Sony have a writer for a Kraven The Hunter movie…

August 25th, 2018 by Marc Comments

With all eyes looking to Venom in October, many are wondering if Sony have what it takes to pull off their own Marvel Cinematic universe of sorts, but no matter what people think, Sony are dreaming big.

It has been revealed that The Equalizer 2 writer Richard Wenk is working on a Kraven the Hunter movie to further expand the universe which will feature characters such as Venom, Morbius, Silk and many more.

Interestingly, it was reported last year that Sony planned on making movies based on Kraven and Mysterio…however Jake Gyllenhal is rumoured to be playing Mysterio in Spider-man: Far From Home.

But, Kraven in moving ahead.

Sergei Kravinoff AKA Kraven the Hunter is one of Spider-Man’s main rogues gallery and is half-brother of the Chameleon, however, Kraven is known for hunting big game, but Spider-Man has always, in the comics, been his Moby Dick, so to speak.

So what will he hunt in the Sony universe? Well, we do know that Spider-man is part of Sony’s plans for their universe, with their hopes being that they and Disney can work out a way where they both utilise Tom Holland’s Spidey, so maybe he will be Kraven’s big game… failing that, we could imagine it being Venom or another character.

Of course all this depends on how well Tom Holland’s Venom does at the boxoffice…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
