As Phase 4 will be busier than anything attempted so far, Marvel is now producing an increasing number of movies and TV series that will feature brand new superheroes and villains.

Aside from that, there’s a renewed partnership with Sony that will help Marvel tell a story unlike anything ever made when it comes to Spider-Man films.


Although it came as a surprise because the Aaron-Taylor Johnson who played an actual member of the Avengers team, and we’ve been dying to see him back in the MCU again, however, the actor is coming back to MCU as an entirely different character – a villain.


Taylor was chosen by Sony to play Kraven the Hunter. As you can recall, he already played Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver in the Avengers: Age of Ultron. Unfortunately, he had one of the shortest on-screen Avengers careers because Pietro was killed during a battle with Ultron.


Both Marvel and Sony have yet to unveil whether Kraven will appear in the upcoming Spider-Man 3, and it would make sense that this specific character would be involved with the hunting down Peter Parker (Tom Holland) now that the world thinks Spider-Man is a criminal.

‘Kraven The Hunter’ movie will be directed by J.C. Chandor and is scheduled to debut on 13th January 2023, joining Sony’s increasing collection of movies from the Spider-Man universe.
