'Spider-Man: Far From Home' Director Talks Ideas For Next Villain & Deflects Questions About Norman Osborn

Jon Watts is two for two with his ‘Spider-Man’ films. The young director, who’s previously best-known work was the indie thriller “Cop Car,” has proven over the course of two superhero films (‘Homecoming‘ and ‘Far From Home‘) that he’s the real deal. So, if the director has an idea for the villain of the next ‘Spider-Man’ film, everyone really should just get out of his way.

And after the successful introductions of Vulture and Mysterio into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it would seem as if Watts has his eye set on another Spidey villain that has yet to make the leap to the big screen.

In a recent interview, we asked Watts about which villain he’d like to tackle next if he’s signed for yet another “Spider-Man” film. And there’s definitely one that springs to mind.

“I mean, Kraven’s pretty great and coming up with a take on Kraven would be a fun challenge, but you know, to me it’s all about trying to show people things that they haven’t seen before, so I would dig back in and started reading the comics from issue #1 again,” said the director.

For those not familiar, Kraven is a Spider-Man foe that rose to prominence in the Marvel Universe as an exotic game hunter and decides that his greatest hunt would be to find and kill Spider-Man. The character is also probably best known for his incredibly campy costume, which includes a lot of fur and animal skins.

Now, one character that Watts has yet to name as a possible villain, or even a character that he’d like to tackle, is Norman Osborn. Before “Spider-man: Far From Home” was released, it was rumored that Osborn (who turns into Green Goblin) would be teased in the film, setting up a possible story in the third film, or perhaps allowing for Osborn to be the big bad for the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe in Phase 4. But alas, if you’ve seen the film, you know that no teases are included.

When the idea of bringing in Norman Osborn, and his son Harry, into the MCU was brought up in a new interview with UPROXX, Watts replied, “Well, there are a lot of Spider-Man stories to tell and it’s just finding out the right time to tell them.”

Hmmm, doesn’t sound like we’re going to get Oscorp or the Goblin anytime soon, does it?

Honestly, after two seemingly hit films in a row, why would you want to break away from what’s working? If Jon Watts continues on with the third film (and surely, Sony has to be backing up a dump truck full of cash on his doorstep as I write this), then the studio should definitely let the director and Marvel Studios continue however they want. If there’s no room for the Osborns in this version of the character, then so be it. We’ve seen that story already…multiple times. And as “Amazing Spider-Man 2” showed us, if it’s done poorly, there’s no recovering.

So, bring on Kraven! But please tell me how you plan on adapting “Kraven’s Last Hunt” because surely the character’s best story (and arguably one of Spider-Man’s greatest tales) is too dark for this universe. But we shall see.

“Spider-Man: Far From Home” is in theaters now.
