ultron info on the new Avengers lineup and Quicksilver's fate. Of course, take this latest rumor with a grain of salt.
If McConaughey does take it on, he'll be the third feature film actor to play the head of Oscorp, who eventually becomes the Green Goblin. The previous two actors to play the ruthless villain were Willem Dafoe (Platoon) and Chris Cooper (American Beauty).
You can listen to the rumor in the video below.
The new Spider-Man will appear in his own film, July 28, 2017.
