UPDATE: Another Spider-Man 2 poster has just been released, this time featuring Symbiote Spider-Man!
Original story follows.
Earlier this year, a PlayStation Showcase event wrapped up by finally pulling the curtain back on Spider-Man 2. The footage kicked off with a sequence which wouldn't look out of place in a Turok reboot, but we'd soon learn the mystery character was Kraven the Hunter.
He's heading to New York City for his biggest hunt yet, targeting both Spider-Men and the many foes they've faced (such as The Lizard). Venom will also be front and centre, though we're anticipating Kraven being just as big an antagonist as whoever is wearing the symbiote.
A new character poster for Spider-Man 2 has been released today and, on that, we get a new look at Kraven as he embarks on this hunt to "obtain exactly what he desires." What that is remains to be seen.
When Kraven’s hunters arrive in the city, it sets off a mystery of why they are there and who, and what, they are hunting. But as the Spider-Men and MJ dig deeper into Kraven’s motivations, it's said Peter Parker's new symbiote will threaten both New York and everyone and everything they hold dear.
Check out this new poster for Spider-Man 2 below.
Kraven the Hunter first appeared in 1964's Amazing Spider-Man #15. He has since become one of the web-slinger's most formidable foes, becoming a founding member of the Sinister Six and occasionally even coming into conflict with other heroes, such as Black Panther and Tigra. He is the half-brother of the Chameleon.
The character has been front and centre in a number of Spider-Man adaptations over the years including animated series and video games. However, it will be Aaron Taylor-Johnson who brings the character to live-action as part of Sony's Spider-Man Universe in 2024's Kraven the Hunter movie.
"Spider-Men, Peter Parker and Miles Morales, return for an exciting new adventure," reads the synopsis, "in the critically acclaimed Marvel’s Spider-Man franchise."
"Swing, jump and utilise the new Web Wings to travel across Marvel’s New York, quickly switching between Peter Parker and Miles Morales to experience different stories and epic new powers, as the iconic villain Venom threatens to destroy their lives, their city and the ones they love."
Spider-Man 2 swings into stores on October 20.
