We get a peak at the latest in the long line of superhero films with the release of Kraven the Hunter trailer which had leaked online recently and Sony now opted to officially release the first trailer based on the iconic Spider-Man Villain.
The movie sees Aaron Taylor-Johnson take on the key role of Kraven, joined by an impressive cast including Russell Crowe as his father, Fred Hechinger as his brother, Ariana DeBose as his love interest, Levi Miller as a younger version of Kraven, and both Christopher Abbott and Alessandro Nivola as the film’s villains.
From what we’ve seen in the trailer this is pretty brutal stuff and is Sony’s first R-rated Marvel film that sees Taylor-Johnson as a Russian immigrant named Sergei Kravinoff who goes on a mission to prove that he is the greatest hunter in the world. The trailer suggests Kraven obtains superhuman strength and reflexes following his being attacked by a lion as a child.
The film was reportedly shot entirely on location in the UK and Iceland, and is directed by Oscar nominee J.C. Chandor (“A Most Violent Year”) from a screenplay co-written by Richard Wenk (“The Equalizer”), Matt Holloway, and Art Marcum. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing. Aaron Taylor-Johnson is a name doing the rounds at the moment as a contender to play James Bond so this trailergives a peak at his action skills.
Originally slated for January next year, the film is now set to open October 5th. It arrives as “Marvel’s Spider-Man 2” game hits stores the same month which also features Kraven as one of the main characters.
