With Spider-Man: Far From Home now in cinemas and impressing any and all who have seen it, the attention has turned to which villain(s) may be next in line to face off with Tom Holland’s Web-head. And if director Jon Watts gets his way, we may see Kraven the Hunter sooner rather than later.
Speaking to Uproxx about that very topic, Watts enthused, “I would love Kraven. It’s just the trick of how do you do Kraven in a movie? But no, I don’t know who’s next. I always like to think about in terms of what’s going to be the most difficult thing for Peter. So that’s going to be the trick.”
Many savvy Spidey fans were half-expecting Kraven to turn up in Far From Home once Numan Acar was cast in the movie. Despite striking a massive resemblance to Sergei Kravinoff, Acar instead ended up playing a character called Dimitri who worked alongside Nick Fury and Maria Hill.
As a character, Kraven is one of Spider-Man’s most long-standing foes. The character’s roots go back to 1946’s The Amazing Spider-Man #15 and the master huntsman was even a part of the original Sinister Six.
Whether we get Kraven in the inevitable Far From Home follow-up, we’ll have to wait and see. What we do know, though, is that many fans would absolutely to see Sergei make it to the silver screen.
