Kraven the Hunter is a character which Sony keeps expressing interest in adapting to the big screen but director Jon Watts would love to pit Tom Holland’s Peter Parker against him as well. It is far too early to tell where Peter Parker will be at the end of his trilogy with where the infamous mid-credit scene from ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ left him. However, if his current problem isn’t resolved before the third movie, there is a solid way to introduce the villain.
As to Watts being interested in bringing the character to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he has stated:
“Oh, I would love Kraven. It’s just the trick of how do you do Kraven in a movie?”
He would go on to say why tackling original enemies of The Wallcrawler has been high on his list compared to revisiting fan-favorites such as Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus:
“I mean, yeah, I always just try to start with what haven’t we seen before? And there’s so many Spider-Man villains. I mean, the fact that I got to, in a way, bring Hydro-Man and Molten Man to a movie, really, I get a kick out of that, even if they are fake. But, no, I don’t know who’s next. I always like to think about it in terms of what’s going to be the most difficult thing for Peter. So that’s going to be the next trick.”
Now as to how Kraven could be introduced, we’ll have to go directly into the spoilers of that mid-credit scene:

While “Kraven’s Last Hunt” might not fit with the current arc, the idea that Peter Parker as Spider-Man is now on the run would be the perfect way to toss Kraven into the mix. Either Kraven wanting to get involved directly, as a government contractor, or J. Jonah Jameson hiring the esteemed hunter for extra press could all be reasons as to why he would head to New York and be hunting Parker.
