Kraven the Hunter, the upcoming Spider-Man spin-off from Sony and Marvel, will hit the theatres on August 30, 2024. The film was earlier scheduled to hit the screens on October 6, and the release date has been pushed forward due to the ongoing Writers’ and SAG-AFTRA strikes. 

Though most plot details about the film are unknown for now, we know that the feature will focus on the titular villain, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Prior to the film, Taylor-Johnson made his Marvel debut in the MCU as Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron and, briefly, in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Kraven is a formidable villain who first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #15 in the 1960s. He’s known for holding a variety of abilities, all of which enhance his physical abilities to superhuman levels.

Along with Taylor-Johnson, the film stars West Side Story’s Ariana DeBose as Voodoo Priestess Calypso, Fred Hechinger as Kraven’s half-brother Dmitri Smerdyakov (a.k.a. Chameleon), and Christopher Abbott reportedly playing primary antagonist the Foreigner. Alessandro Nivola, Levi Miller, and Russell Crowe will also star in currently unknown roles.
