Spider-Man, arguably, has some of the best villains in comic book lore; from the Green Goblin to Mysterio, each villain offers a unique challenge for the web-slinger — and while we’ve seen many great foes in the Spider-Man movies already, there are still plenty more who have remained untouched and ripe for the picking.
In an interview with MTV, the 20-year-old actor talked about his work on his upcoming Spidey film and, amidst the conversation, addressed which Spider-Man baddie he’d like to see next in live-action. Well, Holland made his choice pretty clear.
“You know what? Kraven is one of my favorites for a cameo,” Holland said. “I always wanted Aquaman to play Kraven, but he’s now DC. I thought that would be super cool.”
Holland is obviously referring to actor Jason Momoa. Though known for his time on “Game of Thrones,” he’s captured audience’s attention lately by taking on the mantle of Aquaman in DC Comics’ upcoming “Justice League” film adaptation.
While the sizeably-intimidating Momoa might pull off the lion-vest wearing Kraven the Hunter rather well, the odds of him joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe are next to none these days, especially when you consider that, after Justice League, the actor is signed on to star in “Aquaman” and appear in its possible sequels.
Granted, other actors like Ryan Reynolds have made the jump from studio to studio — having gone from Green Lantern to Deadpool — but the switch has always proven difficult to manage. Until then, we’re left to dream about what a Jason Momoa Kraven the Hunter would look like standing off against Tom Holland’s Spider-Man…
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” follows the events of “Captain America: Civil War.” The film, described as “a coming-of-age story,” finds Peter attending his high school for gifted kids, trying to impress his new benefactor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and also dealing with a pesky arch enemy, the Vulture (Michael Keaton).
Directed by Jon Watts (“Clown”), written by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein (“Vacation”) and starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr., Zendaya, Donald Glover and many, many others, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.
