Kraven the Hunter & Karate Kid Reboot Release Dates Delayed by Sony

Fans will have to wait a bit longer for the Kraven the Hunter and Karate Kid release dates.

When will Kraven the Hunter & Karate Kid come out?

Sony announced that both films have been delayed. Karate Kid will now be released in 2025 rather than later this year. It was pushed back from December 13, 2024, to May 30, 2025. Kraven the Hunter will take its previous spot of December 13, which sees the supervillain movie delayed from August 30, 2024.

Kraven the Hunter has been delayed several times. Originally, the film was going to be released on January 13, 2023. It was then set to be released on October 6, 2023, before being pushed to August 2024, and will now finally be released in December 2024. That’s nearly two years of delays.

Kraven the Hunter will feature Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Avengers: Age of Ultron) as he takes on the mantle of the titular Spider-Man villain, a Russian immigrant named Sergei Kravinoff. In the film, which is being billed as the next chapter of Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, he goes on a mission to prove that he is the greatest hunter in the world.

Joining Taylor-Johnson in Sony’s R-rated Marvel movie is Fred Hechinger (Fear Street Trilogy, The White Lotus) as Chameleon, Kraven’s half-brother; Oscar nominee Ariana DeBose (West Side Story) as Calypso, the occasion partner and lover of Kraven; Russell Crowe and Levi Miller in undisclosed roles. Christopher Abbott and Alessandro Nivola have also been tapped as the main villains.

Kraven the Hunter is directed by Oscar nominee J.C. Chandor (A Most Violent Year) from a screenplay co-written by Richard Wenk (The Equalizer films), Matt Holloway, and Art Marcum. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing the project.
