Sony’s Kraven the Hunter movie pins down a director

September 24th, 2020 by Marc Comments

The Sony Marvel/Spider-man movie universe is set to get bigger again with a director found for the Kraven the Hunter movie.

While many believed that Kraven could end up being the villain in the third MCU Spider-man movie, that looks fairly unlikely at this stage as Sony have made it clear they plan on bringing him to the big screen on a solo adventure.

Sony has got behind A Most Violent Year and Triple Frontier’s JC Chandor to direct the Kraven movie.

The movie will also be written by The Equalizer’s Richard Wenk, and is reportedly still based on the Kraven’s Last Hunt story where the hunter decides Spider-man is the biggest game out there and sets out to put his head on his wall.

Going back two years (here), Wenk has said he was instructed to write Spider-man into the story and since we now know that Venom and Morbius are a part of the MCU, then there’s no reason why we can’t see Tom Holland’s Spider-man appear.

This joins the (rumoured) Spider-woman movie set to be directed by Olivia Wilde (here), both of which will join Venom, Mobius and Venom: Let There Be Blood as being connected to the MCU if not necessarily a part of the core story. In other words they happen in the MCU, just off to the side.

So what say you all? Would you be up for a Kraven movie? Let me know…

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….
