Kraven the Hunter set to be Spider-man’s enemy in standalone movie?

August 4th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Flying in the face of last week’s alleged casting list (here), a new rumour is that Kraven the Hunter is the big bad in the standalone Spider-man movie from Marvel/Sony.

We never really bought into the cast list anyway. Honest.


Heroic Hollywood, when not taking pot shots at other sites, reports that they may have the scoop: “Last week, Karen Moy, the Vice President of Creative Affairs over at Sony purchased a copy of Kraven’s Last Hunt trade paperback on Amazon… I did some additional sleuthing and a quick search of Karen Moy on the leaked Sony emails database over on Wikileaks reveals that she has previously made book purchases on Amazon for her former boss Amy Pascal. In my experience, where there is smoke there is fire.”

The site draws the conclusion that, with Spider-man being written currently, it’s likely that the book was research; is the new movie by-passing Doc Ock, Goblin, the Osbornes etc for Sergei Kravinoff?

In the comics, Kraven is a big game hunter who believes that putting Spidey’s head on his wall would make him the undeniable world’s finest. He also has superhuman strength and agility.

It’s a shot in the dark, but Kraven would make sense as the villain and it certainly would be fun to see him on the big screen.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
