Kraven the Hunter Release Date Delayed for Spider-Man Villain Movie

It has been announced that the Spider-Man villain movie Kraven the Hunter has been delayed beyond its October 6, 2023 release date.

When has Kraven the Hunter’s release date been delayed to?

The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Kraven the Hunter’s release date has been pushed back from this October to August 30, 2024 — a substantial 10-month delay for the Sony antihero film. This is just one of Sony’s movies to have its date shifted as a result of the ongoing writers and actors strike.

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.
