Kraven the Hunter

Kraven, also known as Kraven the Hunter, was shown in the latest Gameplay Reveal, at the start of the trailer. Following the beloved comic arc Kraven's Last Hunt, Kraven comes to New York in search of his fiercest opponent, wishing to prove himself by defeating Spider-Man. He'll likely be one of the main villains in Spider-Man 2, but not as over-arching as Venom.
