The first trailer for Kraven the Hunter was released yesterday and, as expected, it's received something of a mixed response from comic book fans.
Like Venom and Morbius, all signs point to it being another Avi Arad-produced Marvel movie that takes major liberties with the source material, hence why Kraven appears to gain superpowers from magic lion blood. While this is clearly an origin story for Kraven, future plans for the
villain anti-hero are currently unclear.
We're assuming he'll eventually join Morbius and The Vulture's heroic Sinister Six, though Aaron Taylor-Johnson seems confident that he will one day get to share the screen with Spider-Man.
Sharing the trailer on Instagram, the actor captioned his post with, "Spider-Man...I'm coming for you."
It's still unclear whether actors who join Sony's Marvel Universe are aware they're not part of the MCU, though Taylor-Johnson previously played Avengers: Age of Ultron's Quicksilver. Will he ever actually get to share the screen with Spidey? We doubt it.
While Kraven would have been a perfect villain for Spider-Man 4 to hunt the web-slinger down, the Hunter being brought into the MCU doesn't seem remotely likely. As for the possibility of bringing Tom Holland's Spidey into this live-action Spider-Verse, there don't appear to be any plans for that to happen in the near future.
Directed by J. C. Chandor from a screenplay by Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, and Richard Wenk, Kraven the Hunter stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ariana DeBose, Fred Hechinger, Alessandro Nivola, Christopher Abbott, and Russell Crowe.
Kraven the Hunter is set to be released in theaters on October 6.
