Didn't see a thread on this, but yeah. Bunch of sites are talking about how the movie has been greenlit by Sony, and will release in January 2023. Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver in Age of Ultron) is playing the lead role, and a guy called J.C. Chandor is directing.

**** all details atm, but yeah.

This is just as bad as Topher Grace as Venom.

Kraven quite literally hunts and kills animals. For sport.

And when he gets bored or too high on his supernatural roots and potions, he does the same with people.

Giving him a solo film is an idea that can go wrong in so many ways.

Aaron is too young for the role, btw.

I'm sure he'll be a misunderstood bastard with a tragic backstory that eventually becomes an anti-hero by the end of the movie.

Mommy didn't hug me enough or too much, so I hunt people for sport.

Anyone who thinks Aaron Taylor Johnson can't play that role clearly hasn't watched Outlaw King.

They can't legally put Spider Man in these movies still, right? So who the hell is he going to hunt that we should care about?

Could clearly see Kraven's silhouette among the villains breaching the Multiverse barrier in NWH.

Russian supervillain-bully that is literally all about animal abuse and domestic violence... what could possibly go wrong? laughing out loud

Films about villains might be a fresh idea that this genre needs --- but I don't think Sony is up to the task.

this will be dogshit so i will pass

Not sure what the **** that they're trying to do with this movie, Giving Kraven his own bad guy among other bs.

Tzeentch
He'll start off being a villain who hunts lots of different people for sport but by the end he'll be a anti-hero who only hunts rich white CEOs.

^ At least the Joker was a story about an actual bad guy.

But making villains into anti-heroes is irritating.

StiltmanFTW
Spider-Man TAS did a great job turning Kraven into a likeable character, actually.

But they've reworked his origins and motives a lot and what worked there, might not work as well in the live action solo film.

It can be, yeah. Not every character can be The Grinch.

Yes I remember. Still not interested.

Morbius and Venom are fine, as they have been both villains and anti-heroes from their concept.

He only eats the bad people doh stick out tongue

They're going to make Venom a villain for SM, imo, as we saw a small gob of the black stuff left in the MCU after No Way Home. Wondering how they're going to handle the Tom Hardy situation though.

Cast him as an alternate version of himself that is a total dick face, recast Brock all together or something else.

Robtard
As for this film, main reason I'm looking forward to it is Aaron Taylor Johnson being cast.

He should be able to do a great job regardless if he's a villain, anti-hero or villain turned anti-hero, as long as the writing/directing doesn't suck.

Kraven will be a animal lover for this movie

eek! laughing

StiltmanFTW
That's a huge change.

But it is a change for the better.

Still, one needs to wonder, why make a movie about Kraven at all, then? And not Ka-Zar or some other guy that actually matches the description?

Ah, yes. Because Sony owns Spidey rights and Spidey rights only... and intends to milk them till they have nothing left.

But even limited to just Spider-characters, they could have picked someone else for that role - like Puma.

Every Sony movie outside of the Spider-Man ones has been complete shit so far..

That meme never gets old.

It is a change for the better, when you consider how Hollywood simply wouldn't get away with releasing a film worldwide about some mentally ill Russian, whose whole history is about pointless hunting, animal abuse, substance abuse and sick domestic violence.

But as I said... that changed character, that's not Kraven.

Tzeentch
It's a "villains can't ever be allowed to be the protagonist so we're going to white-wash the character into an anti-hero so we can have our cake and also eat it" episode.

Good to know I can skip out on this.

Yeah, that's going to be a hard sell. Kraven the Not Hunter. Too bad, they had a solid start with casting Aaron Taylor Johnson.

I kinda like the Venom movies, i know that they're not the greatest films around


Morbius i still haven't seen, But from what i hear. Ooof. Should've been a good film but as usual they found a way to **** it up.

Still haven't seen the sequel.

Venom 1 was enjoyable, I can agree on that.

What makes Venom film special for me is that it was the last movie shown in theaters while Stan Lee was still alive --- he died a month and a week later.

Morbius has become a meme of sorts, yeah.

Haven't seen it either.

Hey, they could work with that, if they used Wolverine's idea of "hunting":

https://i.ibb.co/XSXBs29/RCO010-1468803635.jpg

But again --- Wolverine, while definitely not a saint and constantly facing his demons and sins of the past, is a hero (or an anti-hero, at least).

Kraven is a villain with severe mental health problems... and he's only interested in making it worse for himself and all those around him, including his family.

If Sony decides to transform the character completely to make him a likeable protagonist, it'll no longer be Kraven.

Robtard
Pretty sure Logan f**ks those animals...

They're going to make Kraven an anti-hero like Venom, cept Venom did it first in the comics. I'll still wait for a preview to judge, but it's not looking good as is.

StiltmanFTW
laughing out loud

Venom had the whole Lethal Protector thing, yes.

Kraven does have his own code of honor, but the best thing he's ever done was committing suicide.

If Sony really wants to make a movie about "an animal lover and protector of the natural world", they really shouldn't have picked this villain who happens to be the very antithesis of that.

Even limited to "Spideyverse" villains, Puma comes to mind before Kraven.

Sony is not planning it smart, they just know they need to keep making new films or they'll lose the rights, afaik.
