The new pair of Spider-Man writers will have the young hero battling with an old villain that we haven’t seen in the silver screen before. Could be fun!
Sony leak emails were the keys to find out what the Sony execs have in mind as Tom Holland’s nemesis in the Spider-Man reboot. Our favorite Hollywood investigative journalists from Heroic Hollywood have the scoop!
Their sources say that Karen Moy, the Vice President of Creative Affairs over at Sony has purchased a copy of Kraven’s Last Hunt trade paperback on Amazon.
It’s safe to say Sony is looking into the possibility of Kraven as their bad guy.
I did my own research about the character and compared to the Green Goblin, this dude is actually one pretty sick psychopath:
Born into an aristocracy that had come to an end, Sergei Kravinoff (Russian: Сергей Kravinoff), also known as Kraven, became one of the world’s greatest hunters to fulfill his sense of lost nobility, but it began to bore him. Kraven’s associate (later revealed to be his half-brother) proposed to Kraven he hunt Spider-Man, and thus gave Kraven new purpose in life. Kraven gained power by drinking rare and exotic jungle elixirs given to him by his voodoo priestess lover — Calypso. These elixirs gave him the strength and speed of a savage beast, all the better to catch Spider-Man with. Despite being assisted by the Chameleon, his scheme failed and he was deported from the U.S. He returned soon, however, first alongside the Chameleon (where he was caught by Iron Man.
Comic writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone), this is your cue.
