Michael Keaton is back in talks to play the villain in the new Spider-Man movie.

The Birdman star originally entered into negotiations to appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming last month, but reportedly dropped out due to salary issues.

According to Variety.com, a disagreement arose after Robert Downey, Jr. joined the cast to reprise his role as Iron Man and bosses at the studio reportedly suggested they would not be able to accommodate both actors’ salary requests.

However, editors at the publication report an agreement has since been reached.

If Michael signs on to the film, he will join Tom Holland, who will play the titular superhero in the movie, Marisa Tomei, who will portray Aunt May, and Zendaya, whose role is being kept under wraps.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is slated to hit cinemas in July, 2017.
