Now, I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t really know a whole lot about Kraven. But if Sony insists about making a Spider-Man Universe, then in stead of Venom... characters like Kraven are very intriguing to me. An origin story of Spider-Man’s rogues makes for an interesting take on the Spider-Man Universe. I mean, to be frank all of these villains were running around long before Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider. And most of Parker’s rivals didn’t start off as bad people, but were victims of bad experiences. If Sony’s plan is to bring this Tom Holland portrayed Spider-Man into it’s world after the sequel to Homecoming, then establishing who these villains are lends a lot of depth to the characters when they finally unite, to defeat Parker.
Now casting is everything. Although I do not agree with a Venom movie, Tom Hardy is great casting, because it’s Tom Hardy. But who would place Kraven? Imagine Jeffrey Dean Morgan hunting down big game. Drinking magical elixir to gain super powers. Chomping at the bit to show he was truly the Worlds Greatest Hunter. He’s already lent so much credibility to Negan in the Walking Dead, that I could only imagine what he could do for Kraven. Who do you think should play Kraven? Should he have a standalone or team him up with Mysterio?
