While there are plenty of established villains still kicking around from Spider-Man: Far From Home, it sounds like Donald Glover’s Aaron Davis (who becomes The Prowler) was considered for a role in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers revealed this to TheHollywoodReporter in their recent interview.
THR: Donald Glover was a fan favorite in Homecoming. Was there talk of bringing him back for a scene?
MCKENNA: “We definitely considered that. We definitely thought, “How great it would be to bring back Aaron Davis again.” Other considerations come in. We went down that road a little bit, then the movie really spent such little time in Queens and gets to Europe pretty quickly. Some ideas you just have to give up.”
SOMMERS: “That’s really what it came down to. We loved that character and we wanted to do it, but we just wanted to get out of New York and get on the trip as soon as possible. There were several things we would have loved to do in New York before he left, but we just didn’t have time.”
Considering that Glover is getting some heat at Disney via Solo: A Star Wars Story and the upcoming Lion King remake, it would make sense that Marvel Studios would want to use him again eventually for one of the Spider-Man sequels.
Given that the Prowler was one of the big standouts in Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and would meet the criteria of Jon Watts, who wants to tackle villains we haven’t seen before and Davis does already exist in the MCU. He’d also make a diverse addition to the Sinister Six if they ever get around to tackle them.
You never know, maybe we’ll get The Prowler alongside Kraven The Hunter in Spider-Man 3.
