In a few months, audiences will say hello to the friendly, neighbourhood Spider-Man as he swings his way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The upcoming film – Spider-Man: Homecoming – will details the wall-crawler as he learns to harness his powers against the backdrop of a larger universe. Jon Watts’ film will take the character back to his roots in high school, as he takes on Michael Keaton’s The Vulture. Interestingly, when the movie’s star – Tom Holland – was asked who he would like to play a villain in a future instalment, the actor said he would like to see Kraven The Hunter!
Talking to MTV, Holland had the following to say:
“You know what? Kraven is one of my favourites for a cameo. I always wanted Aquaman to play Kraven, but he’s now DC. I thought that would be super cool.”
Now, in case you did not notice, Holland is talking about Justice League star, Jason Momoa. The actor has appeared in the hit HBO show, Game of Thrones, but will portray the King of Atlantis in the upcoming DC Extended Universe. The possibility of Kraven appearing in a future film does seem pretty likely, all things considered. President of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, did state that we will see new and different villains in the upcoming Spider-Man series; so, Kraven’s arrival seems to be a matter of when, not if.
Would you guys like to see Kraven appear in a Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel? With the inclusion of The Vulture, it would be rather interesting to see The Sinister Six appear in a future sequel. Who would you guys like to see Kraven? I would like to see Loving and Exodus: Gods & Kings star, Joel Edgerton take on the role.
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theatres everywhere on July 7, 2017.
