Joe Manganiello played the original Flash Thompson in the first Sam Raimi Spider-Man movie and wants to make a return as Kraven.
Joe mentioned his desire to play Spidey villain Kraven The Hunter while speaking with the LightsCameraBarstool podcast calling it a dream role.
MANGANIELLO: “What Kraven? You kidding, that would be like a dream role.”

Sony Pictures is currently developing a solo Kraven The Hunter movie.
There has also been a desire by directors Jon Watts and Ryan Coogler to use Kraven in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s unclear when we’ll see the character first.
Joe hasn’t had the best luck with comic book roles, as he was originally cast as Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke in Justice League with some expectation he’d carry over to Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie only for the character/movie seemingly given the ax.
