Joe Manganiello is menacing in this brand new piece of fan art that imagines him as Kraven The Hunter for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man films.
Manganiello is no stranger to playing villains in superhero-films, though none of his roles have really made use of his fantastic acting chops and physique. Manganiello was Flash Thompson in 2002’s Spider-Man, but his character only just bullied Peter Parker. While he fit the Flash Thompson bill perfectly, it would have been awesome to have seen him as Agent Venom in another Spider-Man movie. A decade and a half later, he was teased as Deathstroke for the DC Extended Universe in Justice League. Unfortunately, much of Zack Snyder’s plans for the DCEU seem to have been scrapped, leaving Manganiello without a superhero gig.
Nwe artwork depicts Manganiello returning to the Spider-Man films, this time as a foe to rival Tom Holland’s character. In the fanart created by artist Olivia Design, Manganiello is teased as Kraven The Hunter. Check it out below.

It certainly would be nice to see Manganiello fully become a villain in a superhero film as he looks absolutely fantastic as Kraven. Holland’s Spider-Man movies have always used villains that fans haven’t seen in live-action before, so getting Kraven in the mix would be interesting.

New ‘Titans’ Photos Show Off Aqualad And The Original Team
DC Universe has released eight brand new images from the upcoming fourth episode of the second season of Titans entitled, "Aqualad".
"Aqualad" will explore the dynamic among Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Donna Troy/Wonder Girl (Conor Leslie), Hank Hall/Hawk (Alan Ritchson), Dawn Granger/Dove (Minka Kelly) and Garth/Aqualad (Drew Van Acker) and how four years prior, their tight-knit family dynamic developed only to have their personal feelings bleed more into their work only to be exacerbated by the arrival of a new villain.
These new images give fans a new look at Drew Van Acker as Aqualad as well as a couple of new looks at the original team united together for action. In particular, we get our best look at how the Aqualad suit translates onscreen in live-action form.

Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business.
