The Amazing Spider-Man 3 Update: When The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was near its ending, teasers were shown who Spider-Man’s future opponents will be. Doctor Octopus’ tentacles, Vulture’s wings, and Rhino’s armor were shown which many thinks hints the arrival of Sinister 6 in the film’s third sequel.
However, director Marc Webb is strongly hinting at his desire to use Kraven The Hunter in an upcoming movie.
Comic Book Movie recently had the chance to speak with Webb, and when asked about which unused Spider-Man villains the director was interested in exploring in the future, the filmmaker’s answer focused primarily on expert hunter. Said the director,
“Kraven. Kraven. I like the idea of Kraven. The Vulture. Ock. I always thought the idea of Mysterio was interesting. Maybe Scorpion. But really, Kraven I think is kind of interesting.”
With the exception of Scorpion, all of the villains that Webb mentioned were teased at the end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but it’s still hard to predict exactly what’s in store for the future of Sony’s Spider-Man Cinematic Universe. If the director wants to use any of these characters, it will have to be in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, as he is not currently attached to helm The Amazing Spider-Man 4 and directing duties for The Sinister Six and Venom are going to Drew Goddard and Alex Kurtzman, respectively. So is this Webb’s way of hinting at Kraven the Hunter being the central antagonist of the next Spider-Amazing Man movie?
In the comics, Kraven the Hunter (a.k.a. Sergei Kravinoff) is the world’s greatest big game hunter. He enter’s Spider-Man’s life because Kraven believes that capturing and killing the wall-crawler would cement his place in history. He doesn’t use weapons, but has superhuman strength, agility and senses that allow him to take down any prey with just his bare hands. He was one of the founding members of the Sinister Six along with Doctor Octopus, Vulture, Electro, Mysterio, and Sandman.
