Activision this morning revealed that Marvel's Kraven the Hunter has joined the cast of villains in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The Russian strongman will apparently play a critical role in the game as one of Peter Parker's nemeses.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 screens:
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is scheduled for a release sometime this spring for just about every platform imaginable.
This in-game footage gives center stage to story with a revealing look into the world of this super hero sequel, as well as an ominous introduction to one of its central characters: Kraven the Hunter (aka Sergei Kravinoff). Marvel’s infamous Russian strongman – equal parts charismatic and dangerous – will play a critical role throughout the game’s narrative, challenging Spider-Man’s code of justice as he traverses the criminal underworld. It also highlights the man beneath the mask, Peter Parker, who will play an important part of his own in the journey to come.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Evil never sleeps. Embrace your power and protect your playground.
What started out as the search for a killer very quickly becomes something so much more. In a unique story set alongside the events of the second film, Spider-Man discovers he's not the only one tracking down Manhattan's criminals. The underworld has been turned upside down with a one-man campaign of violence and murder that has captured the city in an iron grip of fear. Villains from the film as well as fan-favorite, classic Marvel characters are woven together in a twisted web of adrenaline-fueled, free-roaming, web-slinging action that puts players on a collision course with an evil far beyond Spider-Man's reckoning.
