After an almost year-long delay in its theatrical release date it is scheduled to have, Marvel's Kraven The Hunter film starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, will just have to wait until next year's summer season to tell its story.
With the official trailer having already been released, fans can make a good guess as to what adventures we will follow the titular anti-hero journeying toward in his solo-outing - but in a recent interview with Esquire Magazine, director J.C. Chandor revealed the actual type of story Kraven The Hunter will tell.
“When the final credits roll on this film…you won’t have the feeling this is all going to end great,” says J.C. Chandor.
The trailers indicated a lot of hardship Kraven deals with for a good portion of his life in the film - including the death of his mother, and the conflict he will have between his father and his profession of "putting evil in the world", which leads us to believe this film will follow a painful family drama story among the Kravinoff family.
Additionally, Johnson hints at the journey Kraven is set to venture on to be even more "bitter" to the very end:
We know Kraven The Hunter is set before the planned encounter that is between Kraven and Spider-Man, and if this film is just the start, who knows what more is left in store for the hunter?
Kraven The Hunter releases in theaters on August 30, 2024.
Russian immigrant Sergei Kravinoff sets out on a mission to prove himself as the greatest hunter in the world.
Kraven the Hunter is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, produced by Columbia Pictures in association with Marvel Entertainment. Distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing, it is intended to be the sixth film in Sony's Spider-Man Universe (SSU). The film was directed by J. C. Chandor and written by Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, and Richard Wenk. It stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the title role alongside Ariana DeBose, Russell Crowe, Fred Hechinger, Christopher Abbott and Alessandro Nivola.
