Craven the Huntsman should have been in Sam Raimi's \"Spider-Man 4\"

Craven the Huntsman should have been in Sam Raimi's \

Every director has a movie he conceived but never brought to life, and Sam Raimi (\"Evil Dead,\" \"Spider-Man\") is no exception.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Raimi revealed that his version of \"Spider-Man 4\" with Tobey Maguire would have featured none other than Craven the Huntsman on the big screen.
Sure, next year the Spider-Man villain will finally hit the screens with Aaron Taylor-Johnson (\"Kick-Ass\") in the role, but it's hard to imagine what the horror-oriented director could have brought to his version.In addition to discussing his new film, \"Doctor Strange: In a Cartoon Network of Madness,\" Raimi also briefly touched on his vision for \"Spider-Man 4.\" Concept art by writer and illustrator Jeffrey Henderson previously revealed that versions of Vulture and Mysterio were also to appear.
Raimi wanted the role of the Vulture played by none other than John Malkovich, and Bruce Campbell, supposedly a frequent collaborator, played the cameo role of Mysterio.
If not for that, it looks like the film could have been a very crowded one, because Craven was supposed to appear in it.Here's what Raimi said about Craven's appearance in Spider-Man 4:We were going to use this character in the next Spider-Man; I always wanted to see Craven fight Spider-Man on the big screen.
I thought that would be really unique.
He's the greatest hunter, and Spider-Man is the most adroit rascal.
And I wanted to see Peter continue to evolve as a person.Next year Craven will finally get his right to life.
Taylor-Johnson will play the title role in the film directed by JC Chandor.
The character also nearly appeared in the recent Spider-Man: No Way Home before plans changed and Marvel struck deals with Willem Dafoe, Jamie Foxx and Alfred Molina to reprise their villainous roles.Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is released May 6, 2022.
