Earlier it was learned Pom Klementieff has been cast in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 in a mystery role (maybe Mantis?), and now it's learned Marvel and James Gunn wanted Matthew McConaughey to play the film's villain.
In their own report on Klementieff getting cast, Variety mentions: "Marvel and Gunn wanted Matthew McConaughey to play the villain in the superhero sequel, but the actor recently passed, leaving the search for that part still in progress. Sources say that decision should be made in the coming weeks, as production is expected to begin in early 2016."
A few months ago saw McConaughey make mention he has read a few Marvel and DC scripts.
Any guesses who the villain could be?
He might have played a good Adam Warlock/Magus.
"Guardians of the Galaxy 2" has a May 5, 2017 release.
