The Illuminerdi reported that Keanu has been offered the role but that there “is no final decision from either party yet.”
Kraven is a villain with aims to kill Spiderman to prove himself as the world’s greatest hunter, but maintains a code of honour and justice, treating his adversaries as equals.
Fans have taken to Twitter to discuss the possible Keanu Reeves casting, and who they think should play the role of Kraven in the upcoming Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters (SUMC) film.

As always, people quickly took to Twitter after hearing the news of a potential Keanu Reeves casting, and shared their own views on the matter.
Many people seemed content with the casting, but others suggested other actors who they felt would be perfect for the role.
Jimmy Kimmel even joined in the conversation, replying to a tweet claiming that Keanu had been offered the role with: “Not true, not true and not true.”
He then threw himself into the mix, editing his face onto Kraven’s body, much to the amusement of his fans.
Other Twitter users suggested actors such as Luke Evans, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Javier Bardem.
