Reports are popping up left and right in regards to Sony‘s Kraven The Hunter film! It’s being said that Aaron Taylor-Johnson is going to portray the titular character in the villain’s solo film! So, a former Quicksilver actor is going to be Kraven The Hunter. The multiverse gets more complicated!
According to the current reports, J.C. Chandor is going to direct the villain’s origin film. They’re trying to expand Sony’s marvel universe, make their whole Spider-Man universe just a little bigger.
The studio has already been expanding that universe with some of its other films. Venom already exists in this weird void that has no Spider-Man. In fact, Venom has a sequel coming out not too long from now!
The Venom sequel will be introducing several other Marvel villains too! Carnage and Shriek will both be making their live-action debut in the Venom sequel. Still no Spider-Man though, apparently.
The report also claims that Kraven The Hunter will hit theaters on January 13, 2023. This isn’t that surprising, since the next two years will be full of films that have been delayed. We’ll be playing catch up for some time, because of the pandemic.
Art Marcum and Matt Holloway are expected to pen the film’s script with Richard Wenk as well. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach will both produce Kraven the Hunter.
Kraven The Hunter is a classic Spider-Man villain. He’s been around since the early comics, and it should be interesting to see what happens. Hopefully, Sony can make a film featuring him interesting.
Seeing Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Kraven will be somewhat bizarre though. As Marvel fans will know he portrayed Pietro Maximoff in Avengers: Age Of Ultron. A version of his character did appear in WandaVision, but it was not him who reprised the role.
Still, a former Quicksilver being a different Marvel villain is pretty awesome.
