New Spider-Man villain in the cinema
Thus, the Kraven the Hunter movie will serve to introduce a new classic Spider-Man villain in the cinema, in this case, surely as Kraven’s antagonist, in a similar way to Carnage in the Venom sequel. Be that as it may, Fred Hechinger will be in charge of giving life to Dimitri Smerdyakov, alias Chameleon, a master of disguise capable of impersonating the most varied Marvel characters and with superhuman strength. Also, in the comics he is discovered as a stepbrother of Kraven himself.
Fred Hechinger has recently gained some popularity for the Disney+ series The White Lotus and Pam & Tommy; He has also participated in films such as Noticias del gran mundo or La mujer de la viento, among others. And speaking of Kraven’s family, Russell Crowe’s role in the film has been leaked, since he will be in charge of playing Kraven’s father and, in turn, Chameleon, Nikolai Kravinoff.
Kraven the Hunter will be directed by J.C. Chandor, director of other films such as The Most Violent Year or Triple Frontier, under a script by Matt Holloway (writer of Iron Man, Transformers: The Last Knight or Uncharted). Kraven the Hunter will hit theaters on January 13, 2023.
