Spider-Man: Far From Home finally brought one of Peter Parker's oldest villains to the big-screen: Mysterio. Although it doesn't seem likely that he's going to make his return anytime soon, the film actually may have teased another one of Spider-Man's most popular villains as making an appearance at some point in the future: Kraven the Hunter.
Created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, 1964's The Amazing Spider-Man #15 saw the first appearance of Sergei Nikolaevich Kravinoff/Kraven the Hunter. Far From Home introduced a character named Dmitri, who shares a name with Spider-Man's very first supervillain: Dmitri Smerdyakov/The Chameleon. Using elaborate make-up and costumes to change his appearance, The Chameleon has been a member of various supervillain teams dedicated to taking down Peter Parker. Director Jon Watts refused to deny if this character was the Chameleon, though he didn't say he wasn't. This links up to Kraven, as Smerdyakov is the character's half-brother, with the two sharing the same father.

At this time it remains to be seen if Kraven will actually play a role in a future film. However, it seems possible the villain will make his way to the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point in the future. There were, at some point, talks of a film based on Kraven the Hunter from Sony Pictures, though little has materialized about that movie in recent months. Still, his film would have been based on the "Kraven's Last Hunt" storyline, and the script initially featured Spider-Man.
