Premiere: October 6, 2023
After being in development for years, Sony moved forward with Kraven the Hunter in August of 2020 when director J.C. Chandor came on to the project with Richard Wenk writing.
In what was seen as an unexpected move, Aaron Taylor-Johnson was cast as Sergei Kravinoff / Kraven himself in late May 2021. This will mark Taylor-Johnson‘s return to comic book adaptations after a short stint as Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron and as Dave Lizewski in the Kick-Ass duology.
Early 2022 saw a couple of names being added to the cast, with Russell Crowe being the clear stand-out. The Academy Award winner will play an, as of yet, undisclosed role. A few weeks afterward it was Ariana DeBose who joined the project as voodoo priestess Calypso, alongside Alessandro Nivola who will play the movie’s main villain. This character’s name hasn’t been announced at this point.
Four months ahead of its January 2023 release date Sony decided to push the project back a further ten months, with the premiere now set for October of the same year.
