In the last 5 “Spider man” films we have seen quite a few big villains from the rogue gallery of our favorite web-head. In Sam Raimi’s trilogy we saw the portrayals of Norman Osborn as the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus a.k.a Doc Ock, Sandman, Venom and Harry Osborn as the Green Goblin. When Marc Webb took over and tried to reinvent the franchise we got to see The Lizard, Electro, Rhino and another portrayal of Harry Osborn as the Green Goblin.
With this brand new Spiderman reboot coming in 2017 many wonder who will Spidey face this time and according to rumors it is none other than Kraven the Hunter. Although this is not confirmed, Marvel head Kevin Feige has hinted that we will see a new villian in this film and not another portrayal of one from the past. Also Sony executive Karen Moy recently purchased the “Kraven’s Last Hunt” comic off of Amazon. Moy has in the past been known to purchase material for other Sony executives before, further adding to the rumors.
For those who are not familiar with Kraven the Hunter, he is a russian game hunter who proved to be a deadly foe for Spiderman as he possessed incredible strength and speed, along with his cunning skills as a hunter. He famously in the comics cptured and druged Spidey and proceeded to bury him alive. He then dressed up as the wall-crawler and began fighting crime in New York to prove that he was just as good as and superior to Spider-Man. Spider-Man eventually dug out of the grave and fought Kraven in one last final bout.
The new Spiderman film will see Tom Holland be the third actor to play the webslinger. Joining him will be Oscar Winner Marisa Tomei and directing the film will be rising director Jon Watts who is working off a script written by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M Goldstein. No other word has been mentioned as far as the rest of the cast and crew.
