Kraven Set Photos Reveal Best Look Yet at Aaron Taylor-Johnson in Spider-Man Spinoff

Posted 2022/04/24 7 0


Kraven the Hunter is set to be the next film in Sony’s Spider-Man universe and is currently in production in the UK. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who is no stranger to comic-book movies, having previously starred in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Kick-Ass, will be playing the titular Spider-Man villain in Kraven the Hunter. Although Sony has yet to provide an official first look at Johnson suited up as Kraven, it seems like the makers are aiming for a more stylish look for the character. Several photos from Kraven the Hunter’s set in London made their way online recently, courtesy of Just Jared, and show Johnson filming an intense action sequence. You can check out the pictures below.

Unfortunately, Johnson wasn’t donning the classic lion fur vest Kraven is known for in the comics. Though he did sport long hair, a beard, an animal fang necklace, and was running (or maybe hunting) barefoot like his comic book counterpart. Johnson’s look is in line with previously leaked set videos from Kraven the Hunter that showed a stunt double leaping on cars. Hopefully, we’ll see Johnson in a comic-accurate costume in the film.

Kraven is one of Spider-Man’s most famous villains, who has occasionally served as an anti-hero as well. Born Sergei Kravinoff into a Russian aristocratic family, Kraven is a big game hunter who gains enhanced strength, speed, senses, and an extended lifespan after meeting the voodoo priestess Calypso. He is also one of the core members of the Sinister Six, which Sony seems to be setting up with solo movies of Venom, Morbius, and now Kraven.

J.C. Chandor (Triple Frontier, A Most Violent Year) is directing Kraven the Hunter from a screenplay by Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (Iron Man, Uncharted), and Richard Wenk (The Equalizer). The film also stars Christopher Abbott as the main antagonist, rumored to be The Foreigner, Fred Hechinger as The Chamelion, Ariana Debose as Calypso, and Russell Crowe as Kraven’s father, with Alessandro Nivola and Levi Miller in undisclosed roles.

Kraven the Hunter will hit the screens on January 13, 2023.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Is Excited To Star In Kraven the Hunter

Aaron Taylor-Johnson quickly became a fan-favorite playing Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron. One of the most powerful characters and the Marvel equivalent of The Flash, Quicksilver was unceremoniously killed off in Age of Ultron, much to the dismay of fans.

But Johnson wasn’t done playing comic book characters. He is one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood right now and was even a contender for the title role in Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Ultimately, he joined Kraven the Hunter and plans to deliver a committed performance. Johnson recently talked to Hero Magazine about his physical transformation and his interpretation of the character.

“You just hope that you’re going to portray something that you can bring to life. There is, again, room for an interpretation and you want to be able to bring something and let it pop off the page. It’s another new challenge, we talk about putting yourself under pressure all the time. I don’t step away from controversial sh-t, I don’t know what it is, but I’m always drawn to the thing that might actually give me a f-ck-ng stroke!”

Hopefully, the film will fare better than Jared Leto’s widely panned Morbius. A case could be made that Sony’s second attempt to kickstart a Spider-Man universe is dependent on Kraven the Hunter’s success.
