Sony Casts Their Kraven

One of the more famous members of Spider-Man’s rogue’s gallery will be brought to the big screen in 2023. The Wrap reports that Aaron Taylor-Johnson will portray the title character in Kraven The Hunter. If that name sounds familiar, it may be because Taylor-Johnson portrayed Quicksilver in Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

LC Chandor (Triple Frontier) will direct the film with a screenplay from Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man), and Richard Wenk (The Equalizer). Marvel movie veterans Avi Arad, Amy Pascal, and Matt Tolmach will produce.

Sergei Kravinoff, aka Kraven, is one of Spider-Man’s oldest foes. He was created by Stan “The Man” Lee and Steve Ditko, the duo responsible for creating Spidey himself. He first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #15 published in 1964. Over time, he became part of the “The Sinister Six” with other Spidey villains. Rumors have run rampant for years that the current series of Spider-Man films are building to a clash with The Sinister Six on the big screen.
