The news of Robert Downey Jr. bringing Iron Man to the next iteration of Spider-Man was met with great enthusiasm toward the end of the week. But like in most sports trades, to get something good, you have to give up something good too and that seems to be the case for Marvel’s first foray into bringing Spidey to the screen.

While Downey’s presence will add some extra oomph to the Spider-Man movie, his addition to the cast means that Michael Keaton, who was being courted to play the villain in the project, is no longer an option. Deadline reported that Keaton is no longer in talks for the project, and Variety film reporter Justin Kroll shed a bit more light on the situation on Twitter.
