Kraven the Hunter is a fearsome tracker who as soon as killed Spider-Guy. Who would you solid in that position? Jeffrey Dean Morgan? Manu Bennett? Joe Manganiello? Idris Elba (he is excellent in the whole thing)? Sony and Wonder have settled on comic and late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, if the comic’s personal tweet is to be believed.
We’ve got reached out to Sony at once for affirmation of this casting, however have now not but heard again as of the time of this writing. In point of fact, this may well be an elaborate ruse via Kimmel to slyly introduced Matt Damon will play the position, for all we all know. In any case, the duo have had a protracted and really humorous historical past of pranking each and every different.
At the one hand, on the lookout for “Jimmy Kimmel prank” turns up 632,000 effects on Google. At the different, Wonder has toyed with bizarre casting earlier than. Paul Rudd wasn’t an instantly glaring selection for a superhero, however has became Ant-Guy right into a family title. We raised an eyebrow when Wonder solid comic Kumail Nanjiani within the upcoming Eternals movie along Salma Hayek and Angelina Jolie, after which he were given so ripped that the collective web paused for a minute to take understand, proving that he can a minimum of glance the phase.
Kimmel is 52 years previous and has a day-to-day past due display on ABC–it’s tricky to believe him getting in a similar way have compatibility and ditching his profitable gig. To not point out that the Kraven within the comics nearly by no means places on a blouse. With that mentioned, Kimmel isn’t any stranger to the use of visitor hosts when he steps clear of his display.
Then there may be the weirdness of the impending, untitled Spider-Guy film to keep in mind. JK Simmons, who performed J. Jonah Jameson within the first Spider-Guy trilogy is again as JJ within the movie, and Jamie Foxx is reprising his position as Electro from the critically-panned Superb Spider-Guy 2. Physician Bizarre (Benedict Cumberbatch) is stepping up as Spider-Guy’s mentor for this 3rd movie, and his personal sequel is named Physician Bizarre within the Multiverse of Insanity, whilst Sony’s maximum critically-successful Spider-Guy film is named Spider-Guy: Into the Spider-Verse.
This can be a bizarre casting risk to make certain, however the Spider-Verse is lovely bizarre, too, making the casting a ways from unattainable. If true, this is the following query: Will he additionally play Kraven within the standalone Kraven the Hunter movie?
