With the news that Michael Keaton is once again in talks to play a villain in next year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, another juicy rumour has surfaced concerning the appearance of Kingpin – literally and figuratively one of Spider-Man’s biggest enemies – in the film, and as a result, the casting of Vincent D’Onofrio who plays him in Marvel’s Daredevil Netflix series.

Sadly, D’Onofrio has spoken up on Twitter, downplaying the rumour entirely. Here’s what he had to say:

He then piped up with some optimism about making it happen, however….

If enough support from the fan community made themselves heard, surely Marvel Studios would at least consider getting Kingpin – who D’Onofrio plays so brilliantly in Daredevil – into the fray? After all, he lives in the same city as Spidey – but then again, the studio and director Jon Watts are probably learning from Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s mistakes, and being wary about involving too many villains in one movie.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is slated for a July 17 release.
