There is a whole wave of character information coming out from various set visits for Jon Watt’s Spider-Man: Far From Home and there are some new details about Numan Acar’s character Dmitri, who is a mercenary that is working for Nick Fury.
First, CinenaBlend asked if Dmitri is playing classic Spidey villain The Chameleon, a villain that can double for anyone using disguising technology and is the half-brother of Kraven The Hunter.
“Well, Dmitri in the film works for Nick Fury and I think anyone who works for Nick Fury, they certainly have a mysterious past. We’re not specifically saying that he’s [Chameleon]… but we’re not not saying.”
Producer Eric Carroll, who has been dishing about character details from the film gives some direct information what Dmitri’s task is for Nick Fury while speaking with the outlet on set. Revealing that Numan has a great sense of humor despite his intimidating look in the film.
“One of the guys on Nick’s team is played by Numan Acar. He’s a fantastic actor. And he’s got this really great thing where he looks superimposing. He looks like the sort of guy you’d expect to be a mercenary. But he’s hilarious. Just one of the funniest actors.”
“Now you’ve got this really scary-looking mercenary driving these kids around Europe. So, they get rerouted [by Fury]. They drive through the Alps, and there’s a fun character set piece here where Peter, who now has access to some technology in the wake of having met up with Nick Fury, tries to use that technology for iffy purposes and almost blows up his bus by launching some weaponized drones that this spy team has access to.”
Honestly, it could either way considering how vague Watts was with his answer there, but if they added The Chameleon to the MCU that would be one step closer to adding Kraven The Hunter as well. The Russo Brothers and Ryan Coogler have previously talked about the desire to use Kraven.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is set for release on July 2nd.
