Kraven the Hunter
Sony announced in August 2018, they have hired a writer, Richard Wenk, to develop a movie for Kraven the Hunter. Wenk is famous for writing Equalizer 2 (movie in July 2018).
Kraven first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man vol 1 #15 (August 1964) published by Marvel Comics written by Stan Lee and drawn by Steve Ditko. Kraven after ingesting potion from unknown jungle herbs, got Ultra Instinct abilities. The potion slows down his aging. He has the ability to withstand injury. The potion enhances his sight, smell and hearing.
Kraven belong to the Sinister Six team ( a team includes Dr. Octopus, Vulture, Electro, Mysterio and Sandman). He lives by a code. He hunts his game fairly. Kraven wants to beat Spider-Man fair and square. He doesn’t want anyone to help him defeat Spider-Man. His famous storyline is “Kraven’s Last Hunt”. The movie will be based on that storyline. It was 6-part storyline that ran through Web of Spiderman 31-32, Amazing Spider-man 293-294 and Spectacular Spider-man 131-132. Web of Spiderman 31 is part 1. This comic book was sold for $120 on Sept 18 and Sept 25.
I am looking forward to this movie. I enjoyed reading Spider-man comic books when I was little, still enjoy reading them now. Not quite sure how they are going to make a movie without Spider-Man or maybe Sony will include him. Venom movie don’t have Spider-Man but Venom movie did great in the box office.
