Spider-Man has faced the likes of the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus and Venom on the big screen, but Sony Pictures hopes to see two other villains in films of there own.
In its profile of new studio CEO Tom Rothman, The Hollywood Reporter reveals Sony plans to follow its announced Venom and Silver & Black spinoffs with projects centering on classic rogues Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio.
Created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Kraven debuted in 1964’s The Amazing Spider-Man #15. Known as a big game hunter, Kraven saw Spider-Man as his next target to prove he was the greatest hunter in the world. The character is best known from the 1987 storyline “Kraven’s Last Hunt.”
Also the work of Lee and Ditko, Mysterio was introduced in 1964’s The Amazing Spider-Man #13. Quentin Beck was a Hollywood special effects master who grew tired of trying to make a living as an actor and turned to a life of crime instead. He uses his skills in illusions and special effects to stay one step ahead of Spider-Man.
