Jimmy Kimmel is hoping that one day, in Hell or on the High Seas, he can play Kraven the Hunter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or in Sony’s Marvel Character Universe. Although this role has already been technically assigned to Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kimmel has long joked about disguising himself as Spider-Man’s iconic villain. Now that the second trailer for Spider-Man: No Path Home was freed, Kimmel and his team managed to get the comedian-turned-host into the trailer, Kraven’s full costume, and all.
You can check it out at the very end of Kimmel’s Wednesday Monologue below.
As part of Sony’s growing SUMC, Taylor-John’s Kraven the hunter The solo film is currently slated for a January 2023 release. At one point, the film’s first writer, Richard Wenk (The Equalizer) suggested that Spider-Man himself would be a part of it. Naturally, it’s not clear if that means Tom Holland’s version of Peter Parker would be in the movie, or if Sony would launch a new Spidey for SUMC.
“Just started. It’s an interesting world. A great character,” Wenk told DiscussingFilm. “It’s going to adhere very closely to the lore of Kraven the Hunter. And he’s going to come face to face with Spider-Man. I’m just starting it, I’m starting the process, and because it’s a great intellectual property. , the Marvel world, there are a lot of hurdles to overcome before you can start writing, find the right story, and get the right tone. It’s a new world for me. But the good thing is that ‘is that he’s a very grounded character, he doesn’t have a whole lot of crazy superpowers and things like that, so he’s more grounded and that’s what I like to do. what I know. “
Apart from that, Sony Pictures boss Sanford Panitch admitted earlier this year that he must have done some research after finding out Taylor-Johnson was cast.
“It was something like ‘I had to look for it’,” Panitch told Variety. “I didn’t have a lot of familiarity. And then we start watching these amazing dailies. [from ‘Bullet Train’], and you really see the full-fledged action star. He’s charming and he’s funny and he stands up to Brad Pitt. A lot of people can’t do that. “
