    Tyron Woodley Reveals Why He Left SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING


    [​IMG]

    According to Tyron Woodley, the UFC fighter has said he’s no longer a part of Spider-Man: Homecoming. The athlete revealed the news during an interview with Jay & Dan for UFC on FOX. The three talked fighting before the topic of Spider-Man surfaced, and Tyron looked a bit hesitant to go in on the topic at first.

    After all, fans learned that the UFC star was joining Homecoming after Tyron spilled the secret during an appearance on The MMA Hour. “I don’t know if I can even say this, but I’m working on a Marvel movie on Thursday in Atlanta,” he said.

    And, apparently, he might have sold the secret too soon.

    “This is what I said. I said that I could be working on a Marvel movie very soon, and I didn’t put two-and-two together,” Tyron explained. “I was in Atlanta, the only Marvel movie at that time was Spider-Man — I didn’t put those things together.”

    The fighter then went on to reference Marvel Studios and their infamous legal team. Actors involved with the Marvel Cinematic Universe have gone so far as to describe the lawyers as a team of alert snipers - and that team was not happy to learn of Tyron’s tease.

    “When you’re working on a Marvel movie, their legal department do not play. They got word of it, and their legal department started coming down on me,” he said.

    However, Tyron said he ultimately backed out of the project to pursue other projects. “I did not do it because I had a previous obligation with Fox, and I thought that was a better play longterm. And I’m a man of my word.”

    Tyron even went on to describe what his role was even though his details were vague. “I was going to play a villain in the movie,” he said, “and I think I was going to be fighting Spider-Man.”

    UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley to Appear in SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING


    [​IMG]

    This past weekend, Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland was spotted at UFC 201, and now we know why.

    Tyron Woodley won the welterweight championship at the event in Atlanta, Georgia, and he revealed on The MMA Hour (via Spider-Man News) today that he's landed a role in the reboot. Who he's playing remains a mystery of course, but he'll make for a tough foe for the wall-crawler.

    "I don’t know if I can even say this," he teased, "but I’m working on a Marvel movie on Thursday in Atlanta."

    Woodley has plenty of experience in the world of film as he's done stunts for Olympus Has Fallen and Straight Outta Compton and also has a role in the next Fast & Furious movie.

    While it would be easy to assume that he's just playing Random Thug #3, bear in mind that the last UFC champion to show up in the MCU was Georges St-Pierre, and he made quite the impact in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

    Jon Watts is behind the camera for the movie that stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in a story that takes the character back to his high school roots. Big names in the cast include Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, Robert Downey Jr. and Donald Glover. Spider-Man: Homecoming opens July 7, 2017.

    Venom? Lol nah. He's probably gonna be a bully or some shit since the premise is Spider-Man still being in high school.

    He's pretty much already shown to be the best UFC actor and in the most respectable mainstream movies out of anyone.
