Actor Matthew McConaughey 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 role as a villain in their Spider-Man reboot. 

A website called Point Of Geeks reports via private sources that Marvel wants McConaughey to play Norman Osborn, aka the Green Goblin, in its upcoming Spider-Man reboot.  

Point Of Geeks claims that there have been "basic talks" between the actor and the studio.

Though it does seem odd that Marvel would return to Osborn again. Since he was the Big Bad in the original 2002 Spider-Man and showed up in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. A version of Osborn that's closer to the current comics has yet to appear onscreen, but it still might be too soon to use him. 

That being said, landing an actor like Matthew McConaughey usually boosts almost every project. And his range as an actor is incredible. And there are far worse choices of actors to play Norman Osborn on screen in a Spider-Man movie.

Do you think McConaughey is going to play Norman? Maybe Marvel approached McConaughey, and he told them that the role isn’t for him. What do you think? Would you like to see Norman Osborn return, played by Matthew McConaughey?
