Spider-Man is set to make an appearance in the Kraven the Hunter spin-off movie.
In was announced last year that the Marvel villain would be getting his own film, and now its writer Richard Wenk has confirmed that it will include a direct encounter with Spider-Man.
“I’m just starting it. It’s an interesting world. A great character,” Wenk told Discussing Film (per Comicbook). “It’s going to adhere very closely to the lore of Kraven the Hunter. And he is going to come face-to-face with Spider-Man.
“I’m just beginning it, beginning the process, and because it’s a big IP, Marvel world, there’s lots of hurdles to overcome before you can start writing, to crack the right story and to get the right tone. It’s a new world for me.
Wenk further explained that Kraven the Hunter is “very grounded character”. He likes that he doesn’t have a lot of “crazy superpowers” and that fits in with the type of film he wants to make.
He also revealed that the spin-off will draw influence from the Kraven’s Last Hunt storyline.
“You have to look at everything just to soak it in,” the writer noted. “I think that what we’re all circling is ‘Kraven’s Last Hunt’ and whether this is the precursor to that movie or will include it. We’re talking about those things. And even the idea that maybe Kraven could be like Kill Bill where we’re basically writing two movies.”
Sony’s next villain spin-off will be Morbius, starring Jared Leto. It’s unclear if Spider-Man will feature in that film too, but if Venom is anything to go by, it seems the web-swinger won’t necessarily be required in every movie.
