Sony has released the first trailer for the upcoming film Kraven the Hunter starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson. It should be released on October 6, 2023. This is reported by Gizmodo.

The cast also includes Oscar winner Ariana DeBos, Fred Hechinger, Alessandro Nivola, Christopher Abbott and Russell Crowe. The film was directed by J.C. Chandor.

The movie will show the origin story of one of the most famous villains of the Marvel universe. But compared to other projects like Venom or Morbius, this one will have an R rating.

At the same time, Sony released the poster of the new film. It features Kraven in one of his most iconic costumes.

“Kraven the Hunter is a Marvel movie grounded heavily in the real world,” Taylor-Johnson said. “And anyone who is familiar with the comics and the character of Kraven, they know that he’s a fierce hunter with the skill of a highly trained killer.”

By the way, last fall Sony announced that is shooting a new movie The Karate Kid. It will be the new attempt at a reboot of the movie after the 2010 movie with Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan, The Karate Kid, and the first since Sony Pictures Television’s series Cobra Kai greatly increased the popularity of the franchise.
