Matthew McConaughey Passes On Villain Role For Guardians of the Galaxy 2

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:22695:]]

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.

Matthew McConaughey Rumored For Norman Osborn For New Spider-Man

Matthew McConaughey Rumored For Norman Osborn For New Spider-Man

 

Alright, alright, alright.

A couple of days ago saw Matthew McConaughey reveal he had been in talks with both Marvel and DC, and has even read a few scripts.

Now a new rumor has hit the net stating Matthew McConaughey may be up to play Norman Osborn in the new Spider-Man Sony/Marvel venture, which could mean Green Goblin or even Iron Patriot.

The rumor comes from the Hashtag Show YouTube channel that states McConaughey is being eyed for the role.

While we’ve all been focused on Spider-Man, it’s possible other characters could first appear in Captain America: Civil War as well. Norman Osborn wouldn’t be a bad choice.

Matthew McConaughey Open To DC Or Marvel Movie; Had Talks

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:20585:]]

Oscar Award-winning-actor Matthew McConaughey lets it be known he would be up for a role in a DC or Marvel movie.

Matthew McConaughey even states he’s been in talks (via Variety).

I’ve read some Marvel and DC scripts and I’ve talked about working with them on some scripts, none of which I’ll share with with you what they are — or were. Yeah, I’ve circled some of those. Nothing has been right for me yet. But I’m sure open to it.

McConaughey continues with mention of what it would take to convince him to don a cape, and at the same time, why he’s hesitant.

It’s very simple for me. I look at the script. Is the opportunity exciting? Is the money that comes with it exciting? Sure. Is it the possibility of going, “Hey you can get on a train and it can be a franchise and you could do 3, 4, 5, and have a great time as some kind of superhero or anti-hero.” But I would also look at something like that and say, “Hey, in success that means you are on the train for a while.” Contractually, you’re going to return to the character over and over. It’s something I asked myself is it something I’d want to return to. Would I be excited to go back and put the shoes on the character again? Going and doing the press tour with that group of people again? I always ask myself those questions again. It starts with the story and character.

Any ideas who McConaughey could play? Right off the bat, villains came to my mind. Brainiac? Mr. Sinister? Maybe a Doctor Strange villain?
