Marc Webb names which villain he wants in The Amazing Spider-man 3

05.05.2014

With THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 opening this weekend, the almost $100 million it made at the domestic box office would have been enough to greenlight a sequel...if the studio wasn't already committed to at least one more movie with Andrew Garfield and Marc Webb and numerous spin-offs planned. The only question is: where will Webb take the franchise next? With THE SINISTER SIX and VENOM movies already on their way to the big screen, the question will be if the bad guy in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3 will connect to one of those movies or be an all new foe for the hero.

During an interview with Comic Book.com, director Marc Webb was asked which villain he would like to tackle next. His answer was not surprising given what we know about the next films in development but should serve as a positive sign for fans of the comic book series.

“Kraven,” Webb replied. “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.”

Kraven is a character fans have clamored for as he is not quite as supernatural as enemies like Lizard, Venom, or Electro. Kraven's psychopathic personality and enhanced physical abilities would make him one of the more unique villains in a Spider-man movie. While THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 has furthered the story thread that villains have been manufactured, in part, by OsCorp, Kraven would make for a nice breath of fresh air in the conspiracy-centric mythology of the new films. The question now is who could play a good Kraven in the next movie?

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3 is slated for release on June 10, 2016. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 is now playing.

I always thought Antonio Banderas would make an awesome Kraven.

I'd prefer Mysterio but Kraven would be my second choice. Manu Bennett would kick ass but I think he's on some show.

Screw haters

There are so many actors now that could do an awesome Kraven. Mads Mikkelsen would be perfect, he's doing an awesome role on Hannibal, with the Right wigs and facial hair, Bam! They could do "Kraven's Last Hunt" as his first film appearance. Since it wasn't his last.

I'm slightly wary of how Kraven's background will be recontextualised to fit into the Webb-verse but I do really want to see him in a Spider-Man movie. I hope they cast a bona fide badass.

I Marc Webb gave me a good Spider-Man flick with Scorpion and Shocker as the villains I would name my first born son after him.

Fuck yea Kraven the Hunter. He is definitely my favorite Spidey rogue. If not him, I would love for them to go in the opposite direction and do the Superior Foes. I always thought Martin Csokas (sp?) would be an awesome Kraven but I think he is in Amazing Spiderman 2 (havent seen it yet)

I've already said this before, but I feel the Kraven storyline is good enough for an entire film. You don't need secondary villains - maybe the Lizard, and have Kraven hunt him, too.

I say Gerard Butler for Kraven.

I know it will never happen, but I always thought that Daniel Day-Lewis would be the best person to play Kraven. He's a bit too old now, but about 10 years ago he would have been great.

The way that Daniel Day Lewis doesn't break character during filming I think they would be worried that he might actually start hunting Garfield

Hey I got a idea, how about a villian that isn't all about destroying the city/world for once. I know film makers are trying to show how bad a bad guy can be, but you don't have to have a villian who is always trying to destroy humanity. Which is why I want to see Kraven show up. He's not trying to destroy the city or needlessly hurting people or turn ther people into wild animals for him to hunt. Just him trying to prove himself and take down the spider. The same thing can be done with Venom,

Edgar Ramirez for Kraven

I'd love to see a stand-alone film with Spidey vs. Kraven vs. Chameleon, but I guess I'll have to wait for the eventual reboot (of the reboot). I didn't feel like ASM2 had much in the way of substance. Seemed like a mad rush to shoehorn in more villains to sell more toys. It's sad that, though not as successful as the previous films, ASM2 will still make enough money to perpetuate this kind of empty filmmaking. The concept of the Sinister Six is incredible for a feature film, but I don't

What about Mickey Rourke?

I love the character of Kraven, but I've always pictured him as a bit older, at least in his 50's. I think Mickey Rourke looking the way he did in Immortals, plus talking like Ivan Vanko could pull of the character nicely.

My guess is that the mysterious man working for Osborn at the end that he calls Mr Fierce is Kraven.

Nope, that guy is Gustav Fiers, it even says so in the credits. He's a minor character that originated in a series of Spider-Man novels where he was responsible for financing and helping to form one incarnation of the Sinister Six. Although, Kraven was one of the six villains references in the closing credits imagery.

Kraven is my favorite Spidey villain. However, they're gonna have to address Rhino & the end scene & probably have to at least toss in small a Venom genesis if they're planning on getting that off of the ground any time soon. I do want more development of the villains in part 3.

Don't really care who they use. Just make a good Spider-Man movie this time, Webb. If it all possible.

Felt like more time was spent on Peter figuring out how to do his laundry than on developing any of the villains in the last movie.

Oh my God... I can't wait!!! Cause you know - part 1 and 2 were just so great! I hope they stay strong with their casting too. Roseanne Barr would make a great Mary Jane!

Dude, their casting has been awesome. I had no problems with Tobey but Andrew Garfield is hands down better in the role in every conceivable way. Dane Dahaan is a great Harry and it's not like you can complain about Sally Field, Martin Sheen or Denis Leary. No, they're problem isn't the casting, it's that their writing sucks super big time, although that's not surprising when you hire the writers of Transformers 2.

Meh

Kraven never interested me. I'd be down for Vulture or Scorpion though.

I love this news as long as they don't ignore the showdown between Green Goblin and Spider-Man.

I would cast either Joe Manganiello or Josh Brolin for Kraven.

I think we got mega gipped on the showdown between Spidey and Green Goblin. I mean in the comics, the death of Gwen Stacey is showdown of all showdowns between them. Honestly, Ill be really surprised (though happily surprised, mind you) if Green Goblin is a major player in the next sequel.

I think Joe Manganiello would make for a good Kraven, but I think he could possibly make for a better Venom. And I could also see Jon Bernthal in either role too.
