Jimmy Kimmel to play Kraven in the upcoming Spider-Man film?
The film is expected to go on floors this week in Queens, but the casting is still in progress
Jimmy Kimmel has said that he is going to play Kraven the Hunter in the upcoming Tom Holland-starring, yet-to-be-titled third instalment of Marvel's Spider-Man franchise. The television host and comedian tweeted, "Thrilled to announce I've been tapped to play Kraven the Hunter in Spider-Man 3."
However, given Kimmel's jokester personality and the randomness of the tweet, it's not clear if he is truly part of the friendly neighbourhood superhero's next adventure.
The film is expected to go on floors this week in Queens. Since the first schedule will not include major cast members, casting is still in progress.
Jamie Foxx is reportedly reprising his role as Electro from the 2014 film The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Benedict Cumberbatch is also said to be on board as Doctor Strange and will double up as the mentor figure for the web-slinger post the demise of Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame.
