Although Morbius didn’t live up to expectations, Sony’s Marvel universe is still set to expand with the addition of new projects, such as Kraven the Hunter. The upcoming Spider-Man spin-off is headlined by Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass, Avengers: Age of Ultron), and it is set to tackle the origin story of the titular Marvel villain.
Taylor-Johnson is joined by a stellar cast that includes Russell Crowe, Christopher Abbott, and Ariana DeBose, along with Alessandro Nivola as its main villain. The exact plot details of the movie are still being kept under wraps, but the lead actor teased that part of this movie would be about “humanizing” Kraven and showing that “he has flaws” as he learns about himself.
Now, ahead of its premiere in 2023, the film’s villain actor has revealed many notable details about his character and its story.

Alessandro Nivola, who is reported to play the main villain of Sony Pictures’ Kraven the Hunter, sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to talk about the upcoming Spider-Man spin-off.
On a side note, THR also referenced a past interview with Moon Knight villain actor Ethan Hawke, who is also Nivola’s neighbor, where he told them a story of how he bumped into Oscar Isaac at a Brooklyn coffee shop and left with a Marvel role.
When the outlet pointed out his history with Kraven director J.C. Chandor, Nivola reflected on his past working relationship with him on A Most Violent Year. Kraven the Hunter is set to premiere in theaters on January 13, 2023.
